Adding A Script From iCloud

Sometimes, scripts are so large that they can’t be sent to Rehearsal® Pro via email.

This is usually due to them being scanned in at too high a quality level than required, resulting in very large file sizes. Users then resort to using a cloud service, like iCloud, to upload the script and send a link to the file.

Simply sending a link to a file you have stored (or have been given access to) in iCloud won’t be visible to our servers. Don’t send an email to your script+username address with a iCloud link – it won’t work.

You either need to attach the actual PDF of the script, or, if the script is too large to attach, follow the appropriate step-by-step directions below for adding the script from iCloud (there are two ways files can be shared, so pay attention to which is your case).

Before you can use iCloud, you have to go to Settings >> iCloud >> Show on Home Screen and turn that on.

If you’re using iCloud to get a script you have uploaded to iCloud, do this:

  1. Using the iCloud Drive app, upload your script and view it (or view a script you’ve been given access to) on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on the Sharing icon on the title bar that looks like a square with an arrow pointing out of it.
  3. Tap on the icon that’s labeled Copy to Rehearsal® Pro
  4. Go to the Add New Script area in Rehearsal® Pro and you’ll see the script there.

If someone has sent you a link in an email to an iCloud-based script, do this:

  1. Use the Mail app (not any other app like Gmail) to see the message containing the link, on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Clicking on the link will either open it in the iCloud Drive app, and you can follow the instructions above, OR
  3. It may open in Safari, but DON’T tap the “share” button (square with up arrow) on the bottom.
  4. Instead, tap on the script and a top menu will appear for a few seconds. On the left will be Open in…. On the right *may* be Open in Rehearsal® Pro. Choose the appropriate one and your script should be loaded into Rehearsal.
  5. Go to the Add New Script area in Rehearsal® Pro and you’ll see the script there.
