Dropbox Offline files not updating on mobile, when the device is back online.

Dropbox Offline files not updating on mobile, when the device is back online.

Explorer | Level 4

I modify a file that is available offline on my Samsung tablet using my app.  The offline file not updating when the device is back online.  If I manually go into the Dropbox app and open the file then save it, it will update to the cloud.  Is there something I can do to ensure it updates to the cloud after my app changes the file?

Thank you

Brad

Hi @BradHenderson 

 

On mobile devices you need to manually reupload or open via Dropbox. There is no option/setting or way to do so otherwise - Dropbox simply doesn't know its been edited otherwise.
