Link to a Dropbox File

Preceden does not support file uploads but you can upload files to other cloud services and link to those files from your event notes.

Here's how to do that with Dropbox:

1. Get a link to your file

If you're on a Mac, you can right click the file name in Dropbox and click Share...:

(And if you're not on a Mac, the process will be similar whether you're using Windows or the Dropbox web app.)

Next, click the Create Link icon:

Dropbox will then create a link to this file and you can click Copy Link to copy it to your clipboard:

The URL will look something like this:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/01mt4kn66ohwrr7/Meeting%20Notes.pdf?dl=0

Note that anyone who knows this URL will be able to access your file, but in practice it's impossible to guess so the file is private unless you share the URL with someone else (like by linking to it from a Preceden timeline).

2. Add a link to it from an event

You can then add this as a link from your event notes in Preceden.

For example, to add a named link to it you could use markdown like so:

[Download Meeting Notes](https://www.dropbox.com/s/01mt4kn66ohwrr7/Meeting%20Notes.pdf?dl=0)<br>

And it will then display in Preceden:
