Now that you've integrated your Dropbox account with Clio, you will likely have documents that you would like to move from Dropbox to Clio. While not automated, it is a fairly easy process.
Please note that if you have questions about Dropbox and its abilities/functions, you should contact Dropbox directly. The following steps serve as a general guide to assist you in the process of moving documents into the Clio/Dropbox integration. The steps shown are done from the web interface of Dropbox and you may choose to move the folders over in a slightly different way.
- Open your Dropbox account to view your folders. Once the integration is set up you will have a "Clio" folder as well as any existing folders/documents you have:
- Within the Clio folder you will see that Clio has automatically set up sub-folders that match the sub-folders in your Clio/Dropbox account. This is so that any documents placed in these sub-folders will be linked the appropriate client and matter.
- Now, go to a folder or document(s) in Dropbox that you want to move to the Clio integration. In my example, I would like all the sub-folders in my Oliver Banks documents moved. Select the items and choose "Move" or "Copy":
- When you do so, you will be asked where the files are supposed to go. Choose the Clio folder-appropriate client subfolder-appropriate matter:
- Now when you look at the matter sub-folder in Clio, you will see the sub-folders/documents that you have moved over: Follow these steps for all items you would like to move into the Clio/Dropbox integration.
Warning: Do not move or rename the Clio folder or any of its subfolders.
What if I want to move over something that is not associated to a client or matter?
You can do this, simply move/copy the item from Dropbox to Clio and the folder/documents will show up in your Clio/Dropbox list and will not be attached to a client/matter.
