Microsoft celebrates OneDrive’s 15th anniversary with a new landing page called OneDrive Home and it should make it easier to keep an eye on your work. Instead of landing on the My Files tab when you first open OneDrive, you’ll find yourself on the new home page similar to that dashboard in the online version of Office.

Like the Office web app, OneDrive Home lists your files, organized by how recently you opened them. Above the list are filters that allow you to sort your documents by Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF file types.

It’s easier to understand the new changes once you see them.

There’s also a new “Activity” column to the right of the “Owner” file field that tells you when someone leaves a comment, @mentions another user, or assigns you a task in a shared document. On the left side of the Home view, Microsoft is adding a new Quick Access section, where (just like in Windows) you can find and pin your most used spaces.

Unfortunately, these changes aren’t live at the moment — Microsoft says OneDrive Home will be available in “the next few months.” From the looks of it, however, the new homepage could serve as a central hub that should help you stay organized while collaborating remotely.

Aside from the OneDrive web app, Microsoft is also introducing its photo story function for the OneDrive mobile app (essentially the OneDrive equivalent of Instagram Stories) for users in Australia. The feature won’t reach users in the US or other regions until later this year.
