    Automatically adding Office365 SharePoint as a place in Office 2013

    We will be pushing out Office 2013 to our users in the new academic and we'll be pushing Office 365 to them as well, specifically OneDrive for Business. To help improve uptake of this, I'd like them to be able to easily save to their OFB account directly from an Office program. You can manually add OFB as an Office 365 SharePoint place but I'd like to be able to automate this if possible, preferably using a GPO but a script if necessary. Can it be done?

    I wouldn't bother with onedrive for business personally, its very limited in what it can do.

    I'm not sure there is a way to do this, (or a lot of other things) with a GPO.

    We gave up after finding too many limitations.

    Sorry, the question wasn't "Should I bother with OFB?", the question was "How do I automatically link OFB to Office?". I didn't ask for advice on whether it's worth implementing, I asked for advice on automatically linking it to Office. If you don't have anything useful to say on that matter, please don't stick your oar in saying that the whole endeavour is worthless. I don't particularly want your opinion on that. In any case, it's a free 25GB of online storage for our students. It may be feature limited compared to Google Drive, DropBox or whatever but it's free, we have it already, it does what we want from it and it works. Why look at anything else? Why pay for a rival service or go to the trouble of setting up a Google Apps account?

    Now looking further into it, Office 2013 now seems to be automatically signing people into their MS organisational accounts (I'm guessing enabling federation has done this) and linking to OFB automatically so hopefully this is a moot point.
