OneDrive: Move your shortcuts in OneDrive

OneDrive for Business, Microsoft 365 Experts

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC316147 · Published Jan 19, 2022

Message Summary

You can now move the shortcuts you’ve added using “Add shortcut to OneDrive” into any folders in your OneDrive.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82166.

When this will happen:

Targeted Release: Will occur in mid-February

Standard Release: We expect this to begin rolling out in mid-February and be fully completed by late February. 

How this will affect your organization:

This feature allows end users to select a shortcut and move it to an existing private or shared folder within their OneDrive. When moving a shortcut to a folder into a shared folder, the short cut does not change its sharing permissions. People who don’t currently have access to the shortcut won’t be able to access its content, but can rename or remove the shortcut.

When a shortcut is moved, the shortcut will be shown in its new destination anywhere that you access your OneDrive—such as OneDrive Web, the sync client, Teams and Office.

What you need to do to prepare:

You might want to notify your end users, update your user training, and prepare your help desk. For your users: The support article titled Add shortcuts to shared folders in OneDrive for work or school describes the new capabilities.
