Hi everyone,

 

We are facing a problem of too long url on files inside Onedrive folders, one of the reason it's when the organisation name has been set we used the full name of the company and it's very long so we thinking to shorter but i'm afraid it will makes onedrive having some issues.

I guess i will have to uninstall and reinstall OneDrive on computers to have the new organisation name in the local path  of Onedrive.

 

Anyone already done ? Any suggestions ?

Yeah, i believe that’s What you can do! It should work if you change the organisational name and then do a resetup of the client

You cannot rename the organization, at least not the name used as part of the ODFB/SPO URLs.

No, but the folder name of his onedrive is possible
