Our organisation has been using syncthing sporadically and it has been something of a disaster. There is only one IT guy who knows how to get a share working on a new members machine, and when he is not available, its not possible to sync.

Or perhaps the new user sends an email to an admin, along with their device Id, and the admin logs intot he server, and does the link from the other end?
