Hope you
are finding this series on quick tips on how to use key features of Oracle
Documents Cloud Service
mobile app to drive effective mobile collaboration
helpful. In my first post, we covered steps to do mobile editing on files.
this post, we are covering the latest updates in Oracle Documents Cloud Service
(Oracle Documents) that make it super simple to upload all the great assets you
create or have on your mobile devices directly into Oracle Documents.

Need a way to get
files, photos, or videos stored within Oracle Documents while on the move?
Oracle Documents Cloud Service’s mobile app has been enhanced to further simplify
file uploads.

  1. If you
    haven’t already, start off by installing Oracle Documents mobile app on your
    iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Log on to Oracle Documents Cloud Service and
    you’re ready to go - use it anywhere, anytime and from any of your mobile
    devices. It’s designed to be intuitive, familiar to your mobile habits - swipe
    to navigate and tap to open folders and files. The app guides you through what
    to do.

  2. Mobile
    devices make it super easy to take pictures and record videos so it makes sense
    to upload them to Oracle Documents directly from your mobile device as well.
    You can open an app like the Photos app and initiate the upload right from

  3. For
    example, you can share an entire moment with Oracle Documents. Find the moment
    you need to upload and simply tap on “Share”, and then select “Share this
    moment”. You can then select “Oracle Documents” from the list of apps. You can
    pick the account and folder where you wish to store the photos, even update filenames
    or provide file descriptions, then tap “Upload” and they all get uploaded in
    one go.

  4. You can
    initiate a similar flow from within Oracle Documents. Find the folder where you
    want to store your assets and tap on “+” and choose Upload “Media” or “Files”.
    From here, you can gather a set of files to upload:
    Tap on
    the camera icon to take a picture or to select photos to upload
    Tap on
    the microphone icon to record a voice note
    Tap on
    the file upload icon to select files from other 3rd party applications

  5. Once
    you have your list of files you can update file names or provide file
    descriptions as needed and when you are ready tap on “Add” and they all get
    uploaded into your folder.

  6. If you
    are an Android user, the same Upload flows are available. You can, for example,
    initiate photo uploads right from within Google Photos
