Following the steps outlined below, you’ll be able to save any of the attachments included with your Gmail messages straight to Dropbox.
- To get started, head over to https://www.insynchq.com/gmail and click the Sign in with your Gmail account button at the bottom of the page.
- You’ll be redirected to your Google accounts page where you’ll need to grant access to Insynchq.com – make sure that Remember this approval is checked, and then click the Allow button.
- On your insync page you’ll need to add an account – so click the Dropbox button.
- This time you’ll be redirected to your Dropbox page, where you’ll need to grant access for Insync on your Dropbox account. Click the Allow button.
- Finally, set a label to use in Gmail. The default label of @Dropbox is perfect – but you can use anything you’d like. Click the Set label button when you’re done.
- At this point there should be a “Connected service” on your Insync page (see the image below – yours won’t be identical but it will be close).
- Now open up your Gmail. Locate an email that has an attachment you’d like to save to Dropbox. You can either “move” the email to your @Dropbox label, as illustrated in the image below…
- or you can simply apply the @Dropbox label to the email (which means it will remain in your Inbox, but also be included in your @Dropbox “folder”, and thus downloaded to Dropbox).
- Once you’ve applied the @Dropbox label to an email with an attachment, your Dropbox folder will automatically create a sub-folder titled Attachments.
- Inside of that folder you’ll find additional folders. Each will be named using the email addresses of people who have sent you messages, that have attachments, that you applied the @Dropbox label to.
- Open one of those folders, and you’ll find the attachment happily waiting for you :)
- Going forward, all you need to do is apply that @Dropbox label to any messages with attachments, and those attachments will be automatically sent to Dropbox. That’s it!
