Share files with OneDrive for Business

Files in OneDrive for Business are private unless you personally make them available to other users. You can do this easily by making a link.

Publishing and sending a link to external users

  1. Click the Lock icon to the right of the file you want to share, and select Get a link.
  2. Define the access to the file in the pop-up: select Edit or View Only in the drop-down menu on the top right.
  3. Copy the link and send it to the recipient.

When the recipient clicks the link, the file will open on his/her computer, tablet or smartphone.

You can track the changes made by other users in the columns Modified and Modified by. To see older versions of a modified file, right-click on the file and select History in the drop-down menu.

Disable a link

  1. Click the Shared icon next to the file or folder.
  2. Select a Create link in the left menu.
  3. Click Disable.
