How do I link to OneDrive folders or files?

The question relates to adding a link within a document, to a OneDrive Document or folder. 

Link to the Online version

The easiest way is to link to the online version so that the file or folder should be viewable by those that have read or view access.

You can either use 'Sharing" or use an Online Link - the difference being the access security you might create.

The General Rule of Thumb:

  • Tags = Organization
  • User-Defined Fields = Information

Tags are a way to label people who have a specific trait or belong to a particular group. User-defined fields are custom fields on the People Screen that supplement the built-in fields. User-Defined Fields are best for recording information about people or families. Tags are best when you need to know if a person is in a particular group or has a particular trait.

Once you have added shared folder to your OneDrive, the folder and file structure will always appear on your computer, however the file or folder size may be large and you may not wish to continually chew up space on your hard drive.
