Provide an easy way to move files from OneDrive to SharePoint Online
Provide an easy way to move files from OneDrive to SharePoint Libraries. Show all Tenant Site Collections and their Document libraries where the user has write access. A cool extra would be the ability to move (and copy) files between SharePoint libraries. I guess a partner could build this, but I really think this should be a platform feature available to all standard Office 365 tentants. In my opinion these actions should be supported by the Office 365 'Files' (preview) API.
Copy is now available to 100% of users in production. Please try it out!

How do you MOVE a file...not copy?
Robin Freestun commented
It's very troubling to see that a Request "Provide an easy way to move files from OneDrive to SharePoint Online", raised in October 2014 - THREE YEARS AGO, has still not been implemented.
This is a MAJOR selling point for SharePoint, and I've had numerous people tell me to forget Microsoft and just go to Google. Tough decision for me - I've been an avid supporter of Microsoft since Windows 1, but am (Finally) losing patience. Does Microsoft really care about the real world business problems, like that mentioned here, or have they given up? SharePoint is a lovely LOOKING environment, but it has so many practical failings I'm embarrassed to promote it anymore.
BUMP... Still listed as BOOM IT's DONE, when BOOM IT'S NOT. Copy is not Move. Copy is the bane of the world, with people working on different versions of a document. I thought Office 365 was here to create collaboration, which means one copy of a document.
ly be nice to be able to attach a file directly from a SharePoint library into an email using outlook. We still cannot do this.
THIS IS NOT DONE!!!!!
Please see and vote for this idea which extends this further https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/17215769-onedrive-for-business-and-sharepoint-integration

This is not "DONE."
1) You cannot move. Only copy.
2) there is some size restriction. I am trying to move (or copy) a folder from my ODB to Sharepoint, and it keeps telling me I have to pick a smaller size. I had to drill down 4 folders before it worked, and that means I would have to copy dozens of times and keep track of what was done since it isn't moving anything.
How about a real move feature?
Roy Sharp commented
'Boom its done' is a little misleading - only copy is available so when will move be implemented too?

Exactly what Robert Shields said: we need to be able to completely remove content from a user's OneDrive and place it in a SharePoint library. With the copy feature as it currently is, I'm limited to copying files one at a time, and with a 50MB limit per file.
If I've got many folders and many gigabytes to move, I've got to hire a partner to move that content between my own storage systems. And that's exactly what I'm faced with right now.
Douglas, this is a great start but the idea needs to be extended to better support content management and integrity in organisations as part of an ECM Strategy as follows.....
Content should be able to be 'moved' from OneDrive to SharePoint so that duplicates are not created and the master content exists in one place only. Ideally, the 'Move to SharePoint' feature would provide an option to 'Leave a Link' in OneDrive to the newly created content in SharePoint.
In order to better support ad-hoc collaboration on content that has been imported into SharePoint and therefore its master version resides in SharePoint, an option in SharePoint to 'Checkout to OneDrive' should also be provided. This would allow customers to edit and contribute on content with the users empowered to restrict the audience for editing purposes as appropriate. This is especially important where ad-hoc collaboration of sensitive content is required and the SharePoint Team Sites have been configured using a formal governed security model which currently does not support ad-hoc permissions management well or easily for the average user.
Anyone attempting to edit the content in SharePoint once it has been checked out to OneDrive should be able to see that it has been checked out to a user in OneDrive and see who that user is. Site Admins should obviously be able to override the checkout as normal for instances where a user has left the organisation.
Back in the OneDrive world, when the ad-hoc collaboration exercise has been completed the content should be able to be checked in directly from OneDrive as the new version in SharePoint.
This approach would greatly empower business users to collaborate on content in a secure and flexible way, utilising the power and flexibility of OneDrive whilst still maintaining content integrity associated with the master source of truth for the content, i.e. in SharePoint.
so easy! Thanks. C
Please allow this for ALL sharepoint library types - NOT just document libraries!
Announcing simple and powerful file sharing and collaboration for Office 365
by Office 365 Team, on May 4, 2016 | 23 Comments | 286
I just watched the video you published 6 months ago. At this point, I can neither copy or move a file from ODFB to SPOnline.
We have stopped our deployment of Groups and have begun exploring alternatives.
Are there any plans to allow copying files from OneDrive to folders within document sets in SharePoint Online libraries?
There's nothing powerful about sharing in office 365. What's the difference between onedrive and sharepoint again? And why not combine it into 1...?
Guys you are making Google look way to good.
IMPROVE or go home

when looking at your 'one drive for business' file list, and click move, you should be able to move to a library in sharepoint online.
SharePoint is a collaborative work environment. In order to do this you need files to claborate on. For this you need seamless and easy file management. This was a major miss as teams use these as collaborative shared drives. The lack of infrastructure to drag and drop explorer view is completely missing the boat and not helpful for those that have been volun-told to migrate old server sites to online. Files are in onedrive but no clear way to share them with all those on the sharepoint.
The lack of standard "explorer" functionality is extremely frustrating. A very backward step for anyone but the most basic user. Brickbats.
