Hey there @atn2860
 
Currently, there isn’t such an option. In general, the mobile app doesn’t store your files locally on your mobile device because we want to be mindful of resource constraints mobile devices face such as device storage. This also means that your files don’t sync as they would through the desktop app
 
Let me know if you have any other questions!
