must first upload it to OneDrive by selecting Open from OneDrive from 
within whichever Office Online product you are using (you can install the 
OneDrive app from the Chrome Web Store as well).


The first time you use Gmail Offline you MUST be connected to the internet 
to enable offline viewing.
