Copying file into multiple folders

New member | Level 2

Is there a way to copy one file into multiple folders at once? I have one document that needs to go into 100 different sub folders and looking for a quick way to do it.

Thank you for your prompt response. Although I was hoping for a different answer... I'm currently using Dropbox business and I feel it should be a standard function that would save so much time. Thank you for passing along the message to the dev team, I would like to see this option in the near future

Has this function been integrated yet? I've been following for a while and this would save me and numerous other businesses hours maybe days of work in total. 

 

Many thanks!

No, it hasn't. I don't know of any service or file system that allows that, short of scripting it manually. I highly doubt this is something that will ever be integrated.

This function would be very useful. Especially for brands that want to share content with other brands from photoshoots. A solution here would save hours of manual work. You would simply click on a particular file (e.g. a photo) and then select from a list of folders where you would like a duplicate file to be copied to. It would literally save hours. Hopefully you can find a solution. Thanks.
