Adding Files into Dropbox

Add Files to a Folder

  1. Select the Actions drop down menu to the right of the folder in which you want to upload an item.
  2. Select Upload Files.
  3. You can upload your files in two ways: by file browser or drag and drop.

Special Note to Mac users: When uploading a file, make sure the file extension (e.g., .gif, .doc, .ppt) is present. If a file extension is not present, anyone attempting to download or view the file will receive an error message.

  1. Select Continue
Files with names that include special characters or accent marks cannot be accepted. If your file’s name contains one of these characters, change the file name before attempting to upload it.

Adding Files into Multiple Dropbox Folders

  1. Select Upload Files to Multiple Drop Box Folders.
  2. Choose File to upload.

You can select multiple participants for upload by holding the Command (Mac) or Control (Windows) key while selecting participants.
