We're thrilled to announce our brand new integration with Dropbox has now been released. It's one of our greatest achievements to date, and a direct result of our commitment to making the Pickit platform the world's simplest DAM system.

Work smarter across platforms with Pickit + Dropbox

At Pickit, we're well aware of the time constraints marketers, brand managers, and sales reps face on a daily basis. Many of our users find themselves losing productivity due to constant context-switching, which is why we're always looking for ways to simplify and streamline workflows. One way of achieving that is by connecting Pickit to the other programs and platforms people are using, saving them from searching for content in multiple locations. 

After connecting to your Dropbox Business account directly from the Pickit platform, you can easily import, manage and distribute your docs alongside your other media files, so you can view all your relevant assets together in one place.

How to connect your Dropbox account to Pickit

When you click on the Media > Other Sources tab, you'll see the integration option for Dropbox. Here, you can connect to your Dropbox Business account and easily import and distribute any of your Dropbox files to your Pickit collections.

Web - Dropbox

To connect the Dropbox extension to Pickit, you can either log-in to your Business or personal Dropbox accounts. Once you're logged in, you'll be able to access and browse an overview of your folders or directly search for a specific file or folder.

Begin to import by clicking on the Import file or Import folder button after hovering on the file/folder. From there, select whether you'd like to import either media or documents, or import both media and documents. You'll also get an option to import directly to a collection to have a better overview of what you've imported.

Finally, you can choose between a one-time sync, which has to be updated manually in order to update new content into it, or an everyday sync. If you select the everyday sync option, all the new files that are uploaded to the imported folder will also be imported daily to Pickit. If there have been any changes to a file, Pickit will replace them with the newly updated version. Under connected folders, you can see all of your active synced jobs, and you can even choose if you would like to disconnect any of them.

Important note: Pickit doesn't delete files that have been deleted in Dropbox; it only adds the new updated/content.
