How to sync shared folders in OneDrive

Hi All,
I am migrating a small business to OneDrive and have an issue. I moved folders from Employee1's PC to OneDrive, waited for the sync to complete, logged in and shared the folders to Employee2 through the OneDrive website.

I log into Employee2's OneDrive account and can see the shared folders under OneDrive > Shared with me but cannot sync the folders to the PC - I do not see any option to 'Sync' or 'Add to my OneDrive' (attached).

What am I missing?

I learned the correct answer is you cannot share folders in One Drive O365 so local copies of files/folders will sync with each individual's computer. The solution is to:
1. Create a folder in SharePoint that is shared with the desired individuals.
2. Upload the folders then on each user's PC,
3. Log in to their O365 account and navigate to SharePoint > (shared folder) > Documents and click the Sync button above the list of folders.  This will initiate the sync of the files/folders in SharePoint with the PC using the OneDrive program on that PC

It's done from the root of the share, and you need to select a folder before the button will show up.
