Linking to files in Dropbox

There's no need to upload files to the cloud twice when you can link Dropbox files to your Insightly records. For any contact, organization, opportunity, or project, go to the Related subtab, scroll down to Files, and click the Dropbox icon.


Since your Dropbox files are linked, and not copied or moved to Insightly, an Insightly user must have Dropbox permissions to view them.
