OneDrive admin center settings are coming to the SharePoint admin center

The OneDrive and SharePoint admin centers are converging into one, providing you with holistic control as we streamline the admin experience.

This feature is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 65911.

When this will happen

  • Phase 1 is rolling out from mid-February through early March 2021, beginning with Targeted release (organization) tenants.
  • Phase 2 is rolling out from mid- through late March 2021, beginning with Targeted release (organization) tenants.

How this will affect your organization

In Phase 1, we’re adding OneDrive Sync, Storage, and Notifications settings to the Settings page in the SharePoint admin center. You can identify
them by the OneDrive icon and name. In this phase, there are no changes in the OneDrive admin center.

In Phase 2, we will add a link from the OneDrive admin center to the converged SharePoint admin center. In addition, we will add a banner in the OneDrive admin center announcing the new access point.

You will have access to OneDrive settings in both locations until late spring. We will communicate with you again before this retirement timeline is finalized.

What you need to do to prepare

When the link becomes available, we recommend using SharePoint admin center instead of the OneDrive admin center for improved:

  • Accessibility
  • Support for admin roles such as Global Reader
  • Reports and insights on the new home page (coming soon)
  • Performance and reliability

You might want to notify SharePoint and OneDrive admins about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
