As SEAS migrates from on-premises Sharepoint to Sharepoint online, we have found that the drive mapping experience is different than what we are used to. Please follow these steps to map a drive to SharePoint O365.

Step 1: Map the site as a network drive

  1. Browse to the site you would like to map: https://hu.sharepoint.com/sites/seas/SITENAME   ***Use Internet Explorer ONLY, otherwise you will receive a permissions error when trying to map the drive***
  2. At the login page, before you do anything, click on the 'keep me signed in'.  Enter your email@seas.harvard.edu and hit TAB.
  3. You will automatically be redirected to Harvard'e O365 login page

                                     will redirect to    

  4. Once you are logged in, click Start and My Computer.
  5. In the top of the box click on Map Network Drive.
  6. The Map Network Drive wizard will ask you what you wish to map.
    1. Enter https://hu.sharepoint.com/sites/seas/YOURSITE (where YOURSITE is the name of your site), and click Finish.
      1. An example is https://hu.sharepoint.com/sites/seas/administration for the SEAS Dean's Administration Sharepoint Site.
    2. Please make sure you check the Reconnect at Logon check box, and click FINISH.

                                                                                        

  7. Your site should open up in a window.  Your site has been mapped!



                                                                                                        

  8. Sharepoint Online has a timeout for when you must enter your credentials again.  This timeout is usually about a day of inactivity.
    1. A Enter Network Password box will come up if you click on the mapped drive after your credentials time out.  
    2. Enter your O365 logon credentials, click the Remember my credentials, and click OK.
      1. This will usually your email@seas.harvard.edu and your Icemail password

                                                                                            

  9. Your mapped drive will now open again
