Pages for iOS (iPhone, iPod touch): Transfer documents with a WebDAV server

Transfer documents with a WebDAV server
Use a WebDAV server to store Pages documents

You can transfer documents in various formats between a WebDAV server and your iOS device.

Pages doesn’t import rich text format (RTF) file types. Convert RTF files to another supported file type before importing them into Pages. Before you can transfer files using a WebDAV server, you must first set up the server to be accessible in Pages on an iOS device.

Copy files between a WebDAV server and an iOS device

  1. Open Pages on your device.

  2. In the document manager (with no document open), tap Create document button in the toolbar.

  3. Tap Copy from WebDAV, then type the server address (web address or URL).

  4. Enter your user name and password.

  5. Tap Sign In.

    After you sign in to a WebDAV server, you can copy files to or from the server without signing in again. You remain signed in to the server until you tap Sign Out.

  6. Do one of the following:

    • Copy a document from the server: Tap Create document button in the document manager toolbar, then tap Copy from WebDAV. Locate the file on the server, then tap it. When the transfer is complete, the document appears in the document manager.

    • Copy a document to the server: Tap Share menu button in the document manager toolbar, tap Send a Copy, then tap the document you want to transfer. Tap a format for the document, then tap WebDAV. Tap where you want to send the document, then tap Copy.
