Add SkyDrive Accounts to Office Mobile

Learn how to add a SkyDrive account in Office Mobile.


Product/Version: Microsoft Office Mobile

We already showed you how you can navigate within a PowerPoint presentation within Office Mobile for iOS – now let us explore how you can open and save presentations saved in your SkyDrive account.

When you sign in using your Office 365 account credentials, you immediately get access to all the files stored on the cloud for that particular Office 365 account. However, you may have a different SkyDrive account too where you share or store your PowerPoint files. To access any of these files, you need to add what Office Mobile calls a “place”. A place is allocation, typically another SkyDrive account that Office Mobile can connect to.

Note: If you have a Microsoft account (Hotmail, Xbox, Outlook, Zune, Live, etc.) – then you already have a SkyDrive account.

Follow these steps to add a SkyDrive account to your Office Mobile:

  1. Within Office Mobile, click the Open tab, highlighted in blue within Figure 1, below.

  2. You will see your existing Office 365 account already displayed here – and you can click this option to navigate any existing files. However since we want to add a SkyDrive account now, click the Add a Place option, highlighted in red within Figure 1, above.

  3. This opens up the Add a Place screen, shown in Figure 2, below. You can add SkyDrive, Office 365 SharePoint, and SharePoint accounts. For now, click the SkyDrive option, highlighted in red within Figure 2, below.

  4. You will see a Connecting screen, as shown in Figure 3, below.

  5. You next see a Sign in screen, as shown in Figure 4. Type in your Microsoft account username and password – and then click the blue Sign in button.

  6. You will next see your SkyDrive account added to your Places list, as shown in Figure 5, below.

  7. You can similarly add multiple places – you won't have to log in every time since Office Mobile will save the credentials. To remove a place, swipe a place name from right to left so that you see the Remove button shown in Figure 6, below. Tap this button to remove a place.

All listed places work like folders on your computer – you can even open a presentation from one place and save it to another. For any of this to work, you need to be connected online all the time.
