This article will demonstrate how to enable Auto Encryption for folders in OneDrive. 

Note: The end-user must have a valid Anchor account to use the Anchor features provided by our integration with SharePoint/OneDrive. Users can be added to the Anchor platform by simply adding them to a user role. If you add a user to a user role and they are not part of Anchor, they will then be added to the Anchor platform. Users can only be added if they belong to a valid email domain (which is maintained in the global policies on Anchor dashboard). Admins will have the ability to edit valid email domains.

To enable Auto Encryption for a folder in OneDrive:

Step 1: right-click the folder>Anchor>Add to Auto Encryption. Folders configured for auto encryption will automatically Anchor files added to them through actions on SharePoint and OneDrive apps.  

Please note, unAnchored files that were already present in this folder will remain unAnchored.

Step 2: To ensure all pre-existing documents are Anchored, open the folder>select all files>Anchor>Anchor my Data. 

See the image below as an example.
