Brightspace and OneDrive


Hi There,

I'm wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a resource which provides some details on sharing permissions for OneDrive file links added to content(NCE) when using the following workflows:

Add>Existing>OneDrive> Select File/Folder

Insert Quicklink>OneDrive> Select File/Folder.

In testing using the workflows above seems to provide View only access. Is there a way to manage the level of access provided, allowing students to View and Edit a shared file when using these workflows does access to Edit need to be managed from OneDrive?

Any advice appreciated!

    Hello @jennifer.F.105

    Anything added to Content is designed to be consumed as part of a lesson so currently the View only access is granted via the integration.

    In order to allow users to edit a file shared, you could try creating a standard html content topic and using a sharing link generated from the document to which you want to allow editing - so yes manage the access from OneDrive or the Microsoft Application being used.

    Your request is an interesting workflow, please feel free to submit it to our Product Idea Exchange!

    Thanks for clarifying Christin. I definitely think an option to Manage Access type when adding One Drive files to Content would be a useful addition.
