OneDrive for Business Updated with New Web Interface

Coming soon

Microsoft began rolling out a web interface update for OneDrive for Business this week. It says the new UI is clean, simple, intuitive, and consistent, while adding new features such as Simple Controls, Site Folders, smarter Search, and more.

The new interface will roll out over the coming weeks. So if you don't see it yet, no worries.

Changes include...

Updated look and feel. The overall web UI has been revamped with some new onscreen elements, providing access to Site Folders, the Recycle Bin, and various document tools.

Simple Controls. A new bank of Simple Controls—New, Upload, Sync, Edit, Manager and Share—sits prominently on top of file lists in all team site document libraries.

Site Folders link. A new Site Folders link in your main OneDrive for Business web view takes you directly to those document libraries within sites you follow.

Smarter Search. In addition to moving the OneDrive for Business search box from the upper right to the upper left in the web UI, Microsoft has also made Search smarter: You can now take various actions—including sharing a document—from the pop-up search results UI.

Recycle Bin link. As with Site Folders, there is a new Recycle Bin link in the left-hand navigation area of your OneDrive for Business web view.

This update applies to all business versions of Office 365—inducing Small Business, Small Business Premium, Midsize Business, and Enterprise E1, E3, and E4, as well as Office 365 Education A2, A3, and A4, and Office 365 government G1, G3, and G4.
