I have noticed that my starred items only seem to show up in certain situations in navigating in DropBox.  If i am in the home folder, which i rarely am i see my starred items at the bottom of the screen.

I think it would useful if two additional entries were made on the side bar below:  Starred and Followed. This way they are always visible regardless of which view i am in.

Hey @tom_bah; thanks for using Dropbox!

 

This idea is going to need a bit more support before we share your suggestion with the team.

Currently, Dropbox defaults to showing the file list first in the app and thus the user must click 4 times (once for the menu, once for "Home", once for "Starred", and once for the folder/file desired) to reach the intended starred folder or file, which is very tedious, relatively speaking.

This poorly designed process/interface eliminates most of the value of even having a starring/favoriting system. If you can't access the starred items fast then it doesn't have nearly as much value as it would otherwise. It only acts as a bookmarking system now mostly. It barely ever speeds anything up and is not easily/clearly accessible enough.

It should require no more than 1 to 2 clicks to ever reach a starred folder or file, otherwise they essentially don't even function as shortcuts most of the time.
