Our post form's OneDrive integration allows you to seamlessly share information from OneDrive on Employee Community. Here's how...

How to share a OneDrive file on Employee Community. 

  1. Open up a new post by clicking the orange new post button at the bottom, right-hand corner of your screen.

  2. Click the paperclip icon in the editing toolbar at the top of the page. 

  3. Select OneDrive from the dropdown menu. 

  4. If you're already signed into OneDrive, this will open up a file picker window. If you're not signed in to OneDrive, authenticate with your credentials to see the file picker. 

  5. Choose the file(s) that you'd like to share on Employee Community, then click the Choose button. You'll see that these files will appear in your post. 

  6. Then, add/edit your post title and post body to your liking. 

  7. When you're ready to publish, click Continue at the top right corner of the page, select your groups, and click the blue publish button. 

You can, of course, also add a OneDrive file to an existing post by editing a post and following steps 2-7. 

Details about OneDrive files on Employee Community. 

  • We love sharing files from OneDrive because if the file is edited, the link is permanent. No worries about returning to your post to update the file — we'll always point to the latest version of the document behind the link. Hooray!

  • You may notice that your file from OneDrive doesn't embed as a file upload or a Google Drive document does. This is because OneDrive doesn't allow us full access to your content, but instead only provides us with the sharing link.
