import contacts from apple

Explorer | Level 3

First, dropbox was free. Now, it's free with a catch. If you want it to work correctly, you have to do things their way, not how you've been working for , oh, maybe 11 years. I don't keep any contacts in gmail although I do use gmail as my primary email account, although I only use it via Apple Mail. Ok, I have an iMac, two iPhones, and an iPad. Why not use the contacts from Apple? Great idea. Hey, Dropbox won't import from Apple. Why Not?

Indeed, WHY NOT?

I refuse to export my contacts from Apple Contacts, into whatever form Gmail can then  import them. Is that even an option? I'm certainly not going to search for it. Anyway, after getting them into gmail, I then have to maintain TWO contact lists. Apple and GMAIL. Not gonna happen.

So, I'm not about to upgrade and pay real money to Dropbox Pro when they refuse to honor whatever system of contacts you use with your computer. That would be the height of stupidity.

As this idea is going to need a bit more support before we share your suggestion with our team, I've just updated the status to encourage more users to back you up! 

Status changed to: Needs more votes
Explorer | Level 3

After re-reading what I wrote in November (was that 2019 or 201, I agree fully and wholeheartedly with what I wrote. I would only change  one word, (on to of) to make one of the last few sentences read more clearly. Just a typo really.

 

Hope your changing the status makes a difference. Thanks.

Still not upgrading til this change is incorporated.

Thanks for your swift response @triker01!

I totally get your track of thought and of course it's your prerogative to not upgrade until our product fully meets your needs.

Also, the post was originally from the 23rd of November 2019 and I also corrected the typo you mentioned for you.

If there's anything else you'd like to add or ask, please let me know.

I am totally in agreement with the above user... I want to be able to access my Apple contacts straight into Dropbox.

I am having the same issue, I am in the Apple Ecosystem, and want to use my contacts straight into DropBox, I am paying for DropBox business, not happy.

Come on DropBox that should be one of the first things you need to add?

 

Is there any other easy way ?
