Block the "shortcut" sync feature from SharePoint

Any way to do this, it's confusing customers. I'd rather have the separation of a SharePoint sync over a "shortcut" in a customer's OneDrive.

Hi @MarcusFugett-0922,

1)If you want to hide the sync button in SharePoint library:

Go to Library Settings> Advanced Settings> Scroll down to the middle of the page, and under Offline Client Availability, select No (default is Yes)> Click OK at the bottom:

You will now notice that the library lacks a Sync Button:

2)If you want to disable sync at the Site level, please go to Site information> View all site settings> Click on Search and offline availability under Search:

Under Offline Client Availability select No:

Now you will see the Sync button disappear from all libraries located on this site.
