export multiple files to e-mail using mobile app

Hello,

I tried to use the multiple file selection mentioned on the text but my app only shows to download to mobile, copy, move and delete.

Is there another way to attach multiple files to an e-mail on mobile? I use Android 10

 

Older community text. "Hey there , kindly note that it is indeed currently possible to export multiple files to your email provider. As you're viewing your Dropbox account, tap on the  button at the top-right hand corner & you'll be able to multi-select files :right arrow: Select the ones you'd like to Export to your email & tap on Export at the bottom of your screen. Once you get to the the pop screen that appears there, you'll see your email options. "

Hi there @Eric Delisle; welcome to the Community!

 

The option to export to an email app is only available for single files by tapping on the ellipsis button and choosing the relevant option.

 

If you'd like to attach multiple files in an email on your Android device, you can export them to your device and then attach them to your email from there. 

 

Alternatively, you could put them in a folder and then share a link to the folder directly. 

 

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any more questions.

Hello Walter,

 

Thanks for reply, ok for the explanation, but, I expected something more usefful from Dropbox app. On windows or IOS on computers ( I use both ) is very easy to attach any amount of files. Dropbox should think of something easier for apps on Android ( Or IOS ). 

Maybe an option to set free the e-mail access inside the cell phone to Dropbox files, or an option to select and export multiple files from dropbox to be attached on e-mail without having to download them. I use Gmail and Typeapp as e-mail servers, I believe they are "safe" to get access directly to dropbox files.

Regards,

Eric Delisle
