Access and Share Files with My Places

My Places allows you to set up shortcut locations to quickly import, export, or share your captures to a cloud storage destination.

OneDrive for Business

OneDrive for Business is a place where you can store, sync, and share your work files. In Snagit version 12.3, add OneDrive for Business as a destination in My Places to:

  • Access your files from any computer or device.
  • Share files with your coworkers for collaboration.
  • Send a link to quickly communicate or to get feedback from others. 

Note: OneDrive for Business accounts are different from OneDrive accounts. OneDrive accounts are intended for personal storage separate from your workplace. OneDrive accounts are not supported at this time.

Privacy in OneDrive for Business

The files are private until shared from the Share options located on the OneDrive for Business site. In the Share options, you can:

  • Share files with everyone in your organization by placing it in the Share with Everyone folder.
  • Share files with specific co-workers by name or by email.
  • Set who can view or edit the files.
  • Share with others outside of your organization depending on your company’s privacy settings.
