I need to set the default storage location for Office 365 apps on iOS & Android devices with Intune. A client wants to set the default storage/save as location for Office ProPlus apps, by policy. I cannot find a way to do this in configuration profiles in Intune Configuration Profiles for iOS/Android I have discovered this ability for Windows 10 in Config Profiles/Templates/ Administrative Templates / Configuration Settings/ Under "user configuration"

    For Android/iOS with respect to O365 apps, check out App Protection policy, you get option to at least restrict user to store documents only to OneDrive for business or SharePoint online and avoid them to save to device locally or save to another personal cloud storage.

    @Kevin Vanover , Research and didn't find the setting in Intune. Then I go to check on my Phone, I find there's no setting like the one on windows "Default local file location" exist on office app on iOS or Android. For our issue, I think we can consider to firstly feedbackk and request to add this setting to office app on iOS and Android on office related uservoice. Here are two for the reference:
    https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/
    https://outlook.uservoice.com/

    Thanks for the understanding and have a nice day!

    This setting is currently unavailable. I would suggest getting in touch with M365 support and see if they can put in a feature request for you? To set expectations: Feature requests maybe accepted/rejected based on Business case and if accepted, may take months to be delivered.
