It might seem like the creative process begins with a brainstorm and ends with a presentation. But in reality, creating the asset is just the first step. It’s everything that happens after that determines whether the idea will fly. And at every stage of the content lifecycle—creating, sharing, reviewing, discussing, and iterating—there’s a team of contributors who shape and refine it. The hard part is making sure all those contributions build the idea up, and don’t whittle it down. To make the reviewing and iterating stages of the process easier, Dropbox is introducing new previews capabilities. Here’s how they can help your team save time and drive work forward.
By some estimates, half of the workers in the US have jobs that are at least partially suited to working outside the office. Think of it as being unchained from your desk—and not a work-til-you-drop lifestyle. Want to be able to check in quickly while you’re at a coffee shop, or on a train, or maybe just going outside for a breath of fresh air? That’s the kind of flexibility we want everyone to have. It’s part of our mission to unleash the world’s creative energy by designing a more enlightened way of working. So we’ve introduced new features to help you keep work moving from anywhere. With the latest additions to the Dropbox mobile app, you’ll be able to:
Team meeting notes, creative briefs, project plans: You’re probably using the same types of docs over and over again. But pulling one together—tracking down the last doc, copying and pasting into a new one, stripping out the old project’s info—is an annoying, repetitive chore. So today, we’re making your work easier by introducing one of the most requested Dropbox Paper features: the ability to turn any doc into a shareable template.
We’re rolling out new refinements in Dropbox Showcase for Professional users. Read more on the Dropbox Business Blog.
Expanding on our partnership with Adobe, we’re introducing a new Adobe Creative Cloud integration that helps you stay in your creative flow by making it easier to find your latest Adobe XD document on Dropbox. In addition to previewing Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator files stored in Dropbox, users can now see a quick preview of files created in XD—Adobe’s latest solution for designing, prototyping, and sharing user experiences. These previews can be seen whether you’re working from dropbox.com or our mobile apps.
If you add up all the time you spend responding to emails, searching for files, and tracking down feedback, how much of your day is left for the work you want to do? We want to help take away those chores, so you can focus on what matters. That’s why we’re making viewer info available to all Dropbox users, starting today. Here’s how it can help you save time and keep projects moving forward.
