In a blog post Microsoft today detailed new features coming to their OneDrive for Business product which means OneDrive files can be accessed off-line from even more endpoints.
The update includes:
- Syncing SharePoint sites and OneDrive for Business shared folders— The ability to sync SharePoint Online team sites directly to OneDrive makes doing this easier and simpler for users. Additionally, you can now sync a OneDrive for Business shared folder.
- Standalone Mac client— The standalone client allows admins to control features like enabling sync status as well as visual overlays in Finder, adding a Finder shortcut for OneDrive, and the ability to set up OneDrive sync to run at sign in. This latest client also has built-in multi-language support.
- Activity center— The activity center is now available in the latest OneDrive sync client for Windows and Mac—giving you detailed visibility to the most recent sync activity and status.
Also included in the update is an improved OneDrive admin center, equipping IT administrators with better access for managing sharing and sync interactions between workers.
The coming updates will also soon include their iOS and Android apps and would merge Outlook with OneDrive for Business, allowing users to more easily attach their OneDrive files to email.
