Make folder available offline on iOS

Make folder available offline on iOS

I have been waiting very patiently for the ability to make folders available offline in the iOS app. It seems Android users have this function already. It has been asked for so many times going back years and still no sign on iOS. Then I saw this post:

 

https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Space/Maximum-Size-for-an-offline-folder-on-iOS/m-p/197778

 

I have the latest Dropbox app on my Ipad Pro. I have Dropbox Pro, but I don't have this feature in my app. 

 

I am actually considering switching to another Cloud storage because of the lack of Offline folders, but am now confused whether it is available or not?

OK solved. IPAD needed a restart to make this function visible.

Great thanks for the info. Is the user who posted the message I referred to on a Beta program then?

Good morning,

may I kindly ask - what does "soon" mean - is there any date you can share with us?

Thx

Dropbox typically does not share release dates.

That being said, I have the feature available on my iPhone (in both the beta and public releases). Dropbox does tend to roll things out in stages, so if you don't have it available to you just yet, I would say that it's likely not far off. And remember, this is a Pro/Business feature. It is not available to Basic accounts.

Offline files are now sorted by name but I still want to be able to move them (change order on the offline list) Why you took away that option? I really need to be able to move files up/down the list
