Microsoft OneDrive Primary Use Case

Implementation Specialist - Application Solutions at a music company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Our primary use case is having it as our primary sharing and collaboration tool. Our company is in the entertainment industry. We have lots of different departments like finance, legal, animation, sound, editing — all of that. The actual use case really depends on the department and sometimes the user. For example, I am in our tech department. If I want to share some sort of document with my team, I just put it on OneDrive. Then, if I already shared a folder, I just drop it in that folder and everyone with access to that folder gets access to that file. That is pretty much how everyone is doing their work and sharing their stuff. They create shared folders and they give permissions to different people as to what they can access and then they put stuff in those folders. That covers our basic use cases. View full review »

Contact Center Consultant at a consultancy with 51-200 employees
My primary use for the product is keeping files off my desktop and then to use it as a backup if my hard drive cracks or something like that. I am just a one-person consulting firm. I used to have more people working for me, but they are all retired. I am still here and I am the only one left because I was so much younger than everybody else. To Microsoft, I am just a customer and my grandchildren buy their video games. View full review »

OneDrive is just part of the package that is deployed with Office 365. I have been using it personally. It is not exactly the type of solution we are shooting for in the company I work for anymore, although we used to use it. I have been primarily using it for storage for personal backup. When I first started at the company in 2016, it was actually used as a central hub for the storage of documents and sharing among team members. That need kind of dissipated over time. So, I am just using it personally for backup now. View full review »
