Microsoft OneDrive at IU and SharePoint Online allow you to sync files to your desktop and grant other users access to files. Before using OneDrive and SharePoint Online, note the following:

  • The SharePoint Online sync button is enabled in sites at Indiana University. Do not enable SharePoint Online sync if you have Restricted data or higher shared within your site until you verify with your IT Pro that your desktop or laptop is secured for that data classification and has approval.
  • Never store Critical or Restricted data on individual user workstations or mobile devices (for example, laptops, smartphones, tablets, personal digital assistants, thumb drives) without prior formal written approval and appropriate technical safeguards. See Management of Institutional Data (DM-01).
  • People who receive links to files on a OneDrive account or SharePoint Online site may need to sign in with their IU Microsoft 365 credentials.
