Hi harrybel,

I use Instagram too and I understand your pain. We’re working to better prioritize this, but we can’t commit to a timeline right now. I am personally pushing for this to be higher priority.

As a personal work-around, I offline the files I want to export first. When the green icon appears on the offline files that means they've downloaded to the Dropbox app cache, and when you export it it will be instant, instead of having to download.

Maple - thanks for the suggestion. Problem is I'm a free user, so it's still only possible to offline them one at a time.

You still gain a little bit from offlining each file, by not having to wait for the whole download to finish before offlining the next file.

It is absolutely ridiculous that you can only export one photo at a time to the camera roll. I spent hours searching for the answer and what's even crazier is this was brought to your attention as an issue YEARS ago and is not fixed yet. I now have to hit Export, save, 400 freaking times to get my pics back on my phone to use them as needed. Defeats the purpose of storing them on Dropbox for convienience if it will take hours to get them back smh. The whole point of storing them on something that had an app for my phone as well as my computer was ease of access and a time saver etc. Perhaps there should be a popup letting you know that *before* you upload them (which you can upload multiple at a time, just not get them back lol)

As topic.

 

I have pro susbcription and noticed that I cannot save multiple photos from dropbox app to IOS camera roll. (only can do single file "export")

 

This is preposterous, how can a function so basic escape the development / design team.

 

I understand this comment has been brought on for YEARS.

And the stupid video sound issue is neve fixed (namely where you upload a video file onto dropbox, the soudn suddenly disappears, where the file was perfectly fine before that on pc, but I dgress... )

 

Any update on exporting multiple photos from DROPBOX APP into IOS camera roll? I will cancel and advice all the people I know to not use dropbox TBH if this is not fix.

Export multiple files FROM Dropbox TO mobile phone camera roll.

I'm creating a new thread for this, as there is an existing thread which is stated as 'solved' however it's not solved, there are just workarounds:

https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Mobile/Export-save-multiple-images-to-Photo-Roll-from-Dropbox-IOS-ip...

Dropbox team,

A lot of users are paying you (including me) and have been for several years, not just so we can store files on Dropbox, but also so you can develop and improve the app. This was flagged as important by your own team, yet you still haven't added the functionality!

Export multiple files FROM Dropbox on a smarphone TO the smartphone's camera roll. No workarounds, just an obvious addition to the core app functionality.

Pete Borlace

Re: Export multiple files FROM Dropbox TO mobile phone camera roll.

Hi @Walter

Thanks for the quick reply and for raising this with the mobile app's dev team. I'd be interested to also read your opinion on this; do you think this feature should be in the app? 

Regards,

Pete
