3.1. How to connect to web storage

You can connect to Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, OneDrive, Office 365 SharePoint, Yandex.Disk, Windows SMB and any other storage which supports the WebDAV/FTP/SFTP protocol connection in the Documents 7 app.

Note: if you can not find the storage of your choice among available options, please check its manual. If the storage supports WebDAV/FTP/ SFTP/SMB protocols, you can configure the connection according to the manual and access it in Documents with the supported protocol.
