Microsoft OneDrive

Xi Frame integrates with multiple cloud storage providers, including Microsoft OneDrive. OneDrive is an online storage space service in the cloud that is provided to individual licensed users in a Microsoft organization. It is typically used to access files across multiple devices, share files, and collaborate on documents. Xi Frame administrators need simply to authorize their OneDrive for Business account from their Xi Frame account Dashboard to give their end users access from their own sessions.

Enable OneDrive

Administrators can easily enable the Xi Frame OneDrive integration from their account Dashboard.

  1. Start by navigating to the “Settings” page of your Dashboard. From there, select the “Session” tab at the top of the page.

As with any cloud storage integration, your users will see the OneDrive integration appear as an additional drive in their file explorer.

Note

OneDrive with Frame is only accessible as an additional drive letter. The data on your drive cannot be accessed by using the OneDrive link in the sidebar of Windows File Explorer.
