Does a "Memories - On This Date" kind of feature exist on Dropbox?

Does a "Memories - On This Date" kind of feature exist on Dropbox?

Google Photos and Amazon CloudDrive have this feature of "On this date" -

e.g. On Sep 22nd, one year ago, two years ago, ... -> shows all photos and videos taken on that date.

Does Dropbox have something similar? Whether built-in or via a third party app? (in any of the platforms - Web or mobile)

Notes:

 

1. If this feature is available via the "Photos" tab on the web app - I'm currently getting "You have no photos or videos", even though I recently (in recent days) uploaded a ton of photos and videos. I have Dropbox Teams Advanced plan.

Could it be that it takes *days* for Dropbox to "refresh" this tab?

2. On the mobile app (Android), I don't see a "Photos" tab at all (just "Files" tab) - related to #1? (since supposedly "no photos found")

Hey @classz, thanks for posting to our Community!

 

There's actually no such feature available, but you're welcome to post this as a feature request, on our idea board.

 

As for the photos tab, it excludes:

 

1) .png files
2) photos smaller than 15 KB in size

 

These files will not appear in the photos tab, so could that be the case here?

 

Keep me posted.

1. Can you filter photos/etc by dates?

2. Regarding "photos" tab not appear - this is not the case here. Lots and lots of JPEG files, larger than 15KB.

You should be able to filter by photos/videos/starred and by years/months/days.

 

Can you also let me know how you're accessing the photos tab? Do you have the option in the left sidebar, when you login to our website?

 

Or are you using this link https://www.dropbox.com/photos ?

Neither works - 

1. On the website (the link you've sent - https://www.dropbox.com/photos) - it says "You have no photos or videos".

2. On the app, that tab doesn't appear at all

Hi @classz, as you mentioned you're on a Dropbox Business team, the Photos tab isn't available for teams.

 

This is only available on personal plans at this time.

That's a major problem - the only reason I have the teams account, is because it's the only one that has enough storage (personal plans do not).

But if I can search for photos/videos by date, it makes the entire account useless for my needs...

Is it possible to access the photos tab as a "team member" somehow?

Or maybe filtering via a third party app that integrates with Dropbox?

Team members (or admins, or any other role) on the Dropbox Business team don't have the photos tab available to them, only personal plans.

 

Regarding a third party app, there is a possibility that one could integrate with Dropbox to view images. Here's a list of some apps that currently integrate with Dropbox.
