OneDrive is used in our organization as the primary online document management and cloud storage platform. It is used widely within all areas of business in integration product and project work streams, connecting an online experience for document review and revision, a storage management system for materials like online media and artifacts and marketing document repository to name a few. The platform cuts down on paper copies around the enterprise and offers a secure platform for users to easily learn and use.

OneDrive is our preferred individual cloud storage platform. Students use it for class projects and collaboration, Faculty and staff use it for backup and syncing files across multiple devices. It's great that we have it as part of our O365 subscription, so it is easily available and supportable for all users.

Microsoft OneDrive is hands down the worst piece of software I have ever used in my life. Unbelievably terrible and inconsistent UI of the control panel, constant issues with files syncing or not syncing when they should or should not, you never knowing if OneDrive is doing something in the background or not, the laughable "Personal Vault" with no secondary security option, the jokes never end. Why is the UI of the control panel and the window to Choose Folders sync completely different, as in 1995 v 2010 different? Why is it NOT POSSIBLE to resize the Choose Folders window so you are not forced to browse your file tree in a stupidly tiny window? Why does clicking a folder in your file tree in the Choose Folders window freeze OneDrive for dozens of seconds each time? Why does clicking OK in the Choose Folder NOT save your options you are forced to do this several times to add one tiny folder? Why does OneDrive sync random half of files in a fully selected folder and say All files are synced? Why doesn't OneDrive ACTUALLY save the files on your disk when you select the "Make these files ALWAYS available on this PC"? I pity the day I decided to go for OneDrive and I will be moving away from it soon.

We utilize Onedrive, which is part of the Microsoft 365 package, to fully back all of the personal data upon every user's computer and to share papers with customers online in a way that allows many people to work on a word or excel project at the same time. Providing each customer with a complimentary terabyte of storage is a great method to ensure that everyone else's personal data have always been safeguarded in the clouds.

I use it for both personal and professional needs. In the professional area I use it mostly for communication and collaborative work. It allows to work in a same project without the need of being in the same location, while accessing different resources no matter the type of file: spreadsheets, word documents, or slide presentations. The different synchronization tools allows to always have access to files and keep them updated, without worrying about losing unsaved work or being unable to access files.

OneDrive is used by my entire organization and has been for at least four years. It was an additional Microsoft product that came with an organization-wide email upgrade and was subsequently made available to everyone. My department uses it regularly as we frequently work remotely while traveling on business, so it provides access to necessary documents/files.

My organization uses OneDrive as a cloud sharing service, and it's a fresh new tool. Documents are shared for collaboration, work flows are shared for input, and HR tracking is shared. It's being utilized throughout the organization, and it's steadily gaining traction from different departments. Having a central location to store files that are only available to individuals you invite is beneficial.

I use onedrive extensively to store and share files across team of 50+ engineers. I have been long term user of onedrive and found it to be very reliable with no down time in so far experience. In the team I encourage the members to keep all the work on onedrive all time and share with relevant members so that they can pickup and use without avoid any dependency on the person to be available all time and laptop dependency. Also during the last 2 years this proved to be very useful. The permission settings for file or folder level are great and quick preview all are useful. The app support both on mobile and desktop either mac/windows is great. And special mention for the new feature which got added recently to only show file names and download only on demand is great.

It [OneDrive] enables teams with time constraints to work on a joint file when more than one person needs to work on a single file at the same time. In fact, since the deadlines are very sharp, the management can also control the file while it is still working. It is possible to access the files from all devices at any time, any second.

I have used One Drive in all three jobs I've had recently. When I worked at the Basilica of Saint John, we used One Drive for our shared documents folder. He helped everyone add data to our offering excel sheet. Very convenient for collaborative work. I know use it at ERI to back up some Word Files.

OneDrive was used as a cloud sharing device where we could save and share documentation, materials, files, etc. for other internal teams and departments. It was a safe place for private company information and documentation that needed to be saved, shared, updated for historical or current usage across teams. As opposed to using personal drives, this was the preferred sharing and saving method for materials.

We use Onedrive as part of the Office 365 suite to backup all the personal files at each users workstation, as well as share documents online with clients, in a way where multiple people can edit a word or excel document at the same time. Getting a free terabyte of storage for each user is really handy in making sure everyones personal files are always safe in the cloud.

OneDrive provides us the mobility and flexibility we require to collaborate effectively, work on documents and other business materials, store and share work files whether at home or while in the office. OneDrive protects every single file we store inside the system and grants us total control over permissions to each user.

All departments in our company use OneDrive. We have easy access to files while working remotely as well as in the office. It's a time-saver for us! It is easy to organize, use, move, rename and delete files. MS OneDrive allows us to manage my media content more efficiently.

This is basically being used for the following aspects:
1) To securely store.
2) To access the data/files.
3) To share and collaborate with regards to the files being shared.
4) To have an easy access to the files and folders across the world and using any device (Mobile or desktop).

This is more than an amazing tool. I like its cloud storage capacity for business. I like its quick accessibility that lets us access files from any corner of the world. Moreover, it helps us in making alterations in office files direct from home. Furthermore, it helps us share and customize files. It serves the synchronization purpose well by syncing laptops, desktops, and several other devices.

OneDrive is being used across the whole organization. We sync most of our files (those which has no confidential content) in this platform. It keeps our files in the cloud which enables us to free up most of the spaces in our hard drives or local machines. Employees share files in this platform instead of the network drive.

We are a small starup company that uses OneDrive for backup of data and documents. OneDrive is used by all of us (2) employees. OneDrive solves easy sharing and data security for us, and frees up local storage space. We trust Microsoft as they are the basis for most of our software.

It is being used by both the whole organization and also on the department level. All users in the organization have a license for this. In addition to having the OneDrive for Business, some users also have/are using OneDrive for Individuals, which is related to the personal OneDrive service. For OneDrive for Business specifically, it is integrated with Office 365, which is the main Office software suite being used across the whole organization. It addresses the business problem of having a solid cloud backup storage solution, that integrates with Office 365, and one that can seamlessly share files both internally in an organization, and also externally. It also addresses the business problem of having a storage solution with has a high level of security built in.
