Manually Adding MyWorkDrive as Storage in iOS (Detailed)

You are here:
< Back

Microsoft frequently updates the mobile office applications, so the screen grabs and locations may vary over time.  Of note, they have renamed “places” to “storage” on mobile applications – so where we refer to adding a “place”, it now appears as “storage” – all the other steps are the same.


This is not a required step.  The first time you open an office document, you will be stepped through this process.   However you may want/need to do it manually or may want to be familiar with the steps prior to going through it.

Versions of MyWorkDrive prior to 5.4.3 do not support using SSO for Places/Storage connections, so make sure you have updated to the latest version of MyWorkDrive if you are using SSO logins.  If you have an earlier version of MyWorkDrive, it supports using the traditional user/pass login.  There is an option to permit User/Pass logins on Mobile (while continuing to use SSO for client logins) to facilitate document editing in MyWorkDrive admin settings.


Open One of the Office Applications on your iOS device, in this case we opened Word.

Select the folder icon to open a file.


From the window which opens, select Add storage Account (formerly Add a place).</
