    I need a new portable computer for work (to supplement my work issues desktop). For better or worse (most worse), we've converted to sharepoint. This maybe way to premature, but any feedback on how the new File app plays Sharepoint and the other Microsoft doc storage systems?

    It's currently not integrated with any 3rd party systems. I'm guessing either those apps have to do something to integrate with Files they're not doing today or Apple simply haven't done that integration yet.

    Sharepoint storage today is currently integrated with iOS via OneDrive for Business, Microsoft Teams, and Sharepoint apps. The first two I use regularly and work well, the latter I haven't used as we have other systems for intranet and sharing type activities.

    ----- Irrelevant opinion you didn't ask for -------
    I expect Microsoft will do a good, perhaps even great, job integrating with the new functionality in iOS11. In my opinion the Office apps and others around it are the best productivity apps on iPad, and to a lesser extent iPhone, by quite some margin. Windows, for me, no thanks but I thoroughly appreciate the fact that I can open Office on the web, iOS, Android, Windows and Mac and have a very similar experience across them all.

    Thanks for the input. And what you said about Microsoft products was going to be my next question!

    7 out of the 13 apps I've pinned on the dock for the iOS 11 dev beta are Microsoft ones I use regularly. They really are 1st class and they are very actively updated and improved.
