What's the easiest way to use my outlook account on my windows Nokia lumia 925 so I can type on my phone and it saves to a document on my OneDrive? How do I create a new document on my phone with either Office or OneDrive?

  • You may also want to check out OneNote for this purpose. I like it for quick notes, and it has its own web interface that I find more useful for seeing, categorizing, and moving between my notes. – Tyler James Young Feb 27 '15 at 15:55
  • I do use OneNote a ton but I want to be able to work on a paper when I don't have a computer. @TylerJamesYoung – Jeff Feb 27 '15 at 23:26

Office on Windows Phone will be automatically connected to the OneDrive that belongs to your primary Microsft Account (the same one you use for store downloads).

To change where a document should be saved simply create a new document -> then open the app bar at the bottom -> select "save to..." and choose phone or OneDrive. If you choose to store the file in the cloud, it will be automatically synced to your phone when you open it.

  • Can this new document be created from the phone? If so would it be created from Office? I'm just a little new to this and confused thanks – Jeff Feb 24 '15 at 3:17

    @Jeff it is as simple as going into the "Office" app on your phone, and tapping the + button to create the new document, which you can then happily edit. – Rowland Shaw Feb 24 '15 at 8:53
