Sharing Documents with Other Apps

If an iOS app supports document sharing, that app will be able to access, manipulate, and share the contents of files directly within an InterConneX sharespace. This guide explains how to set up document sharing in InterConneX. It will also show how to open a document that resides in a sharespace and edit it within Pages.

  1. When creating or editing a sharespace, you'll see a "Share with other Apps" setting on the final sharespace summary window. Turn this ON.
