Cannot edit files when offline - mobile devices

Copper Contributor


Mobile (Android/iPhone/iPaD) – OneDrive 4 business – make folder available offline – sync data – go offline and test that data is stored locally – Good – this works - we are signed in to the apps and they show our account when opening a word/excel document - opened offline 


when we open any of the offline files – they open as read only and we are asked to save a copy – and can only save to local device – which is not allowed by policy. We also do not want to save to a different location - We want to be able to open the offline file, edit, and save in its cached OneDrive (offline enabled) folder  - and then sync once device is back online.


Any suggestions


Maybe this is by design – but we then need to figure out a workable solution.
