Is your company using OneDrive for Business already?

In that case you’re lucky, because in conjunction with TeamViewer, these two are just a perfect combination.

If OneDrive for Business is your company’s cloud storage solution of choice, you’ll already be enjoying the advantages of the cloud:

Have access to your files wherever you are, whenever you want and from your device of choice.

In the past, TeamViewer and the available integrated cloud services have already proven how much they complement each other.

That’s why we’re happy that OneDrive for Business is the most recent one to join the list of TeamViewer cloud services integrations and that from now on you can enjoy their combined advantages.

Expanding Our Integrated File Sharing Services

With OneDrive for Business integrated in TeamViewer, you’ll be able to use yet another cloud service to share files via remote sessions, meetings or the file transfer function .

Let’s say you’re in a meeting with a potential customer and you’d like to share some informational material that you’ve prepared and deposited in a folder of your company’s OneDrive for Business storage.

All you have to do is to click the file box widget, browse to the folder to select the files and share them with the receiver. There’s no need to upload those files that would cause a delay!

The same principle is true, when you’re in a remote session to collaborate with a colleague or if you’re working in remote support and you’d like to share a file with your customer.

With integrated cloud services, you have the easiest solution you can get.

How to Share Files with TeamViewer 12 and OneDrive for Business

OneDrive for Business is one of the supported cloud storage providers for the file box widget within a TeamViewer session. The integration allows you to easily access and transfer files from your OneDrive storage during a remote control session or online meeting.

1. In the remote control window, click Files & Extras.

    Hello, I try to use this functionnality since a few weeks in version 14, but I can never reach the folder and files in OneDrive. It asks my credentials, and then it search for folder indefinitely (I let it turn more than 20 minutes...). Is there someone who had same problem or is there any known issue about that ? Thank you, best regards, Florian

An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
