How to pin integrated apps to newly created Dropbox Spaces?

How to pin integrated apps to newly created Dropbox Spaces?

I recently converted some folders into spaces and integrated a few apps.  However, I am unable to pin Slack to the space, set up a to-do list in a space, or share a document to Slack from within a space in the Dropbox Desktop app (I followed these instructions https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/third-party/slack and got a "There was a problem completing this request". The Sept. 25 video promised a lot, but I'm having trouble getting my space to have all the functionality as seen in the promotional video.

Thanks for following up Lusil,  I tested sharing exactly as I'd done it before, and it worked.

 

This is working now: share an item from dropbox desktop to slack using thse instructions https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/third-party/slack

 

Thanks again,

Hi there @anncla3000

Welcome to the Dropbox Community!

I just wanted to clarify a few details. For example:

  • Are you trying to pin Slack as an extension to your Dropbox Spaces?
  • What steps are you following exactly and during what step are you getting that error message? 

Let me know what you find!

Hi Lusill,

I'm trying 2 things.  #2 is solved, but #1 is not. 

1. to share an item from dropbox desktop to slack using thse instructions https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/third-party/slack

1a. the failure message shows up after step 3 of the desktop instructions.

2. In the September 25 launch video, a video shows how to Share a comment in Dropbox to Slack.  I thought the comments column was actually Slack pinned or embedded in Dropbox, but that is not the case.  This is solved, as I was able to share a comment in slack - image below is from the Sep 25 Work in Progress Keynote https://blog.dropbox.com/topics/company/work-in-progress-keynote-livestreamScreen Shot 2019-10-16 at 13.47.56.png

Thanks for clarifying that for me, @anncla3000

Out of curiousity, are you able to share the file to Slack from your Dropbox desktop app by previewing it first? 

Let me know how it goes!
