We have explained a handful of instances regarding the end user experience in the Multi-Geo environment, in the first part of this blog. Let’s continue learning about some more instances in this streak, by putting more light into your understanding about a OneDrive Multi-Geo Configuration.



Search center and search index are unique for each geolocation. Query is sent to all geolocation while searching, and the user is provided with a unified result after merging and ranking the returning results. Users are presented with results from all geolocations.


Sharing in Multi-Geo environment is smooth as it will not be affected by the geolocation. It makes it easier for a user to share with users from the same geolocation or tenant’s geolocation effectively. Users can find content from other geolocations in the Shared with Me view.

SharePoint Mobile Client

It is multi-geo aware and will show relevant content and results from all geolocations.

SharePoint Home

A user’s SharePoint Home will be hosted in the location as determined by their OneDrive for business location. Regardless of the geolocation, the SharePoint home will consist of all content relevant to the user.

User Profiles

In a multi-geo environment when you pick a user, you will be directed to the appropriate geolocation of the user. This happens because the user profile information is mastered in the user’s geolocation.

Teams Experience

In Teams, the @ mentions work with all users from all geolocations, and the OneDrive files and recently viewed files are shown irrespective of the user’s geolocation.
