OneDrive is UMB’s new, secure, and universally accessible storage location for all your work files. It is HIPAA and FERPA compliant and University approved.
However, OneDrive offers a lot more than just file storage. It’s an integral part of Office 365, and by using OneDrive, it also allows you to:
- Access your files securely from anywhere.
- Share files with others.
- Work on Office documents with others at the same time.
In a word: Flexibility!
Once your files are in OneDrive, you can access them from any computer or mobile device that has internet access. If you’re at a meeting across campus, at home, traveling for work — whatever the scenario — you can get access to your files by using the Office 365 portal or mobile app.
Again, OneDrive is HIPAA and FERPA compliant, so you can be assured that your files are safe and secure no matter where you’re accessing them from.
If you need a colleague to review a file, you can let them view and update the file in your OneDrive by using the “Share” feature — meaning their changes will automatically appear in the file. There’s no need to email a file back and forth.
You also can be in the file at the same time as your colleague, and both can make real-time updates.
By using OneDrive to securely store your files, you gain great flexibility and accessibility. To help you, the Enterprise Training Group provides training opportunities and resources. Please visit the Center for Information Technology Services’ Office 365 website for information.
