About Microsoft OneDrive at IU and SharePoint Online file syncing and sharing

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:

  • For security reasons, the SharePoint Online sync button is hidden by default. Do not enable SharePoint Online sync unless you have verified that no Restricted data or higher will be shared on your site, and that you followed best practices in educating your users.
  • 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 policy (DM-01).
  • People who receive links to files on a OneDrive account or SharePoint Online site will need to sign in with their IU Office 365 credentials.
