Here are short instructions for how to set up synchronization between Office 365 Sharepoint and Dropbox.

NOTE: Syncing Sharepoint accounts requires a cloudHQ Business Plan.

  • If you do not need replication of sharing information, then you can skip this step. If you need to replicate sharing information between Office 365 SharePoint and Dropbox, then you first need to authorize cloudHQ to access your Office 365 domain and Dropbox for Business installation.
    Here are the steps. Note that these steps will just authorize cloudHQ to have access to the necessary domain information to correctly replicate sharing information between them:

    Install cloudHQ to your Office 365 domain :

    1. Go to https://www.cloudhq.net/add_office365_authorization (or go to “Users and Cloud Accounts” and click the Office 365 icon under “Add Your Organization’s Cloud Platforms”).
    2. After authorization is done, select your Office 365 admin user from the list of users and click “Add Selected Cloud Accounts”.

    Install cloudHQ to your Dropbox for Business domain :

    1. Go to https://www.cloudhq.net/add_office365_authorization (or go to “Users and Cloud Accounts” and click the Dropbox for Business icon under “Add Your Organization’s Cloud Platforms”)
    2. After authorization is done, select the user whose Dropbox account needs to be authorized in the list of users. Then click “Add Selected Cloud Accounts”.
