I can send files to an outlook group and see them in the files location. I can readily save attachments to the file location but if I just want to save directly from an office app like word or excel that seems harder. (I can sync the group's site to my local disk and then it appears in that way).
Specifically, I note that the group sites are created in sites under my main SharePoint (in \sites\) location but when I choose the SharePoint site from Save as these sites don't appear in the list (I have not manually added them to the main site's list myself).
If I try to add a place the office 365 SharePoint option asks for the e-mail address but only reads the top level site - there is no option to choose a sub site (like the outlook groups).
I'd have hoped that these sites would other appear under the main site without any intervention or even better appear in some kind of groups folder. Ideally when I choose to add a place there'd be groups button and I could then add my groups as save locations.
perhaps there is a way to do this.
Expecting the average group user to know a URL doesn't work and I might not want to sync the files locally (which provides an easy solution).
Have I missed something?
