dropbox integration replacement
according to message on 01/04/2019 - dropbox is being replaced with C&D Desktop - is there a mac version for this forthcoming? strangely it mentions ios - however here we use macs and having to run a vm to use desktop is going to be quite a pain frankly. when is dropbox being retired?
Hi and thanks for your suggestion. Offering Mac support for our Click & Drop Desktop application is currently in the late stages of development, but we can’t offer a date of completion just yet. We apologise for the delay, and we will post further updates as soon as we are available.
Nice mac version just launched and I'm throwing labels at it to test it. It is definitely faster than dropbox and I love it's performance logging. From triggering a script which outputs an xlsx file to label coming out is about 5-6 seconds. In import history best time to import is showing around 3 seconds so additional seconds likely due to processing and sending to Print assist function.
I'm a bit saddened that it also disables the pasteboard so no copy pasting the password in but it's hopefully not needed to be entered frequently. Please PLEASE remove the no copy paste - it's also appeared in various places on the website but have enabled a plugin that worksaround it (absolute enable right click & copy) which should not be necessary. Passwords need to be long and complicated so copying and pasting is needed to avoid having to type them. Also password manager ensures they are cleared from the pasteboard after 30 seconds. I don't see what is trying to be achieved with this.
We've been told for some time now to use Click and Drop Desktop when phoning up support with an issue surrounding Dropbox. However on saying we are a 100% Mac based business we are told a Mac version is soon to be released. Having waited through-out 2019 and now in 2020 with you page saying ..."We are currently developing a macOS version and expect this to be released soon" for sometime now... How soon is soon? Really looking forward to removing the 'weak-link' from the chain we use to mass import orders into Click and Drop and rely on more purpose built tools to work with Click and Drop from our own store platform. Love to know the latest update on the release plans for this for the Mac. Thanks in advance for the update.
@Bill - there is a request you could upvote for a REST API which would be perfect (especially for linux server users with bespoke systems)

Rather than have to use C&D desktop we would really prefer to write our own integration. Where can we find the documentation for this?
Hi and thanks for your suggestion. We are currently developing a mac version, and so we will amend the help content.
There is no definite date yet for when we plan to discontinue our Dropbox integration, but we will let our customers know well in advance.
