Dropbox search not working on iOS imessage


Dropbox search not working on iOS imessage

New member | Level 2

Maybe I don't understand how dropbox works for the iOS but I'm almost positive that I've been able to do this before.


I'm texting a client... they ask for a form... I press the little dropbox button in the imessage screenScreenshot 2020-07-13 at 10.42.40 AM.png... I see the search bar I type the name of the form... it's blank... I go INTO the folder where I KNOW the file is... use search bar... BLANK. 


please help me or fix [profanity removed as per Community Guidelines].  And this is happening on multiple iphones/ipads all which are up to date

Re: Dropbox search not working on iOS


Hey there @jordanwine, I hope you're having a good day so far.


Just so I can have a better idea of your current set up, can you let me know which iOS version your phone is running and the version of the mobile app installed?


Also, do you have any issues searching within the Dropbox mobile app itself for the file that you're trying to search for with the steps you mentioned above?


Keep me posted!
