Groups, Workspaces and Onedrive

Is there some very real benefit to linking the “new experience” Workspace with a shared Groups OneDrive?  Not clear from the Microsoft documentation.   It does not seem to behave in any way differently from simply "Get Data => File" and pointing to a Group Onedrive created and associated with an Old-School Workspace when the group is created...

Re: Groups, Workspaces and Onedrive

Hi @woofy ,


Could you please kindly share which document makes you confused?I'd like to explain it for you.  Do you mean you want to know the difference between classic workspace and New app workspace?

When connecting to onedrive/sharepoint for files, it's identical. but when the workspace created, classic workspace create an O365 group by default , which would mix users if there too many O365 group exist, and classic workspace can't add groups as roles. 

For New app workspace, it won't create the O365 group in the backgroup, and it's able to add user group as roles.
