Please update as suggested - i don't understand why mac users pay the same price for less functionality. The inability to add Dropbox is more likely to drive me away from Microsoft products rather than to stay with them.

I followed the directions in the link, and ensured that the Office integration was enabled throught the Admin settings of my Drobbox Business account. However, when I go to excel/word/powerpoint and choose the 'Save As' funciton and try to add dropbox as a place, it is still not listed as an option for Online Locations. I am restricted to Sharepoint and OneDrive.

Anyone experience this as well and have a solution?

Hey @Fixxxer, thanks for poking me here! Kindly note that if you have a Dropbox Basic or Plus account, you will not need a Microsoft account or Office license to edit your files.
 
However, if you have a Dropbox Business account, you will need an enterprise Microsoft account with a license that allows editing in Office Online (Business, Business Essentials, Business Premium, ProPlus, E1, E3, E4, or E5).
 
Additionally, if you're using a tablet larger than 10", Microsoft requires that you have an O365 license to use Office applications. 
 
Would you mind checking whether any of the above applies in what you’re currently experiencing? Please let me know of your findings in your next message here so as to follow-up with you as closely as possible. I’ll be awaiting your next reply!

Please add my voice to the many who are asking for full Mac integration, and not just for laptops but for iPads as well. Thanks!

And I am a stockholder. What am I supposed to do?  Throw 5 years of accumulated files into the ocean like a rock?  This is absolutely aggrevating!!  Makes dropbox worthless.

I don't understand.... I was actively doing this on my MacBook Air. I unfortunately water damaged it a few days ago and had to buy a new MacBook. I have been going through and setting it up, and now my Dropbox wont integrate with Excel/Word etc. I've no idea why I could do it before, and why I can't now. This is really frustraing!

Hey @AlisonLawtonsorry to hear about any frustration this may have caused you; let’s see what could be done to return to your previous state of affairs. 
 
From what I gather from your description, it looks like you used to follow Nate_C’s instructions here to save your files to Dropbox on your Mac, is this the case? If so, could you try replicating once again referencing these instructions & let me know here if you’re facing any issues along the way or you need further guidance in any way? Thanks in advance for the time you’re devoting to work on that with me & I’ll be awaiting your next reply here with the outcome!

This answer is confusing.  the link goes back to the set of instructions that says you need a Mac?

Hey @Jon16, please accept my apologies for the tardy reply here; I can see that you've discussed that with Nate under this conversation, so I'm cross-linking the two threads for anyone else viewing this interaction in the future. :wink:

Other than that, please don't hesitate to get back in touch with us if you need further guidance & we'd happily work with you again. Take care until then!
