Better teams make better businesses. But as teamwork has become more fluid, our tools haven’t kept up. Instead of bringing teams together, they’re siloing the content those teams create. Let’s face it—collaboration has become a chore. We want to bring back the joy of working together. As we head into the next chapter of file sync and share, we’re excited to announce new features that make collaboration simple and efficient.
Last August, we announced the open beta for Dropbox Paper, a flexible workspace designed to help teams grow ideas together, from start to finish. To help admins protect company data while their teams collaborate and share docs, we extended core AdminX controls from Dropbox Business to Paper. Today, we’ll take a closer look at how these new tools give Dropbox Business customers more visibility and control over the way company info is accessed and shared in Paper.
There was a time when the idea of one person having multiple computers was a far-off theoretical concept. But today, computers, which now include mobile devices like phones and tablets, are dramatically more common. Having multiple devices—sometimes more than one of each type—is often the norm, which presents a unique challenge. Since IT needs at least some control over every device storing business data, limiting the number of devices with access is essential. Today, we’ll take a look at how we’re answering this need with our recently introduced device approvals feature.
Last year, we kicked off an internal initiative called AdminX. Our goal: reimagine the IT admin experience for teams using Dropbox. We’re making this happen by taking the same “user-first” design approach that’s helped us grow to half a billion registered users, and applying it to our admin tools. AdminX is all about empowering IT—to be champions for users, and to help them maintain security, control, and visibility—for collaboration at scale. We’re excited to introduce the first wave of AdminX tools today.
Our domain management tools are now available to all Dropbox Business and Dropbox Enterprise customers. Hear what Michael Cook, IT admin for The Richards Group, has to say about these powerful admin features.
When we first launched groups functionality to Dropbox Business users, our goal was straightforward: to simplify team management. Since then, it’s been helping users streamline collaboration and organize all kinds of projects on Dropbox. Today, we’re adding capabilities for admins—and giving businesses even more control over team organization—with the introduction of company-managed groups.
