With the Attachment data type, you can add files from multiple locations: your computer, Google Drive, Box, OneDrive, Dropbox, and more.
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 cells as needed. Or, if you already are using Dropbox, you don't need to change anything when you create a Spreadsheet.com account.
To upload an attachment from Dropbox, you must first (1) set a cell, range of cells, or column to the Attachment data type and second (2) link your Dropbox account to Spreadsheet.com.
How to link your Dropbox account
After setting 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. From the add attachment window, select Dropbox, and follow the instructions to sign into and link your Dropbox account. Linking Dropbox may open another window in your browser.
See Dropbox's instructions for information about the limited access Spreadsheet.com will have to your account and how to disconnect Spreadsheet.com's access.
