iOS app and syncronizing files


Just a comment about the iOS app.

I deployed Nextcloud at a small business. We’d like to be able to share and edit an Excel spreadsheet. While Nextcloud is available through the File app, the spreadsheet files do not sync changes back to Nextcloud. I do not know if this is a Nextcloud limitation, Microsoft limitation, or iOS limitation.

Present workflow on iOS

  1. Open Excel
  2. Tap … More
  3. Tap Nextcloud
  4. Open File
  5. Make Changes

There is no subsequent upload to the Nextcloud servers. I would expect it to work more like Onedrive, where when changes are made, they get pushed up and down right away.
