How to Setup and Use Microsoft OneDrive

Syncing Microsoft OneDrive to the Optilogic Platform

Connecting your OneDrive account to the Optilogic platform enables a user to work with their pre-existing files and keep them in sync. This improves collaboration amongst teams because you have the flexibility to easily update changes to OneDrive while working with a platform you are already family with.  It also enables users to leverage permission control as part of OneDrive for any sensitive files and/or data.  Only OneDrive folders/files that the user has access to are available to sync to the Optilogic platform.

Storage Space

Anything you sync with your Optilogic Account from OneDrive uses up your Standard Optilogic storage space which can be found when you navigate to Cloud Storage. It will show your Storage Capacity and Storage Used which in this case is 150 GB and 0.1 GB respectively.
