Tools: Office 365 / SharePoint
Description: Getting started with OneDrive for Business

I think before we get started, I’d like to cover the basics for those not sure what OneDrive is.

Microsoft has 2 versions – OneDrive (Personal) and OneDrive for Business. OneDrive supplies users a place where they can store, share and sync their work files. Similar to your File Share / Dropbox it’s storage that is NOT on your own PC.

In my example I’ve logged into my Office 365 account, where I’ll click on OneDrive.

In your OneDrive you’ll see your “Shared with Everyone” folder. This automatically allows everyone in your organisation to see the content you upload in that folder. Any new folders you create will only be visible to you until you change the sharing permissions. You’ll also notice the “Sync” options on the ribbon which will sync your OneDrive to your pc. This also means that your files will be available offline and will update any changes once you go online again.

Catch you tomorrow when I’ll share more tips on using your OneDrive.

Till tomorrow then….

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.
Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
