Shared link ownership information/profile image display

Shared link ownership information/profile image display

Explorer | Level 4

Hello,

 

Recently I've noticed sometimes when I've been sent a dropbox folder link, the owner/uploader can have their profile image and owner name displayed at the top of the page or on the 'info' section of the URL. This information is essentially it's publicly viewable to whoever has the URL as I have checked logged in/out  and on different browsers etc.

 

Now when I try to add my info to a url, it doesn't seem to display anywhere whether logged in or out and I would really like to know how this is achieved or whether I need to upgrade my account to make it happen?

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

In that case, you may be interersted in our new feature called Branded Sharing @ryanxx.

 

You can find more info about it in the following Help Center article:

I hope this helps, Ryan.

Hi there @ryanxx, I hope you're having a good day today!

 

I'm not 100% certain on what you're referring to here, is it possibly the viewer info icons that appear along the top right of the file when previewing through a shared link?

 

You can check out more on viewer info from here, along with some example images.

 

If it's not this that you're referring to, would you mind sending me a screenshot of an example (excluding personal info) so that I can have a better idea of what you'd like to do here?

 

Let me know and we can go from there!

Thanks daphne, I apprieciate the help! That wasn't quite what I was looking for but I have attached two screen grabs to clarify. I think at least one of them I might have answered my own question as it said "From dropbox business" next to the name but the first example I'm not sure. 

 

Let me know if the attached help with what I'm after, thanks again!

 

 

This one just has "from" name below the folder name

And this one has image and can also be accessed via an info button on the side menu

Thanks for those screenshots @ryanxx!

 

That is indeed a Business feature that allows you to add custom branding to your shared content. You can check out some more info about this from here.

 

To have access to that feature, you would need a Dropbox Business subscription as this isn't available for personal plans.

 

I hope this info helps!

Thanks for clearing that up, it's a shame because I would love this feature, but as a sole trader with only 1 account required it's just not practical to have a business plan purely for myself.

That's the one! I'm now giving professinal a trial and it seems to have the feature I wanted. Whether or not it's worth the price, I'm yet to decide but I think I'll at least try it for a few months and see how we go.

 

Thanks @Walter

Glad to hear that, Ryan!

 

It goes without saying that we'll be one post away should you come up with any Dropbox questions in the future.

 

Just give us a nudge here and we'll be happy to help.

 

Have a wonderful weekend ahead!
