The newest addition by Apination is automatic sync of documents and files between loops in dotloop and your Dropbox account.
This integration automatically keeps the file documents added to your loops in sync with your Dropbox. This helps you automate the backup of all the loop’s related documents. The sync creates a folder with the loop’s name and then copies and organizes the files within it as they are arranged in loops. This includes all the subfolders and documents within them. As you update the files in your loop, they are automatically updated in your Dropbox.
The integration also works in reverse from Dropbox to dotloop. While working in Dropbox, you can add a new pdf files to a loop folder. The integration will sync them into your loop.
