In this video, Jess Stratton gives you a very brief overview of what Microsoft OneDrive is, and what is can do for them. She'll talk about every topic she will discuss in detail throughout the course.
- [Instructor] Microsoft OneDrive for Business is a tool to help you store and collaborate on files with your coworkers. In addition to storing and backing up your Microsoft Office files in the Cloud, you can add any file type to your storage area. For example, photos, logos, or PDF files. In addition to just saving your files online, with Microsoft Office Online, you can edit these documents right from your browser, as well as create new documents and save them to your OneDrive for Business account. Collaboration is a huge part of OneDrive for Business.
You can share your files with coworkers and other external users if your IT department allows it. Once you've shared these documents, you can also work simultaneously with them in the browser if you allow editing. This is much more efficient than emailing attachments back and forth. You'll always know where to find your files and that you have the most recent version of your file. Finally, you can do all of this without even having to open up a browser window. You can back up and sync your files with the OneDrive for Business desktop client.
You can save them to OneDrive directly from here and you can also work with them directly in the Microsoft Office desktop apps themselves. This is a very quick overview of what you can do with OneDrive for Business. In the upcoming videos, I'm going to show you how to use all of these features.
