Does Microsoft have plans for more sharepoint integration with OS X?

    I'm super excited about the Betas of Office 2016 and now turn my attention to Sharepoint. On my Lenovo I have a folder called Sharepoint where I can store all my synced Sharepoint Site Documents similar to DropBox. That functionality doesn't exist on OS X now and Microsoft has used Office Document Connection to try and mimic this. This biggest issue is Offline folder access. That is key for me. Does anyone know if there has been any talk on making Sharepoint documents in OS X more like Windows? Everything I google talks about Document Connection. Thanks!

    IMHO, I doubt it. I checked the Office 365 Roadmap page occasionally and really see only minor updates and revisions. Here's the web page:

    Rather, I see more pages like this one:

    MS is really pushing Yammer (down people's throats?), and some of the Sharepoint features in my Office 365 portals have been deprecated to Admin users only, and for maintenance only. I'm guessing we'll see more Yammer features trickle down after Win 10 comes out and as Office 365 matures over the next 4-12 months.
