Getting to Know OneDrive for Business

Image Credit: Microsoft Office Support

What is OneDrive for Business? OneDrive for Business (OneDrive) is a Microsoft product that provides users with a place to store, edit, and share their files online in the cloud. Users are able to access their files from various devices (PC, tablets, phones, etc.), edit documents offline or online, and sync files from their computers to their cloud account. Users can also create new Office documents (e.g., Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote) easily.

History OneDrive for Business has been improving with every Office update.

SharePoint Workspace (Office 2010)

SkyDrive Pro (Office 2013)

OneDrive for Business (Office 2016)

Who at Century has an OneDrive for Business account? OneDrive is part of your Century Office 365 subscription package and works with myCentury (our SharePoint site). All Century employees and registered students have a OneDrive for Business account. Students who graduate from Century retain their OneDrive for Business account for one year after their graduation date.

What does OneDrive for Business do for Century students? An online alternative to the network drives (e.g., H Drive).

Eliminates the need to add a network location (e.g., H Drive) on their personal computer.

Makes it easy to edit and share documents without sending emails with file attachments.

Allows multiple people to work on the same document at the same time.

Allows people to access, retrieve, restore, and manage older versions of documents.

Gives us the ability to embed our Office files in other documents like a PowerPoint presentation.

Makes it easy for us to save Office files directly into our OneDrive account. IMPORTANT:

To take advantage of all of OneDrive for Business features (e.g., mass uploads of folders and files), open your OneDrive for Business account in the Internet browser Google Chrome.
