Amazon WorkDocs iOS files integration

Amazon WorkDocs is a secure, fully managed, content creation, file collaboration and management service, with an extensible SDK, that runs on AWS. Amazon WorkDocs makes it easy for you to share your files anytime anywhere, and we have now made it even easier to manage files on your iOS device.

You can now view and edit files stored in Amazon WorkDocs using the Files app in iOS 11. Much like macOS Finder, the Files app gives you an easy way to browse, open, edit, move, rename, upload, create folders, share, and download files stored in WorkDocs using your iOS device. Files can be on your iOS device, or in the AWS cloud in Amazon WorkDocs. With Amazon WorkDocs iOS files integration, you can add files stored in Amazon WorkDocs to the Files app and access them from a single location on all of your iOS devices. You can also edit files from the Files app directly in an associated application and changes will automatically be saved in Amazon WorkDocs. The new Files app file management experience makes it easy for customers to access their content in Amazon WorkDocs from any iOS device.

You need to install and log into the Amazon WorkDocs iOS application on your device for iOS files integration to work.

To get started, in the Files app in your iOS device Tap Locations and Edit. Slide to turn on WorkDocs. Tap Done.



Tap WorkDocs and browse your files in the Files app.


If Office for iOS is installed on the iOS device, users can tap to open Microsoft Office files in the Office application. Changes made to the file is saved directly to WorkDocs.

The Files app on iPhone and iPad makes it easy for you to access content from your device along with all your cloud-based file services, including WorkDocs in one place. With the WorkDocs integration iOS customers can now easily access their files in WorkDocs from any iOS device.
