OneDrive for Business is a cloud-based file hosting service provided by Microsoft that supports shared files. You can store files and access them from your computer, tablet, or phone. If you add or delete files then these changes will be synced automatically across all your devices. You can even access your files when you’re offline so you aren’t reliant on an internet connection. To keep your files secure OneDrive encrypts files with SSL.
For collaboration, OneDrive allows you to share files, photos, and folders with others. All you need to do is send a link via email or other message service and the recipient can access the files without needing to sign up. You can also set an expiration date on file links so that they can’t be accessed after a specific point in time.
Document scanning is a unique feature that allows you to use your phone to scan paper documents. For example, you scan receipts and notes to upload them to your OneDrive account.
