Take Aways


  • Both OneDrive and SharePoint are part of the Microsoft 365 Ecosystem that offers seamless integration of other productivity tools like Word, Excel, and Teams.
  • They are both cloud-based. They allow users to access their files anytime and anywhere with an internet connection, promoting flexibility and remote collaboration.
  • Both platforms prioritise security. They offer features such as encryption, multi-factor authentication, and compliance capabilities, ensuring data protection and adherence to regulatory standards.
  • OneDrive and SharePoint include version control features that enable users to track document changes, revert to previous versions, and maintain a clear history of document edits. This fosters collaboration without fear of data loss.
  • Both tools allow users to collaborate in real time on documents, allowing multiple users to work on the same document simultaneously, enhancing teamwork and productivity.


  • Scope of Collaboration
    • OneDrive is primarily designed for individual users, providing a personal space for file storage and collaboration.
    • SharePoint is geared towards team or organisational collaboration, offering a broader platform for creating intranet sites and collaborative workspaces.
  • Access Control and Organisational Structure
    • On OneDrive, permissions are generally set at an individual file or folder level. This is suitable for personal repositories and limited sharing scenarios.
    • SharePoint offers more granular access control, allowing permissions to be managed at the site, library or individual file level. It also supports a hierarchical structure with site collections, sites, libraries and folders. This provides greater flexibility for team collaboration.
  • Integration with Microsoft Teams
    • OneDrive integrates with Microsoft Teams for personal file sharing within the team context.
    • SharePoint serves as the backend storage for Teams, providing a robust foundation for collaborative channels and team-wide content.
  • Team Communication
    • OneDrive primarily focuses on file storage and lacks the built-in communication features in SharePoint.
    • SharePoint incorporates communication features such as news, announcements, and discussion boards, fostering a more comprehensive team collaboration environment.
  • Site Customisation
    • OneDrive has limited customisation options, focusing on individual user preferences.
    • SharePoint allows extensive customisation, including site themes, layouts, and the incorporation of third-party apps, providing a tailored collaborative environment.
