Notice the difference yet? Well, only if you already have Office Version 2006 (Build 12827.20000) or higher installed on your computer. Because while some people complain about the slow saving to a OneDrive library, Microsoft has thought ahead elsewhere
- Create document
- Create Document
- Save and share
While three separate steps were necessary in the past, there are now two steps, because the last step was combined into one dialog. But only if…
we click the Save button or type CTRL-S on the keyboard AND
want to save the document in OneDrive for Business or OneDrive Personal.
Other storage locations such as document libraries in SharePoint Online do not (yet?) work.
Here the small picture gallery:
I can also make a change in this dialogue. For example, switch from OneDrive for Business to OneDrive (Personal). But then only in the main directory. But I cannot select a folder. If a user has shared a complete directory with folders and files (shared with me), this folder will also appear. But also here the folders are not shown and cannot be selected. If you have access to another tenant in Office 365, you are facing the same problem. Although properly included, he is not even included.
but that only works if your administrator allows certain things. If he doesn’t allow sharing with external users, the user will get an error message after saving:
Microsoft should still improve here. If I change from the default location, then the folder selection must be displayed. Why are not all OneDrive for Business folders available on the system displayed?
Of course, I can click on more storage options and end up in the same old location. But then the dialog box is gone too.
I don’t know how many client-server queries are necessary for the rights, but the tiresome topic of sharing with external users will occur more often. Not every user has contact with his IT department. And if he doesn’t know, then an error message will quickly become a boomerang, then I’ll do it in the usual way. First save and then share.
