How to use camera uploads with Dropbox Business

Camera uploads is an optional feature available to all Dropbox users, including Dropbox Business teams. The feature automatically uploads photos from your mobile device to your Dropbox Business account and saves them in the Camera Uploads folder.

  • If you have connected your Dropbox personal and Business accounts, you can only have camera uploads enabled for one account at a time (personal or business)
  • Dropbox Business users can tap Time frame in the Camera uploads mobile page to set it to upload All photos on their device’s camera roll or New photos only going forward
