We are a group of people (50 people) that want to access documents (Word) from a server and download it to our phones (iphones and androids).

 

What we want:

Server of fitting kind (cloud? file server? anything...)

Able to download the files offline

Give premissions to users

Different level of admin

Ability to download to iPhone and android (third part app?)

 

If we choose a files server. That would probably be a home server that people can access. Would that slow down the download speed for the person where the server is established?

Yes tried that. The problem is you cant download the files to read offline in a good way. We have 2-3 thousand files.

I am able to read files offline very easily from my Box account.

I could be wrong but it seems google drive will do most of those things. It might take a little setting up to get the permissions correct. Not sure about the different levels of admin.


Hope this helps thumbup.gif
