We are using the school version of office 365 and having trouble with shared documents. We create a document in 365 or drag and drop and share it by inviting people but the document does not show up in the shared with me tab of skydrive for almost all of the people it is shared with. They can find it by searching the name of the sender and have access but it would be much easier and more useful to have the documents show in the shared with me tab. Please help, we would love to be able to use this more but cannot until it works for everyone.

I see lot of people complaining about this on the community forums, and no solutions mentioned. The only useful piece of information I found is this:

If fixing the indexing part doesnt sort the issue for you, open a SR with Microsoft.

Are the documents which aren't showing up shared to individual users?  Or "Shared with Everyone"?

By default, any document that is shared with "everyone" will not show up in the "shared with me" folder.  This is by design.
