OneDrive offers a new design
On 15th anniversary, OneDrive will have a new landing page called OneDrive Home.
According to The Verge, instead of going to the My Files tab when the user first opens OneDrive. They will be taken to a new home page that resembles the taskbar in the online version of Office. Similar to the Office web app, the OneDrive home page lists a user’s files, organized by how recently they’ve been accessed. Above the list are filters that allow users to sort documents by Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF file types. According to The Verge, there’s also a new “Activity” column to the right of the file’s “Owner” field, which tells a user when someone leaves a comment, @mentions another user, or assigns them a task in a shared document. On the left side of the home view, Microsoft is adding a new Quick Access section where users can find and pin their most frequently used places. Unfortunately, these changes are not reflected at the moment. According to The Verge, Microsoft said that OneDrive Home will be available in the “coming months.”However, as it stands, the new homepage could serve as a central hub to help users stay organized while collaborating remotely, the server said.
