Once you add a place such as your SkyDrive account to the Open tab within Office Mobile for iPhone, you can normally open your files off your SkyDrive account as easily as you would open any local file – but there’s a caveat – you need to be connected online all the time for this to work.
Follow these steps to open new and recent files in Office Mobile for iPhone:
- Assuming you are
signed in via your Office 365 account, click the Open tab to see
a list of places available to you, as shown in Figure 1, below. Select a place from the list to sign in.

- If you haven’t signed into this place from your device for a
long time, you may be asked to provide login credentials again. You'll then see
your folders and files as shown in Figure 2, below. Thereafter, browse folders
and and tap a file to select.
