Microsoft has announced it’s making it easier for business customers to share files via Outlook on the Web using OneDrive.
Now, rather than waiting for files to upload from a local drive, you can insert a link to a file that’s already on your OneDrive for Business account – directly from the email message.
This will be particularly useful for large files, as the documents remain in the cloud at all times, and saves you navigating away from the message to find the right link to paste in.
Additionally, now when you send an attachment from your PC or mobile device (the Outlook Web App supports OneDrive integration on iOS and Android too), you can elect to automatically upload this file to your OneDrive account, with a link to the file arriving in the recipient’s inbox instead.
Recipients in the To: and Cc: field are automatically permitted to view and edit the documents, however you can easily change these permissions before sending the message.
