How to handle office template location once they moved to OneDrive?

Hello

 

We have some custom templates of office programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). These templates are by default stored in the private folders of the user in File Server(H: drive).

 

As we are doing file server migration to OneDrive, we want to understand that how the office programs will know where to look for those templates once they will be moved from default location to OneDrive. Is there any kind of settings need to be modifyin Office Programs?

 

Regards

Ashish

The only way I see you can continue working with your templates while they are stored in ODFB is by synchronizing them to your local PC so Office clients are aware of them. Another alternative is to use those templates as templates in content types you customize in SharePoint Online sites:
