In the desktop version of Word, Excel, etc., how can we pre-define a list of save locations (SharePoint sites, Teams file areas, etc.) for our users?

 

Users aren't very aware of our SharePoint site organization; we'd like to pre-set the 4 or 5 common SharePoint sites/libraries our users should be saving documents to so they don't have to browse for them. Can this be accomplished through group policy?

 

We're trying to drive user adoption of SharePoint and Teams sites, but users are finding them cumbersome to save documents to.

 

I'm talking about this area:
