You can use OneDrive immediately if you wish, by logging into www.office.com with your UvA account and opening OneDrive. Below you will find instructions on how to use OneDrive.
OneDrive can be accessed in several ways:
You can bring all your personal documents together on OneDrive. These files can come from various sources, such as your W: drive, SurfDrive, DropBox, GoogleDrive, iCloud and/or USB stick.
Uploading files on OneDrive can be done through the explorer or through the browser.
Please keep in mind the following:
Once your documents are in OneDrive, you can choose to share them with fellow students, lecturers and/or external parties. This way, you can have a document reviewed or work together in the same document (at the same time). Sharing a document prevents sending it back and forth by e-mail. By sharing, everyone always has access to the latest version and changes are processed immediately.
