Sharing Folders with OneDrive
This document will explain how to share folders from your Trent University OneDrive for Business account on the web.
If you’d like to edit the same document at the same time (and see each others actions in real time) make sure to open the document from the web, then edit in the web as well.
Note: folder sharing only works internally to Trent, or with those that have Microsoft accounts, as accessing the folder requires logging in.
From browser, key in the URL www.trentu.ca/owa
Use your myTrent credentials (username and password) to sign in.
Click on the Apps icon and Select One Drive from the Apps tiles .
Navigate to the folder you would like to share with your colleague(s).
Click the three little dots next to the folder, then click the ‘SHARE’ button as shown in the image below :
This will provide a dialog box to invite colleagues and provide permission levels along with a personal message.
- Type the name(s) of the people you would like to share with. It should auto-find people just by typing their name.
- Set the permissions you want to give them
- Leave them a message if you like
- Click ‘Share’.
This will send an email to those you shared with, and will give them a link to the folder for quick access.
You can now collaborate together within this folder.
