Please extend cloud integration to all Office versions

Post by holoperson » Fri Mar 10, 2017 8:34 am

I've just installed Textmaker and Planmaker HD for Android on my new tablet, and the Dropbox/Google Drive integration is wonderful!
(I couldn't get Onedrive to work. I just got a white screen after signing in.)

Please extend this feature to Office for Windows and Office for Linux. (I use both on various devices.)

Currently on my Linux PC I have set up a synchronising Dropbox folder (ie, the conventional way of using Dropbox), but the built-in integration in HD is much more convenient.

Do you have plans for this?

cheers

At least in Windows you can install Google Drive (or any other major cloud service):
https://tools.google.com/dlpage/drive?hl=en

Afterward, it is accessible like a network drive and you can access it from every program via File=>Open or File=>Save.

By the same token, I have to say please don't!

I like having my files on devices I own. Convenience is great, but I prefer the knowledge that I am responsible for the files on my computer. All the big cloud providers have lost data in the past, and the end users have no comeback.

Me too. We should have a [please don't]-button on this kind of thread.

While anybody's self-inflicted mischief should not prevent nor advocate any new functionality which addresses only a limited number of users, the consequences are felt my many more people, afterwards.
