Over the years, it’s become very evident that the number of active users of Microsoft SharePoint and OneDrive has increased significantly. In 2020, it was announced that there were over 200 million monthly active users and counting. While SharePoint has played a major role in creating dynamic sites for different departments, OneDrive has been a platform for storage and collaboration.
