Office 365 - Saving to OneDrive on Mac OS X

How to sign into Office 2016 on Mac OS X to enable saving to OneDrive

1a) If you have recently upgraded to Office 2016 from Self Service or have a new computer, you may see this screen below when you first launch Word, Excel, or Powerpoint. 

1b) If you have already been using Office 2016 on your mac, the above screen may not show. After launching one of the applications, click on the Sign In button. Then type in your email address and hit next.

3) You will be redirected to a UWL branded sign in page, go ahead and type in the password and click Sign In. 

4) You will be brought back to the start page but your initials will appear where the sign in button was. If you go to "Open" you will now see OneDrive and Sharepoint listed as options to open documents from. 

5) When saving a document, the default save location will now be OneDrive. You still have the ability to save locally to your Mac or a network drive but selecting the "On My Mac" option.

6) You will see the familiar save dialog box but you still maintain the option to save back to the OneDrive by clicking on "Online Locations".
