Though still under development, the new feature should roll out any time soon.

The OneDrive updates

If you’ve been more reliant on Microsoft OneDrive over the past year for collaboration within your organization, then this update will simplify some of those processes.

In an update to its OneDrive cloud storage service, Microsoft has revealed new features that could change the way your team collaborates and creates content for good.

As work becomes more collaborative, you’ve probably gotten used to responding to feedback on the fly. But that can be tricky when you have a document open from your laptop and another from your mobile device. 

Instead of figuring out which version is most up-to-date, you could miss an important comment or question about a shared live document or spreadsheet.

The new Microsoft update will make it easier for you to track changes in your documents and images files. And it could save you hours of frustration trying to figure out the most recent version of your files.

New update build-up

Users will note that this update comes just after the rollout of a number of features added earlier to the cloud storage service, all of which revolve around enhanced sharing and collaborative capabilities.

The goal is to advance the usability and capabilities of OneDrive so it can compete in a continually growing and evolving market.

The new pinning system and simplified interface make it easier than ever to locate files quickly and manage your organization’s cloud storage, helping increase  productivity in the process.

Following a number of changes to its product, Microsoft hopes OneDrive will soon become the go-to cloud storage option for businesses.
