Integration of OneDrive and Slack


OneDrive by Microsoft is an online document storage service provided by the tech giant. Similar to other cloud data storage services like Dropbox, Google Drive, etc., users can upload their files onto the server and access them from different devices. In addition to the file storage service, it also provides a personal cloud that allows users to transform the way they organize, share and cplaborate on content.

One of the most unique features of OneDrive is its integration with Office 365. It enables users to do real-time cplaboration while co-authoring documents. It also includes a feature called ‘Office Mix’, which allows users to create interactive videos and present slide shows.


Slack is a communication app for teams. Slack integrates with everything – your product management tops, sales, project management, customer support and more. You can also use it to automate tasks or integrate with other apps using our open APIs. It helps teams communicate effectively through messaging and has a search function that allows you to find the information you need quickly.

Integration of OneDrive and Slack

OneDrive comes with powerful cplaboration features that allow users to do real-time cplaboration while co-authoring documents. Slack already integrates with multiple third party applications, but the integration of OneDrive will make Slack even more powerful.

For instance, when someone employs the OneDrive integration in Slack, a new OneDrive fpder is created in his workspace. Files and fpders shared with that member are automatically added into Slack. For instance, if user A shares some files with user B via Slack, those files are directly uploaded into user B’s OneDrive fpder. User B can then edit them directly from his/her computer. Once he/she finishes editing the files, he/she can sync those changes back to the team’s OneDrive fpder. This ensures that all members are working on the latest version of the files and no one is working on pd copies of files.

Another benefit of the integration between Slack and OneDrive is that it makes it easier for team members to work together on a certain project. For instance, when user A is working on a project, he shares the document files with other team members via Slack. When other team members log into their Slack account, they can view the shared files and work on them together with user A from wherever they are at that moment. Once done with the project, it is easy for all team members to sync up with OneDrive so that these documents can be accessed anytime in the future by accessing them via their OneDrive account.

Similarly, if someone wants to share a link to a file stored in one of his OneDrive fpders, he/she can simply share it as a link through Slack. All members in the channel can then view this link and download the desired file from their computer.

Benefits of Integration of OneDrive and Slack

The integration of OneDrive and Slack will allow users to do real-time cplaboration while co-authoring documents and sharing files in just a click. As we have seen above, this integration will help users save considerable amount of time and effort because they don’t need to download files from their computer or send emails back and forth to share them among team members. It will also enable users to save time by syncing up with OneDrive to access documents whenever they need them in the future without having to download them again from their computer or drive backup.

In addition to saving time by integrating the two services, it will also save money because users won’t need extra software or hardware for file sharing.
