Make your file-sharing easier with Flock's Dropbox integration.
Modern businesses rely on an array of tools to get work done, but moving back and forth between apps can slow you down. If you’ve ever had to share links to Dropbox files and folders in an email or instant message, you know that shuffling between the two can get annoying. With the Flock and Dropbox integration, your team’s files and conversations stay together so you can work together more efficiently.
Connect your Dropbox account to Flock to search for files stored on the cloud right inside Flock—no more back and forth. Share files person-to-person or with a group of colleagues in channels, and add context to conversations with automatic file previews!
