Read your Flow documents offline - Flow Integration with Dropbox

Last Updated: Nov 24, 2014 10:46AM EST
Flow allows you to view and read your documents without being connected to the internet using a service called Dropbox.   You’ll need to download the Dropbox installer and create a Dropbox account which you will link to your Flow account.
To link Flow to Dropbox:
  1. Log into Flow.  
  1. Click your  name, then select “Settings” from the list of options.  
  1. In the "General" section, scroll down until you see a section of the page called “Dropbox”.  Click the “Connect” button.

  1. If you have a Dropbox account, enter your login credentials and click “Sign in”.  If you are new to Dropbox, click the “create an account” link on the Dropbox site and download and install Dropbox on your computer.
  1. You’ll be asked to give Flow permission to create a folder in your Dropbox called “ProQuest Flow” in your Apps folder.  This is where Flow will place a copy of your articles.
You can only store your own articles in Dropbox – articles in shared collections are not included.  All of your articles (regardless of what Collection they are filed in) are saved to your ProQuest Flow dropbox in your Apps folder.
After you first set up your connection from Flow to Dropbox, newly uploaded documents  you save to Flow are automatically saved in Dropbox as well as.  When you remove a document from your Flow library, we’ll also remove it from Dropbox as well.
To disconnect your Flow account from Dropbox:
  1. Log in to Flow.
  1. Click your name, then select “Settings”.
  1. In the "General" area, scroll down and click the “Unlink” button in the Dropbox area of the page.
