FAQs

What happens if I delete files on OneDrive that have already been streamed to Needl.ai?

Needl.ai only offers a one-way data stream. This means that data streamed into Needl.ai from another app or source will stay independent of the source, i.e., deleting files on OneDrive after they have been streamed to Needl.ai will not affect your data on Needl.ai.

Needl.ai currently offers read-and-search only functionality. This means that you can stream and search data from OneDrive on Needl.ai but you will not be able to edit any data. However, you can click on the OneDrive icon and be redirected to that specific file in your OneDrive account.

Can I choose specific OneDrive files or folders to link with Needl.ai?

At the moment, we sync all files from a particular account. We are working on enabling selection from specific folders and will soon roll out this feature.

Unable to connect your OneDrive with you email account?

If you are already logged in with your Outlook email account (abc@outlook.com) in Outlook, your OneDrive integration will be with the same outlook account (abc@outlook.com) in needl.ai.

If you want to connect your One Drive with another email account (for example - abc@gmail.com) you will first have to log out of your outlook account (abc@gmail.com) from your browser.
