Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
OneDrive is the one place for everything in your life. It gives you free online storage for all your personal files, so you can access them from your Mac and any other devices you use – iPhone, iPad, PC, Windows Phone or Android. With OneDrive for Business, you also get storage for your work files so you can share and collaborate on them with other people at your work or school/university. The OneDrive app for Mac makes it easy to work with your OneDrive files on your Mac:
•Access your OneDrive files directly from the Finder, including attachments that you’ve saved to OneDrive from Outlook.com, and documents and spreadsheets that you’ve created from Office Online.
•Work with your OneDrive files even when you’re offline. Your changes will sync automatically the next time you’re online.
•Choose the folders in your OneDrive that you want to sync on your Mac.
•Add several files or folders to OneDrive at a time by dragging them to the OneDrive folder. By putting your files in OneDrive, you can access them from anywhere and have a backup in case something happens to your computer.
•Easily open, edit and create docs and other files in OneDrive from applications such as Word or Excel.
What's New in Version 17.3.6919.0626
• We've added context menus for OneDrive! Just right-click on your file or folder to see the new options. To turn on the context menu, enable OneDrive Finder Extensions and restart macOS or Finder after the update.
• Speaking of another feature you've all been asking for, you can now share a file or folder from the context menu. It works for both personal and work or education accounts!
• The activity center has been updated to provide more detailed information, such as where the file was downloaded from or uploaded to.
• We've also increased the maximum file path limit for your work or education OneDrive.
• We've made more improvements to sync reliability – hooray!
• Fixed the macOS 10.9 issue that was causing OneDrive to crash.
We're aware of some users on macOS 10.13 having issues - and are working on a fix for the next update.
Personal App Works Great - Business App Will not Sync
The OneDrive personal app works flawlessly and is a big help to me. Because if its reliability, I use it for much of my work content as well. This brings me to the OneDrive for business app - earlier versions would crash or fail to start at all. Those bugs seem to have been worked-out, and now the app will start-up reliably, but seems to be forever in ‘spin cycle’ - saying that it is syncing, however no files are actually ever downloaded. I have about 130GB of data in the cloud, but only about 25GB will ever sync. If there is some ‘trick’ to starting it over and getting everything to work, I am definitely interested. I have also noticed some issues with file naming conventions on the Mac version (no #, etc.) which don’t seem to affect the Windows version, but I am willing to work around those. All-in-all, OneDrive is still a very valuable service to me - I just hope the remaining bugs can be worked-out on the Mac version...
Seems to have Microsoft’s attention
I started testing OneDrive for the Mac last year when looking at Office365 for my company. It was very bad, would not sync reliably, would crash and not restart, would not open at startup, etc. It was bad! But I’ve seen quite a few releases from Microsoft and it really seems to have their attention on the development side. Because of the improvements I think this is a safe choice for file syncing at this point.
I still don’t have finder integration and I’ve looked in the Office365 help docs a few times but can’t seem to find the setup. I now see from the screenshots how to set it up. It really needs to have sharing options directly from the finder.
It’s still strange to me that they ship this through the app store and not as part of the Office365 download, that makes it somewhat difficult to get new company users set up. At least they should have it available both ways. I’d much rather have my users download the package of apps, enter their credentials and be ready to go.
Overall, OneDrive is usable with this release and I’d recommend. Don’t even think about Skype for Business on the Mac, it’s still completely unusable and really shouldn’t be called Skype.
Horrible - and I Love OneDrive on my PC and iOS devices
On the mac it is a train wreck. I have both OneDrive and OneDrive for Business syncing and randomly, they don’t start when I log in even though configured to do so, and worse, one or both will just lock up, forcing me to kill it from the Activity Monitor and then manually restart. Of course, when locked up, my data isn’t getting sync’d so if I go to another device, I don’t have the latest copy because it is locked up on my Mac which won’t sync.
Really strange since the PC version works really well, and I’ve never had an issue with the iOS version either, but the macOS version is enough to make me question where to store my personal files. I’d rather pay a 3rd party service that works (dropbox) than continue with this even though it comes with my Office 365 subscription.
EDIT: Tried 3 times to respond to the developer request for support ticket but that URL does nothing but open my OneDrive. I never get an email and I did check my spam folder.
EDIT2: Got the link. bug submission sent. thanks!
