Previously in our blog, we described how to Streamline File Collection by using the file request endpoints in our API, however you don’t have to write a full integration to take advantage of the API! Dropbox recently announced a partnership with Tray.io, a flexible General Automation Platform that lets users integrate and automate their business processes. As a developer, building automation workflows on the Tray Platform can save hours of manual work or custom app development.
Let’s say it’s 9:05 AM on Tuesday, and you just realized that yet again, you have to collect reports from your team.
We’re excited to announce the launch of our new Dropbox Technology Partner Program. We expanded our program to include three partner tiers and added a variety of new benefits. Better yet – it’s free to join.
We created the Dropbox Technology Partner Program to team-up with innovative companies to help our 500 million users and 400,000 teams work more seamlessly across best-of-breed tools and solutions. By building and partnering with Dropbox, you can deepen your product offering, expand your customer reach, and create more value for your users.
As a Dropbox Technology Partner,
Dropbox announced an integration with Google Cloud to enable users to create, open, and edit Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides files in Dropbox.
Soon, using the Dropbox API, developers can integrate with G Suite content. New endpoints and extensions to existing endpoints will help Dropbox developers work with these files to serve shared users. This post outlines the changes and updates you should be aware of when handling Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides with the Dropbox API.
G Suite files will be returned by files/list_folder,
File upload from a web browser can be a hassle for both the developer and the end user. By integrating with Dropbox, you can help your users easily get to their files stored in Dropbox and streamline uploads into your app without the need for error handling or multipart form data with backend code.
Dropbox is all about enabling teams to easily collaborate around content. There are many use cases for integrating directly with the Dropbox API, but there are also some scenarios where integrating with a workflow automation platform will allow you to ship a great solution faster than building them yourself. Whether you’re building out workflows for your company, customers, or yourself, Workato uses the Dropbox API to help you automate processes around content in Dropbox and other applications.
Workato can poll for Dropbox events or receive events using webhooks.
FlowVella is an interactive platform for building and viewing presentations on mobile. We met the CEO of FlowVella, Brent Brookler, at a Dropbox Developer Meetup in Seattle and were excited to learn about their integration with Dropbox.
We asked Brent to write a guest post on our developer blog sharing why and how FlowVella integrated with Dropbox on their road to change the presentation landscape. Scroll on to read Brent’s contribution.
