My Files is your place to access, edit, and store ALL of your files and folders located on your school network and cloud drives from any device.
If an admin has allowed it, you will also have the ability to connect your cloud storage applications you already use such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Office365, OneDrive, and Box.com. You will be able to see all of your files and documents that you work on at school. You can view, edit, and save these files, from ANY device, instantaneously.

Clicking on the star icon above the ClassLink Drive will take you to the Favorites list, which includes every favorite file across all linked services.
