HAP File Upload from iPad (possibly in wrong forum)
I have a problem that possibly shouldn't go in this forum but I can't find a HAP endusers' forum for this type of question.
We have recently moved to HAP (v8) after many years of using a rather insecure File Transfer system. So far, so good.
Apple have done a very effective job in convincing our Teaching Staff (read "the IT decision leaders") that no student or teacher should ever leave home without his/her iPad. As a result, from the beginning of next year, we will have around 1500 iPads in the school (We already have ~400).
For our purposes, the most important bit of HAP is the File Transfer capability. We have no LMS (one is coming soon) or Terminal Services (one of the other handy features of HAP) is far too expensive for us.
So teachers are expecting their students to
(a) download their documents to their iPads
(b) edit said documents in Office HD or whatever
(c) upload the updated file(s) from their iPads
And now the problem: When I try "upload" in HAP, the only folder that I can choose from is "Camera Roll". This folder is for photos and videos only. I can't browse to where the "modified" files (typically documents, powerpoints or spreadsheets) are stored.
Of course the iPad is not designed as a data storage device, nor is it designed for the purpose the teachers want to use it for... I have no trouble with HAP on PC or Mac running OSX
I've tried a number of file managers (eg FileApp) but to no avail
Ah, sorry to hear it doesn't let you upload any files, I think this is one of the limitations of iOS. I doubt I could find a way around this without making an app. If you have gone down the OIPP (one ipad per person) then you may find webdav a better solution for iOS.
