View Shared Libraries in Microsoft OneDrive at IU

By default, your Shared Libraries (either associated with teams created in Microsoft Teams at IU, or created from within Microsoft OneDrive at IU) may not display under "Shared Libraries" on the Microsoft OneDrive at IU website.

After creating a Microsoft Teams instance (or a Shared Library from within OneDrive), to ensure it will show in the sidebar under "Shared Libraries" (or under "More libraries", if you are following more than eight Shared Libraries):

  1. If the instance was just created, wait 15 minutes.
  2. Navigate to https://office.iu.edu, log in, and click OneDrive. Look under Shared Libraries on the left to see if the Shared Library appears. If it does, you can click on it, and then click the star in the top right to follow it.
  3. If it does not appear, click More libraries, and then Go to SharePoint Home. If the Shared Library appears there, click the star beside it to follow it.
    Note:
    If you cannot see More libraries, this may mean that either you do not have access to enough Shared Libraries to see it (in which case, the Shared Library should be in the side bar), or that the list hasn't been fully populated, yet (if it is the latter, proceed to step 4).
  4. If the Shared Library does not appear, type the name of the Teams instance or Shared Library (or at least part of it) into the search bar at the top, then press Enter. Click the name of the Teams instance or Shared Library in the search results, then click the star at the top right of the page to follow it.
    Note:
    If it does not appear in the search results, the Shared Library may still be generating. If it appears and you can navigate to the site, but you cannot see the follow button, you may need to clear the cache and cookies in your browser.

Alternative options include:

  • Click the link to the Shared Library in the creation email message, and then click Follow in the top right.
  • If the Shared Library is associated with a team in Microsoft Teams at IU, open the team in Microsoft Teams, navigate to the channel associated with the Shared Library, click Files, click Open in SharePoint, and then click the star in the top right to follow it.
