No project goes perfectly—unless you’re using Dropbox. Learn how to get everyone on the same page, capture ideas and feedback, and get across the finish line, even when you’re strapped for time.
With half a billion users doing work in Dropbox, we’ve learned a lot about how complicated it can be to get things done. You’ve told us you need to work from everywhere, collaborate with lots of people, and use a bunch of specialized tools to bring your ideas to life. We want to make that easier—whether you work on your own, with a small team, or as part of a big company. That’s why we’re introducing new productivity tools to simplify, unify, and secure your work.
With 400 million people and 2.1 billion sharing connections around the world, Dropbox is quickly becoming one of the world’s largest collaboration platforms. One in three users joined because someone else invited them, while the average Dropbox for Business user is connected with seven other businesses through Dropbox. In short, Dropbox becomes even more valuable when your friends, family, and co-workers are using it along with you.
Over 400 million people love using Dropbox for everything from sharing family recipes to storing vacation photos. But for many, it’s more than just personal projects: over 60% of our Basic and Pro users tell us they’re using it primarily for work. And Dropbox really shines when you start collaborating on projects and sharing your work with others. With everyone and everything connected, ideas flow more freely and people create amazing things.
We often hear from users that getting files from other people can be a pain. Whether it’s photos from friends or docs from colleagues, collecting files usually means fishing through a sea of email attachments. We’ve given this problem a lot of thought, and today, we have a solution: a new feature called file requests.
If you’ve been using our desktop application, you know how magical the Dropbox folder is. Whenever you save a photo, doc, or video to the folder, it’s automatically backed up online and saved to all of your devices. But if you’re a new user, you may not know that you can do even more with your files — from sharing to commenting — right from the Dropbox folder on your computer.
