Previously available just for Dropbox for Business users, the badge is available today for everyone on Dropbox — so you can work more efficiently with anyone, right from your Microsoft Office file.
We all know the pain of accidentally creating two different versions of the same file, because you saved changes at the same time as someone else. This usually means spending hours comparing both versions to compile the latest version — or even worse, trying to recreate hours of lost work.
The Dropbox badge
, available on Microsoft Excel, Word, and PowerPoint files stored in Dropbox, helps you put that painful experience in the past. It shows you if someone else is working on the same file — and whether they have unsaved edits — so you can coordinate with them before making any changes.
