We have just setup a new 365 environment and are moving data from existing file server shares to sharepoint / onedrive. We are a parent company that manages 5 subcompanies - with 5 to 10 users at each. On the previous server we had a data share, with folders for each company and appropriate security, and a shared folder for logos, graphics, and templates that were common across the group. Before we start moving data up to sharepoint I want to be sure what would be the best way to structure both from the users perspective and a management perspective. The choices I can see 1 - create separate sites for each company. 2 - Have the parent company and subsites 3 - Have the parent company and subfolders.
I was thinking of using onedrive for business to store graphics, logos and data that might be better outside of sharepoint - although I can see an overhead of maintenance if I want to give any specific permissions.
This is an opportunity to get things better organized, and I don't want to just dump the existing data into sharepoint, and I don't want to make things harder for staff.
