Belmont's secure document storage for faculty and staff files
Office365 OneDrive is the recommended storage solution for faculty and staff campus document storage. OneDrive offers 1TB of protected file storage for each user. OneDrive is supported by IT as the primary document storage solution on campus for faculty and staff offering improved information security over third-party non-supported services such as Dropbox and portable disk drives. OneDrive utilizes Microsoft’s cloud technology to store documents that are accessible from a users’ PC, Mac, tablet or other mobile device with password access. In addition, OneDrive will provide mobile access to your personal documents so that they are accessible from anywhere.
OneDrive is connected to campus licensed Microsoft Office Suite of applications and to your Belmont Outlook email. OneDrive also includes the ability to create documents using Microsoft Office applications in the cloud with online versions of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and OneNote. Because OneDrive is an integrated secure service from Microsoft we feel that this service will support the needs of faculty and staff for secure document storage and accessibility.
All faculty and staff have a OneDrive created at the time of email account creation. Access to OneDrive is available from outlook.belmont.edu in the upper right part of the main outlook web screen. Users can also drag and drop files to the OneDrive for Business folder on the desktop.
