Imagine how much more you could get done if you could trade file-tracking time for hours devoted to mission-critical work. If you and your team have tried to save disk space by storing files in USB disks or external hard drives—or avoided syncing a folder from the cloud because it’s too big—you’ve created unnecessary walls between your work. Here’s how Smart Sync can help your team get more out of Dropbox by letting you put more into it.
Last week, we had the pleasure of talking with an inspiring group of musicians, designers, podcasters, and comedians at the 2017 South by Southwest Conference and Festivals in Austin, Texas. Our goal was to find out how some of the most brilliant minds in the world collaborate on their creative work. Here’s what we learned.
How does it feel to collaborate with your heroes? How do musicians work together to make songs that create a new genre and define a generation? At this year’s South by Southwest Conference and Festivals, we sat down with Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic at the Dropbox Studio to find out how groups with diverse points of view can work together to find common ground and create something that changes the world.
Ever wonder why working as a team takes you farther than flying solo? At this year’s South by Southwest Conference & Festivals, we’ll be asking influencers how they work as bands, podcasters, comedy teams, and more. We want to learn how they get into the creative zone, take inspiration from others, and combine their talents to create something they couldn’t on their own.
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.
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.
