We are using Office 365 E1 (web only) licenses on ships via Chromebooks, and would like to be able to cache OneDrive files locally for when the vessels have little or no Internet access. I understand OneDrive syncs with Mac or Windows to provide offline access, but we would like to do this on Chromebooks. Google Drive already has this capability but we prefer staying with Office 365.

 

Any suggestions?

Check into seeing if you have this function. You could just download the Android app, which supports offline syncing. https://support.google.com/chromebook/answer/7021273?hl=en

Thanks for the response, Christopher. The Android apps won't work because E1 licenses don't allow editing with mobile apps.
