        The shortcuts are only synched when clicking on the "browse" button from Save As or Open in the Office client.

        I heard a rumor this feature is being deprecated, however i think that it should be reconsidered. Our employees want a easy way to save to their sharepoint sites. Mapped drives loose connections on reboots. Bring this functionality back!

        Still no action on this? I've 6000 users who can't be bothered to save anything to Sharepoint because it's much easier to save it to the 'team drive' (network share). Why is this such a massive oversight?!
