How do I use Office Apps for iPad?

It's actually really easy! Office iPad apps (Word, PowerPoints, Excel) are all simplified versions of their desktop counterparts; if you have any experience with Office programs, you will be able to figure out Office for iPad.


When you open an Office for iPad app, you will start in a window with many templates for what you want to create. Just select a template and start working on your file!

You can also open a saved file that you've already been working on (under the Open menu). You have a choice of opening it from your iPad (if saved on it) or adding other locations such OneDrive for Business or a personal OneDrive to receive, edit files from, and save to. A reminder: all students have 1TB of storage space they can utilize from their email accounts with OneDrive for Business!


To connect your OneDrive for Business account, just select + Add a Place and then select OneDrive for Business. You will be asked to sign into your university email, so input your full email and password and you should be successful!
