Open links to files in shared folders directly in Finder instead of the site

Open links to files in shared folders directly in Finder instead of the site

Our company uses Dropbox Business, and teammates regularly send e-mailed links to files within the shared folders. Clicking them spawns the web browser which then prompts me to download a copy of the file instead of taking me to the file, which might be nested in a folder several layers deep, in the Dropbox app or Finder. So my request is to give users an option to open links to files that are already in the shared Dropbox folders using Finder, or at least the Dropbox desktop app.

Hi @edispaltro, thanks for messaging the Community.

 

Currently, we do have the Open button, which might help you with your request, provided that you meet the requirements in that article for the feature to work normally.

 

Would this satisfy your requirements?

Hi Jay. No, it does not. I'm referring to links to files shared within our Business account which are sent via e-mail. Since they already are accessible through Finder (I'm on a Mac), going back to access through the web browser is less than optimal.
