    Along these lines, it's really important that Word recognize when you open a document through the Finder that is located within a OneDrive or Sharepoint folder which is synced via OneDrive, and enable the Autosave functionality that is already present! Right now, it will ONLY enable Autosave if that file is opened directly from the "online" portion of the Open dialog within Word, which is very clunky and not user-friendly (it's slow to load, doesn't display ALL of my files, and also can't be sorted at all).

    I am finding this to be quite an annoyance as well. I would love for Word to recognize that OneDrive is installed on the Mac and access my Finder-based OneDrive and Sharepoint documents as if they were "online", which it only does properly when you go through the Open dialog within Word and select from "online" sources. While this is OK sometimes, you cannot even sort the Open dialog within Word to arrange by modified date, or search... it is not at all user-friendly, and it should "just work" when opening any file in a synced folder directly from Finder.
