We have migrated to Office 365 and are now looking to roll out OneDrive for Business to our users so they can better access files whilst on the move from their mobile devices. We also redirect our users My Documents, Desktop and Favorites to a user profile share on our file servers.
We have come across a number of tutorials, both Microsoft and third party, that cover folder redirection to a users OneDrive. We think this could be quite useful for users as they won't have to worry in which directory they save files if they later want to view them in OneDrive.
The question is, is this recommended and has anyone done it and experienced any side effects? Also, are MS Office apps smart enough to realise that say My Docs is actually on OneDrive to then allowyou to share it straight toother users, or does it still expectyou to resave it to OneDrive directly to do so?
Many thanks in advance!
We are looking at using the next-gen client and already have it installed on a few machines so people have ready access to OneDrive, particularly for non MS Office files.
