Like the original experience, the new experience presents two choices to users who want to share: type email addresses to send a link in email, or copy a link to the clipboard. Both the “Share” and “Get a link” command support all three types of links in OneDrive, including anonymous access links (accessible by anyone), company shareable links (accessible to those within your organization) and restricted links (accessible to a custom set of users both in and outside your organization). This allows users to more easily choose their method of sharing (email or copying to clipboard) while retaining the full set of permissions choices. As always, the new sharing experience respects all IT sharing and access policies that are in place, so users will be able to get their work done while complying with the practices established by their IT administrators. It is rolling out to customers this month and we expect it to be complete in February.
