Is it possible to store Word docs in iCloud?

 Is it possible to store Word docs in iCloud or is it only for syncing with IOS devices?

 

Apologies if this is a no brainer.

HI @stephenskok

 

Short answer: sort of

 

iCloud is setup with a stronger focus on iOS and MacOS synching. It doesn't have the flexibility of, for example Dropbox, for just storing any of your files.

 

For RMIT use, I'd recommend using Google Drive for a few reasons.

 

1. Much, much more storage space

2. You can actually work on your Word docs online using Google's own Doc editor

3. Google Drive is fully supported by your super-friendly and helpful ITS department!
