Re: Don't remove Dropbox Showcase !

@MMM77 You're welcome. I really wish I didn't have to go looking at all. Dropbox really pulled one over on us here. I personally will not be renewing my account. I've already got my Synology SAN loaded with 8TBs 👍🏻. I honestly think that Niice is the best alternative but I don't know how they're gonna bridge the pricing gap. Also Invision Boards would be another good alternative. In the end though it looks like I'll be changing my workflow.

Thank you @dietoself86  the InVision boards looks to me to be the closest solution that matches what I use Showcase for. Great suggestion, thank you.

And @MMM77 - I agree. It is terrible to have committed a business to a package with DropBox and then the product cancelled. I too have the same challenge. I have used Dropbox for a decade professionally and 3 years ago took up another account with my business purely for Showcase. If I move to another product/service, I too will be a lost customer to DropBox

I have begun engaging InVision about their boards product. $7.95 a month for multiple users!
Wow!

Will let you know how I go with them.
My solution must be able to showcase Word docs, PDFs, Images, Audio andf Video files. (on any device) with ability to download from the page.

no puedo creer que bajen showcase. Lo usábamos muchísimo para realizar presentaciones con clientes nuevos. Una decisión desacertada

Me, too. I'll likely be downgrading my DB subscription, now.

 

I've just tried out Branded Sharing and Branded Transfer. Neither of them remotely resemble the presentation quality of Showcase. They only display tiny thumbnails. YOu can't simply move items around. Actually, I could go on and on, what they lack.

In case anyone would like to use Sharekits as an alternative to Showcase, here's a 30% discount coupon for the members of the community: DROPBOXFORUM

Not everyone will find it as a viable alternative, but we're receiving many Showcase users who are happy with the tool.

Here are a couple of examples of how the content could be shown:

Hope it helps!

Hi folks, we’ve been keeping an eye on the thread here and it’s clear many of you would like a further response from us.
 
We understand that those here are very passionate about Showcase, and we love to hear your voices and so we want to shed some further light on this decision.
 
Sometimes trying to find the right solution to our customers problems takes a number of iterations, a number of pivots. Showcase was designed to be a great resource to share your work, as many of you here have clearly been doing. 
 
To keep anything, including Showcase, up and operational isn’t unfortunately a case of setting it up and stepping back. As with any feature, significant resources need to be dedicated to maintaining it. In the interest of driving our product experience forward and creating the best overall experience we have had to make the tough decision to redeploy those resources.
 
From a functionality perspective, we’ve built out many of the key elements of Showcase that our users told us they loved at a greater depthfrom our new Dropbox Transfer, to branded sharing, to traffic and insights. While Showcase as a solution will no longer exist, we hope that most of you will not only be able to complete the same tasks and workflows within our new suite, but actually be able to do it with greater efficiency and ease in the long run.
 
I want to stress that we do value your feedback on this. And while in this case we’re not able to pursue your desired direction, we hope that this decision will allow us to work on and improve other features that will improve your experience and enjoyment of the overall Dropbox product.
 
Many thanks,
 
Ross

I truly wish you had better news. The options you suggest are not really close to the functionality of Showcase.

 

The very short notice ( aprrox. 2 ish months) that you were deleting showcase has

caused some stress for sure.  I have thousands of people relying on their showcase links.  It will be a huge shock for them, who I cannot reach for whatever reason, when January 31st comes around and boom, all gone.

Hi people. I and my team are working on a service like sharekits but with a lower price and hope to offer soon. If they can´t offer what we need we have to do something about it.

I appreciate someone took the time to respond. Though showcase honestly is the biggest reason I use Dropbox over alternatives is showcase when I have work to present to a client. It's just great that a cloud service also is where I can directly present my work from. Anyway will look into the alternatives mentioned above and move on.
