MC288642: OneDrive and SharePoint: Improved Move or Copy user experience

We’re refreshing the Move/Copy user experience in OneDrive and SharePoint to make it easier for you to move and copy your files and folders. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 85567.

MC288642: OneDrive and SharePoint: Improved Move or Copy user experience

Affected Workloads

  • SharePoint Online
  • OneDrive for Business

When this will happen

We will gradually roll out starting with Targeted release in mid-October and complete for Standard release in mid-November.

How this will affect your organization

When a user moves or copies a file or folder within OneDrive or SharePoint, they will see a new dialog-based experience to choose the destination for their content. There is no change to the underlying Move or Copy capabilities—all limitations, errors and admin settings will be unimpacted.

What you need to do to prepare

You might want to notify your OneDrive and SharePoint end users, update your user training, and prepare your help desk.

For your users: The support article titled Move or copy files in SharePoint describes the limitations and current Move experience. The screenshots will be updated to reflect the new experience as it’s rolling out to customers.
