Android App: How to create a text file

android
help

#1

I want to create a text file in the owncloud android app.

Up to now I only found this way, which I think is quite complicated:

  • Create a text file with an app like Jota Text Editor.
  • Save the file somewhere in the directory tree of the device
  • open owncloud app
  • Upload the file.

Is there no easier way?

Right now there is no action to create an empty file in the account from the ownCloud Android app.

But maybe you find this workflow easier:

  1. Create a text file with Jota Text Editor
  2. Save the file somewhere in the directory tree of the device
  3. Still in Jota Text Editor, tap on the three-dots menu; then File > Share as file
  4. Select 'ownCloud' in the list of apps to upload the file

This way you will avoid searching the file again in the file tree when you upload it.

Hope that helps.
