Adding A Script From Dropbox

icon-dropboxSometimes, scripts are so large that they can’t be sent to Rehearsal® Pro via email.

This is usually due to them being scanned in at too high a quality level than required, resulting in very large file sizes. Users then resort to using a cloud service, like Dropbox, to upload the script and send a link to the file.

Simply sending a link to a file you have stored (or have been given access to) in Dropbox won’t be visible to our servers. Don’t send an email to your script+username address with a Dropbox link – it won’t work.

You either need to attach the actual PDF of the script, or, if the script is too large to attach, follow the step-by-step directions below for adding the script from Dropbox:

  1. Make sure you have the Dropbox app. You can get it from the iTunes App Store. It’s free.
  2. Using the Dropbox app, upload your script and view it (or view a script you’ve been given access to) on your iPhone or iPad.
  3. Tap on the three-dot menu icon in the upper right, then choose Export from the list of options.
  4. On the lower row of icons, tap on the icon that looks like the App Store, labeled Open in.
  5. Look for the Rehearsal® Pro icon in the list of apps, labeled Copy to Rehearsal® Pro, then tap on it to add your script.
  6. You’ll be immediately transferred to the script in Rehearsal® Pro, already open the Add New Script area. Tap the Add button in the upper right hand corner to add it to your library of scripts.
