Project Description
Office 365 Drive Mapping for use with Enterprise Desktops. Allows users to utilize the technology known as SharePoint Online for folder redirection.

This project is to enable the use of Office 365 as redirected folders in Microsoft. Specifically, this script and method can be used on a Windows 7 desktop (or higher) with Citrix and roaming profiles (or any persistent profile method). What makes this unique is that no local storage is used (unless you can't connect to office 365 and then it's only temporary).

This script was developed by Tyler Bithell and Tom Gamull for a customer implementation. The customer desired a method to eliminate the use of local or shared storage and leverage their Microsoft Office 365 subscription.

You must have a subscription that gives you the SharePoint Online (Groove, SkyDrive Pro or OneDrive for Business). This is NOT the same as SkyDrive or OneDrive (these are just an online storage method, like Dropbox).

We leverage a method of WebDAV drive mapping utilizing NET USE. Although you can utilize OneDrive for Business for Microsoft Office applications directly, non-integrated applications are not able to be used except through navigation to the folder. This is often a problem for task works, students and others used to using My Documents or Downloads. Therefore this script was created to deal with this issue.

The script was announced but not shown at the Citrix Synergy 2014 conference in #SYN119. This script will also be discussed in the Cisco Live session Tom Gamull is presenting on Atlanta Public Schools.
