Make Dropbox Client Version History available on Dropbox.com

Make Dropbox Client Version History available on Dropbox.com

I have spent almost an hour searching the Dropbox website and chatting with both the "ChatBot" (rather frustrated by this), a "Support Agent" via chat (also a little frustrating), as I have been trying to find an "Up to date" list of current and historical "Dropbox Client Installer Versions and Release Dates".

 

When I tried the "ChatBot" I just keeps directing me to the "Files Version History" for items stored using the dropbox client. Which is NOT what I am looking for. 

 

To make matters worse, when chatting with an agent via the "Chat portal" they were unable to open or view a link to "secured Microsoft website" so that I could advise more quickly what I was looking for. Chat supplied link : - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdates/update-history-microsoft365-apps-by-date 

 

What I would like to request is for Dropbox to provide directly on Dropbox.com a list of the Dropbox Client Installers with version numbers and Release dates, like almost every other Client-Side Application providers do.

 

Please review this request and give it some serious consideration as this information is currently only available through a third party site that does not appear to be affiliated with yourself, meaning that the data could be out of date, in-correct or even both.

Thank you for the response.

 

Unfortunately the link provided is the same link that the a CS Agent advised was the only thing that DB currently has.

The link only takes me to the forum where people discuss items about a particular release, and does NOT have any of the information that I am looking for.

 

What I am looking for is either a table or list of historical client installers with the Dates that they were released.

It really is not a hard thing to ask for!

 

I have found a third party who claim that they have collated the list that i am looking for, however the third party is not affiliated with DB they are not a Partner of DB therefore I am unable to use the data they are providing as I cannot guarantee its legitimacy.

No offence is meant to the third party, but I am looking for an OFFICIAL LIST provided by the publisher of the product.

 

As my original post shows a Link to Microsoft and what they provide for their Office Suite... I am looking for something nice and simple like that but for the DropBox Client Installers : Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iPhone/iPad.

I understand, David and thanks for your feedback about this. 

If the page I provided isn't what you're looking for, you can definitely post about this on our idea board for other users to up-vote.
