Version 6.3.5 of the Egnyte mobile app for iOS integrates seamlessly with Microsoft’s Office apps. You can now open and edit files from your Egnyte app directly using Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. We’ve also improved the flow for connecting to your Egnyte account from within the Office mobile apps.
Open Office Apps from Egnyte
When viewing an Office document in Egnyte’s iOS app, you can now open it in directly in the appropriate Office app (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint). Just tap the “open-in” button.
Selecting an Office app will open the document directly in that app. Any changes you make to the file will automatically be saved back into Egnyte.
Note that Microsoft requires a paid Office 365 subscription to edit files in their Office mobile apps; however, you can view files in read-only mode without a paid subscription.
Connect to Egnyte from Office Mobile Apps
Connecting to your Egnyte account from Microsoft’s Office mobile apps is now easier than ever. Just click the button to “Add a place”, and you’ll see Egnyte listed among the options.
Enter your account information (Egnyte domain, username, and password) to proceed, and then select the option to allow Office to access your Egnyte account.
Once this is done, you’ll be able to browse, access, and edit your Egnyte files directly from the Office apps.
