How can I get a client to star or favourite images in a Dropbox Folder?

How can I get a client to star or favourite images in a Dropbox Folder?

Hi I'm trying to use Dropbox to enable client selections on images that I can see.

The problem is, if I favourite an image they can't see it, and if they favourite I can't see theirs?

Is there a way to allow collaboration?

Hey @milomilomilo, I hope you're doing well! 

 

When you star an image, that will show up only on your end, not the person you're sharing it with.

 

The best alternative I can give you for this is to comment on the shared files you want to work on. 

 

Would that work? 

 

I hope this helps!

This would be unbelievably useful—if there was an option to "favourite" or "star" images along with comments that are visible and collaborative to both sides. Currently, we have to use third-party programs to share photo proofs with clients just so they can select the images they want to purchase. Comments alone are too cumbersome when there's hundreds of images to go through. One tiny addition of a star would make Dropbox for photos unbeatable!

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with us @blockmedia

 

I would suggest that you use our "Share an idea" board, when you have a moment; in order to present this as a feature request. That way, other users can also upvote it, and if it gets enough votes, our engineers might consider it. 😊

 

If you need anything else, let me know!

This isnt true, some of my clients can comment and i get am email everytime and i can see all the images they star and others i cant see any?  Why does it work a lot of the time and then not for others?  You have this as a feature if clients need to choose hundreds of images and make comments, you make this feature available how do you suppose they get this information to me?  i see you commented this is for their own information but for what purpose, they would only be commenting for someone else.  I can see this same comment so many times over so many years and you still havent made it avilable, its such a simple feature that would be so useful i want to understand how some can and some cant comment?  If what you said is true it would never work.
