It’s worth emphasizing at this point. When coauthoring a document, you can start with OneDrive for Business, which is better for light sharing with a few people. Later on, you may want to use a team site document library, which is better for wider review and easier distribution. The simplest way to move a Word document from OneDrive for Business to a team site library is to use the Save As command.

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

Try it!

  1. In Word 2016, click File, then Save As.

  2. Locate the team site document library, for example, click Sites-Contoso, Contoso.
