More and more people are using Dropbox for Business globally. And that means meeting a wider range of needs, whether it’s support for 20 languages, new offices, or compliance with international standards. So today, we’re excited to announce two partnerships that address the needs of one country in particular: Japan.
Last week, we told you about commenting, which will allow anyone to add feedback and discussions to files you’ve shared with them. We’re happy to announce that Dropbox for Business teams can start using commenting today, on the web and on iOS, through the early access program.
Collaboration is an important part of everyone’s job, so we’re always working to make Dropbox for Business an even better place to work together. Your Dropbox should be more than just the home for all your files — it should be the home for all the conversations and activity surrounding your work. Today we’re bringing this power to Dropbox with two entirely new workflows that will help you communicate and coordinate your work.
Delivering the features customers need to easily manage Dropbox for Business is a top priority for us. Today, we’re excited to bring one such feature — groups functionality — to all Dropbox for Business customers. Now any team can use groups to create and manage lists of members within Dropbox and easily give them access to specific folders. Plus, team admins can keep groups synced with Active Directory (AD) data.
Credit cards, you’ve got company. With the help of global payments provider Adyen, European businesses can now pay for Dropbox with direct debit, one of the most popular payment methods in Europe. Starting today, users in 12 European countries — Germany, Austria, Belgium, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Cyprus, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain — will see direct debit as a payment option, and we’ll be adding more European payment methods in the next few months.
It’s always been our mission to make Dropbox for Business the best place to get work done. That means helping you be productive whether you’re in the office or on the go — even in the native applications that power your business. Today, we’re delivering the first phase of Project Harmony to our Dropbox for Business early access program, giving you a new way to collaborate right from the apps that power your work.
