What is Dropbox and what does the integration do?
Dropbox simplifies your work, with a central place to access and share files. They’re easy to find and safely synced across all your devices—so you can access them anytime, anywhere. Dropbox is built for creative collaboration. Share a big file—PowerPoint, Photoshop, Sketch—with anyone. You’ve all got the right version, and everybody’s on the same page.
The Dropbox integration for Litmos can be used by Administrators to link content from Dropbox into a course as a new course module. This function allows files and folders that are stored and viewed on Dropbox, to automatically update the module content that is linked into Litmos from Dropbox.
Important note: The Dropbox integration does not support custom domains. In order to use this integration you will need to have a *.litmos.com domain.
