More and more people are choosing to work for themselves, whether as business consultants or creative pros. But doing everything yourself can be a challenge. Putting your best foot forward isn’t always easy, and dealing with all the busywork—like managing files and sending follow-up emails—can eat into your creative flow. That’s why we’re launching Dropbox Professional, a new plan that lets you store, share, and track your work from one place. It’s designed specifically for independent workers, and it comes with two new features: Dropbox Showcase and Dropbox Smart Sync.
iOS 11 is on its way, and we’ve been hard at work building new capabilities for our users. With Dropbox support for the new Files app, HEIF photos, and HEVC video, you’ll save time and be able to collaborate from anywhere more easily.
Today’s teams work together constantly, whether they’re brainstorming ideas, delegating tasks, or providing feedback. But that often means they have to keep switching windows and hopping between different software, which winds up creating more busywork. Shouldn’t a team’s tools get out of the way, helping them stay focused on the work itself? With this in mind, we’re announcing a new integration between Dropbox Paper—the single space for your team to create and share work—and Slack, a digital workplace that connects you to the people and tools you work with everyday.
Our security teams work hard behind the scenes to help keep your Dropbox secure. But did you know that there are also easy steps that you can take to protect yourself? Today, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of the security checkup tool to help you improve your account security in only a few minutes.
For the 15,000 people attending Cannes Lions, the festival offers a dizzying itinerary. There’s a week-long educational program, more than 600 speakers, and constant opportunities to network with the world’s most creative people. For those unable to attend, the press fills the void. More than 700 journalists descend upon Cannes, France to tell the festival’s story to the wider world. And this year, Dropbox Paper will play a key role in helping those journalists get the information they need.
Whether you’re organizing photos from a cover shoot or reviewing logo design options, working with images and multimedia projects should be inspiring, not frustrating. We’ve built some new features in Dropbox Paper that make it easier for teams to review ideas, provide feedback, and add context to projects that include photos and designs.
