How to save DocSend files to your Dropbox account

Updated Jan 15, 2024
If you have both a DocSend and a Dropbox account, you can choose to automatically or manually save signed DocSend documents to your Dropbox account. To do this, you must be the document’s link owner in DocSend. When enabled, a zip file of the signed DocSend document and its accompanying signature certificate will automatically save to the DocSend folder in your Dropbox account. The document’s file name will remain the same across your DocSend and Dropbox accounts.

How to manually save DocSend files 

You can save individual DocSend files to Dropbox without enabling auto-save. In DocSend, click the Dropbox icon next to the file you want to save. The zip file will save and then open in the DocSend folder in your Dropbox account.

Note: If the zip file doesn’t automatically open in your Dropbox account, you may be experiencing an issue caused by a third-party browser extension or add-on (such as a pop-up or ad blocker).

To fix this, temporarily disable any browser extensions or add-ons that are running. Once you no longer need the Dropbox window to open from DocSend, you can re-enable these browser extensions. If you'd like to continue using the extension, you may be able to create an exception for DocSend, or whitelist However, not all extensions support this functionality.
