What are people pages?

This feature is only available to Dropbox Business users.
People pages display files, folders, meetings, and updates that you and the person whose people page you’re viewing share, in the Dropbox desktop app. You can also Slack, email, or create a Zoom meeting with that team member directly from their people page.

You can view people pages for each member of your team. They display the following information:

  • Contact information and the calendar of the person whose page you are viewing
  • Shared content, including content they have shared with you and collaborated with you on within the last 90 days
  • Recent activity on shared content and their activity highlights, including when a file was last shared or edited
  • Upcoming shared Zoom meetings you have with them

How can I view a people page?

To view someone’s people page:

  1. Open the Dropbox desktop app.
  2. Under People in left-side column, click their name.

Can I search for someone’s people page?

Yes. If you don’t see the name of the person you’re looking for, you can search for their people page. To do so:

  1. Open the Dropbox desktop app.
  2. Under People in the left sidebar, click Add someone.
  3. Begin typing their name, and click on their profile from the menu that appears.
  4. Click their name to view their people page.

Can I view someone’s people page on dropbox.com?

No, people pages are currently only available in the Dropbox desktop app.

How does Dropbox determine who to suggest under the People section?

Suggested people are determined by the other Dropbox users you have most often and most recently shared or collaborated with, even if they’re not using Dropbox Business. People who are suggested will have the sparkle icon next to their name. You can pin up to 20 people to pin to your sidebar by clicking the “pin to sidebar” icon (it looks like a pin) from their people page. You can also add people pages to the People section by clicking + Add someone. The added people won’t be notified when you add them or view their page.

Can I hide or dismiss people listed under my People list?

Yes. To hide or dismiss someone listed under your People list:

  1. Open the Dropbox desktop app.
  2. Under People in the left sidebar, right-click a person’s name.
  3. Click Remove from sidebar or Dismiss Suggestion.

How can I connect my email, calendar, and Slack to my people page?

If you have already connected one of these accounts, it will automatically show on your people page.

To see which accounts are connected, or to connect a new app:

  1. Sign in to dropbox.com.
  2. Click your profile picture (or grey circle) in the upper-right corner.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. Click the Connected apps tab.
  5. If you want to connect a new account, click Connect to Google, Connect to Outlook, or Connect to Slack, and follow the prompts.

Note: Dropbox will only show calendar information according to the settings in your calendar. To ensure calendar details are shared appropriately, review your sharing and security settings within your Google or Outlook calendar apps.
