Upload Attachments From Dropbox

Spreadsheet.com supports attachment file imports from Dropbox and other services.

With the Attachment data type, files can live in cells just like other data. And with attachment uploads, you can keep your team's files in Dropbox and attach them into Spreadsheet.com as needed.

To upload an attachment from Dropbox, you must first set a cell, range of cells, or column to the Attachment data type and then link your Dropbox account to Spreadsheet.com.

How to Link Your Dropbox account

After you have set a cell, range of cells, or column to the Attachment data type, you can then link your Dropbox account to Spreadsheet.com. Linking your Dropbox account allows you to navigate your Dropbox files and chose ones to upload.

To link your account, choose to add an attachment by clicking on the Add attachment button in an attachment cell.
