Seamless experience!

For anyone running Office on more than one device, you will enjoy the recently used and welcome back features which both provide a seamless experience!

Recently used files

If you are working on a file at work and wish to continue working on the same file from your phone, the recent tab in Office displays the file you have just been working on at the top of your phone by syncing it across devices, that is if the file/document is stored in OneDrive for SharePoint. You can also pin certain files or documents and keep them positioned at the top of your screen using Office for iPhone/iPad!

Pick up where you left off!

The welcome back pop up takes you back to the last PowerPoint or word document. Document stored in SharePoint or OneDrive which takes you directly back to the reading position you were working on last regardless of the device you were using.

Work everywhere

Office for iOS allows you to work on your files when offline. And any changes you make to the file will be automatically saved once the device is online! The green badge at the top indicates that the file is available for editing.

Collaboration—easy share

Click on the share icon (from the Open/Recent tab) to share any files stored to OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and Share Point!

If you have a file stored in your iOS device, you can share it by uploading it to a cloud location, follow these steps to find out how this is done:
