Sharing files from your OneDrive account (web client and Desktop App)

Last updated:

You can easily share links to files from your existing OneDrive account with other Circuit users. The link to your OneDrive account is always kept up to date to reflect the latest version of the shared files. Extra storage is not required as the files are only stored in the OneDrive account and not transferred to Circuit.

  1. Create a new message or edit an existing message.
  2. Click , and then click Share form
  3. Select the files from your OneDrive account that you want to share, and then click Share. You can select up to 10 files at one time to share.
  4. To remove the OneDrive link before sending the message, click in the upper-right corner of the file. The file is automatically unshared and cannot be accessed any longer by its public URL.

Files will be shared in view mode only and depending on your account, personal or business, the view scope may differ.

  • The link from personal OneDrive accounts is public and the file can be accessed whether you are signed in to your account or not.

  • The link from OneDrive for business account is private and only people within your organization have access to the file. To view the file you have to sign in to your OneDrive for Business account, if you are not signed in.


When sharing links of OneDrive files, a share link is created by Circuit and the user can open it in view mode. Only users with additional rights will be automatically forwarded to the edit mode.
