We’re thrilled to announce that Nicholas Jitkoff is joining Dropbox as our VP of Design! Nicholas joins us from Google where he led the work of the Material Design team, iterating with product groups across the company to create a coherent design language for Google’s suite of products.
We built Dropbox Paper to bring people and ideas together, but we also wanted to help teams love the way they work. That’s why each Paper feature is designed to make work more fun, more collaborative, and less of a chore. With that in mind, here are three examples of how Paper can help you save time and skip the busywork.
In today’s workplace, people spend 61% of their time managing work rather than doing it. That’s the equivalent of three days a week searching for information, slogging through emails, and navigating teamwork. But what if it didn’t have to be like that? We want to bring that 61% as close to zero as possible. So we’re building products that make it easier to find the information you need, stay up to date on projects, and work more seamlessly as a team. And today, we have the first of those products and features ready for you.
Isn’t it great when you find your groove, and you’re pounding out ideas like a machine? Poking through toolbars and menus to find formatting options, though, can break your train of thought—and keep you from capturing those brilliant ideas. We’ve been there. So we added all kinds of keyboard shortcuts to Dropbox Paper to keep your fingers on the home row—and your mind focused. Here are 10 to get you started.
The new year is your clean slate. Whether you’re starting a new job, kicking off a new project, or working with a new client, this is the perfect time to try new tools that can make your team more productive. Here’s how Dropbox Paper can help.
We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to simplify and strengthen security. In addition to continuous infrastructure enhancements, we’ve created a number of tools to help users and teams better protect their information on Dropbox. That includes support for cutting edge technologies like Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) security keys, which we rolled out in 2015. Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be teaming up with Intel this year to bring built-in U2F support to Dropbox users on 7th Generation Core processors.
