New OneDrive Features

If you haven’t had a chance to utilize Microsoft’s OneDrive sync, you need to. This makes your files accessible
from any of your connected devices. Whether it’s memos, presentations, photos, videos; it’s increasingly important for us to stay productive and stay connected. Remember, while it’s handy to sync with OneDrive, always use a third party backup system for when you need to recover your work.

We’ve all been there when you ask “Where can I find that file?” It can be frustrating if you don’t know the exact name or location of the file you are looking for. Worse yet, if you don’t have access to the location and you need to jump through a few hoops to get there, then wait on someone with super powers to give you the access
you need to get your work done. Microsoft added a new feature called

“Add to OneDrive” that makes it easy to add shared files directly to your OneDrive. Shared folders include content that others shared with you through their OneDrive or content that is part of your shared library in Microsoft Teams or SharePoint.

Not only can you bring all your shared content into one place, but you can also work with the shared content
with the same power and flexibility as if they are your own files. So, feel free to sync, share and collaborate on
those files. Existing security and compliance policies will remain in tact. This rollout will be enabled in your
tenants by default with the option for admins to opt out if they choose.

Teams sharing integration—Microsoft is striving to make the experience familiar across all apps. When you go to share a file from within Teams, you’ll have the option to create sharing links that provide access to anyone.

Move and keep sharing—as documents make their way through a workflow from creation to review to final, and everywhere in between. Now, all business users who had original access to a file will be re-added to it if that file changes shared library locations. Those users will receive a link maintaining the same permissions they had and a notification about the move.

Previously, business users had a 15GB upload file size limit, now it’s 100GB in OneDrive and SharePoint! Bring on those hefty 3D, CAD and media files!

Dark mode for the web—Dark Mode for OneDrive is also available. Aside from aesthetic appeal, Dark Mode reduces eye strain and improves your device’s battery life.

File protection and governance is always a top priority for us. Improvements include: Microsoft Information Protection sensitivity labels with protection, automatic classification with sensitivity labels, multifactor authentication policies, and extending continuous access evaluations to OneDrive and SharePoint.
