How to use OneDrive to store your documents

With a Microsoft account, you can use the service OneDrive to host your files and documents, and then link them to your SimpleDifferent site.


1. Put your file on OneDrive

OneDrive is available on the web at http://onedrive.live.com, but it is more convenient to use the free app for Android, iPhone, iPad, PC and Mac.
Once you have installed the app, with an Android device or a computer, you can use the File Explorer to move your files onto OneDrive. With an iOS device, explore the "Share" or "Export" menus of the application you are using to edit your document, and check that OneDrive is supported.

On Android, use the share menu to add a file onto you OneDrive.
On a computer, with the File Explorer, you can add files to your OneDrive.
Some application for iPad or iPhone can exports documents to OneDrive.

2. Get and copy the share link


On Android:

On Android, select the file, click the share icon, then click "Share a link".
On the pop-up, select "View".
Then, select "Copy to clipboard".

On iPad:

On an iPad, select your file in OneDrive app, then tap the share icon and "Share a Link".
Then, press "View Only".
Last, copy the share link into the clipboard.

On a computer:

On a computer, use the File Explorer to share a file with OneDrive.
Click on "Get a link", then select "View only", and click "Create link".
You can now copy the share link.

3. Paste the link in the text editor of your website

For the last step, just go back to the SimpleDifferent text editor, create an external link, then paste the link in the URL field.
Note: The address starts with https://onedrive.live.com/


Once you have published your site, the link will give access to your file on OneDrive. Your visitors will then be able to download it, and probably to view it online as well.
