Set users' pinned folders in Office 2016 Desktop apps

Angus Hamilton



I'm evaluating Office Groups, but a major issue is the inability to open/save quickly from Desktop apps. One possible solution I considered is pinning the group file locations - but this has to be done manually by each user.

I can't find where the pinned locations are stored (local registry appears to only include file system locations).

Is the pinned file locations part of the Office 365 account/profile and is it accessible programatically to allow me to set pinned locations for each user?
