The Documents app for iOS allows you to access the files stored in your ONLYOFFICE account on your mobile device, view and edit existing text documents and spreadsheets, create new ones and organize them as well as connect third-party cloud storages. You can edit documents collaboratively with other portal users or work on your files offline.
The application runs under iOS 9.3 or higher. Document editing capabilities are available on iPad Air, iPhone 5 and later device models. On older device models, documents will open in the viewing mode only.
The Documents app is available on the AppStore. After you've downloaded and installed the application on your mobile device, tap the
icon to launch it.
Working with files in offline mode
The On Device section opens by default. It allows you to create and edit new documents and spreadsheets in offline mode without internet connection. You can create folders to organize your local files, move the files between these folders, create a copy of a file, rename or delete it.
It's also possible to edit the files previously downloaded from your portal. If necessary, you will be able to upload any of your local files to your portal later, when internet connection is established.
Connecting to a portal
If you wish to work on the files stored on your portal in online mode, tap the application logo in the upper left corner. A new screen will open where you will be prompted to connect to your existing portal or create a new one.
Enter your existing portal address (portalname.onlyoffice.com), email address and password you use to access your portal, then tap the Login button. To access your Personal account (previously created at personal.onlyoffice.com), tap the Personal link, enter your email address and password, then tap the Login button.
Creating a new portal
If you do not have an ONLYOFFICE account, you can easily create a new portal right from the mobile application when it is launched:
- tap the Create portal link at the bottom of screen,
- fill in the registration form: enter your First Name, Last Name, Email Address, create Your Account Name and tap Continue,
- enter and confirm a password, then tap the Create portal button.
Right after that the My Documents section of your portal will be opened and you will be able to start working.
To sign out from your account, tap your profile photo in the upper left corner and select the Logout option in the window that opens.
Tap icons at the left panel to switch between the Documents sections.
