INFO: What is OneDrive

Description: What is OneDrive and how does it integrate into Microsoft Office

OneDrive is Microsoft's Cloud Storage Platform. OneDrive allows you to save your files to a server in the cloud, allowing you to access those files from anywhere with an internet connection. Microsoft also integrates OneDrive into Microsoft Office 2013 and newer, allowing easy access to your files from any computer, smartphone, or tablet that has an internet connection

OneDrive allows for more than one authorized person to access Office files at the same time on different devices without creating conflicts

In order to use OneDrive with Microsoft Office you need to sign in to your Microsoft Account and have the OneDrive application on your computer (if not already part of your operating system), smartphone, or tablet. Newer updates to Microsoft Office also integrate OneDrive options into the program menus

OneDrive is already included with Microsoft Windows
