OneDrive for Business Deployment Issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are in the process of granting some of our end-users access to OneDrive for Business.

    There are a couple of issues we need to work out before doing so.  I thought getting some ideas from individuals with OneDrive for Business experience my be the best place to start.  Here are the open issues that I need some advice on --

    1) What is the most efficient and least confusing way to deploy OneDrive for Business to an end user?  The idea here being that the end-user does not get confused between there OneDrive for Business account and their personal account.  We are planning on disabling personal OneDrive on workstations via a GPO, but I do not know how to do this on mobile devices or in the web clients.

    2) We would like managers to have full visibility into their employees OneDrive for Business accounts.  For example, I have a manager with 20 employees.  How can I grant this manager access to view the employees OneDrive contents and search those contents?  That manager would only have access to those 20 employees OneDrive for Business accounts and nobody else.  What is the best to configure this type of management visibility into accounts, but to also limit that visibility to the manager's employees only? ... with this said, would it just be easier to create a team site in SP Online rather than grant managers access to individual OneDrive for Business accounts?  Could we accomplish this with Office 365 groups?

    Any advice is appreciated.
