One Drive Business Shared a user account / Sync to multiple computers and mobile


I want to create an E3 Account in 365 and shared it's One Drive to multiple devices / computer. This will be a secondary account for couples of users.

I want the folder accessible on Mobile and Laptops.

I can with the new One Drive on iPhone / iPad connect to 2 Business Accounts into One Drive Business. This will work. But on the computer I can only access One OneDrive Business Account. The only way to have this synced on the computer I need to use the Sharepoint "team" Document, this will sync on the computer, but the ipad and iPhone will not be able to access it easily.

Questions : Is there a way to shared a personal business account and have sync on the computer like a sharepoint shared folder ?

Do you have any other suggestion to have a folder shared on both iPhone and Laptop with multiple users ?

OneDrive is for personal files, occasionally shared with others. If the primary goal is collaboration, use a regular SharePoint team site, or the new Modern Groups that offer OneDrive element.

the primary goal it's collaboration on multiple device, iPhone / iPad / Laptop, Sharepoint team site it's not mobile friendly like One Drive.

I found a workaround working properly.

I setup an E3 Account, ex : Account
I log in 365, initialize One Drive.
Create a Folder name Docs. Share Docs with the user required access.
Instruct the users when the receive the invitation to "Sync" on their local computer the Shared Docs. This will provide the laptop / computer Sync.

On the iPhone / iPad, add the E3 Account Previously create in One Drive (secondary account). This will provide the access from the Mobile to the One Drive. Instruct your users to save all their documents into the Folders Docs create earlier..

All is sync, iPhone, iPad, Android and so on.
