Morro ECHO Dropbox is a file sharing service which utilizes Dropbox to share files with your external friends or customers. You are not required to create an account in the Morro Cloud Manager to share files.

1. Register the Dropbox account in the panel on the right

  1. Click ADD ACCOUNT to begin the process.
    Morro Data will link to Dropbox using their API. Enter a name for the root folder in the Dropbox account for the Morro Data shares. Each share will be added as a sub-folder to the Folder specified in this step. The default folder is Morro Echo.

  2. Click NEXT to authenticate the account.
    If an account is already authenticated via the browser (you have logged into Dropbox from the current browser), it will ask for permission to add the app Morro Echo to the account. Otherwise, it will prompt you for the username and password for the Dropbox account you want to link to Morro Data.

In the following example, the Dropbox account is added to the Morro Echo App in the root folder "Morro Echo".

In the Dropbox Account page, choose the tab "Connected Apps" to see the connected App as "Morro Echo".

A folder named "Morro Echo" is automatically created in Dropbox.


2. Setup Shares to Sync with ECHO

In File System page, select the share to sync with ECHO. 

  1. Choose the share to open the Share detail panel.
  2. In section "ECHO", use the dropdown list to select the ECHO account to which the Share will sync.

  3. Click SAVE to complete the ECHO set up and the Share is showing an 'e' for ECHO enabled.  

In the example above, the name of the selected Share is Sales.  Files between Sales and the Dropbox top level folder /Morro Echo/Sales will mirror each other.

Allow some time for mirroring to complete if files already exist in either share.

You can use the Dropbox app to share files with your friends, customers and partners.

Note: Files must be added to the folder corresponding to the share name. Files placed in the top level folder "Morro Echo" will not be synced to the Morro Global File System.
