Over 400 million people love using Dropbox for everything from sharing family recipes to storing vacation photos. But for many, it’s more than just personal projects: over 60% of our Basic and Pro users tell us they’re using it primarily for work. And Dropbox really shines when you start collaborating on projects and sharing your work with others. With everyone and everything connected, ideas flow more freely and people create amazing things.
Sending files to lots of people — whether it’s an email attachment or a shared link in Dropbox — is generally straightforward. But collecting files from lots of people wasn’t always as easy. That is until now, with our recently introduced file requests feature. Just create a request, send out the link, and watch the files pour into your Dropbox. If you’re looking to get the most out of file requests, we have a few tips to help you collect like a pro.

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.
In 2011, when Dropbox had just 35 employees, we held our first-ever Hack Week. It gave us a chance to get back to our roots: small, agile groups of creative Dropboxers solving exciting problems together. We transformed the office into a giant workshop, and turned the ideas that we’d been dreaming up into reality. Since then, we’ve grown to over 1,200 employees in offices around the world, and Hack Week has grown into a beloved annual tradition of exploring how we can make Dropbox better for our users.
At Dropbox, we don’t like boundaries — we think people make their best stuff when they’re given the creative freedom to pursue their wildest ideas.
