Ios App work on offline files (excel, word, PowerPoint, pdf)

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi,

 

I have a Dropbox Business account. I can make certain folders accessible offline on my IPad.

However, once offline, I cannot work on them using the respective Excel, PowerPoint etc.. app.

I have to « copy » it onto the app and then save on my iPad. The result means that i have 2 different files and I have to manually upload the new one to Dropbox once i am online.

Can the Dropbox app work more like the files app. I.e. once a file is offline, you can open it in other app to edit (without having to export it as a new version), once closed, it will save directly as the same updated files in iCloud Drive and upload once connected to the internet.

Kind regards,
