But how do you learn to use core features like syncing, sharing, and file backup? And once you master them, how do you find that one cool feature you didn’t even know existed (the one that solves some tedious task, and helps you get in flow)?

What’s needed is a simple way to learn: straightforward, effective resources that help you get the most from Dropbox, no matter your job to be done.

You’re in luck. We just launched a one-stop-shop for learning about Dropbox, as well as tons of new guides and trainings.

Here’s a look at just a few of the many tips you’ll find…

Master file requests with a self-guided video tutorial

With file requests, you can invite people to upload files directly to a folder in your Dropbox, even if they don’t have a Dropbox account. Collect vacation photos. Have students turn in assignments. Get teammates to submit work for a proposal. And a million other uses. In this self-guided video tutorial, learn how to get started with file requests, a great (but little known) Dropbox sharing feature.

Get to know Dropbox Paper with a virtual, instructor-led training

Paper is more than a doc—it’s a shared online doc workspace that brings creation and coordination together in one place. With Paper you can write, organize the work of teammates, give and get feedback, review designs, run meetings, and co-edit to your heart’s content. In this virtual, instructor-led training you’ll get an intro to Paper and all it can do.

Set screenshots to auto upload to Dropbox with this tips-and-tricks guide

Whether on a phone, tablet, or computer, Dropbox can automatically upload a screenshot, and automatically create a shared link to it. With screenshot uploads, your images are backed up to the cloud, available on any device you’ve linked to Dropbox, and instantly shareable. In this quick tips-and-tricks guide, get started with screenshot uploads and other advanced features.

Learning for all!

Theses guides work for all learning styles, from go-at-your-own-pace videos, to virtual walkthroughs with a live instructor, to quick guides with short gifs. They’re designed for all users: Business admins and team members, and anyone on a Basic, Plus, or Professional plan. And they’re available in multiple languages.
