M365 Changelog: (Updated) OneDrive: Move your shortcuts in OneDrive
MC316147 – Updated March 29, 2022: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
You can now move the shortcuts you’ve added using “Add shortcut to OneDrive” into any folders in your OneDrive.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82166.
When this will happen:
Targeted Release: Will occur in mid-March (previously mid-February) and complete by mid-April
Standard Release: Microsoft expects this to begin rolling out in mid-April (previously late March) and be fully completed by late April (previously mid-April).
How this will affect your organization:
This feature allows end users to select a shortcut and move it to an existing private or shared folder within their OneDrive. When moving a shortcut to a folder into a shared folder, the short cut does not change its sharing permissions. People who don’t currently have access to the shortcut won’t be able to access its content, but can rename or remove the shortcut.
When a shortcut is moved, the shortcut will be shown in its new destination anywhere that you access your OneDrive—such as OneDrive Web, the sync client, Teams and Office.
Here’s the experience when you a move a shortcut to a shared folder within your OneDrive:
