Can someone tell me how we disarm the function for a document saved to OneDrive on the desktop has to upload to the cloud at the same time? This also is frustrating when opening documents as we have to wait for the document to open as it is collecting the document from the cloud even when we have asked to open the document locally.
We just want the syncing to the cloud to take place in the background
So, if you do this you won't get coauthoring, and could open yourself up to conflicts if you share files, but if you don't want this to happen, I believe if you turn this off it will prevent office from opening up online and open the files locally. Right click onedrive cloud in systray then pick settings, then uncheck this box.
