Add folders to a Showcase.

Add folders to a Showcase.

New member | Level 2

I am interested in upgrading to Dropbox professional to take advantage of Showcase. I would like to know if it is possible to add folders to the page instead of individual files. Each folder would have multiple files with different content.

I am trying to use Showcase as a client portal for project where information is constantly updating.

Thanks

I ended up going with Padlet just because of this.  I think once they have a proper drive function they'll be unstoppable.  At the moment there is a 'drive' but it sort of just dumps everything you attach onto any Padlet into it.  It's searchable and better than nothing, but it's a far cry from Dropbox.  It's therefore not at all an alternative to Dropbox.  It is, however, an awesome alternative to Showcase in Dropbox.

I already figured out a workaround, but it's far from ideal:

1. Add text box
2. Insert title and create links in subtitle that link to designated folders
3. Show examples of showcase images below

That seems like a decent workaround.  I realized that my Padlet solution doesn't actually fix this problem either.  You can't insert folders of media into it.  But you can link to a single Dropbox folder with subfolder within it, or, as you have done, insert seperate links.  I realize this likely wouldn't work for what you're doing but i felt I should elaborate.  Here's an example of the kind of stuff I share with my students:  Screenshot 2019-02-11 at 10.19.27.jpg

I'd love to see this feature too.  Or better yet, be able to link to a Showcase from a Showcase.  

Without a hierarchy, and without the ability to group/sub-group, you're really limited in the number of files you can add to a Showcase before the page is unusable (and by unusa.

My enterprise sales team asked me to figure this out to make Showcase work for them, and now that I know it's not possible, I have to tell them to find something else.

You can make the link of Dropbox holder on Showcase and update it.

Hi Dropbox Team, Is there an update to this requested feature? Our company is looking to create a page to share all the drop box content in a hierarchical manner. Need to add folders and subfolders for this.

Any news on this topic of having folders in Dropbox showcase? Folders with a menu bar for sections or categories. Like a simple website?

This is a must... can't believe it is still not available
