The OneDrive Link option in the workspace is part of Bluescape’s identity federation feature that enables you to link (or unlink) your Office 365 account through your Bluescape account.
|Enabling OneDrive Link for an organization is only available to our Enterprise customers. If you wish to enable this feature for your organization, please Reply to this topic.|
After the two accounts are linked, you can access, edit, and refresh Office 365 documents directly on Bluescape’s Web and Wall clients without logging in separately to OneDrive. All security privileges associated with the documents are maintained when linking the identity federation feature. This link also gives you access to the Office 365 feature, which allows you to view edits made by other members in real-time.
A OneDrive Link differs from uploading an asset from other cloud storage services. Most add a copy of the document to the workspace that does not provide a 2-way integration.
If you do not see this feature, please reach out to your IT department and request they enable it for your organization.
When someone changes the document in Office 365, you can refresh the file in the workspace and view their changes. If you edit the document when another member makes changes, you see their changes in real-time without having to refresh.
The documents that can be linked through identity federation are:
- Images (.jpeg/.jpg, .png, .gif, .tiff/.tif)
- Audio (.mp3, .wav)
- Videos (.mov, .mp4, .wmv)
- Documents (.ppt/.pptx, .doc/.docx, .xls/.xlsx, .pdf)
Certain file types may not display a thumbnail icon in the workspace. However, you can still add and interact with the file in the workspace.
Box, Dropbox, and Google Drive
Box, Dropbox, and Google Drive all upload a copy of the document from your cloud storage to Bluescape. Currently, OneDrive is the only cloud storage service that can directly upload linked documents to Bluescape.
Note about Google Drive
Google Drive allows for online editing; however, previewing may not work on the most recent version, and identity federation is not used for uploads.
