These days there are hundreds of tools and services to help people and teams get work done. But as a result, with information scattered across all those different platforms, it can be surprisingly difficult to find what you need. Whether you’re planning a work event or remodeling your kitchen, you likely have to look in a handful of places just to find what you’re looking for.
Today, that gets a little simpler.
Now, you can drag and drop URLs into your Dropbox — on the web and on your desktop — and open them on any of your devices. This means you can take your bookmarks anywhere, instead of having them confined to a certain browser on a certain computer. But it also means you can organize all your information, no matter the format, into Dropbox folders — so your information is in one central place.
For example, let’s say you’re planning an event. Your event agency uses Word documents, and your marketing team puts everything in an online company wiki. Instead of checking two (or more) different locations for the information you need, you can put everything in a dedicated Dropbox folder that’s shared with the team — so your wiki URLs are next to your Word docs, which are next to the vendor invoices and the invite design mockups — and everyone can have easy access to all the files they need, on all their devices, from that one Dropbox folder.
This feature is also great for students, who can organize and store URLs of academic sources during research — for reading on the go or for future reference when drafting a paper.
