Share files in OneDrive

For recommendations for the safe and appropriate use of your College OneDrive for Business account, please see the Office 365 usage recommendations webpage.

NOTE: If you want to save and share a PowerPoint presentation to OneDrive so other users can edit it, save the presentation using the .pptx file extension. (The .odp file extension does not allow multiple users to edit a presentation at the same time and the other users will have read‑only access.)
