If you’re a designer, you work with a lot of tools every day. So many, in fact, that some days it feels like switching between the tools is your second job. When you’re trying to illustrate the story of an experience you’re creating, though, you rely on each one of those tools for a different reason—whether it’s creating or prototyping. That’s why designers need a simple way to bring all their tools together in one place. As a designer on the Dropbox Paper team, I know firsthand how Paper’s new integrations have helped make my job easier. So today, I want to show you they can help your team create and share early ideas.
Everyone has their own favorite way to communicate. And many prefer different tools for different tasks. That’s why Dropbox believes that the better your apps work together, the easier your job will be. Millions of people use Slack to connect with the people and tools they work with every day, no matter where they are or what they do. Dropbox partnered with Slack to provide a more seamless experience, so work can be shared directly with teammates where they’re already communicating. Here’s how the integration helps simplify team collaboration.
Designers and architects don’t have an easy job. Beyond the work it takes to translate ideas into interior designs or blueprints into beautiful buildings, you have to navigate the murky waters of opinion. You have to call upon Zen-like patience to deal with brutally blunt criticism while somehow turning layers of feedback into an idea everyone approves. But there is a way to make the approval process feel more like conversation than conflict. It’s all about choosing tools that let your whole team work together seamlessly. Here’s how to start.
At Dropbox, we’re big believers in the benefits of an open creative process. When it comes to collaboration, transparency is the key to improving team communication, removing silos, and streamlining workflows. Chances are, the diverse departments throughout your company are using a number of tools to gather insights. And integrating those tools can be the key to enabling transparency. Here’s how project managers can leverage those integrations to make that process less complicated.
Since 2014, Dropbox has been working with Microsoft to help our users simplify the way they work. Today, we’re excited to announce new integrations with Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Office 365 that mark the latest milestone in our long-term collaboration. Here’s how we’ll be bringing Dropbox content to Teams, the new chat-based workspace in Office 365, and to Microsoft Office users on desktop.
Your typical day likely involves a number of apps that you use to stay on the same page with team members. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to bring the work in your Dropbox account to those platforms. So today, we’re teaming up with Facebook to let you access files from Dropbox directly in Workplace.
