OK I figured it out.


Re: iOS Settings Question

Hey Pete (@Pete G.3), that was fast indeed! upside-down face
Let me briefly mention (as others may have the same question in the future) that if changes made to your Offline files are greater than 20 MB, you can decide whether you’d like to wait for WiFi or sync them anyway. If you'd like folders to update using data (when you're not connected to WiFi),  you can go to your Account tab 👤➡️ gear (top-left) & you’ll see the Use Cellular Data option there (which you can toggle to On)
In any event, I appreciate it that you posted us your question on our Forum Pete; don’t hesitate to let us know of any additional questions or thoughts you may have in the future & it’ll be a pleasure to follow-up. Happy Dropboxing until then!
