Saving attachments from emails in outlook into dropbox online version

Saving attachments from emails in outlook into dropbox online version

Hello, 

As our dropbox folder is too large to sync with the computer to have it in our normal finder (using a mac) we use the online version of it. We have problems with not being able to copy files on emails in outlook direct to upload onto the site. Is there a way around this? We are not able to only select a couple of folders to sync as we use all of them for different projects. 

Currently we have to place the item on the desktop before uploading it onto the site. If we are in a hurry, this leaves a messy desktop. Is there anyway you can sync the dropbox folders onto your computer without it using up space?

Many thanks in advance.

No, not yet. That feature is coming, but it's likely going to be a feature for the Business or Enterprise accounts only.

If you're not syncing the folders, then the only way to upload files to them is to do it through the Dropbox website by saving them to your computer first.

I hope they also allow this feature for Dropbox Pro considering its annual cost.

Hi,

 

Please have a look at the Repstor integration for Dropbox, this might solve your problem.

 

Cheers,

Rob

Hi everyone, 

 

Are you still using Outlook? If so, are you interested in trying out a new Dropbox add-in we're working on for MS Outlook? You can read more about it here.

 

Thanks!
