SharePoint and OneDrive: How to Create Shortcuts for Faster and Easier Collaboration

One of the challenges of working with digital documents is how to organize them in a way that makes sense for you. Different people have different preferences and habits when it comes to file management. Some like to create folders and subfolders for every project, topic, or category. Others prefer to keep everything in one place and use tags, filters, or search functions to find what they need. And some may use a combination of both methods or something else entirely.

Whatever your style, there is a feature that can help you access your SharePoint documents more easily and efficiently: OneDrive shortcuts. Shortcuts are links that you can create from SharePoint document libraries to your OneDrive. They allow you to create your own structure and organization for your files and folders, without affecting the original location or permissions of the documents. In this blog post, I will show you how to create shortcuts from SharePoint document libraries to your OneDrive and how to use them effectively.
