ONLYOFFICE Projects for iOS - Overview

The Projects app for iOS allows you to manage projects stored in your ONLYOFFICE account on your mobile device. Using this app, you can view, create and edit projects, milestones, tasks, subtasks, manage your project team, assign responsible persons, access project documents, create discussions and leave comments.

First launch

The Projects app is available on the AppStore. After you've downloaded and installed the application on your mobile device, tap the ONLYOFFICE Projects icon to launch it.

Connecting to a portal

When you launch the Projects app for the first time, the Connection to cloud panel opens. To sign in to your portal:

  1. enter your existing portal address (https://portalname.onlyoffice.com) and tap the Continue button,

    Start screen

  2. enter your email address and password you use to access your account,
  3. tap the Sign in button.

Note: alternatively, you can specify the portal address and sign in to your portal using your Facebook or Google account, if you have previously connected one of these accounts to your profile on the portal.

To sign out from your account:

  1. tap the Navigation menu icon in the upper left corner,
  2. go to your current account tapping your name on the top of the screen, then tap Logout at the bottom of the screen and confirm this action.
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:

  1. tap the Create cloud link at the bottom of the Connection to cloud panel,
  2. fill in the registration form: create your Portal address (e.g. portalname.onlyoffice.com), enter your First name, Last name and Email address and tap the Continue button,

    Create web office

  3. enter and repeat a password, then tap the Create portal button.

The two-factor authentication is enabled by default when creating a new portal to ensure a high security level. You will be asked to specify the mobile phone number that an SMS message with the verification code will be sent to. Once the SMS is received and the verification code is entered, the Projects module of your portal will be opened and you will be able to start working. A confirmation link will be sent to the email address specified when creating the portal. Follow the link from the email message to confirm your email address.

Account management

If you have several ONLYOFFICE accounts (e.g., accounts created on two different portals) you can connect them to the Projects app to quickly and easily switch between all your existing accounts and access necessary projects. If you have already signed in to an ONLYOFFICE account, perform the following actions to connect another account:

  1. tap the Navigation menu icon in the upper left corner,
  2. go to your current account tapping your name on the top of the screen, then tap Logout and confirm this action,
  3. on the Accounts screen tap the Select another account link and connect another account as described in the Connecting to a portal section above.

Afterwards you will be able to swipe left or right the Accounts screen to see all the connected accounts and choose the necessary one.

To sign in to a certain account that you have previously connected, select the account at the Accounts screen and tap the Continue button. You will be logged in without the necessity to enter your login and password.

To disconnect a certain account, select the account at the Accounts screen, tap the Remove account icon in the upper right corner and confirm this action. You will be logged out from this account and it will be removed from the list (you will be able to connect it again later, if necessary).

Application sections

To quickly switch between the Projects app sections, tap the Navigation menu icon in the upper left corner, then tap the necessary item from the navigation menu.

Your Projects module contains the following sections:

  • Projects Projects is a section that contains all your projects;
  • Milestones Milestones is a section that contains all milestones related to your projects;
  • Tasks Tasks is a section that contains all tasks related to your projects;
  • Discussions Discussions is a section that contains discussions related to your projects;
  • Documents Documents is a section that contains files and folders corresponding to your projects.

Application settings

You can enable a passcode protection for your application. To do that:

  1. tap the Navigation menu icon in the upper left corner,
  2. tap the Settings option at the bottom of the screen,
  3. tap the Passcode Lock menu item,
  4. tap the Turn Passcode On option,
  5. specify your 4-digits passcode and confirm it.
