I have an Office 365 E3 account and a brand new Windows 10 phone (Lumia 930). Reset the phone to factory settings, reinstalled and added the O365 account. It does appear in OneDrive and I can view the contents. However, I can not enable the camera upload - the slider is greyed out in the off-position. From that screen I can go into account settings and see my O365 account.

Is there some kind of black magic required to upload my camera's pictures to the O365 Onedrive?


I opened an incident with Microsoft and got this nice and friendly reply:

Wie Sie auch selber gesehen haben, funktioniert diese Option nur mit privaten OneDrive Konten. Das momentan ist eine Einschränkung der mobilen Betriebssystem. Sie könnten Ihre Meinung dafür unter der folgenden Webseite äußern: https://office365.uservoice.com


As you have noticed yourself, this option is only available with private OneDrive accounts. This is currently a limitation of the mobile operating system. You can give your optionion to this on the following website: https://office365.uservoice.com


I have found a solution that is free, uses Microsoft components and no third party components or plugins. It's a process to configure your Office 365 account to reach into your OneDrive and copy the files over. Full steps and screenshots are here
