Microsoft has provided a comprehensive overview of all recent OneDrive updates and feature releases that have come to OneDrive between April and June 2022. An update to our previous article where we covered everything new in OneDrive from January to March.
We’ll start with updates to OneDrive in April. Microsoft has added a “Your Teams” section to the “More Locations” page to help users find and work with all of their files in one convenient location. Users were also given the option to delete large folders (with up to 10,000 items) at once.
Users are now free to comment on video and audio files provided they have been granted viewing permissions. This goes a long way in promoting efficiency and effectiveness in this new hybrid working world, especially when working on a project with a large number of contributors.
In May, Microsoft simplified the process of switching between a work and personal account for the user. All you have to do is select your profile picture at the top right of the OneDrive page, then you can select the particular account you want to use. Apart from that, a drop-down list has been integrated into OneDrive and SharePoint which basically allows the user to “switch between multiple document libraries associated with a Teams team or SharePoint site”.
And finally, users can pin shared libraries to the Quick Access menu. This is intended to allow them to easily locate and access places where they frequently work.
As for June. Microsoft OneDrive received a ton of features. For example, the ability to search for files in Teams. “You can also switch between document libraries associated with specific Teams channels (standard or private) directly in Microsoft Teams and access your files as you would directly in OneDrive and SharePoint.”
In addition to this, users can add a shortcut to OneDrive in Teams, which gives them quick access in OneDrive to Teams, especially to files they frequently interact with. It’s also worth noting that any changes you make to these files in Teams will also be synced across the board.
Other key features include OneDrive Sync for macOS admin reports in the public preview, the ability to rename shortcuts, and access to your Teams standard and private channel files. Be sure to check out the blog post and learn more about these and other OneDrive features on Microsoft Tech Community.
