Read, annotate, sign, ... PDF's from IBM environments, with PDF Expert and File Jockey Kim van den Berg posted this on February, 2014 According to Readdle, PDF Expert is a superb PDF Viewer and Editor and an indispensable File Manager. Users can read, annotate, sign, fill out PDFs with ease and joy. Great benefit, the app is WebDAV enabled, which made us decide to test the app with File Jockey. Our conclusion: PDF Expert is easier to use but has less possibilities, in comparison with Goodreader. In this blog article we describe how to setup PDF Expert to interact with the files in IBM Greenhouse Connections. If you do not have a free IBM Greenhouse account, you can create one, or you have the following options: 1. Download the File Jockey software and install in on your own IBM Lotus Domino, IBM WebSphere or Tomcat server (the download package contains the guides how to do the installations) 2. Let us connect your IBM Connections or IBM Lotus Quickr environment with our File Jockey Cloud server, in two days we will email you your own File Jockey URL, please visit the File Jockey Cloud sign up page 3. If you have an IBM SmartCloud account please visit this dedicated File Jockey for IBM Smartcloud page on how to use File Jockey with IBM SmartCloud. Connect IBM Greenhouse with PDF Expert Open or install PDF Expert on your iPad. In this manual we will use the iPad, but of course the app is also applicable for use with the iPhone. The PDF Expert app opens default in Documents Marten Vosmer: +31 (6) 22473076 | email@example.com | http://www.file-jockey.com
Select Network and choose WebDAV Fill in the IBM Greenhouse URL and your own login. In this example we use our free File Jockey server for IBM Greenhouse, the associated URL: https://greenc.lialis.com (only applicable for use in apps) and we use our own IBM Greenhouse login. Click Save in the upper right corner. Marten Vosmer: +31 (6) 22473076 | firstname.lastname@example.org | http://www.file-jockey.com
The connection with IBM Greenhouse is visible under Accounts and the connection is established immediately. The folders in IBM Greenhouse are presented. The Sync option has become visible in the upper right corner. So you can now decide which part of IBM Greenhouse you want to synchronize with PDF Expert over File Jockey. The entire environment, a few communities or just some files. It is up to you. Click Communities to select the Communities you are member of or follow. In this example we will sync the complete File Jockey community. So select File Jockey and press the Sync option in the upper right corner. Marten Vosmer: +31 (6) 22473076 | email@example.com | http://www.file-jockey.com
The File Jockey community is opened. Press Sync to synchronize the complete File Jockey community to PDF Expert. Click 'Sync This Folder' Marten Vosmer: +31 (6) 22473076 | firstname.lastname@example.org | http://www.file-jockey.com
The Folder is added to Documents. Go to Documents. The File Jockey folder is available; the two arrows on the folder present the ongoing synchronization. When the synchronization is ready, you can start editing documents or synchronize other communities or My Files. You can even decide to create another WebDAV connection to for example IBM Greenhouse Quickr (https://greenq.lialis.com) and synchronize Quickr places as well.

Editing documents with PDF Expert You can now edit and modify documents with PDF Expert. The following file types are supported: Open the IBM Greenhouse connection and select a document you want to edit, it will turn blue. You can now modify the document completely; highlight, strike out, add a signature, draw with your finger, make your notes, etc. Marten Vosmer: +31 (6) 22473076 | firstname.lastname@example.org | http://www.file-jockey.com
When are ready editing the document you just go back to the dashboard of PDF Expert and your changes are saved and automatically synchronized with the IBM Greenhouse environment, during the next sync. The cloud icon beside the document indicates that the document is not yet synchronized with IBM Greenhouse. The document will automatically be synchronized in an instance (according to your Sync Settings). If you don't want to wait for this to happen, you can select Network and click Sync in the upper right corner. Marten Vosmer: +31 (6) 22473076 | email@example.com | http://www.file-jockey.com
PDF Expert settings With PDF Expert settings (push the gear button in the left upper corner) you can determine where files are downloaded to, if the data is protected or how synchronization is arranged. Marten Vosmer: +31 (6) 22473076 | firstname.lastname@example.org | http://www.file-jockey.com
