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.

Hi there, @ve3
 
Currently, there isn’t a way to do this in one go, but I’d be happy to share your thoughts with the dev team for future consideration. 
 
Let me know if you have any other comments you’d like me to forward and, in the meantime, have a great day ahead! grinning face with smiling eyes

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 slightly smiling face

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.
