OneDrive for Business, Microsoft 365 Experts

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC316434 · Published Jan 20, 2022

Message Summary

Instead of automatically copying the link with default permissions, we want to give customers the ability to change their link type and permissions prior to generating a sharing link and pasting it into the app of their choice.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 88866.

When this will happen:

Targeted release (entire org): We will begin rolling this out in mid-January and expect to complete rollout by end of January.

Standard release: We will begin rolling this out in early February and expect to complete rollout by mid-February.

How this will affect your organization:

Users who use the Copy Link command in OneDrive/SharePoint Web will be affected by this change.

The new flow is the following:

  1. Click on “Copy Link” in OneDrive Business Web
  2. Select your link type or permissions by clicking on the new link settings entry point. (Optional)
  3. Click on “Copy” to generate the link.
  4. Receive a confirmation that the link has been successfully copied.
  5. Note: Some users may see this change before other users inside your organization.

What you need to do to prepare:

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate
