OneDrive for Business Connector - limitation

I am trying to create an App, using an excel which is stored on the OneDrive of a 'Group' - I have owner permissions to the group, but it does not appear to be available to create a connector to it (OneDrive for Business connector just goes to my file space, Sharepoint Connector just goes to a Sharepoint list) - I want to be able to connect to an Excel source which is in a group, so that the App is not permanently locked to my prescence in the organisation.

 

Is there a way to get to the Group files to use as the source data?

Hi @ElderAmoeba2271,

 

May I know what exactly did you mean by "Group"? Did you mean that you have a file that shared to a group in OneDrive for Business? As I do not see any Groups in OneDrive for Business site:

If you mean the Groups in People site, then files there was shared with groups in Outlook, not OneDrive for Business.

Thanks for replying quickly Mona.

 

What I mean is the files stored in a OneDrive in the 'Sites' shown on your first screenshot. (again, maybe I don't have quite the correct microsoft term for the functionality).

Eg, you have the Sites 'Team Site', 'Microsoft Team Site' and 'TS- Subsite' available to you. Files may be stored on there, and I would like to use a file from one of these shared locations as the data source for my App.

 

 Thanks!

The way you are describing it "Eg, you have the Sites 'Team Site', 'Microsoft Team Site' and 'TS- Subsite' available to you. Files may be stored on there, and I would like to use a file from one of these shared locations as the data source for my App."

 

This sounds to me more as a Sharepoint site than a OneDrive location.

Just a though.
