Microsoft Syntex: Combine Two or More PDF Files with Merge PDFs action in OneDrive for Android and for iOS

Microsoft Syntex users can soon combine PDF files into one PDF file with the Merge PDFs action in OneDrive for Android and iOS. The Merge PDFs action lets you quickly combine multiple PDF files into a new PDF file stored in SharePoint or OneDrive.

This post is associated with Microsoft Roadmap ID 117547, 117549

When this will happen:

Standard release for Android: We will begin rolling out in late-March and expect to complete rollout by mid-April.

Standard release for iOS: We will begin rolling out in late April and expect to complete rollout by late May.

How this will affect your organization:

Syntex users won’t have to worry about organizing, sharing or sending multiple PDF files. Integrating multiple PDFs into a large PDF file lets users better organize and send information they want to view or share with others.

To combine multiple PDF files in Syntex using the Merge PDFs action:

  1. Open a PDF file you want to combine in OneDrive for Android or iOS.
  2. At the bottom of the screen, tap the horizontal bar or drag the bottom menu up to expand the new menu.
  3. Under File actions, select Merge PDFs.
  4. Choose the PDF file(s) you want to combine with.
  5. Users can wipe up the menu and organize the files order they want in the merged PDF and tap Merge PDFs.
  6. Select a location to save the merged PDF.
  7. After selection, Your PDFs will turn into merging process.
  8. After the new PDF is done processing, your new file will be opened directly.

Note: Some users may see this feature before others within your organization. PDF Merge is available only for Microsoft Syntex licensed users; users without a Syntex license will not see the feature. We will bring the capability to other clients, including OneDrive, SharePoint and Syntex browsers soon.
