Group Sites not Visible in OneDrive for Business


Issue:

Groups and sites listed in Outlook are different than what appears in OneDrive for Business (new/modern experience). In Outlook all the Office 365 groups are shown that the user is a member of, however, in OneDrive for Business modern view it will only show a few.

* If you switch to the classic OneDrive experience then all the Office 365 groups are shown.

Resolution:

To have the group sites appear in the OneDrive list, navigate to the mail icon and select a link under Groups to go to the group site.

group-sites

Once there, select More and choose Site:

planner

Then click on the Star “Not following” (highlighted below):

not-following

This will add the group to the sites that appear in the OneDrive modern view.

*This behavior is by design for the Modern experience in OneDrive for Business.
