Office 365 Update: File Move in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business

File Move is a new Office 365 feature. With File Move, you can now move files between locations in Office 365—including personal files and shared sites–while preserving the full fidelity of version history and document metadata.

This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID: 25694.

How does this affect me?
The new feature gives team members across your organization the ability to move files while preserving version history and metadata, and unlocks scenarios for file and content management. Users are prompted to accept or cancel before moving files to any location that doesn’t support a file’s custom metadata.

The File Move feature will begin rolling out to Targeted Release organizations starting January 29, 2018, and will begin rolling out to Standard Release organizations in the coming months.

What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
You don’t need to do anything, but you may consider updating your user training and notifying your helpdesk. Please click Additional information to learn more.
