Today we’re focused on Microsoft OneDrive, a cloud storage tool that provides an easy way to save your files in the cloud and access them from anywhere. Do you ever get tired of sending attachments back and forth via email? What about files that are too large to send? With OneDrive, you can easily share files to other members of your team and people outside of your organization! Here’s how Microsoft describes this service:
Designed for business—access, share, and collaborate on all your files from anywhere. Work faster and smarter with anyone inside or outside your organization. Securely share files and work together in real time using Word, Excel, and PowerPoint across web, mobile, and desktop.
OneDrive enables “work from anywhere”.
With the increase of hybrid work environments, it’s not as easy to access a shared drive that’s hosted a server at the office. With OneDrive, your files are available on all your devices, and even online from any web browser! The best part? OneDrive is deeply integrated with Microsoft Teams, enabling you to be productive wherever you are in the world.
OneDrive is useful for groups and individuals.
OneDrive is useful for individuals and groups looking to collaborate. You can securely share files and work together in real time using Word, Excel, and PowerPoint across web, mobile, and desktop. Working in a group setting? Sharing files with OneDrive allows multiple people to collaborate on the same file at the same time. No more emailing multiple versions of files around, and then worrying about consolidating everyone’s individual changes!
Deep integrations with the tools you already use.
OneDrive is deeply integrated with Microsoft Teams, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Did you know you can access your OneDrive files directly from the Teams app? Create, view, edit, and share files on the go with the OneDrive mobile app. Easily capture whiteboards and scan work receipts, business cards, and other paper documents for safekeeping.
