Support for collaborating in iWork apps

New member | Level 2

 Does Dropbox support iWork collaboration, or have this on the roadmap? The last update on this that I could find in the forums suggests that an iWork (Keynote, Pages, Paper) file that is being edited collaboratively must be saved in a non-shared folder.

 

Thanks!

Hey @okjoel, when it comes to our website, iWork files (pages, keynote, and numbers) might have a preview thumbnail, but will not preview in fullscreen. (Note: Only the first page of .numbers, .pages &  .key/ .keynote files will preview.) This is because iWork files are generally not a single file, but usually a package of other files
 
In any event, I appreciate the time you took to detail us your interest on this functionality. I’ve already made sure to pass your comments on to our team specialists, as your thoughts help us better understand your needs & I’ve added your voice to the feedback gathered internally. 
 
Thanks for choosing Dropbox & I'm always here in case you’d like to continue this discussion in more depth. I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day ahead!

Thank you for the quick response, Jane!

To clarify, I'm specifically referring to this feature: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT206181

Hi,

I'm going to throw my hat in here and say I'd also like to see this! Particularly as Box supports this feature:

Hi,

our team has been using Dropbox for a long time but now we get the message too often that someone´s changed the document and you´ll loose your changes. 

How is Dropbox supposed to work with the programs like Pages, Numbers and Keynote when different team members go and work on shared documents sometimes at the same time?

Please add Keynote collaborate support to Dropbox ASAP.

I work at a large global design firm and we have been on Dropbox for a long, long time. In the past year much of our org has shifted to Google Drive becuase of the colabortate feature in Slides. I hate slides and Drive, and really hope to keep using Dropbox, but need Keynote collaborate.

Hi @bpelsoh & everyone else following this thread, I’m merely checking back with you as it would be very helpful if you pinched that “Upvote” ( 👍) button on top, so as to give this idea a small push. Thanks again to all of you that devoted a bit of their time to share your thoughts here!

We would greatly apprichiate this functionallity as well! We are a team of 10 people that primarily use iwork and have constant problems with conflict copies. Thinking about moving from dropbox to Box for this reason. But apart from this we're really happy about dropbox so would be great to be able to avoid that...
