Tips and recommendations
With OneDrive, you can sync your Desktop and the Documents and Pictures folder from your work PC across devices. When combined with a work laptop, this feature is very useful as you will have the same Docs and Pictures Desktop content on both devices.
Note that if you also connect your work OneDrive to your home (non-work) computer and also enable Desktop, Documents and Picture sync on that computer, the data from your home computer will be mixed with your work data.
Further details can be found on the MUNI IT website Connecting OneDrive folders on PC | IT services of Masaryk University (muni.cz).
You can also make files stored on OneDrive and SharePoint storage available to other users. There are several permission levels and a number of useful settings. For more details, see IT MUNI How to share documents and folders | Masaryk University IT Services (muni.cz).
Yes, OneDrive storage meets all necessary technical and legal measures and officially serves as the primary synchronization and backup solution for user work data and documents within the Faculty of Arts. Further details can be found at IT MUNI Data Protection | IT Services of Masaryk University (muni.cz).
By default, only you have access to the data stored on OneDrive. You can give other users access to individual folders or files using the appropriate settings. For more details, see IT MUNI How to share documents in Office 365 | IT services of Masaryk University (muni.cz).
The default OneDrive storage capacity is 1TB (1000GB). In justified cases, the capacity can be further increased by sending a request to email@example.com.
In Office 365, the term SharePoint refers to shared repositories that can be accessed by users with appropriate permissions (typically, for example, members of a specific team in Microsoft Teams or Office 365 groups). Within Office 365, you can access these shared repositories from different locations and applications. So, in addition to SharePoint, you may also see other names for these repositories: the Files tab (access via MS Teams), Web (access via Outlook), or Shared Libraries and Quick Access (access via OneDrive) - but in all cases, it's the same service - a shared repository or SharePoint.
The main advantage of SharePoint (compared to OneDrive storage) is the fact that files stored on SharePoint are not tied to a specific user. In practice, this means that if, for example, a new colleague joins the team - he or she gains access to the storage automatically, but if he or she leaves the team, nothing happens to the files he or she created or edited.
As with OneDrive storage, you can connect your SharePoint storage to the file explorer in Windows or to the Finder in macOS. For more details, see IT MUNI Storing and working with documents | IT services of Masaryk University (muni.cz).
