To access and upload files from Dropbox, you need to authenticate with your Dropbox account, accept permissions, and begin uploading. Gigasheet is designed to handle large files that are too big for other applications, so bring those big data sets!
Adding data to Gigasheet is as simple is clicking the Add Data button. Your first time into Gigasheet, you will see an empty file list and the Add Data button will be front and center. After that, you can click the +NEW button in the top right corner of the files page and then select "File Upload".
To connect Dropbox, select "Dropbox" from the upload menu and you will be prompted to “Connect to Dropbox”.
Sign in to your Dropbox account and a notifications page will appear saying "Before you connect this app..". Hit "Continue" to proceed to the permissions page where you can click "Allow" to grant Gigasheet permission to access Dropbox.
The permissions are necessary for you to upload your files to Gigasheet from within our website. Gigasheet does not access data other than the files/folders uploaded by you.
Once permissions are accepted, you will be able to select files using the checkbox and then click "Select".
Fun Fact: You can upload multiple files and folders to Gigasheet from your Drive by selecting as many files as you’d like. The “Select” button will show the number of selected files.
