Add an attachment using Dropbox

Visibility of the
Choose from Dropbox
button is controlled by an organization setting so it might not be active for your organization. If it is active, you must first register with Dropbox and then sign in before you can attach files. Details on how to register and sign in are presented below.
If you want to include an attachment in an alert, alert template, event, or event template, you can upload media or documents on Dropbox and then include a link to that attachment within the alert, event, or template you are creating. To add a link to an attachment stored in Dropbox, complete the following steps:
  1. In the
    section of the alert, event, or template, click
    Choose from Dropbox
  2. Enter your Dropbox username and password. If you do not have a Dropbox account, click
    create an account
    under the
    Sign In
    button to create one.
    Although you need to set up an account in order to access Dropbox, you can use the
    Choose from Dropbox
    button to select files stored in the cloud or add files from your local drive without having to install the full Dropbox application on your computer.
