Is it possible to add a 'folder' to Showcase page?

New member | Level 2

I am interested in upgrading to Dropbox professional to take advantage of Showcase. I would like to know if it is possible to add folders to the page instead of individual files. Each folder would have multiple files with different content.

 

I am trying to use Showcase as a client portal for project where information is constantly updating.

 

Thanks

Hey there @soarchitect - welcome to the Dropbox Community!

 

Thanks for showing your interest in Showcase and helping us improve it! 

 

As this is not a current feature, I wanted to say thanks for reaching out to us with this comment. I'll pass this on as a feature request for adding folders to Showcase.  Our development team is always looking for ways to make the Dropbox experience better so I will make sure to pass your feedback along.

 

If there's anything else I can help with in the meantime, do let me know please!

Is there any news about this?  I've got hundreds of audio files that I need to share alongside PDFs and I most certainly cannot have them all displayed one next to the other as it defeats the purpose of the neat showcase.  I could link back to a Dropbox folder, but that too defeats the purpose of having everything in one place per 'project'.

Thanks for reaching out and using Showcase @virtualowl!

As mentioned in my previous reply, this is not an option at the moment. It does seem like a great idea for future implementation so I'll make sure to pass your comments along our dev team for consideration. Thank you for your feedback and feature request!

If there's anything else I can do to help in the meantime, please let me know and have a lovely week ahead too. Thanks!

That´s really sad. I have to show a lot of Pics in the showcase and it is impossible to copy them all to the grid. Please consider to add this feature soon.

Is there any update on this topic, Walter? Would really consider switching to Professional after the trial ends, but this feature is a must.

Unfortunately, I don't have any further information about this to share at the moment @DennisW21 - I'll make sure to circle back here to let you know about it if/when I have an update on this. 

Thanks for your interest in Showcase and happy Monday!

I ended up going with Padlet just because of this.  I think once they have a proper drive function they'll be unstoppable.  At the moment there is a 'drive' but it sort of just dumps everything you attach onto any Padlet into it.  It's searchable and better than nothing, but it's a far cry from Dropbox.  It's therefore not at all an alternative to Dropbox.  It is, however, an awesome alternative to Showcase in Dropbox.

I already figured out a workaround, but it's far from ideal:

1. Add text box
2. Insert title and create links in subtitle that link to designated folders
3. Show examples of showcase images below

That seems like a decent workaround.  I realized that my Padlet solution doesn't actually fix this problem either.  You can't insert folders of media into it.  But you can link to a single Dropbox folder with subfolder within it, or, as you have done, insert seperate links.  I realize this likely wouldn't work for what you're doing but i felt I should elaborate.  Here's an example of the kind of stuff I share with my students:  Screenshot 2019-02-11 at 10.19.27.jpg
