Dropbox is one alternative to storing images and documents in the A to Z Folder. An internet connection is required. Be sure to address HIPAA-compliance issues. See HIPAA

Note: Dropbox and SFTP were disabled in 16.3.47 and 16.4.19 due to extensive missing functionality. Missing functionality has been implemented in versions 17.1 and greater.
