Small Chat Windows in Dropbox Badge

Collaborator | Level 10

When you are working with a lot of people all over the world, I think it could be very helpful to have a small chat windows in the Dropbox Badge.

When several people are working together at the same time, and one of them makes any changes, it would be great to send message in Dropbox Badge, that automatically appears on the receivers' screen.

Just to say: please save, I'd like to see the latest version and want to make changes.

So many people keep the file open, which is not an issue, but as soon as they only change one letter, even if it is accidentally, and then leave the file open, I always have to take my phone to send a message.

Hey there @Christian78 - thanks for sharing your thoughts and ideas on this!

I'll log this as a feature request with the team. I won't be able to comment on when or if this is going to be implemented though.

In the meantime - I know it's not exactly the same thing - you could try our integration with Slack. It might do the trick for you in those situations. You can see all about it here: https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/third-party/slack

In any case, please let me know if you have anything else to add or ask; I'll be more than glad to follow up.

Thanks Walter, nice to see that Dropbox and you value your customers' thoughts. I'm not a fan of too many third part integrations. Love Dropbox as it is, and it is sometimes hard to make other – older – generations of employees adopt to 'new technology'. It needs to be easy and right at your fingertips. That's what makes Dropbox and all the integrated features in it so unique. Cheers, Christian
