Do trains that go through tunnels with no cell signal give you separation anxiety? Ever been halfway through a document review when you had to leave the office to catch a bus with no Wi-Fi? When you count on your travel time to be a productive part of your workday, being offline at the wrong time can be a frustrating interruption. So today, we’re introducing Dropbox mobile offline folders, a new premium feature that lets you keep working on your phone no matter where you are.
Last year, we were very proud that Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI), awarded Dropbox a perfect score for LGBTQ equality in the workplace. Today, we’re happy to announce that we have achieved that perfect score again for 2017, and that Fortune Great Places to Work has named us a Best Workplace for Diversity, as well as a Best Workplace for Asian Americans. These recognitions underscore our commitment to creating a diverse, inclusive, and supportive community at Dropbox.
Did you know knowledge workers spend over 60% of their time in meetings, according to a 2013 study?

So we created Dropbox Paper, a simple, powerful way for teams to work together. With Paper, your team has one central place to create and find the info they need, including meeting notes. Here are three simple ways you can use Paper to run a tight, efficient—and valuable—meeting.
