OneDrive for Business - Integration
What is it?
The OneDrive for Business Integrations widget provides a portal into your existing personal OneDrive files from within your digital workplace. Through it you can view, add, and download files in OneDrive.
Features and functionality
The OneDrive for Business integrations widget provided many of the features available in the OneDrive web interface.
Search - You can search files and folders in your OneDrive through the search bar in the widget.
Add folders - You can create and name new folders and sub-folders through the widget.
Upload files - You can upload new files to any location in your OneDrive.

How to add a OneDrive Integrations widget

2. Select OneDrive for Business from the list of integrations
Click the Edit button on the integration widget you just placed. While on the Options tab select the OneDrive for Business icon.
Unless you would like to further customize the setup of the OneDrive integration widget, you can publish the page. When a member attempts to login to the widget with their organizational email the widget will detect the appropriate settings for the member.
3. Optional - Set the Tenant ID
