How Do I Sync SharePoint Libraries to MAC Step by Step Guide

To sync SharePoint libraries to your Mac, you’ll need to use the OneDrive sync app that comes pre-installed with Office 2016 and later. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

Step 1: Launch the OneDrive App

  1. Go to the Finder and select the “Applications” folder.
  2. Find “OneDrive” and double-click on it to launch the app.

If you don’t see OneDrive in your Applications, download it from the Mac App Store and install it.

Step 2: Sign In to OneDrive

  1. When you first open OneDrive, you’ll be asked to sign in.
  2. Enter the email address and password associated with your Microsoft 365 account.
  3. Click “Sign In.”

Step 3: Set Up OneDrive

  1. You’ll see a window where you can choose where your OneDrive folder will be on your Mac. The default location is the OneDrive folder in your home folder, but you can choose a different location if you want.
  2. After choosing the location, click “Next.”
  3. You’ll see a screen where you can choose which folders to sync from your OneDrive. Click “Choose folders to sync” if you want to sync specific folders, or leave everything selected to sync everything.
  4. Click “Next.”

Step 4: Access SharePoint from your Web Browser

  1. Open your web browser and sign in to your Microsoft 365 account.
  2. Click on the app launcher (the nine dots in the upper-left corner), and then click on “SharePoint.”
  3. Navigate to the SharePoint site containing the library you want to sync.

Step 5: Sync the SharePoint Library

  1. On the SharePoint site, select the document library that you want to sync.
  2. Click on the “Sync” button. This will open the OneDrive app.
  3. In the OneDrive app, you’ll see a prompt asking if you want to sync the library to your device. Click “Sync Now.”

The SharePoint library should now sync to the OneDrive folder on your Mac. You can access it from the Finder under the “OneDrive” section on the sidebar. All the changes you make in this folder will be synced to SharePoint, and vice versa.
