No Email Notifications for Shared File Edits in Onedrive

Using Onedrive email alerts for shared documents are turned on by default.

Shared doc with colleague.

Watched him open and edit it in Office365.

Got no email update.

What do you think is happening?

Does he save back the file in OneDrive which means overwrite of the shared file?

Hi Jackie,

Yes.  He did.  In fact, seems to auto-save.

We even did it twice.

I even added him in my live.com email Contacts as well.

What do you think is happening?

Thanks!

Can you duplicate this with other users?

Gotta ask, did you check your spam folders?

Yes.  Same issue.

Yes.  Not there.

Thanks,

Is this OneDrive for business or personal?
Dont recall if there is a setting for that.  We can do either.  

Also, to make the possibility that it would engage for us we even had the Onedrive account owner sign up for Office 365.

Hi Scott,

All your links lead me to what was the issue: you need Office365 BUSINESS and...you need to put the files into Sharepoint.  They offer sharepoint free as part of the package.

Thanks for everything! :)))))))))))))))))
