OneDrive vs SharePoint vs Teams - Where to Store Files

In Office 365, there are multiple options for storing files, like personal OneDrive, also called OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, SharePoint, and Teams. Check below for the differences between these 4 options.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kL0tq7vSMww

  1. Microsoft OneDrive: Microsoft OverDrive: If you are working in a corporate environment, this is not the ideal storage option. OneDrive is intended specifically for your home PC and your personal files. Some companies will allow the use of OneDrive in the office, and while that does not cause any harm, it is best to think about OneDrive for your personal files, such as your photos, family documents, or personal documents which you don’t want to share with others, especially in a business setting.
  2. Microsoft SharePoint: SharePoint is an enterprise tool made for securely sharing files within departments and teams, and across different departments. If you will need to share your file at any point, think SharePoint. In addition to the easy sharing capabilities, there is a sync button in SharePoint which will sync the files to your OneDrive for Business. It is always recommended to use OneDrive for Business whenever you need to synchronize SharePoint files to your local device.
  3. Microsoft OneDrive for Business: This can be used to store document such as a report you are not sharing with your team, or across multiple teams. You can store OneDrive for business files intended for individual use, up to one terabyte per person. Note that SharePoint limits are decided by your company’s tenant limit, however, OneDrive for business has a one terabyte per person limit by default.
  4. Microsoft Teams: Teams is immensely powerful as it allows you to chat with your team, hold meeting calls, collaborate, and co-author documents, all in one place. You can easily include files in ongoing conversations, and even tag the file for co-authoring. Teams is ideal to use for the more cohesive, quick online collaboration and is highly recommended.

Collaboration Conversations with Christina Cala and Manish Bhardia

https://youtu.be/zb8h3umVtpM

In an interview with Christina Cala, Founder and CEO of CALAborate, Manish Bhardia discussed how Think Ai values collaboration in their business on Christina's interview series, Collaboration Conversations.

When asked why Microsoft is the central software at Think Ai, Manish shared some personal insight;

"I started as a developer in the Microsoft world and I really liked the ease of use Microsoft tools provided us in programming, and that gave me an affection for Microsoft. That this company is making things easy for everybody on the planet, on every desk. And that's why when we started Think Ai as a business, I knew that if we could build on Microsoft Technology using Visual c++, .net, cloud, Office 365, and help end users become more productive then that would be a good win for us as a business, because we would be bringing the latest in technology and making it useful for end users."

When asked how Think Ai values collaboration, Manish shared with Christina;

"Collaboration, or the productivity which comes out of collaboration, is our biggest focus. We consider ourselves a productivity consultant, as the end result of technology is often productivity improvement. We work in teamwork solutions such as Teams and Share Point, and that totally relates to how a company can improve collaboration. So I would say collaboration is our biggest focus whenever we are working with any client. We focus heavily on how you can improve as a individual, collaboration with others and as a team, collaboration with teams across companies, with clients, etc. So our focus is collaboration, this topic is very near and dear to us."

We always looking forward to helping companies streamline their collaboration, and as a result, improve their productivity. Call (949) 864-6105 or e-mail info@thinkaicorp.com with any questions on collaboration solutions for your company.

SharePoint and Teams

 

1. Less email!

Collaboration gets that much better without the back and forth of email. Your inbox will  contain Teams notifications and reminders, but will be clutter-free!
