OneDrive Known Folder move workflow

Hello All, 

I was wondering if anyone here has been able to successfully implement OneDrive Known folder move?

We are trying to move user's Desktop and Documents folders to OneDrive, without any user interaction, we have tried to apply these settings using the Applications and Custom settings payload, we can see the CP in System preferences Profiles but nothing changes in Onedrive. Other settings like hide dock icon and open at login are successfully applied with the same CP.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
  <dict>
    <key>KFMBlockOptOut</key>
    <true/>
    <key>KFMOptInWithWizard</key>
    <string>xxxxxxxxx</string>
    <key>KFMSilentOptIn</key>
    <string>xxxxxxxxx</string>
    <key>HideDockIcon</key>
    <true/>
    <key>OpenAtLogin</key>
    <false/>
  </dict>
</plist> 

 Here is the sample of the plist created in the CP.

Thanks,

Yeah, you're right @andrew_nicholas. Curious to know your guys' thoughts on this OneDrive redirect. Do you and your users like the experience?

What version of OneDrive are you using on the Mac? Once updated to the latest on the current channel, it worked for us.

Is your ORG migrated to M365? When you open OneDrive, did your users need to authenticate?

On the testing machine we are on version 22.166.0807.

Yes we are on O365, when reopen Onedrive it did not ask to authenticate.

Hi @mvu so you are using an insider version? Is this why it is working for you?

Thanks,

Yeah. Can you kick a Mac or two over for testing with this CP?

Hello @mvu yes it worked, I also had to add a PPPC to give OneDrive Full disk access, and it is working now.

Thanks for your help!

Is this in the general release ring yet? The below article makes it sound like it is still only available on the insiders release ring only, so unless that is what you are deploying I'm not sure it will work.

To be truthful, we don't generally permit the insider release. There are enough problems in the day without adding in 2 hours of troubleshooting only to remember that one user is on an essentially preview version of an app.
