Hello,

My team primarily uses our Shared Drive to house information that we all use. One of those documents is the Case Tracker, a large excel file, that contains all of our cases for the past five years. I recently moved the tracker to OneDrive so that we could all update it simultaneously. This has been a problem in the past. 

However, some people still want to use the document in the Shared Drive. 

Is there a way to sync the version on OneDrive to the shared folder so that any changes made to one will automatically update the other? 

Thanks.

Sure you can! 

 

Right click on the Case file and create a shortcut, then copy the shortcut in the Share drive folder for everyone. 

 

This way they will edit the shortcut which will update the folder in the OneDrive client folder which will inturn sync it to Office 365 OneDrive online.
