Homeworking – collaborate with OneDrive

If you are homeworking you can collaborate with OneDrive. Microsoft’s OneDrive can be used to:

  • Access and edit your files from all your devices.
  • Share inside or outside your organization.
  • Work together in real-time on Office documents.
  • Quickly find the files that matter to you.
  • Keep your files protected and backed up.

Saving your files to the cloud lets you access them from anywhere and makes it easy to share them with family and friends. If you have to work from home  you can easily collaborate with OneDrive on projects with your co-workers.  To save documents online with OneDrive, sign in to Microsoft Office.
Your files are saved online at OneDrive.com and also to your OneDrive folder on your computer. Storing files in your OneDrive folder allows you to work offline, in addition to online, and your changes are synchronized when you reconnect to the Internet.
