In addition to being able to view files offline in the OneDrive App, editing files while offline would make excellent use of the offline implementation and increase overall productivity.
The release notes for June 3 (https://insider.office.com/en-us/releasenotes/ios/version-2-38-200601) mention this feature:
"OneDrive: Edit files when you’re offline
Editing files while you’re offline just got easier. You can now edit Office files stored in OneDrive that are marked as available offline."
I have not been able to make this work. I am on the latest betas for OneDrive, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Has anyone been able to get this to work?

I should be able to add/remove pictures to albums and move files in folders when offline:
When I am on the plane and have a lot of time – I want to review my pictures and albums.
When I am hiking and taking pictures – I want to review and organize them while I have some rest or stop for the night.
Please add this functionality not only for editing, but also for uploading files and images within the OneDrive folders that are available on your phone while you are offline.
This feature will improve the productivity of OneDrive. As editing documents, moving pictures in folders.
Currently EDITING files while offline is not supported by OneDrive. See below link for official MS comments.
However, with mobile devices becoming very capable also for editing content, like the iPad Pro, we need this feature!
This feature is requested a LOT on these forums. Problem is that votes are scattered so not reaching 500 vote threshold for MS to have a look...
Yes please! We also use Dropbox Business and notice that they also don't yet offer this vital capability.
Does iOS / its API allow you (Microsoft/Dropbox/etc) the ability to make this work yet?
