Google Sheet Offline Edit

Google Sheet Offline Edit

Hello,

Does anyone know how it is possible to edit google sheets files located in my dropbox folders while being offline ?

I have no trouble opening and editing a file while i'm online (file opens up in Google Chrome through dropbox integration) but as soon as i am offline (Working in a train or with poor signal) the file opened in google Chrome is unusable : i can open it and see it as it was last saved but i can't perform any actions or editing.

 

I know there's an offline mode for google sheets when used outside of dropbox through Google Drive parameters but these parameters are unaccessible when the files are stored in dropbox.

 

Any tips ?

 

Thanks a lot,

 

SK

Hi @saint-kitts, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

Currently, it isn't possible to edit any cloud docs while your device is offline, since the edits are done direct on the website. 

 

If you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future!
