Pin shared libraries to Quick Access

OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Online, SharePoint Development Services, SharePoint Development

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC343795 · Published Mar 16, 2022

Message Summary

We’re adding the capability to pin shared libraries to the Quick Access section in OneDrive Web to easily find and access the places where you regularly work. We’re also surfacing a list of your recently used shared libraries in the “More Places” page within OneDrive to help you find the places that you’ve recently opened files from.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82165

When this will happen:

Targeted release (select users and entire org): will begin rolling this out in late March and expect to wrap up by mid April.

Standard: will begin rolling this out in mid April and expect to complete rollout late April.

How this will affect your organization:

End users will be able to pin document libraries to the Quick Access section in the left nav of their OneDrive, using the “Pin to Quick Access” command for document libraries within OneDrive and SharePoint. Pinning a document library will add it to the top of Quick Access section. Users will be able to un-pin the document libraries from the Quick Access section as well. This command will only appear at the document library level and will not be available when you navigate into a folder or subfolder in a site.

End users will see a Recent list of document libraries that have been recently used in the OneDrive left nav and “More places” page. While we expect that this will be a more predictable and easy-to-understand list in the long term, end users may be confused when the list of Teams & Sites in the left nav changes.

To minimize the disruption to your organization, we recommend that end users pin any missing places that they regularly use to their Quick Access section. End users can access the teams & sites which were formerly available in the OneDrive left nav from the Frequent list in SharePoint Home, and use the “Pin to Quick Access” command to ensure that these sites will appear in their OneDrive left nav.

What you need to do to prepare:

You might want to notify OneDrive users, update your user training, and prepare your help desk.
