Option to Star a folder for offline viewing

New member | Level 1
New member | Level 1

I have a feature request that we should be able to star a folder as well for offline viewing as we can star individual files on iPhone and iPad apps.

Allow to mark folders as favorites

I would like to have the option to add a whole folder as favourite in Android version, so the whole folder will be available offline.

Me too - I'd really like to have a folder on my tablet that gets all the updates from the corresponding folder my PC - at the moment each trip away (planned on the PC at home) needs a manual download of a number of files on the tablet, all of which go in the same folder

Why can't you (dropbox) just allow people select a folder for offline access on android devices???????????

Please do not insult my intelligence with technical reasons why you cannot do that - because there are no technical reasons why you cannot do that.

So whats the political reason?

ditto.

I can't see any obvious technical reason for not doing this, and I'm struggling to think of a commercial one too. It is very frustraing to have to go through every file in an "important docs" directory and indiviudally mark each one as a favourite to ensure it syncs across mobile devices.

Surely must be a relatively easy product enhancement, and one that your competitors already have ? 

thanks,

Gareth.

I second this request. It would be very helpful to be able to do a whole folder at once rather than have to flag every file individually.

A Dropboxer recently posted that this feature is coming soon to Android. Hopefully iOS won't be far behind.
