Therefore, it is convenient for users to use this feature when they want to access certain files or documents.

In addition, the integration between OneDrive and Microsoft Excel is integrated in Office 365. Users can share the data saved in their OneDrive account through their MS Office account.

For example, if you have an important document but want to show it to other people without sharing it online, you can just send an email to your friends or family members who have MS Office 365 accounts. These people will be able to access your shared files when you allow them. In addition, you can also send a link to this file to your friends through e-mail.
