When you’re inside the remote desktop environment, you will see the following look and feel to Windows Explorer. This provides access to locations to store your information and documents. We have customised your profile within the Remote Desktop environment to link seemlessly with your Office 365 Team sites and OneDrive Pro. This provides you instant, uptodate access to your files within the Remote Desktop environment.
The Red box above shows shortcuts to access Office 365 OneDrive Pro and Sharepoint Team Documents. The Green box above shows local storage on the Remote Desktop. The use of these folders is intended as follows.
|Location||Description and Use|
||GeoMaster system files including, geodatabases and spatial data and templates. Most of the time users will not access these folders directly, except if adding generic layers and information to their GIS projects. There is also provision in this drive to access additional base GIS layers. You would not be commonly storing any files to this location, and only accessing them by default through ArcGIS or GeoMaster.|
|This is the storage location of the following two folders (“OneDrive Pro @ Your Company or Client Name” and SharePoint). You will also see system folders in here such as Desktop, Office which are common to your user profile.|
|OneDrive @ Your Company or Client Name||You own user temp work files storage. This provides up to 1TB of storage or a user to store any temp working maps or files which do not need to be located for others to use inside the “team site”. For example a GPX file which you have just saved out of GeoMaster which is just for yourself. This folder will also appear on any other PC or Smartphone you have set to access Office 365 with. It is also designed to Sync continously online so any file stored in this location will be available online.|
|Sharepoint||This is a folder of Sync’d SharePoint Online 365 team working document folders. Commonly you will just have a subfolder of documents available for access by you wider team. In this case shown above it provides access to the general file location for all your day to day forest management information, including harvest plans, PDF copies of forest maps, legal titles etc. Storage is limited only by that prescribed by your subscription (initially set to ~10GB). This folder will also appear on any other PC or Smartphone you have set to access Office 365 with. It is also designed to Sync continously online so any file stored in this location will be available online. You can sync as many document folders are you wish.|
So in Word 2013 (or other Office 2013 applications) for example you will find it easy to open or save to OneDrive Pro and your SharePoint Online team shared documents folder as these will appear as shown in the screen shot below.
Ways to access data stored in Office 365
The Office 365 team site (shown below) and OneDrive Pro provides a simple interface for accessing and updating documents and information stored. Follow the links to OneDrive Pro and Sites shown in red. This can be accessed from www.office365.com on any internet connected device including tablets, and smartphones.
Users can also access the same content using smartphone / tablet apps for iOS (iPhone, iPad), Andriod and Windows Phone. Shown below is the same team site accessed through a Windows Phone Office App. Files can be taken offline on your smartphone and used in the field to review and collect information. All files edited and added will be sync’d back to your Remote Desktop next time you login, creating seemless access to your files no matter where you maybe.
