"Sin duda, gran elección para almacenamiento y edición en línea."

What do you like best?

Adquirimos el paquete Office 365, en el que se incluyen cuentas de 1TB en OneDrive for Business. Gran aplicación, gran capidad (1TB por cuenta), opción de edición en línea de la mayoría de archivos y soporte tanto en versión web, escritorio y móvil. Todo un acierto por parte de la empresa adquirir este paquete.

Una vez analizada toda la información, la opción de poder enviar archivos directamente por email desde la nube o compartirlos abiertamente o a un círculo selecto de usuarios, le da un valor añadido extra que es de agradecer.

What do you dislike?

Quizás añadiría algo más de seguridad en los procesos de identificación. Hasta ese paso, tenemos capado el acceso a las cuentas desde el exterior, siendo posible, únicamente, desde el entorno VLAN de la empresa o bien a través de nuestra VPN. Estamos en contacto con microsoft para poder modificar estos parámetros y pedir un segundo nivel de seguridad: verificación por SMS, certificado digital... cualquier opción que nos pueda dar un extra de seguridad para los archivos almacenados en la nube.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Como ya he comentado, añadir algún sistema extra de identificación. Estamos en contacto directo con Microsoft para intentar desarrollar conjuntamente una verificación extra y aportar aún más seguridad a la nube empresarial.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Por suerte no hemos tenido ningún problema. El despliegue fue sencillo y gran parte del personal sabía usarlo procedente de sus cuentas personales, por lo que fue un gran alivio poder ponerlo en producción desde el primer día.

What Business Content Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Gran inversión empresarial y gran manejo."

What do you like best?

Encontramos Microsoft OneDrive for Business en sus diferentes versiones: escritorio, móvil (Android e iOS) y, lo más importante, versión web. A través de ella, diferentes departamentos de la empresa podemos compartir información en tiempo real, pudiendo administrar documentos de manera online con salvado automático en la nube. Otra cosa que destaco de esta aplicación es la posiblidad de filtrar permisos y grupos en base a usuarios, pudiendo facilitar accesos personalizados a los diferentes recursos que se encuentran en la nube.

What do you dislike?

Como único punto negativo, pero con la finalidad de poder mejorar la aplicación, al menos en su versión empresarial, añadiría un sistema extra de seguridad al de usuario/contraseña. En según qué casos, podemos incluir información especialmente confidencial y un punto extra de seguridad en el acceso sería de agradecer: Verificación en dos pasos, SMS, vinculación con un dispositivo móvil.

Igualmente, existen sistemas de verificación en dos pasos como el de Symantec, que podría plantear la implementación e integración con MS OneDrive For Business.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Como ya he comentado, añadiría algún sistema extra de verificación en el proceso de log-in. Al margen de eso, la aplicación es perfecta.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No hemos tenido ningún problema en la implantación de la aplicación. La mayor parte de la plantilla está familiarizada con el uso particular de este servicio, por lo que no ha supuesto problema en la implantación profesional a nivel despliegue de recursos ni a nivel formación a usuarios.

"OneDrive is So Convenient"

What do you like best?

I love the convenience of OneDrive. I can access my files from any device or multiple computers. Plus, I know my files are always backed up. I also like the ability to quickly view a file online if I don't need a ton of features I can make quick changes right there.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes saving files can be a bit sluggish. If there are a lot of formulas, tabs, calculations, etc. in and Excel workbook it can take quite a while to save the file as it recalculates all the formulas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you pay attention to dates of the most recent file update and who made the last changes so that you know you are always working with the current file.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company uses OneDrive for file sharing. We all have access to everything we need at a moment's notice. If someone updates a file, it will let you know when it was last saved so you can always make sure you are working on the most recent file.

"We Couldn't Run Our Business Without It!"

What do you like best?

We are all remote and need to be able to share documents. This allows us to have public and private files without loading up our computer hard drives and relying on e-mail. It is always quick, never freezes, and I've never lost data.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, I can't think of anything I dislike. The only thing that can be a little frustrating is that sometimes files can sort of get lost and you have to dig to find them and move them to the correct folder.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would die without Onedrive Notes! Everyone who is a note taker should definitely get the OneDrive suite.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Connecting our company is not an easy task. We are spread out all over the west coast and only 3 of our guys are in are central office. The rest of us work from home. This allows us to keep all our reports in one central place and not lose any information if a computer crashes.

"Good way to share files "

What do you like best?

Useful to share files while giving presentation instead of storing it in outlook. Also, easy to access , no need of multiple drives to share files with different departments. You can control who can see those files.

What do you dislike?

Not much as of now as its been only a few months that I have started using it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very Convenient in usage across the network. With so much storage available, I rarely use my local drives for file storage. I can easily use my large files for all presentation purposes just by logging into the network. Also, sharing a file with users is very easy. It syncs easily with SharePoint. I can sync the file with share point and it easily handles the updates between one drive and SharePoint securely. With Enormous cloud storage available, I dont think I would run out of space anytime.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Replaced multiple drives and used it in single drive. ease of use.

"A+ storage"

What do you like best?

Microsoft one drive is great. Its awesome. No complaints. It could store my car and I could not love it more. One drive allows for offline storage of your files which would take up valuable space on your computer. These files could keep you from saving your loved ones photos, video games, or even more files. However, uploading them to one drive keeps your computer clutter free and running smoothly

What do you dislike?

no dislikes here! sometime s one drive does not support upload of all file formats, and those formats seem to be quite large but as long as your computer never crashes you're good

Recommendations to others considering the product

do it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When computers unexpedly crash and have not been backed up for a while, onedrive comes in handy. It auto upoads your files fo ryou dso you do not have ot manually backup your computer ever again. IT automatically and quickly uploads all secure data.

"Access your files from anywhere with OneDrive"

What do you like best?

I like that I can access my files from anywhere when using OneDrive. As someone who works on-site, from home, and just about anywhere, I need to be able to access my files easily. Also, if I don't have my own PC with me, I can log on to OneDrive through an internet browser and access my files in that way. I like that I have a place to store them that isn't taking up a lot of space on my PC.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that files show up in the Microsoft programs online and I have to download them and open them via the app at times. I would rather they just open up in the app....but I guess then I would have to save them to the Drive gain. So editing right within the online program will keep the files up-to-date through OneDrive. Other than that, I don't have any complaints!

Recommendations to others considering the product

GIve it a try!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I actually relied on OneDrive last week as I was very sick and contagious and had to work from home unexpectedly. I was able to access files that I would not otherwise have prepared to bring off campus with me when working from home. It really was a lifesaver! In addition, coworkers have shared files with me through OneDrive and we can all access those that have been shared with us. Quite a convenience for shared documents and projects.

"Get's the Job Done"

What do you like best?

With the evergrowing stack of Microsoft products, I love how One Drive interacts with all the other Microsoft products, such as Outlook and Flow. One drive is quick and easy to set up on any server to allow for a place to pass through data. For example, I can use Flow to automatically grab and e-mail attachment and place it in a One Drive folder that is connected to an Azure VM and then SQL Server ingests and pushes to Power BI. I can also sync multiple accounts if you are in an org where you have multiple tenants.

What do you dislike?

There is not much that I really dislike. I am using it for super basic functionality, so I have not run into anything where I have an issue. I have not experienced any slowness at all.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give is a try. More than likely you already have an O365 in your org, so it is pretty much free - it would be a waste not to. At least use it for archiving files instead of buying a new HDD.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As mentioned before, using it as a shared location for automating file storage that is available on multiple servers, including a database server as well as locally if I need to overwrite. Additionally, with O365 Pro accounts, I get a TON of storage, which is great compared to other products, like Google, Box, etc. that I would have to pay for additionally.

"Accessible File Storage and Sharing"

What do you like best?

All our documents are backed up on the Cloud, so I don't have to worry about what would happen if something happened to our hardware. I also don't have to worry about progress being lost if we don't manually click save since it saves automatically.

What do you dislike?

I honestly don't have any personal critiques of OneDrive. Older people in our office sometimes struggle to get into the shared folder, but it is easy enough to guide them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can share a folder containing our most used files with all office staff so everyone has access to the most up-to-date versions. We can also collaborate on projects more easily since it syncs automatically. I used to host all of the documents for our small business on my computer and anytime someone needed a document, I had to either send it to them or print it myself. This alone has saved me a lot of time.

"Great File Storage & Collaboration Tool for Small Business"

What do you like best?

It is easy to use and allows all employees across multiple offices to share documents. Also, the ability to access documents from various devices easily provides greater efficiency among our small organization. The ability to share documents among different employees or all employees is a great feature. For example, we have some documents/folders that all employees can access and then others that just the executive management team can access. I like that the files are located in the cloud so we won't have to worry about a hard drive going out.

What do you dislike?

We had some bugs with the software when we first started using it and because of this some employees have been slow adapters. We don't always sync all of our documents/folders due to the size and the drain it can put on our computers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend this product for a small business that is looking for a low cost solution for file storage needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Greater efficiency in accessing documents and the ability to collaborate easily among employees working in different locations. OneDrive has decreased the need to email documents to users and then have different versions of documents floating around. Prior to OneDrive, we used an external hard drive for file storage but the hard drive crashed and that is when we found that the redundant drive had some issues as well. We had to hire a company to get the data from the drives. We are a small company with no IT department so having OneDrive for Business works great for our organization.

"OneDrive Usage"

What do you like best?

What we like most about OneDrive for Business is how easily compatible it is with Microsoft Outlook, which is the platform we use for Emailing systemwide. Essentially there is no set-up involved, and everything syncs with incredible smoothness. We never have an issue with storage capacity, and we can always monitor whether or not teams have access to what we need.

What do you dislike?

The biggest dislike of OneDrive for business is with the Microsoft platform over all. The cloud version of documents, excel, and other programs doesn't allow for smooth editing and there's always loading delays associated with this cloud feature that we don't seem to have an issue with when using Google Drive and Dropbox.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would say whatever could be done to improve processing performance, but perhaps that's a local issue.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest business problem we solve is cost. Because we're able to use OneDrive with our Microsoft Outlook agreement, we don't need our entire network of 500+ employees using and paying for Dropbox. Instead, OneDrive carries a heavy load of this work and allows us to exchange documents like lesson plans for review.

"Easy File Sharing"

What do you like best?

There's a local folder in my computer and I can easily create or drag documents and files into it to share them with other people, as well as accessing them in other laptops. It's great for sharing Company related docs since our firewall blocks other file sharing sites.

What do you dislike?

Although the web display is very clear and the navigation is clean and easy, I would like to see the thumbnails of my images and PDF files. It's very tiring to examine each media element one by one. I would recommend adding a thumbnail view.

Recommendations to others considering the product

All of the company must be implementing Microsoft products at the same time, otherwise it would be a waste. For example, if you're already an Outlook user this is the natural option for a file sharing and storage service.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Large file sharing

- File sharing through corporate firewalls and proxys

- Sharing of files that can't be attached via email (.exe, .ipa, .apk)

"Gran aplicación para poder llevar un buen control."

What do you like best?

Tenemos delante uno de los mejores desarrollos que Microsoft ha podido hacer. Evidentemente, hablamos de MS OneDrive For Business.

Gran aplicación para poder almacenar y editar ficheros en línea, y lo mejor es que no tienen que ser, obligatoriamente, en formatos de Microsoft para su versión online. Es un gran avance poder contar con un sistema de gestión de acceso a ficheros com MS OneDrive, y dada su conectividad vía versión escritorio, web y apps para Android e iOS, permiten el acceso y la gestión de cualquier fichero allá donde se esté.

Igualmente, su opción de almacenamiento en la nube de 1TB por cuenta, es algo que los trabajadores de la empresa han agradecido, ya que los discos duros de los equipos se encuentran encriptados y es un alivio para estos poder tener la información relacionada con su trabajo en este dispositivo.

What do you dislike?

Como único punto negativo, simplemente diría que, para la versión Business, podrían ampliar la seguridad para acceder a la aplicación. Quizás un cifrado para un acceso con certificado digital interno podría ser un gran avance. Igualmente, implantar algún sistema de encriptación de los archivos sería algo más que recomendable para poder confirmar la privacidad y el buen acceso a los datos que se encuentran en los ficheros que se encuentran en la nube.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Modificaría lo ya citado de la forma de acceso y la encriptación de los datos que se encuentran en la nube.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No hemos tenido ningún problema para implantar la aplicación en los ordenadores de la empresa. Se envió el paquete de actualización y las instalaciones no reportaron ninguna incidencia.

"OneDrive: Apps United"

What do you like best?

The part that I like best about it is simply the fact that it lives up to its name. It does unite all the apps into a single drive where you can access them all at once without having to bookmark all different links, nor does one have to go through multiple menus. A single click leads to the app that you need, making it very handy and efficient.

What do you dislike?

Although all the apps are readily available on the main page, it's still a bit challenging to navigate through the different apps themselves. Quick note too that single sign-on (checking the box that says you'd want them to save your credentials so you don't have to keep logging in) rarely works so this is a downside to it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely recommend it! For others considering it, make sure to train your employees on how to use the various apps within it. All the different apps (syncing them all) could be quite confusing. You can also use Facebook and Twitter as comparison for apps like Sharepoint and Yammer. It would make it more relatable for employees if introduced that way.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This solves the problem of keeping too many links bookmarked and too much time wasted on updating different files. It makes way for a seamless syncing of files, making workflow more efficient and organized.

"Store and share files in the cloud with onedrive for companies"

What do you like best?

What I like the most is how easy it is to access it and share it. Access and synchronize files files in the cloud, or synchronize local copies of offline files to edit them and view them on my pc. Really with this tool I work faster and more intelligently inside or outside the organization. Using the integrated search has been very useful because it allows me to find the most relevant files, as well as allow other users to allow them to visualize mine.

What do you dislike?

There are some details that I know that Onedrive for companies can improve, one of those details is that the application is so accessible that any user can access my information and, in some cases, violate the intellectual property of certain information that I consider confidential, another detail it would be, that sometimes the application becomes slow to perform various functions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it because it is easy, simple and saves time and space on the pc, besides that the cloud is updated automatically, really one drive has been very useful for our organization. Puedo permanecer conectado a mis archivos y carpetas desde cualquier lugar. I would also recommend it for being an application that allows to have the information stored in the cloud in an orderly way, and that gives me the freedom to store photos, texts, books, etc. It is very easy and economical, which makes it accessible to any user.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I find it beneficial that the use of my onedrive files occupies less space on the computer. Besides allowing me to save time with a simple click to attach them. With One drive I have learned to be more orderly which allows me to access my files more easily when a file is requested to solve a certain mishap in the institution.

"Util y muy facil de usar"

What do you like best?

Es muy facil de utilizar. Cuenta con aplicación para instalar y sincronizar los archivos y tambien con interfaz web. Me gusta la forma en que los documentos se pueden guardar una vez y acceder a ellos en cualquier momento. La interfaz de usuario es simple y útil y los documentos se pueden guardar de la misma manera que se guardan en el ordenador, por lo que nos ahorra mucho tiempo. La usabilidad general del producto es buena, lo que es muy útil en nuestro trabajo diario.

What do you dislike?

Aunque la herramienta es bastante útil, una cosa que nos disgusta es su problema por el cual los archivos en la carpeta no se muestran instantáneamente. Esto puede ser debido a la demora en la sincronización, pero es bastante espeluznante en los momentos en que no fuimos capaces de acceder a algunos documentos importantes que fueron solicitados con bastante urgencia. Tambien tuvimos un problema con unos ficheros desaparecidos pero microsoft lo soluciono.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Una de las principales recomendaciones a la hora de considerar el producto es asegurarse de que su ancho de banda es lo suficientemente bueno como para permitir una sincronización rápida de los archivos. Puede ser problemático a veces, de lo contrario el producto es bastante bueno y puede ayudarle a resolver bastantes problemas. Además, negocie sobre las características de terceros, si están disponibles con el producto, que pueden integrar su otro software con OneDrive para que pueda facilitar su trabajo.

Traducción realizada con el traductor www.DeepL.com/Translator

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

El principal problema de negocio que pudimos resolver utilizando OneDrive fue el repositorio de documentos y el uso compartido. Un miembro del equipo puede mantener un documento en particular allí y compartirlo con todos los colegas casi instantáneamente. Esto fue muy útil. Otro problema que se resuelve es la dependencia de los sistemas locales.

"OneDrive, the power in the cloud"

What do you like best?

The possibility of saving any type of file with the certainty of not losing them, is more 100% safer than a pendrive, I own for free spends 1TB of storage, synchronize my cell phone for revision and edition of the dockets that I have stored in the cloud with the great advantage of being able to share them with colleagues or friends if you import the operating system that each one of us has installed in our computers. I have saved videos that at the moment of reproducing them the data consumption is really very inferiror if I reproduced them from another platform. Presents a backup tool of my photos published in instagram aspect that no other application has given me. I own as some friends say a great rokola since I have in the cloud more than 267 songs of my favorite artists and more than 480 photographs both family and my trips with my friends. Without a doubt, it is one of the best storage tools in the cloud.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that disgusts me, it is really very useful and provides a lot of security when it comes to safeguarding documents

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not hesitate to acquire it is one of the best ways to protect the information that is important for the organization, besides being very easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have not had any type of problems, on the contrary it has allowed me to share information with colleagues from any part of the city.

"Un gran lugar para almacenar una gran cantidad de información"

What do you like best?

Una de las mayores ventajas en que tiene esta herramienta con respecto a otra y que ofrece 25 Gb de espacio, esto es 10 GB más que Google. Aunque sin duda alguna la ventaja más importante es que sus aplicaciones son especialmente amigable con el paquete ofimático de Microsoft, luego es la mayor garantía de compatibilidad tanto en el trabajo offline como en el online.

What do you dislike?

Quizás sin falta que fuese amigable con algunas de las aplicaciones de Google u otra macroplataforma. Otro de los inconvenientes otro aspecto a tener en cuenta es que sólo es posible tener una cuenta por usuario y no permite tener una cuenta para el trabajo y otra para la familia; por ejemplo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Su sistema de actualización es más rápido y eficiente que el de Google Drive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fundamentalmente el trabajo cooperativo con los compañeros que empleamos el paquete ofimático de Microsoft. Es el más amigable desde nuestro punto de vista.

"OneDrive"

What do you like best?

I like using Onedrive a lot for business development because it is easy to use and affordable for small businesses. It offers free storage about 15GB of free storage space as well as the chance to earn extra free storage space.

It is also easy for my files organization. I can store any kind of files on there, including photos, video, and documents, and i have access from my Windows PCs or mobile device.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing particular that i don''t like about it. Overall, it is pretty easy to use. If i have to say something, I would say it might be more private to separate the administrator and users who they share documents with. Sometimes I want to share some files but not all of them. If I add someone to share, that person can see all the files which is not completely private for me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a really awesome software for business development. I highly recommend it to you or your business because it's not expensive at all and all you need is an email address. You can also share it easily with your employees.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using OneDrive to share files with other employees. It is very easy to organize all the photos and videos as well as collaborate with others. I like it a lot since everything is saved in the drive and that doesn't take my own storage spaces.

"OneDrive is the office out of the office"

What do you like best?

Sometimes you just need a useful tool to work on the road. Nowadays we have laptops, but sometimes you forget to upload or save something on a usb stick, and end up without something that you need. With OneDrive for business, all you have to do is upload everything and you good to go.

What do you dislike?

It is a "cloud" tool but lacks some of the aspects of the actual office software. Also, if you are new to this cloud thing, you won't get familiar with it very quickly. Despite having a "safety switch" offline feature, it does not keep track of your latest updates on file (for some versions). You could lose your work if not properly saved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get familiar with it before uploading everything

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can now work mobile, and during holidays even if I'm away from the office. Also saves me a lot of time, that I would otherwise spend looking into folders and more folders of files. The easiness of sharing files is also very good, can be very time saving for the team.

"Store, edit, and share your files anytime and anywhere"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that you can upload any document like formats in excel or presentations of powerpoint, you can save it in onedrive and edit it anytime you want, using multiple devices. I can manage my files using a aditional folder that I can open on my phone, my pc or even on my tablet. Onedrive in the web allows you to open word, excel and powerpoint and you can edit your files on the web, even whitout have instaled the software on your diveces. This is awesome and very usefull practily you can write and edit the document you want in any place, this is simply fantastic

What do you dislike?

It seems to me that the premium service it's a little expensive, I value all the tools in onedrive and all the possiblities but this factor may be the thing that a few group of people maybe use another files storage program. Dont get me wrong it's an excelent program but I think it have things that should change

Recommendations to others considering the product

Well I as a maintenance supervisor, I would like to recomend this program for your file storage,it's easy to use and offers tools what make your daily job in something more manageable. Offers you the possibility of upload, save, manage and edit your files of microsoft office for programs like word or excel for example, even without have installed your pc this allows you manage all your files with any device. Higly recomended

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Well I would like to tell that it's very practical, I can manage all my files everywhere I go. I am a supervisor on a company and usully I elaborete work report of the news. For my this program has been very helpfull, my coworkers recomended me and I am glad for they did it, now I can share all my documents to them and to my boss more efficiently, we have more comunication and feedback and dont have problems about lost files or constants searches in the computer triying to find inportant files. All we have to do is share our documents in Onedrive, it's easy, it's practical and it's very secure.

"Easy to use, great for work and/or students"

What do you like best?

I really like that Microsoft One Drive offers a generous amount of free storage for all of my photos, videos, documents related to work, and so on. Furthermore, it is easy to use and it helps me to stay organized and on top of my business and personal daily life.

What do you dislike?

Whenever I am editing a document in real time alongside others, sometimes the editing feature that lets you see others can get a little wonky and causes my laptop as well as theirs to experience lag.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you’re going to use Microsoft OneDrive, please take note that there is a downloadable app for IOS as well as Android devices. Using the app through these devices makes it really easy to use and you can keep track of everything for business/school/personal use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At my job, we have peer review sessions where some employees are paired together to correct/review/add onto the ideas of another employee by using the real time editing software. Using this software is crucial to the overall success of the business because it helps us to navigate the changes that are necessary to improve our ideas in a constructive and effective manner.

"My server only to store my files and images online."

What do you like best?

OneDrive uses it because it is my space and I can store and save files and images in the cloud reliably and securely, when I need them they are available. I just need an Internet connection, my Outlook email account and that's it. From any computer or device, I can upload, download, organize, copy, move, create a folder, share and exchange information about my work, my photos and videos. It is very easy to use, not to mention the synchronization of saving files, whether text, Excel workbooks or PowerPoint presentations. Works with Office Suite and any version of Microsoft Windows. Once activated on your computer, it will automatically save the images.

What do you dislike?

I do not know if it will be because of the speed of the internet that I have in the place that I am, but in my house, my work, etc. Sometimes the server is very slow and in full use stops working and I have to start again. The Other that to enlarge space must be paid especially if diarimente stores, videos and many files and perhaps its version without cost could be limited. But the rest meets my needs to keep safe copies of my photos, my texts, my books, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it because of its ability to store photos, texts, and books in the cloud reliably and securely. See how all your documents are protected online. You can have your files when you want from any mobile device or computer. It is excellent because once activated you can open and save your OneDrive documents directly from Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Also how you can free the memory of all your devices, savings in SD purchase. I forgot it gives you 5 GB of free space with an Outlook account.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Excellent server because when activated we can not worry about losing documents and images as it works as storage, it supports secure copies. In my work, it is very useful because it taxes the use of information and data communication technologies. You have to recognize how to synchronize documents with other servers and how it works so you can work with other people, in a way to share files at the same time accessing from any computer or device using the Web. Your download is free and updates are automatic.

"La solución para tener disponible mi informacion en la nube y acceder desde cualquier dispositivo"

What do you like best?

One drive tiene una capacidad de 1 tb cuando adquieres una licencia E3 de office 365 y es una de las características que mas me gusto porque mi computadora no tiene suficiente espacio y de esta forma soluciono un problema sin hacer recambio de pc frecuentemente.

tengo almacenado archivos de foto, archivos Word, Excel y powerpoint y no he tenido problemas de compatibildad

Deje de preocuparme si pierdo la información, ya que siempre en la nube tengo los archivos originales y con un historial de versiones de cada modificación

puedo comparti la informacion que quiero por el tiempo que defina y con el nivel de edicion que quiera asignar por persona. de esta forma tengo el seguimiento de quien edito que archivo.

La aplicacion One drive para sincronizar las bibliotecas de carpeta me permite trabajar en mis archivos que tengo sincronizado en la maquina aun cuando no tengo internet disponible, los edito y cuando vuelvo a conectarme se sincroniza y actualiza el archivo en onedrive agregando las modificaciones que genere fuera de linea.

La forma de uso es bastante intuitiva de verdad que no hay que ser experto en sistema para saber usarlo.

.

What do you dislike?

Cuando comparto un archivo con una persona fuera de la empresa y esta persona edita el archivo en el historial de versiones del archivo me dice "Usuario anónimo" y aveces se que le compartí el archivo a una sola persona por un link pero aveces se lo comparto a varios y no se quien hizo los cambios. esto estaría bueno hacerle un ajuste.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Que si están buscando una solución para almacenar en la nube su información evalúen Onedrive empresarial, que por el costo viene incluido soluciones de office 365 como el office y correo electrónico.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tener amplia capacidad de almacenamiento.

Disponer de mi información cuando quiero de forma online o local

Tener respaldo siempre de mis archivos y así se nos dañe un equipo sabemos que la información esta salvada.

"1TB of storage for business needs!"

What do you like best?

I just love the fact that you have 1TB of storage with your office 365 Subscription for business. That is a lot of storage space to be used, and you can easily store everything on the One Drive, making your life a lot easier. I personally synchronize my entire PC with One Drive, so if something unexpected happens with my LapTop I can easily retrieve all the data to a fresh new install of OS.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike about OneDrive for business, except maybe the new look Microsoft gave to it. Previously I could Synchronize SharePoint pages just by pasting a link to a SharePoint page into one drive app, now I have to do it from the browser. The other downside would be that when you are downloading something from OneDrive from browser speed is low, while on the other hand if you are downloading your files through OneDrive app speeds are at max. This should be even regardless which option you are using.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you own Office 365 subscription OneDrive is a must. It will make your life easier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cloud storage for confidential files, Encrypted and safely stored. That is the main purpose of OneDrive for business.

"Good base for document sharing, but to improve it on different aspects"

What do you like best?

For sure the integration with Office365 suite is a plus, including the one with LDAP groups and Sharepoint. Also the possibility to sync the shared folders on the local drive is another good feature. At the end if you are a customer of the Microsoft ecosystem you have a quite good solution.

What do you dislike?

Setting up the permissions for documents and folders is not the most easy thing to do with OneDrive. It's not very clear on the web interface which level of sharing you're setting to the document or folder. Sometimes you ruin your previous settings if you don't pay attention at the options you're prompted. When you share a folder with read/write permissions with one colleague he could set the folder public for everyone too easily. If you're invited to edit an Office document (PPT or DOC or Excel, for example) and not the folder which contains it you have difficulties to edit with local Office application, so you're forced to edit it online, which is not the best tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to be very organized with your files, to do not mess your folders and documents.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We found a way to share Sales documents and Product description documents with all the people interested in: sales, business development, product managers, marketing.

"It's Okay"

What do you like best?

I like that it connects to my other Microsoft desktop applications seamlessly, which is what I tend to use OneDrive the most for. It makes sharing industry update notes easy within the company. I also share proposed ad copy and the like through this platform -- so collaborations are easy. Property inspection photos are also easy to share internally.

What do you dislike?

OneDrive is a bit bulky on my mobile device, which seems to be perpetually low on available storage. I know this is an operator issue, but this can make mobile work less efficient.

Between that and limited data mobile plan, I can't always use the platform as I would like. I usually need to wait to get back to my office terminal to transfer large or sensitive data files such as property inspection pictures or loan applications, respectively.

While these are not issues with OneDrive per se, they effectively limit my ability to use the platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fantastic for collaborations and note sharing. Needs a large data plan or WiFi for sharing grouped photos of large size/detail.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is good for internal office collaborations and large file sharing. I tend to use this for ad design, review, and revision where we need a central digital access point between collaborators.

While I'm not a huge fan of the mobile version due to the previously stated limitations under which I have to operate, it does work well as a platform for sharing documents. I prefer the desktop/laptop terminals because they are easier for me to navigate without catching flak for exceeding data caps on company lines. This is a personal preference as others in my company have had good luck with mobile/tablet use.

"Great for Organization"

What do you like best?

I love the ability to load my documents into my OneDrive and access from any other wifi-connected computer. I don't have to only be at my work desktop to access my files which really allows for me to be more efficient while working. This would be great for individuals who work both in the office and at home or for anyone who may be off-site for meetings. Additionally, you can share files directly with other individuals from OneDrive and allow them to edit.

What do you dislike?

OneDrive has a feature that connects and syncs to your desktop. Rather than logging into OneDrive and uploading a file each time I have a new document, I am able to save in my synced folder on my desktop and it auto-loads to my OneDrive digital file. I have trouble with this feature, and most times, my file does not auto-sync from my Desktop to my OneDrive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The inconvenience of being ties to your desktop is no more! With OneDrive, my files are portable, which allows me to work at one of our three offices with ease.

"Data storage Platform "

What do you like best?

1. Easy to store and share files and folders.

2. User friendly to work on OneDrive for Business.

3. Syncing Microsoft Cloud with user Desktop to store files and folders directly from the system.

4. Protects the user data with advanced security.

5. Simultaneously work together on the same document with users.

6. Accessibility of data from Web and Mobile are convenient.

7. You can also create flow to manage the activity.

What do you dislike?

For bulk uploading on Web/Online takes more time than expected. Syncing of Sharepoint online App and OneDrive for Business App simultaneuosly with System creates many issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Your document are save in personal untill you share with others. You can also manage the sharing outside of organization people by applying expiry date on document. Most recommended.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Storing the data and sharing the files are more beneficial for organization. Securely manage the account. In Office 365, we have received 1 TB storage with Business Plans.

"All your documents on the cloud."

What do you like best?

I love using one drive, I have all my files and documents uploaded there, and if there is a need to change my main device or reinstall my operating system I can just redownload all my documents back to my device. I also love the option where you can Synchronize SharePoint pages with one drive and have all the documentation from SharePoint page downloaded to your computer.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the notifications I'm getting from OneDrive, It notifies me of what it updated and when it occurred, and I would love if OneDrive could do it silently without disrupting me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend OneDrive to all the business users as this is the most efficient cloud that is available out there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Laptops with not so big hard drives, and it is essential for us to have all our documents on the cloud. and that's where OneDrive steps out.

"Easy way to access Files"

What do you like best?

15GB of free storage space as well as the chance to earn extra free storage space, if we link with OneDrive to our mobile phone’s camera so that it automatically backs up their photos online, Easy organization access any of your Windows PCs or mobile devices

What do you dislike?

If i don't have an internet connection, I have no access to My data.

Recommendations to others considering the product

it is very useful and don’t have to log in from a particular system/ laptop or device to get access to your files. You also don’t need to be physically in the office or logged into your work network

"It makes your life easier"

What do you like best?

It's very convenient, everything is instantly synchronized, both locally and on the web

What do you dislike?

If you have a.pst and you're using it with outlook sometimes the timing gets a little crazy

Recommendations to others considering the product

In Windows 10 it is really easy to use, synchronizes very well and is easy to use by the user.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When a PC breaks down, is lost or simply needs to be renewed, data can be easily recovered.

It's just a matter of having a new computer with Internet access to retrieve that data.

No longer is it necessary to copy data to an external device with the problem that sometimes existed due to the size of the folders or even the name of the folders.

This work could take hours now the user can continue working on his new pc while his data is downloaded in the background.

Besides that the files can also be stored locally on the computer in addition to the web.

"Onedrive Onedrive in the university field. "

What do you like best?

The ease of use. The load capacity. The great possibility of configurations that it has. The speed of loading and unloading. The large storage capacity. The price is not bad. It's the fastest I've tried. The synchronization is very good. The amount of basic storage is very similar to all others. Has offers from time to time. The compatibility with the rest of Microsoft's products is total. If you are on Windows only Google drive is up to the task. It also works well in mac environments. Although for this I recommend icloud. The integration with Microsoft products is unbeatable and it is necessary to work with them in a much more comfortable way.

What do you dislike?

As all storage plans could be cheaper and also faster in loading. Although synchronization between devices is good it could be faster. Sometimes you may encounter connection problems. The availability of files sometimes fails. In the same virtues you can find the problems. Sometimes it fails in the connection and can leave you offline in critical moments. If you have a good connection, the browsing experience is improved. As always, the problem of the cloud is caused by the number of files. There are not so many problems because of the size of each file as the number of them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good plan although there are cheaper ones.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The organization of various materials for the university. Use to upload jobs and assignments that students can share.

"Overall Satisfaction with OneDrive"

What do you like best?

Version control. Sync works very well - OneDrive consumer and next gen business client for OneDrive for Business. Online display of file details, size etc.

What do you dislike?

Would like to be able to save from Outlook - to a "shared with me" - currently this is only available online. Better differentiation of consumer vs. OneDrive for Business. Need to be able to sync "shared with me" files - on the business side.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The resources are slim for deployment. Very little monitoring ability. Once implemented and a scripted monitoring process has been implemented it is a great solution. Ideal for small businesses.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At our company we use a mix of OneDrive (consumer) and OneDrive for Business. OneDrive for Business is used purely for company use. Syncing has always been an issue until Windows 10 came out. Since Windows 10 - OneDrive for Business has been working well. On the personal side of things - we use OneDrive (consumer) since it's native to Windows 10, it works great. Everyone has their own MS account in which they link this account to.

"More Than Just File Sharing"

What do you like best?

OneDrive is designed for collaboration, and everything it does has collaboration in mind.

What do you dislike?

The online editors for PowerPoint and Excel need a lot of work to make them even useful. It's painful to try to get formatting a specific way, or to get formatting in the online version to match the offline version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you would like to add full-featured collaboration features to reliable file storage, OneDrive is surprisingly good. Give it a shot.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We switched from Dropbox to OneDrive, and I wasn't happy at first. Dropbox seemed more intuitive for file sharing. It didn't take long for me to realize how much more OneDrive can do. We utilize it for Groups (to make file sharing and associated messages a breeze), online collaboration on the fly (it blows Dropbox out of the water in this area), and for its integration with the rest of the Microsoft Office suite.

"My favorite storage space, where I keep my Office documents"

What do you like best?

I love that it is integrated with Microsoft Office because it allows me to keep onedrive, the archives that I am making on my personal computer, and once made, share it with my students, so that they can download the study guides, so necessary for your training

What do you dislike?

What I like the least is that sometimes it takes to synchronize the files that I make with my tablet, because when I make a document on my personal computer, it is necessary that it is also on my tablet, since it is the mobile device on which I transfer to the office where I do not have Internet connection, and I must make sure that the file has been synchronized before in the house, because otherwise the file is not recorded automatically which has lost me time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

is highly recommended since onedrive for business belongs to a whole ecosystem of microsoft programs that allows you to use it from different applications, so that it is possible to store and share the files independently of the office application that you are using, which being integrated in each application allows onedrive to be of enough benefits for all those who use them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In reality it has allowed me to be more dynamic when it comes to making a document, since I make them on a personal desktop computer at home, sometimes I share them with my colleagues and students, and other times I have to record it on the tablet, but thanks to onedrive record it to the tablet has been done automatically due to the sincrinizacion of data.

"Una muy buena herramienta para el almacenamiento de información de cualquier tipo en la nube. "

What do you like best?

Me encanta esta aplicación. Es una aplicación fácil de utilizar e intuitiva. Ofrece una bonita interfaz fácil de comprender por los usuarios. Ideal para mantener copias de tus trabajos en la nube y organizarlos del modo que desees. Permite almacenar fotografías, videos y todo tipo de archivos y documentos. Es fácil compartir la información y establece certeras políticas de seguridad para ello. A modo persona, puedes ampliar la capacidad de almacenamiento sin costo alguno, con una simple invitación. Sin embargo, el uso empresarial amerita una inversión que es subsanada con las potencialidades que ofrece el producto. No requiere entrenamiento para ser usado, por lo que cualquier empleado novato o avanzado se adapta rápidamente a su empleo y en consecuencia puede obtener el máximo provecho de la aplicación.

What do you dislike?

Como todo soporte de almacenamiento en la nube es limitado, si deseas mayor espacio debes calificar o pagarlo, además, si no tienes buena conexión, su uso puede resultar frustrante. Un poco limitado en la edición y actualización online de los documentos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No dudo en recomendar esta aplicación de Microsoft. Es útil tanto para uso personal como en los negocios. Es versatil para el montaje, edición y compartir información en la nube.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Es una aplicación que puede ser empleada por cualquier tipo de usuario para cualquier tipo de negocio. En mi caso particular, yo trabajo en el sector educativo; en consecuencia, me sirve para subir material de estudio y compartirlo con mi grupo de alumnos. Además, me permite descargar lo que ellos suban para su revisión. Lo cual hace factible acercarnos aunque estemos distantes. Y también nos permite trabajar en diferentes horarios.

What do you like best?

I love that you can easily share documents across platforms and have colleagues looke at documents seamlessly. I have used this product in the past and can attest to its ease of use. I can upload anything the the website regardless of the file size and it is able to upload it. I can then access the file anywhere and it easily can be accessed.

What do you dislike?

It sometimes doesn’t function completely and can lag at times but overall it is a great product. As I stated before I have had little issues with this product as it has worked for me without fail to date. I have been a dedicated usemail Of this product for about three years to date and I can attest to the fact that it works so well. There have never been any problems with this product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to share documents very easily across the office. We are also able to share larger video files that are difficult to send across email platforms and it works every time.

"the only Cloud that I use on my win 10."

What do you like best?

I use Microsoft's OneDrive for Business for my work files, as it is the only safe cloud when it comes to confidential documents that I have stored up there. I also love that i can synchronize SharePoint via OneDrive, and upload documents to SharePoint via OneDrive, that makes your desktop environment so useful that you dont ever need to open browser and upload something to the cloud.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the new option of synchronization with SP pages, before you could just paste link of SP that you want to synchronize and add it to your library now you need to open that very same link and click on sync button in browser, which sometimes isn't working as intended.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Microsoft's OneDrive to anyone that wants to be responsible to Confidential documents they work with on their company's assets

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I store all my Confidential restricted Documents on the cloud, as well as all the documents that i want to quickly share with my colleagues

"OneDrive features like drag and drop create an easy user experience"

What do you like best?

It's easy to organize files in OneDrive, with drag and drop capabilities for individual files as well as entire folders. Also nifty are it's mobile applications for the iPad. This makes it easier to access and work on files across different devices, or on the go.You can also share certain files and folders with others, which can be great for working on a joint project. Additionally, right click menu functions make renaming and sharing files/folder a breeze. Finally, the tile view can be useful to see thumbnails of files in your folder.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if this had a more functionality similar to SharePoint, in which users could create their own meta data columns to sort their files. Instead, OneDrive stays closer to the traditional Windows Explorer format of using folders and sub-folders to organize documents.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use this as a virtual drive for your files and a place to collaborate on smaller projects. Utilize tile mode if looking through pictures.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use OneDrive to collaborate on small projects and use the sharing features to house joint location for uploading event photos or things of that nature. The benefit is seen especially in the iPad app where one can seamlessly transition from working on a desktop to working on the go.

"A very positive application but restricted due to its operation"

What do you like best?

It has everything that I can want. I can store any media. It is secure. I can access it wherever I want.

It integrates with online or installed office software. I can share it with anyone with the link.

The link can be shortened using url shortener.

So, basically feature wise, I just adore this application. Also, the recovery is best. Even if I was in the middle of a file and the webpage crashes, it brings back as much as it really can.

What do you dislike?

The speed at which it works. It takes its own time to load the file.

The user friendliness is restricted. It is not open for everyone to enjoy their experience.

Why would the onedrive take nearly 2 mins to load some files?

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a Microsoft product for your needs, then this one works wonders.

But I am not sure if you will be fine with the constant "loading..." message.

Personally, I will try to find a better product than this if I get a chance.

But if you look at security in the mix, you have the best product right here.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sharing data across teams.

Secure file storage.

Making changes to the files at the same time.

"Store all of my docs"

What do you like best?

It is very user-friendly, simple drag and drop, copy and paste, rename and delete. Just as simple as your own hard drive on your computer. Basically accessible anywhere, at home, at work, in the coffee shop, etc. I use it to download files and make edit (although you can edit documents online as well). For personal use, it makes life easier whenever you cannot attach your large files or folders into an email. It also let you customize your audience, like which ones are included and which ones are not. I used it to collect assignment from students and customize audience so that they cannot see others' grades. Depending on your business intention, there might be other features you want to explore

What do you dislike?

Again, same as sharepoint, my workplace has power outage before and the documents I worked on could not get uploaded. However, it is fairly safe, you can save it on your computer and upload it at a different time whenever internet is back on.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think many people use Onedrive, not only for business but also for their personal use. Students and teachers use it a lot too. For business, probably the additional cost for further features would bother them from going forward I guess.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to store files and share with others, havent really accomplished anything fancy, but for big folders that emails cant handle, this is the best solution. You can also organize folders there to limit/expand your audience

What do you like best?

What I like the most is that it automatically backs up the photos in the Android application and if you configure it, it does not wait for your authorization to upload the files, it offers you the possibility to save everything you want and create folders to protect it. your files Ideally, avoid filling your local disk by choosing which folders or documents will be synchronized with a specific device.

The only thing I do not like because it is very discouraging is that they charge very high for increasing the capacity in the cloud.

"Useful, quick, easy to use"

What do you like best?

It's a safe place to store my files that's secure, but also allows sharing within the business. I also like the ability to easily sync files as I work on them, which makes collaboration a snap. The direct integration to the Office 365 suite makes it a lot easier for me to work on files at home, as well, since I can simply sign into my 365 account in Office at home, and have the same security policies applied to my work on my home computer as on my work one.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that the API is different from the standard Microsoft Account OneDrive, causing a lot of issues with some third-party software that wasn't specifically written for OneDrive for Business. The error resolution also needs some work, as filename and path lengths cause frequent confusion in problems, since they can be created on the application, but then don't sync properly to a computer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Works best with the Office Suite and Microsoft Windows. While this does work on Mac OS, the compatibility isn't nearly as strong as with Windows.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're making it easy for our employees to backup the files they need to keep track of, empowering them to protect files rather than relying on unreliable backup utilities that often miss critical files because of an engine that cannot analyze need.

"Super easy to use"

What do you like best?

I love that this software can be paired up with Microsoft Excel, powerpoint, etc. I like that as with most file-sharing software today, you can sync your files across any device. The userface is super clean and very easy to learn.

What do you dislike?

You have to link it with Microsoft Sharepoint to collaborate. The software desperately needs more integration availability. I also do not love that even with the business software, the company makes you pay PER user. Another con is that you can only access offline content on a desktop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its so similar to other file-sharing platforms, but can be used with other Microsoft software, so thats a plus!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I mostly used the software in collaboration with other Microsoft programs that I use frequently. One huge benefit is the space offered- 1 terabyte!

"Fantastic for small SSD's"

What do you like best?

The ease of use. Everything is in its place, It integrates quite seamlessly into the document folder windows, not being an obtrusive separate app that constantly requires authentication. Microsoft has done a fantastic job with this. On Demand, Downloads has been outstanding! I run a small SSD on my laptop and can browse and locate the files I require and only download the file or assets I need for the job at hand. No need to keep a lot of files that I don't really use regularly.

What do you dislike?

Well, sometimes the files won't show previews when I think they should. This makes it hard to view designs or image files that you may have many revisions of. It seems to take a long time to fully load all the file types, specifically image previews. The sharing features are wonderful, but I do find it confusing when you have over 100 folders and you have specific folders shared, and not others. It would be better to be able to group your folders so you know instantly which ones are share and which are not.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I strongly encourage it. Once you get around and understand the sharing and other features it really integrates nicely.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

FIle management on tiny (but fast) SSD's. Modern laptops have small hard drives, unless you want some slow HDD or can afford the large M.2 drives. With OneDrive for Business, I am able to carry the files I need and access any others I "may" need while on the go.

What do you like best?

Among the best features of Onedrive we have to adapt the quality of each video to the user's connection. It is, for example, what they also do services like Youtube, and what allows to see those videos with less cuts and stoppages and consuming the really necessary data for each moment. Plus OneDrive has managed to automatically upload your photos on all your devices from the moment you take them. Do not wait to give permission, or remember every day to do it, but only activate the OneDrive function and let him take care of everything.

What do you dislike?

Microsoft dramatically reduced the limit of 15 to 5 GB free, and from that figure you have to pay. In addition, the platform suppressed other benefits that until now offered for free, and it will not be possible either to contract plans of 100 or 200 GB of storage

Recommendations to others considering the product

Should return to provide free storage of 15 GB is the only request I have.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

OneDrive achieves what for a long time was difficult to achieve: have all your PCs synchronized. And no, I do not just talk about what you see (the documents), but also get all the settings, the little details that make any PC "yours" In Windows 10, the home screen, applications installed, the data of those applications and all the favorites that you have stored in Internet Explorer will always be the same on all your Windows devices

"It's cloud storage."

What do you like best?

I like that it connects with Microsoft's other online tools, including my email and Microsoft's online office apps. I like that it is connected to my work email, which means that I don't have to remember yet another username and password.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that it's not as widely supported by apps as Dropbox. It's easy to share files from the browser version of OneDrive, but it's slightly complicated to share folders from the desktop app. The mobile app was not terrifically user-friendly when I started using it some years ago. I haven't used the mobile app since then, so it may have changed drastically.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As an individual, I prefer DropBox, but OneDrive gets the job done.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My university supplies 1TB of online storage via Microsoft OneDrive for all faculty and students. Our LMS (Canvas) supports uploads directly from OneDrive, so it makes it easier for students to complete and submit assignments all online even from tablets/phones without requiring device storage.

"OneDrive is the only way I can get my printer to work! "

What do you like best?

OneDrive is my savior; the scanner function on my printer will not hook up with my PC any other way. Contracts, old documents, and more are a cinch because I can easily scan them to OneDrive. Then I can retrieve them and OneDrive stores them indefinitely. I appreciate OneDrive!

What do you dislike?

I dislike the length of time it takes for the scanner to work with OneDrive; it takes quite a while for the scans to upload, but it's worth it!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely recommend OneDrive! I believe it comes with the Microsoft Office package, so make sure you have a microsoft login and go to town!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can easily upload contracts, documents, and more. I can rename them within OneDrive so when I transfer them they are easily identifiable. Everyone on your team can also edit documents and see them easily, which is great for collaboration and file-sharing! I personally do not collaborate with my team with my documents, but I transfer them to the file share where others can see them. Everyone who has OneDrive could access my files if I wished, which is really useful for team environments and departments!
