The Places Screen

Windows Phone 8 devices enable you to save Microsoft Office documents in a variety of locations. In fact, the Office hub contains a Places page that you can use to access documents stored in various locations. These locations are available:


Phone: If you tap the Phone option, Windows takes you to the Documents page, which shows a list of the Office documents stored on your phone. You can tap on a document to open it.

Email: When you tap Email, Windows Phone 8 displays a list of Office documents that have been recently opened as email attachments. When you open an email attachment, that attachment remains open in the background. As such, tapping email gives you a list of any Office documents that were opened as email attachments, since the last time the phone was rebooted. You can tap on a document to view it.

SkyDrive: If you tap the SkyDrive option on the Locations page, Windows displays the contents of your SkyDrive. By default, this includes a Documents folder and a Shared folder.


Office 365: Windows Phone 8 is also designed so that you can access documents stored within Office 365 SharePoint. This is primarily something that you would only do if you were using your phone in a corporate environment in which Microsoft Office documents were stored in a SharePoint document library.

If you have not yet connected your phone to Office 365, the Office 365 option is listed as Office 365. Tapping the Office 365 option displays a screen stating that your phone must be set up to connect to Office 365. Tapping the corresponding Set Up button takes you to the Email+Accounts screen. 


After the Windows Phone 8 device connects to Office 365, the Office 365 option on the Places screen disappears and is replaced by the words Team Site. Tapping Team Site takes you to your SharePoint team site. You can open a document within the team site by simply tapping the folder that contains the document and then tapping the document.
