Microsoft 365 OneDrive provides secure, flexible storage for your working files

December 8, 2020 — 

Most staff and faculty in the university are now licensed to use Microsoft 365, which includes the core Office suite (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook) and many new tools and services. One of the new tools available to staff is Microsoft OneDrive 

OneDrive makes it easy to collaborate, manage, and share your documents from anywhere and any device. You can use OneDrive as your primary place for secure file storage, syncing, and sharing.* It’s easy to use and flexible enough so you can organize OneDrive to suit your needs. 

OneDrive gives you:   

  • Access to your files at any time, from anywhere, on your favorite devices  
  • The ability to share files with UM and non-UM colleagues 
  • Easy co-authoring without the hassle of saving multiple versions  
  • Seamless integration with your favorite Office apps  
  • Trusted security features you can rely on 
  • Intelligent recommendations to help you quickly find files based on what you are working on and who you are working with  
  • A fast, intuitive browser, mobile, PC and Mac experience  

OneDrive’s online storage system makes it simple to create, upload, share and edit files from your desktop, favorite browser, or your mobile devices.
