We’re all hoarders and collectors of data. But why don’t we delete anything? What compels us to keep files we haven’t opened in years, even when they take up valuable hard drive space? For photographers, designers, recording engineers, and everyone else who creates content for a living, those files are more than archives. They’re the seeds of ideas that could bloom into a new project. But if those seeds of inspiration can’t be found, they can’t grow into anything new. Here’s how Smart Sync can turn your archived data into a library you can search through to retrieve exactly what you need, right when you need it.
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.
Have you ever emailed a batch of files to a client, only to find out they completely overlooked your message? Or that they only downloaded the first of five attachments? Or that your work got forwarded along without your name or attribution?
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.
From your light bulb moment to final presentation, the creative process isn’t always a smooth road. The trick is to avoid as many bumps and curves as you can. So we’ve been working on ways to help you find what you need to keep work flowing between you and your collaborators. Today, we’re unveiling new features that make it easier to locate your most frequently used files, stay on top of projects, and work seamlessly as a team. Now everything you need is in one place, with up-to-date, easy-to-find information. Here’s what’s new.
