Will Dropbox ever offer an app or plugin to email files as attachments using Outlook?

Our company is looking at different file share programs such as Dropbox for Business.  We love Dropbox, but have seen some items such as and Outlook Plugin on other programs that would be very helpful for our sales team.  Will Dropbox or is Dropbox thinking about offering a plugin for Outlook?  It works with Outlook so you can attach files straight from Dropbox and it will automatically create a share link for all attached files.

This is helpful because it simplifies the process of sharing multiple documents on our business dropbox.  Currently you have to create a link for every individual document you want to share or create a new folder and copy the documents there and then remember to go back and delete later after the customer has downloaded the items.

Hi Kristin

Thanks a lot for the feedback on an Outlook plugin. I'll pass this on internally.

A Dropbox plugin for Outlook 2013 or later would be a huge help on two fronts:

  1. Sending email
  2. Quickly saving attachments (into a Dropbox-based "Invoices" folder, for example)

Granted, the second can be done by using Explorer ... but it takes a few steps. Anything Dropbox can do to reduce the number of steps will increase Dropbox usage and loyalty.

Thanks!

Sean

Using the PUBLIC folder, and files can be linked to in emails from a common url link, with the user just needing to supply the file name to the end of the link.

 

Not an integrated option, but far more intelligent than having to create a link for each file.

I'd really like to see something available, too.  I love dropbox...but hightail did a great job with their tool.  Now they have dropped the tool from outlook 2016, and some of us our stuck.  Dropbox is great, but takes more clicks than are necessary.

I'd also like an plug in as well Infusion soft has one and is amazing but an Outlook plug in to drop box would make thing so much faster.

We are currently testing Dropbox to determine if we want to switch from Sharefile and the lack of an Outlook plug in, is quite disappointing.

Seems an outlook plugin is pretty standard with other providers. The fact that Dropbox does not offer one is a big negative

Who's talking
