Document collaboration in Exchange 2016

Along with SharePoint Server 2016 Exchange 2016, enables Outlook over the web users to link to and share and exchange documents which are stored in One Drive for Business processes in an on-premises SharePoint server rather than attaching files to messages.


Users present in an on-premises environment may collaborate on files in the similar manner that’s used in Office 365.


When an Exchange 2016 user gets a Excel, Word, or PowerPoint file via an email attachment, and the file is stored in One-drive for Business or on-premises SharePoint, the user have privilege of accessing and editing that file in Outlook on the web alongside the message.


To get this done, you’ll require a separate computer system at your on-premises organization that’s running Office Online Server.


Exchange 2016 also launched with the following enhancements relating to document collaboration:


  • Saving files and storing to One-drive for Business.
  • Uploading a file to One-drive for Business purpose.
  • Recently Used lists populated with both local and online files.
