    Question OneDrive on Office 365

    Hello all,

    I'm making some progress with SharePoint online, but still have a few questions hopefully someone can help with!?

    Firstly I've noticed you can now hide the Newsfeed and Sites tabs at the top right. To do this, navigate to Admin > SharePoint > Settings. Here you can select to hide them, so it only shows OneDrive, along with Outlook, Calendar and People tabs!

    There are some nice clear menus along the top, including New, Upload, Sync etc... but is there anyway to include the Recycle Bin directly here, instead of going through menus at the top?

    Also how can I create a generic Staff Common area, so users with permission can add/edit/remove files etc... Many thanks!

  2. Thanks to Michael from:

    Hi Michael

    It's only 5 mins work, if you want to call we can do it (FOC)
    To add a recycle bin you need to grab an icon and some javascript

    PM us for deets.

    Maybe you could post the instructions for others anyway (mainly the staff common area bit)

    Would that it were so easy Mon Amie.

    There's no hard fast rule in play as it's all depends on settings, I'll be sure to add Office 365 tips and tricks to our blog posts on the website over the coming weeks

    Thanks @Michael I've been looking for this for ages.

    I seem to remember Live@EDU used to be so easy when it came to putting an image in the Top Bar.

    I think the difference being Live@Edu was just Exchange and nothing more, whereas now it's a group of technologies, all sort of working together. Microsoft still have a lot of work to do in terms of simplifying the admin console.

    As I say, a lot of good work has been done - but it's very clear it's aimed at Business and not Education. It would be easy enough for Microsoft to give us the relevant options in the admin console.

    Agree, I've currently got a call open relating to the fact that normal users when they click on their Outlook link in the top bar they lose the OneDrive link, I don't know if anyone else is experiencing that issue, admin users see the OneDrive link when they in Outlook.
