On a Mac computer, you can save Microsoft Office files to your Stony Brook OneDrive account in either Office 2011 or 2016. (Office 2011 requires Microsoft Document Connection, which may require OS or Safari updates to work.)

Office 2016

  1. From your Office 2016 file, select File > Save as
  2. From the left menu, select OneDrive - Stony Brook U... (your Stony Brook emaill address will appear below this option)
  3. Complete Save As title and File Format and select Save

Office 2011

  1. Set up locations you want to save files to in Microsoft Document Connection
  2. Open Microsoft Document Connection
  3. From the SHAREPOINT list on the left, select the location (added in step 1) you want to save the file to (e.g., Documents)
  4. At the top, click Add File
  5. In the Finder window that opens, select the file and click Upload
  6. The file will upload to the selected location

*Document Connection will prompt you to sign in with your NetID and NetID password; this is done through Safari. As of spring 2014, Stony Brook University NetID sign in requires an updated version of Safari, which may require updating the Mac operating system. The update to the Mavericks operating system (10.9) is free. Contact Customer Engagement & Support with update questions (632-9800).
