Gmail in Chrome - "Recent Files" gone from Dropbox attachments

Gmail in Chrome - "Recent Files" gone from Dropbox attachments

opusman
Explorer | Level 3

I'm using Gmail in Chrome with Dropbox integration. This is the button I use to attach files from Dropbox:

This used to display a list with (I think) two tabs; one showed all files, and the other showed recent files. I use this all the time but in the last two days the Recent list has disappeared.

 

Does anyone know how to get it back?

Hey @opusman, and welcome to our Community! 

Can you send me a screenshot, of what you see when you click your Dropbox icon, on your email? You should be able to see a list with all of your account's content. 

Have you tried using the Gmail Add-on, to see if the same list appears there, or if the behavior is different? 

Let me know what you find!

This is what I see. It does show all my Dropbox content, that's not the problem.

 

What I used to also see was another tab labelled "Recent Files" or similar, which showed me a quick list of recently modified files. That's what's disappeared.

Hey @opusman, thank you so much for your screenshot, much appreciated. 

Same thing happens on our end, which means this has been recently changed, since you used to see it in the past.

However, thanks for sending along your feedback on this, and noticing! I’ll be sure to pass this along to the dev team.

If you have any other ideas, we're always here.
