Manage your Dropbox emails, attachments and other content directly from Outlook
The affinity Dropbox connector provides users with an easy way to store their emails, attachments or other content to Dropbox directly from Microsoft Outlook.
Dropbox appears as a Folder location in Outlook enabling you to easily drag and drop emails from Outlook into your Dropbox folder – any email filed this way remains fully accessible in Outlook. If you have lots of folders created in Dropbox, for managing cases or projects, you can use the assisted filing functionality provided by the Repstor affinity Quick File tool. The Quick File tool enables users to quickly locate recent folders and search for folders easily by name, minimizing time spent traversing large folder structures.
Users have the additional benefit of being able to access, save and edit all content from one user interface – Outlook.
