    Can workspace files reference Microsoft OneDrive/SharePoint (Office 365) site collection document libraries via their url's?
    My organisation is about to move from network drives to personal OneDrive and all my workspaces reference drive letters.
    I know OneDrive's can be mapped to a network drive letter but I don't think that will be possible for our implementation.

    Hi Martin

    Peter Horsbøll Møller supplied this answer:
    MapInfo Pro does not as far as I know support accessing data stored on Sharepoint.
    I would, however, say that it can access data from Onedrive but that would require that the data gets synced to your local computer. Also if multiple users are accessing and editing this file, there could be some issues getting the file synced between the individual users to avoid multiple users editing the same file at the same time.
    Does that help?

    Might be good to get a better understanding of what you would expect from better OneDrive/Dropbox support?

    Would you expect to be able to also edit your tables stored here through MapInfo Pro? Would the data be edited by multiple users?
    I think we already noted down the requirements to better support the path to the OneDrive folder as that often consists of the user name too.

    Anything else we need to be aware of?
