OneDrive: Sharing Files and Folders (iOS)


This article provides instructions for sharing files and folders in Microsoft OneDrive for iOS, the online cloud storage system offered by Microsoft for Apple devices.


  1. Download the OneDrive app in the App Store.
  2. Choose Sign-In and use your full email address and email password.
  3. To select the items you want to share, click on the three dots in the upper right corner and choose Select Items.
  4. Touch and hold the file or folder you want to share until a check mark appears next to it, indicating that the item has been selected. Then, touch the share button--which looks like a square with an upward arrow--and choose Invite People.
  5. Type in the email addresses of the people with whom you want to share. To restrict their access to viewing only, tap the slider next to Allow editing? to toggle their editing access off and click Add.
    Note: It is very important to restrict access to only users who should have access.
  6. At the bottom of the screen, choose the Shared tab to view files shared by you and with you.
