Allow syncing with Zotero group libraries

My collegue and I are loving Overleaf, but we'd like to keep a combined library for each paper/project we use (and we'd like to avoid having to share our full Zotero library (which also cleans up the autocomplete for references)). The best solution for this is to have a Group Library with Zotero, but we can't add any library .bib files except one of our full library.

Integrating Overleaf with Mendeley has this Group library feature, but Mendeley has some downsides which make using it painful.

    Thanks for the feedback! Now that we’ve done this with Mendeley, Zotero is next in line (but there are other things we will need to finish first). In the mean time, the best workaround I can offer is to use Mendeley or Citeulike.

        +1 - this is a feature I would've expected. "Use mendeley" is not a workaround.

        Hi. I would like to know what technical problem has the Zotero API that is causing a delay of this proper integration of Overleaf and Zotero groups. Being Zotero an open source project, it should be fixable, shouldn't it? Thanks.

        C'mon guys, one year later and the integration with Zotero still lacks this basic feature. You are better than that...

        Is this working yet? I can't seem to find a way to do this.
