Join Chad Chelius for an in-depth discussion in this video Organize files with the Acrobat mobile app, part of Acrobat DC: Using the Document Cloud Features.
- [Instructor] Once you start using Adobe Document Cloud, if you're like me, you'll end up uploading a lot of files right from your phone, tablet, or other device. Staying organized isn't just for when you're sitting at your desktop computer. We can do this using the mobile version of Acrobat as well. Let's take a look at the options that we have available. So, once again, here I am on my phone in the Adobe Reader mobile application and I want to show you how we can do the same thing on the mobile app that we can inside of Adobe Acrobat.
So, currently, I'm viewing my Document Cloud files and what I want to be able to do is make a couple of changes here. So, one of the things I can do is if I want to rename a file, what you want to do is tap the icon in the upper right corner where you see three dots. So, go ahead and tap on that and the first thing that you can do here is select a file or files that you want to modify. So, if I choose select from the list, you'll see that there's a little radio button that appears next to each file and folder.
So, for example, maybe I want to rename one of these files. So, in this case, I want to rename the Landon Hotels file. So, I'm going to tap that radio button to tell the mobile app that that's the file I want to rename, and then, at the very bottom, if you tap the icon in the middle, that will allow me to rename that file. So, I'm simply going to add manual to the end of the file name here, be a little bit more descriptive, and then, I'm going to tap the rename button to rename that file and in a few seconds, you'll see that that change has, in fact, been made.
Now, very similarly, if I wanted to create a folder, what I can do is tap those three icons in the upper right corner and, now, you'll see that there is an icon or an option for a new folder. So, I'm going to choose new folder and I have a feeling that in my research to investigate the Tesla that I want to buy, I might have a lot more files that I want to store in the Document Cloud. So, what I'm going to do is I'm just going to create a folder called Tesla Info and then I'm going to tap the create folder button and now you're going to see that it adds a new folder inside of my Document Cloud with the name that I had added.
Now, the next step is going to be moving a file into that folder. So, again, we're using the same technique here. If I tap the icon in the upper right, I can select a file that I want to move. So, I'm going to choose select and I'm going to select the Tesla Model S pdf file and then, down at the bottom, this time, I'm going to choose the icon on the left and if I tap that, it's going to ask me what I want to do and I'm going to choose move, and then, I can tell it where I want to move this to.
So, if i tap the Tesla Info folder and then I tap the move button, it's going to move that file into that directory, and if i tap Tesla Info, it'll open that directory or folder and it'll show me the file that's inside of there. Very similar as to when I'm using Adobe Acrobat. At the very top here, you can see that it shows me the path that I'm currently in. So, I'm currently in the Tesla Info folder within the Document Cloud directory, if you will, and if i tap the link that says Document Cloud, it'll go back and view the root directory of my Document Cloud folder.
Very similarly, if I want to delete a file, I can tap the three icons in the upper right, choose select, select the file or directory that I want to delete, and then I could tap the trashcan down at the bottom. I don't want to delete any files right now, so I'm just going to tap the cancel button in the upper right and that'll cancel that operation. So, as you can see, staying organized is pretty simple even when working on your mobile device.
