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.
If you’ve ever been locked out of your account, you know it can be a major frustration—especially when you have deadlines to meet, and people waiting on you to respond. The problem is, many users cannot reliably receive text messages or don’t keep track of emergency backup codes. And sometimes you don’t have your two-factor authentication code generator or U2F security key on hand. We work hard to make security easy, so we developed a new solution you can use as a backup in these situations. Starting today, you can also use the Dropbox mobile app to verify your identity.
If your work gets stalled in “hurry up and wait” mode, that ebb in your workflow can be especially frustrating when you have deadlines looming. The good news is, you don’t have to sit idle while you wait for files. Dropbox can help you collect them. Here are three examples of how our file requests feature lets you cast your net and reel in what you need to proceed.
When you’ve spent weeks refining and perfecting your designs, sending them off for review can be nerve wracking. It’s kind of like sending your kids off to college. Who knows how they’ll change while they’re away—or if you’ll recognize them when they return? Fortunately, Paper has new features that make it easier to send your “babies” out into the world. Next time you need to get feedback on your photos and designs, here are three ways to make the process less stressful and complicated.
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.
Sometimes you need more than text to tell your story. Whether you’re illustrating your point with colorful graphs or using pictures to personalize your presentation, there are many ways to bring your doc to life. But adding photos, videos, audio files, and social media posts shouldn’t slow your creative flow. That’s why we made it easy to embed all kinds of rich media into your Dropbox Paper docs. All you have to do is copy the URL and paste the link into your doc, and the content automatically appears on the page. Here are 8 ways to include movies, music, and movement in your Paper doc.
