Remove function that open in office applications when offline as it is not possible. (iOS)
One way to work with office files like excel, word etc on iOS is to choose open in another app and then save it locally for editing. Another option is to open the file in the application before you loose the connection, but that just introduces a whole lot of other problems when the office application crashes and you risk loosing your work.
When selecting an offline-available office-file while offline, it opens the appropriate office application. The office application then tells me that I have to be online to open it, even just to view. This is confusing and causes a lot of frustration.
I suggest removing the function to automatically open the office-applications until there is a way to properly handle offline editing and just keep the open in other app until that time.
Update: I believe some issues may be caused by one of the computers that have had problems syncing to the device (never ending updating files) and it seems that un-linking the computer may help. Maybe a sync-error between one pc and the servers causes a serverside version to be constantly changing or something? could upload center play a part? After some more testing, i found that if I open an excel file before losing connection, the file will be truly available in offline mode as normal. If this has not been opened, I must open it by "open in another app" and choose excel to open.
