Managing files in network shares on iPad

Go to any file that you want to manage and tap the context menu for that file. You need to swipe left to see all the actions you can perform. You may not be able to perform all actions depending on your permission.

The contextual actions on files include:

  • Open in: Open the file in a third party app (can be prohibited by IT policy). You can choose to open files in third party apps depending on the MIME type of the file, and if you have an app capable of reading that MIME type. For example, use Adobe Reader to open PDF files. You may choose to use third party apps if the MIME type is not supported natively within the Syncplicity app or if you prefer using a certain third party app.
  • Offline: Sync your files to your device for offline access. See the Working with Offline files and folders article for more information on the Offline feature.
  • Rename: Renames a file.
  • Delete: Deletes the file permanently.

In addition, tapping the file opens it in the Syncplicity app. You can also open and edit Microsoft Office documents in the Syncplicity app as described in the Creating and editing Microsoft Office files article, and you can annotate PDF files as described in Annotating a PDF document.

NOTE: You can create and upload files as described in Managing folders in a repository.
