Can I get geolocation on where my files were created?

Can I get geolocation on where my files were created?

Hello,
Is there any way of getting (and using) the location where I was when I created a file? I can’t find anything about this. It would be a nice feature to have for a lot of professionals. As well as campers etc. When I’m traveling I often want to create a short note about something interesting that I want to be able to either look up later or come back to. And so I’d like to be able to go to the “info” about the file I created and have a link that would open a map application showing the location where I was when I created the note.
Thanks for any help.

Hi @David M.180, thanks for posting today!

Currently, there isn't a feature like that on Dropbox, although, depending on your phone, your photos might have geolocation in the metadata of the file.

As this isn't possible for other normal files, if you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future!
