OneDrive for Business or Next Generation Sync Client: Synchronization


Now we are in a transition phase. These days we have three different clients for synchronization. And we also have to look for the operating system of the clients, sometimes we have one, sometimes two different sync-clients. And more often the users do not know, where they have to start the sync process.

This description is only for Office 365!

Client OS?, Yes that’s very important, And I have published a blog post here and here.

 

So here the description, if you have Windows 7, Windows 8.0, Windows 10 or MAC OS:

Synchronization with the Microsoft Cloud

the arrows show, where you have to initiate the sync process.

 

SharePoint Team Sites and Groups OneDrive for Business and OneDrive
You should start the sync, after you have navigate with your browser to the document library, which you want to sync.
Click on the sync button

(From the Cloud –> to your device)

Here you click the right mouse button on the cloud symbol in the infobar and choose settings.

The click on “add a business account”

(From device to the Cloud)

Synchronization with SharePoint Team Sites and Groups Add a business Account

 

You have installed  Windows 8.1

You have to wait till end of march 2016, until the NGSC is available for this operating system

Windows 8.1, Synchronization with the Microsoft Cloud

the arrows show, where you initiate the sync process.

 

SharePoint Team Sites, Groups and
OneDrive for Business
OneDrive (Personal)
You should start the sync, after you have navigate with your browser to the document library, which you want to sync.
Click on the sync button

(From the Cloud –> to your device)

Here you click the right mouse button on the cloud symbol in the infobar and choose settings.

The click on “add an account”

(From device to the Cloud)

Windows 8.1, Synchronization with SharePoint Team Sites, Groups and OneDrive for Business  

 

Conclusion:

You see, that starting to sync to the cloud from the device is the best solution. That will work very well, because

for the user there is only one OneDrive personal account, you may synchronize with.
the same functionality will work for the Office 365 user. Normally you will have only one OneDrive for Business.

If you are, for example, an IT consultant, you will have the ability, to add another OneDrive for Business account from a different tenant.

But we see, there is also a long way for Microsoft, to establish access to SharePoint Team Sites and Groups. And it’s not so easy, to establish a way, to navigate from your client to the right position , where your document library exist on your tenant. But let us surprise.

    Just installed Office 365 ProPlus (Office 2016 early Access). Then wanted to install the NGSC.I got a error message, that there is a newer version already installed.
    Did they include the NGSC already into Office 2016? What about Win8.1 support? hm…. have to try that.

    Unbelievable to see all this delay. We are in 2016 and the NGSC can’t natively sync Onedrive tenant AND Sharepoint sites !!!

    Hi I want to try out the ODFB Next Gen really to sync with my local folder on my win 10 / Office 2016 dev machine. I tried to locate the the preview but could only find Setup.x64.en-us_GrooveRetail_3V9N8-W93CC-FQPB8-Y9WVF-TVGJ3_TX_PR_ which is the older interim ODFB client. Is the ODFB Next Gen OneDrive.exe available anywhere. I picked up the comment above for adding extra ODFB accounts from other tenants – that is going to be useful.
