Get started with OneDrive for Business

What is OneDrive for Business?

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

OneDrive for Business gives you one place to store, share, and sync your work or school files.

As part of your organization's Office 365 subscription, or SharePoint Server, you can save your files in OneDrive and then work with them from almost any device.

Sign in to Office 365 with your work or school account, so you can:

  • Upload files from your PC or Mac.

  • Share files with others.

  • Give others permission to edit files and work on them at the same time.

  • Get to your files from anywhere, on your computer, tablet, or phone.

  • Sync OneDrive for Business to your PC or Mac, so you can access your files even when you're offline.

OneDrive for Business is a great place to store, share, and sync your work or school files.

As part of your organization’s Office 365 subscription, or SharePoint Server, you can save your files in OneDrive and then work with them from any device.

To get started, go to OneDrive for Business in a web browser. Sign in to Office 365, and in the App launcher, select OneDrive. If you’re not on Office 365, use the web address your admin gave you. 

To add files, click Upload, or you can drag files from your computer straight to OneDrive.

All your files are private unless you decide to share them.

If your organization allows it, you can share with partners outside your organization.

And the icon and description show you which files you’ve shared.

When you give a coworker permission to edit, you can both work on the file at the same time.

With your files in OneDrive, you can get to them through a browser on any device. But, on a phone or tablet, you’ll get the best experience with the OneDrive app, available for Android, iOS, or Windows Phone.

You can add, manage, and share files from the app.

And with the Office apps installed, you can also create and edit Office documents right on your mobile device.

You can also sync OneDrive for Business to your PC or Mac, so you can access your files even when you’re offline.

If you make changes to files while you’re offline, those changes are automatically synced the next time you connect to OneDrive.
