Have an issue, there are two accounts in Office 365. In the first one, there is a shared folder.  Person A shares it with Person B.  When Person B logins in to their OneDrive WEB account, the shared folder shows up under "Shared With Me", but is not downloading to their local workstation.  I would like the shared folder that Person A setup and shared to be automatically downloaded to Person B's local machine so they can work on the files without going through the web browser.  Help
