Integration by Dropbox

Dropbox integrates with FreshBooks to make tracking business expenses ridiculously easy. You’ll know at a glance what you’re spending without the headache of spreadsheets or shoeboxes of receipts.

Integration Summary

  • Submit an expense image file stored in Dropbox directly to FreshBooks.

  • Create a new expense from the image file transferred over from Dropbox.

  • It can’t back-up expense receipt images from FreshBooks to Dropbox.

  • It can’t create multiple expenses from multiple image files  (expenses must be created individually).

About Dropbox

Dropbox is the world’s first smart workspace. We bring all your team’s content together while letting you use the tools you love. And we help cut through the clutter, surfacing what matters most.

  • Be organized. Bring traditional files, cloud content, Dropbox Paper docs, and web shortcuts together in one place—and work the way that works for you.
  • Stay focused. Personalized suggestions give you files and folders when you need them so you spend less time searching.
  • Get in sync. Coordinate with your team and push projects forward with the tools you use every day—all within Dropbox.
