- Files can be shared outside of your organisation (again depending on the settings managed by your administrators).
- Outlook now allows sharing OneDrive files via attachment or link. Note that links gives the people you send it to permissions to edit.
- OneDrive for Business can be accessed Online and/or synced to your PC (you will see it in your File Explorer) as well as through an App on your phone.
- OneDrive for Business can be purchased as standalone plans separate from Office 365.

Purpose of this blog challenge:
I will write 365 blogs in 365 days around Microsoft 365. I did a similar challenge with Office 365, blogs can be found here. I won’t just be talking about the new Microsoft 365 subscription model. I will be sharing any news, tips and tricks around Office / Office 365 / Windows / Mobility and Security. And let’s not forget all the great new Apps & services available. A lot of what I’ll share on Office and SharePoint will also be applicable to none “Office 365” versions.
Feel free to #AskBraam if you have questions or would like me to write about a specific topic. I’ve created a Flow to monitor Twitter for the #AskBraam hashtag and will try my best to incorporate any questions into the blogs, or answer them directly on Twitter. This is a “Learning through Sharing” approach to teach my pet sheep about Microsoft — read more on this here.
