Adding a Dropbox Source

You can add the content of your Dropbox account to your Coveo organization. Coveo indexes your Dropbox files to make them searchable only by you, the owner of the source. Your Dropbox source starts an incremental refresh every 15 minutes to index Dropbox file changes (addition, modification, or deletion).
