best way to impliment a company shared folder in office 365 business premium
Posted on 2014-12-04
I have a customer who is moving from SBS 2003 to Office 365 business premium.
Only 4 users.
I will not be migrating - I will setting up from afresh using Office 365.
There will be no on-site server so I need to create a shared folder to place all the company files in.
In SBS2003 we called this the "Company Shared Folder" and it contained all the files that everyone in the office needed access to all the time - users had a mapped a drive letter to it.
I have Office 365 on a trial at the moment and I do not see an easy way to replicate this.
When I share folders between users they do not appear in the One Drive Pro on the client PCs.
You can see them if you log on to the MS webs apps and go to One Drive but I need to have physical folder on each computer that is updated when other users add or change files on the physical folders on their PC's.
This is so very, very basic for Small Businesses.
I cannot find any simple instructions on how to achieve this.
I know about team sites but the space is limited to 12 GB in this case (10GB + (4*500MB))
So how to get a shared folder to show up in all 4 users One Drive Pro folder on the physical PC's ?
All help appreciated
