Microsoft to make it easier for businesses to manage their stuff on OneDrive

Microsoft is making a handful of changes to the way business users can interact with their files on the web over the coming weeks. The company will be implementing a number of small improvements to OneDrive making it even easier to create, share and locate files stored online. Prepare thy mouse for some right-clicking.

The OneDrive team talks about implementing the right-click menu for business users, which bundles a number of functions into a handy menu that's easy and convenient to access. Smart search is also being added to enable said users to commence typing their search term for OneDrive to display files and folders that match provided criteria.


Next up are changes to the way recent files are displayed online. Instead of a list of files (which may be preferable to many), Microsoft will be switching this view out in favor of a card-based interface. It's also easier to not only see and manage shared files, but to invite people to individual folders as they're created, rather than spending time going back to add colleagues at a later date.

As noted above, these changes should go live later this month.
