office 365 - dropbox integration

Do we know when or if dropbox and microsoft plan on integrating the below compatibility for macs? 

https://www.dropbox.com/app-integrations/microsoft

 

I think it was a little shortsighted to release such a big thing without making sure all OS would be able to implement it.

 

Thanks for any info you have.

Hi @bmatson93 

 

The Dropbox badge works on Mac's perfectly well - I have it here. 

 

If you are wanting to be able to save directly from Office to Dropbox thats not possible at all (from Windows or Mac) and it would depend upon Microsoft allowing it which I, personally, cannot see as its competes with their own OneDrive. 

 

Co-editing is also available, but, again, for both Windows and Mac it is via Office on the Dropbox website, not the standalone desktop versions on computers.

Hello @Mark,

 

Office 365 can connect directly to dropbox if you choose it as a "place" in the application itself on Windows computers according to this other question https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/third-party/adding-place-microsoft-office.

 

This comes into play when a team has workbooks connected to other workbooks in the directory but links cannot be updated automatically because  the file path  "/User/[name]/dropbox/foldername/filename.xlsx" cannot be relative, but that is not an issue with onedrive/sharepoint. Essentially, we just need excel files to be able to link to other workbooks over multiple users.

 

It really seems to me the problems could be fixed if this compatibility was presented on MacOS as well.

 

Thanks.

I am 99% certain that integration didnt last long - for example that talks about needing v29 of Dropbox yet we are currently on v120.x. 

 

Dropbox has an annoying habit of not removing old out of date help articles.
