As a returning user to Dropbox Pro, I'd like to ditch the helpful "Get the Most Out of Dropbox" reminders from both the client and web. I can't see a way of doing this - only minimising the darn thing in the web.
What I had to do in the end is send myself an invitation (to another email address I control) to connect and share, sort all that out, and then get rid of the extra account. This benefits nobody. It'd be nice to just dismiss the start-up prompts completely (or if people are really desperate for them - add them in the settings so it can be re-enabled).
Also: please consider allowing us to remove the Dropbox for Business ads in the web interface. Most people are going to be aware of it anyway, but if they're using a paid Dropbox Pro account, how likely is it going to be they're going to sign up and pay for 5 users immediately straight away?
I am so annoyed by that tap too. I already have those all. Can't the dropbox detect already existing apps and all on my computer and mobile app?? What is the point really. Give me a clean, undisturbed window. Since I don't pay, I won't complain about the ads, but that freaking tap is really ridiculous!
I'm also a bit hacked off that whenever you share a link, you're interrupted - I mean prompted - to sign-up or sign-in to Dropbox if you've not already got an account. That's all well and good, but again, this should be a user (the one sharing the link) option, and not forced on anybody else.
In the good old days before Dropbox thought to try and make things easier, the link was presented, nothing popped up, and the user could go ahead and download. The sign-in/sign-up options were there - but not thrown in your face. Now get that infuriating pop-up. Please make this an _option_.
If Pro is intended to serve as an advert or step-up for the Business product, it's sure as heck putting me off with all these helpful pop-ups and such (strange to be saying that, but it's true - sometimes these things can be more of a hindrance than a help). Please let me decide what I and my colleagues can and can't see. I don't want the mollycoddling.
Yes, PLEASE remove this. I signed up for a 2nd (paid) account and not only is this stuck at the top of the screen asking me to do steps I have no intention of ever doing, it is set to "fixed" so even if I scroll it still sits there... taking up space.
Please introduce an option to turn this off. Do not need/want to be baby sat through sign up process.
I hate to do a "me too" post. I use Dropbox for my own personal use and I'm paying at the Pro level with the extra payment for unlimited versioning, I'm not stupid and I can recognise that the functionality I am being prompted to "discover" is of no interest to me. It is annoying to be forced to look at the banner or jump through hoops to make it go away. Give at least the paying users some credit for having the brains to recognise the features of Dropbox without the annoying self advertising. I GET IT, now get rid of the stupid banner
How many times must I see "Congratulations, you've created your first folder." Ridiculous. I see it's 4 years later, and nothing has been done to remedy this. How hard can it be? An if/else JS???
