Word 2013 Delivers Automatic Integration With SkyDrive

When you save a file from within Word 2013, you have the option of saving to your SkyDrive. The file is saved in a local folder managed by SkyDrive and also uploaded to your cloud SkyDrive.


Microsoft Office 2013 sports many new features, one of which is full integration with Microsoft’s SkyDrive cloud storage service. This provides support for full-team collaboration. The Office apps, such as Word, are fully aware of SkyDrive and by default let you save your documents into your SkyDrive directory on your local computer. With the help of SkyDrive, those files are synchronized with the files in your SkyDrive cloud storage, letting you access them from anywhere, or even edit them using the online Web version of Microsoft Office. You can also share your documents with other people, which provides them with a link to access the documents from their own SkyDrive account. From there, the other people can make changes to the documents at the same time that you're changing them. As you're working, you'll see the areas you're changing. Then when you save, your document will receive the updates from the other person before saving. If there are any conflicts, you'll be notified of them and given a chance to fix them.
