Create a Link for an Attachment Using Dropbox

If you'd like to include a file in an email, you'll need to host it somewhere so you can share a link to the file. One way you can do this is to use Dropbox. Dropbox offers a free trial to start, and after that there's a monthly fee. Click here to find out more.

There are two ways to create a link:

  • Desktop Application. If you have the Dropbox desktop application on your computer, simply control-click (or right-click) on the file to open its contextual menu. Choose "Copy Dropbox Link" The link will be copied and you can immediately paste it into your VerticalResponse email message.

Dropbox app share link

  • Website. You can also share a link from the Dropbox website. Sign in to your account, and hover over the name of the file and a "Share" box should appear to the right.  Click on "Share".  A pop up box should appear (see below).  Look at the bottom of the box with the option to "Create link".  After selecting create link, an option will appear that says "Copy link" to get the URL.  Paste that link into your email.

Once you have the link to your file, you can add it to your email message. For more information or  help with Dropbox, take a look at their help site:
