This post is the first of my SP14 Keynote highlights series where I provide some highlights of the next version of SharePoint. These highlight are from the SP24 Conference Keynote that Bill Baer delivered.

“Shared with Me” coming to SharePoint

Something to lookout for in the next version of SharePoint (possibly SharePoint 2016 or Office16) or even soon is a summary of documents and folders that have been “Shared with Me”. It appears that the “Share with Me” page is already available in SharePoint Online however the summary of folders shared with you isn’t.

It’s pretty self explanatory but a list of documents or folders that have been shared with you will be displayed in your OneDrive for Business site.

I wonder if this might extend to include scenarios such as multiple environments or Office 365 sites, to create a true consolidated view of files that have been shared with you. I’m always searching my inbox to find emails from colleagues where they have shared files with me a one single place for this information would be well received.
