Dropbox Extensions Do more with Dropbox using your favorite tools

Dropbox Extensions let you use various types of app extensions to seamlessly perform actions, like publishing a video, adding files to emails and chats, sending a file for eSignature, and more, right from Dropbox—no additional integration work or coding needed. Once you’re done working, you can save files in Dropbox so everything stays organized, in sync and in one place.

What can you do with Dropbox Extensions

Keep files up to date

Now you can be sure everyone is using the latest version and on the same page. Kick off actions directly from Dropbox, easily return to finished work, and avoid scattered content.

Easily track down work

Work on a file in another app, and once you’re done, it will be saved back to Dropbox. Plus, you’ll get notifications when apps save edited copies of your files or someone’s added an eSignature. So when you need to find your work again later on, you’ll save precious time and enjoy a better user experience.

More apps, less work

Do more in one place—and reduce the busywork that gets in the way of getting specific tasks done. Extensions let you connect to the tools you already use, without additional integration work, coding, or software installation. And you can easily manage your Extensions, whether you work solo or manage large teams.
