Hello everyone. Long story short, I've had three support tickets without a solution marked as solved. The last time, I explicitly requested that my message be turned into a complaint about the "support" I was receiving. Nothing, absolutely nothing happened, no reply at all.
I've been a Dropbox user for over a decade, and the decline in the quality of technical support (and of the service itself) is appalling.
Does anyone know how can I send a formal complaint?
Hi Megan, thanks for your reply.
The tickets are:
In sum, I had a syncing issue, and it was marked as solved without being solved (and after supposedly being escalated, after a waste of time with the first line of "technical" support). I started another ticket, and AGAIN, it was marked as solved without a solution.
I started another ticket only to complain about the first two, and guess what...it was marked as solved. Not even an apology. Dropbox is a disgrace, especially compared to what it was years ago.
There are technical reasons why it is not so simple for me to move to a different service, and it would cost me a lot of time. But frankly, the company is taking advantage of that. I feel absolutely robbed and treated disrespectfully. Simply ignoring repeated requests and marking them as solved?! Absolutely disregarding an explicit complaint about technical support? Not even acceptable for a free service, let alone for a loyal customer since your beginnings.
Thank you, let's see if I get a meaningful answer this time.
Anyway, my original question is still unanswered, is there an official way to send a complaint? Apparently not.
This seems like a bad joke. You opened a new ticket where I was contacted by a "senior specialist on the Advanced Support team".
After a message on Friday saying "Rest assured we'll get to the bottom of the cause of this problem", the ticket was closed on Monday morning and marked as solved, before I even answered.
I received an email yesterday (Sunday) saying "If we don’t hear from you in the next few days, your support request will be closed. You can reopen it at any time."
Am I supposed to spend my weekend answering belated messages from Dropbox Support? And if I don't, the ticket is marked as solved so that someone's metrics look good?
Whoever is behind the working and the incentives of Dropbox technical support, congratulations for killing Dropbox. Changes in technical support are even worse than the new "features" of the Dropbox app, and that is difficult to achieve.
I don't have time to read the terms and conditions, but I feel I am being robbed. As soon as I can solve the technical issues that force me to stay with Dropbox, I am migrating away.
Hello I am writing again In hope I won't get fobbed off. I was supposed issued a refund for a charge taken without my authorization. The problem was resolved on the 31/10/22 as I managed to get talking with a very helpful lady on live chat. It said in my paypal account refund from Dropbox issued and pending. Amount of (£199). It still has not arrived in my bank. Please can you help resolve this as it is a right pain in the arse and looks really very bad for what was /is?? a great company/service. I have done absolutely everything. I can not say how utterly shambolic the service or lack of customer care with this has been. Please get back to me.. I won't hold my breath tho..
email for account and refund [Removed as per Community Guidelines]
What I 'm saying is that it never went into my account!!! Hence this faff!! can you send me a direct email so that I can send screen shots proof of my not receiving the £199 refund. It says refunded on 31st October and there is no payment at fo that sum I checked right up to four week after and nothing . Can you enlighten me as to where it is?
Can I just speak with someone on live chat or a phone call ? I see are no longer a support option. This should not be so difficult. Who do I send screenshot proof or bank statements showing I never received the supposed refund to?
For more info on available support options, see this article.
