MC316147: OneDrive: Move your shortcuts in OneDrive

Updated March 29, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

You can now move the shortcuts you’ve added using “Add shortcut to OneDrive” into any folders in your OneDrive. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82166.

Now you can organize your ‘Add to OneDrive’ folder shortcuts the way you want by moving them into any private folder you create in your OneDrive.

MC316147: OneDrive: Move your shortcuts in OneDrive

When this will happen

  • Targeted Release: Will occur in mid-March (previously mid-February) and complete by mid-April.
  • Standard Release: We expect this to begin rolling out in mid-April (previously late March) and be fully completed by late April (previously mid-April).

How this will affect your organization

This feature allows end users to select a shortcut and move it to an existing private or shared folder within their OneDrive. When moving a shortcut to a folder into a shared folder, the short cut does not change its sharing permissions. People who don’t currently have access to the shortcut won’t be able to access its content, but can rename or remove the shortcut.

When a shortcut is moved, the shortcut will be shown in its new destination anywhere that you access your OneDrive—such as OneDrive Web, the sync client, Teams and Office.

Here’s the experience when you a move a shortcut to a shared folder within your OneDrive:
