How to sync files on a Mac
This one is for all the Mac users out there; if you haven’t figured
out how to do this you’re in for a treat.
I’m not going to lie to you, not being an experienced Mac user made this
much more difficult than it probably should have been. Anyways, if you’re using
a Mac syncing with your SharePoint site through OneDrive isn’t really an option
as this functionality isn’t available. However, there is a way to sync your
SharePoint site with your Mac without using OneDrive which will allow you to
upload, edit, and save all your changes without ever having to login to
1. On your Mac, in the upper right-hand corner
click the Spotlight.
2. Type Microsoft Document Connection and click Microsoft Document Connection.
Document Connection application will open, click Add Location.
4. From the
drop-down click Connect to a SharePoint Site…
5. In the Address: field type your SharePoint site
URL, in this example I will type my root site https://scuba3.atrackspace.com.
6. Click Connect.
7. When asked to authenticate, type your SharePoint
username and password.
8. Click Connect.
9. After a few moments, your SharePoint site will
be connected. On the left hand-side of the screen under SharePoint you will see
your SharePoint URL you entered.
That’s it! Test it out, if you update any
document from your SharePoint site on your Mac it will be updated once saved.
