How to sync folder from phone?

How to sync folder from phone?

Hi,
I have Dropbox installed on my computer and phone.
I want to sync a folder from the phone, so that any changes made to it - will also appear on the computer.


For example:
I want to sync a call recording folder from my phone, so that every new recording is automatically uploaded and synced to Dropbox, And will also appear on my computer.

Also, I don't know how to sync a folder (not file) from the phone. Can't find such an option in the Dropbox app.

How do I do that?

Hey @Roee_Y, I'd be happy to answer this for you!

All of our platforms sync with one another. However, you can't have a folder actively sync files from your mobile to the Dropbox app installed there. 

What you can do instead is create a folder on our mobile app, and manually add all new, and old content there. This way everything would sync on the desktop app, and you should be able to access it.

Give me a nudge if you have any other questions

Hey @Lori, Thank you for your answer!

Why do you not allow this?
The solution you have proposed is inconvenient to use.
If there is an app called: "Dropsync" that does this, why does it not exist with you?
Why do you not add this feature so that I don't have to use another app?
