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.
In the past 30 days, more than 53 million edits were made to design files stored in Dropbox — so it’s no surprise that creative professionals around the world rely on Dropbox as an integral part of their day-to-day workflows.

Say you’re in the middle of booking a flight and you want to double-check that you have the right dates, or you’re about to publish a blog post and you want to confirm with a coworker that an image is being displayed correctly.

When you store your stuff in Dropbox, you know it’s always safe and backed up. But did you know that every file you save to your Dropbox can also be shared quickly? Just use a shared link. Here’s how.
We’re always looking for new ways to make Dropbox work better with the tools you use every day. For many of you, Gmail is one of those tools, helping you share information and stay connected. That’s why we recently built an extension for your Chrome browser that lets you attach Dropbox files right from your Gmail account. Today, we have a new version with improvements based on feedback from early users.
Whether you’re collaborating on a business proposal or putting together a vacation itinerary, working with multiple people can be difficult. It can involve lots of back and forth conversations, scattered across email threads and chat windows. And in the process, feedback can get lost and it can take ages to get everyone on the same page. Today we’re simplifying that process. With comments, you can now have conversations around Dropbox files, both on the files you own and the files people share with you.
