Adding Dropbox into Gmail is pretty easy and extremely useful. As we've recently started integrating Dropbox heavily into our client workflows (as well as our own projects) I found it extremely annoying not to be able to easily share Dropbox files via email.
Our choices were limited to:
- Don't share via Dropbox
- Go to Dropbox, get the share link via Dropbox, copy-paste into the email
- Go to Dropbox folder, find file, copy-paste into email
Now honestly, the last two aren't that horrible. But, having an easy to access interface comes in extremely handy for quick things. Especially if I wanted to save something from the email directly to dropbox for safe keeping.
Thankfully there is now a handy extension for Chome aptly called “Dropbox For Gmail“:
