Hi, is there a way to share a file and edit it directly on dropbox without having to download and re-upload? Similiar to Google Sheets.

Thank you.

Hey @3354foxj, thanks for reaching out to us.

 

You can have a look at this article which talks about how you can open and edit Dropbox files with third-party apps. 

 

Also, if the files are Microsoft Office documents, you can share them like any other file in your Dropbox account, and edit them by following these steps

 

I hope this helps, but let me know if you have any other questions. Cheers!
