Hi there Experts,

I have an Office 365 Premium for Business and I try to understand how the OneDrive works in order to achieve the following:

Assuming that I have user1, user2 and user3.
For user1 I want to create a “Shared Folder” in order to be read/edited from user2 and user3 locally and from the web.

Q1) My Windows 10 computer has the OneDrive preinstalled and with Office 365 I also have the OneDrive for Business.
Which one should I use for the above scenario?

Q2) Do I need both?

Q3) user2 and user3 will be able to access locally the Shared Folder of user1 or the Shared Folder will be visible only via Microsoft’s Online Portal?

Since I do not have a physical file Server I would like to use the OneDrive as a “Network Folder” on which all users have access and as a private/local file storage for each user.
Please describe the required steps in detail.

Thank you in advance,
Mamelas

user1 can create a “Shared Folder” in order to be read/edited from user2 and user3 from the web, but not via locally

One drive for business client are just not design for it.

Dear Jian,

I have contacted Microsoft support in order to resolve subject issue.
They confirmed that there are lot of customers which are confused with the OneDrive and OneDrive for Business thus the are building a new version of the app that is better to manage which will be released on December.
The Shared Folder feature will then work either online or locally.
Although there is a Beta of the app, it is recommended to wait for the official release which will resolve these issues.
