Store your files in Onedrive!

Oh, you want to share them? You should move them to Sharepoint!

Now you want project management? Move the files to Teams! No, you can't just add a Team to a Sharepoint site.

@drb Yes! My institution is doing the same. What surprised me was how readily apparent some of the usability problems are when using the services. “Has no one stepped back and forced them to get this cleaned up?” was an early impression! I also knew something was up when I made a Sway presentation for class and one of my students told me afterwards to “just not.”
