Support for OneDrive

Hello,

 

I work for a company with circa 250K employees. We are in the process of shifting all documents over to OneDrive and I've noticed that when I have an Alteryx workflow that uses inputs stored on OneDrive the connection can be very intermittent. I use the UNC file naming protocol for my input/directory tools, but more often than not I need to run a VBA script that accesses OneDrive before Alteryx tools will connect.

 

There's a couple of posts on this community about this, but nothing in the ideas board. I believe the SharePoint connector is being updated for v11, but nothing for OneDrive.

 

I'd like there to be better integration to OneDrive for business and SharePoint Online please.

 

Thanks,

John.

I work for a fortune 120 company and we also really need the ability to interact with and publish to one drive. Thanks!

Hi All,

 

Thanks for the feedback on this. Since there's clearly a need for this across our user base, we've added this to our roadmap. Current plans are to have it out in H1 2018.

 

Best,

Alex

We do a lot of connection with OneDrive and use the OneDrive Sync Client. This seems to work fine (without any re-login required). We are also able to sync SharePoint document libraries for Alteryx Server using the OneDrive Sync functionality. This is has proven invaluable. 

 

Not sure if others have experienced similar success.

Hi aehrenwo,

 

We don't have Alteryx Server so our current workaround is indeed using Sync, but as we work with many OneDrive and SharePoint files/directories our local drives soon fill up.

 

Glad to hear a full solution may be available in Q2.
