Yes, there is an alternative way to use the update page as an inline page instead of a button. 

Users can create a new Visualforce page with a standard controller with the iframe code as follows and add it as an inline page on the respective page layout.

The following example shows the inline page for Contact Object: 

  • Create a visualforce page and provide the name.
  • Add the following code and hit save.
<apex:page showHeader="false" sidebar="false"  title="Upload Cloud Documents" tabStyle="DragDropToCloud__Cloud_Documents__c" standardStylesheets="false" docType="html-5.0" standardController="Contact">
    <apex:iframe src="/apex/DragDropToCloud__DragDropUploader?id={!}&isdtp=mn"/> 

You can further customize the page with the default bucket, folder name, or access type pre-selected by adding the following URL parameters in the iframe URL:

  • newBucket - use this URL parameter to set the default bucket
  • newFolder - use this URL parameter to set the default folder name
  • accesslevel - use this URL parameter to set the default access level.

The resultant URL looks like - /apex/DragDropToCloud__DragDropUploader?id={!}&isdtp=mn&newBucket={bucket_name}&newFolder={folder_name}&accesslevel=private


  1. The bucket, folder, and access level selection settings must be enabled on the settings page in order to use these parameters. 
  1. Bucket selection is available beginning with version 2.7.
