Is there a way to login and access your OneDrive account with the OneDrive application from the Mac Store with your school/company account? At the moment, my credentials are not recognized.

  • Does it work if you log in from within the school? – nohillside Nov 4 '15 at 9:58
  • Unfortunately not. For example with Office 365/Office 2016 for OS X, when I enter my schools mail address in the login to One Drive form, it redirects me to the login page from my university, but the OneDrive for OS X app doesn't. – sluijs Nov 4 '15 at 10:51
  • So maybe the credentials are just wrong? – nohillside Nov 4 '15 at 11:02
  • I used the wrong version, I don't exactly know why there are separate versions of one drive, but anyhow I needed OneDrive for Business. Thanks anyhow! – sluijs Nov 4 '15 at 11:09

I didn't know there were two separate versions of OneDrive, one for schools/companies, that is called OneDrive Business and one for normal Microsoft Accounts that is just called OneDrive. According to the official homepage OneDrive for Business is not available (yet) for OS X. Although as stated here, it is coming and a preview version is available for download now. And fortunately, it works.

OneDrive for Business is also making its debut on OS X today, in the form of a sync client available as a public preview from the Microsoft Download Center.
