File details

File details

It would be more than incredibly helpful, almost basic, to have file details such as when the file was uploaded, when it was last changed, what kind of file it is and what kind of properties it has.

Hi there @AZdripDrop, thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. 

Just to make sure that we're on the same page, are you referring to the file details showing up on the web?

Looking forward to hearing back from you!

 app or web. There’s no easy way to see files versions, details about the file itself, or if files are being uploaded from a different source while on my phone. For example, I will let my desktop app sync the files and I will leave my home to go to a meeting or run errands, and I wish there was a way to see the progress of the files on my desktop syncing up to dropbox so that I know that it’s doing it’s job, so that I don’t need to return home immediately. Also, an easier way to see the version history  within the app along with format detail like long is the video file, what format is it in (such as ProRes vs h264). There just isn’t much to this filing system other than sharing, commenting, and deleting.
