As part of a continuing effort to make the digital workspace of university students, faculty, and staff more modern and user-friendly, we are pleased to announce new OneDrive features for university-managed machines. 

Two new features will be added to university-managed machines in Fall 2021 include: 

  1. Automatic Sign-in:  The OneDrive sync client will automatically be signed-in for you.  NOTE:  Mac users must go to the OneDrive application and sign-in with HawkID@uiowa.edu the first time.
  2. Files On-Demand:  Files On-Demand keeps your files in the cloud until you are ready to use them. This saves space on local hard drives as well as keeps your data safe.
