, half of the workers in the US have jobs that are at least partially suited to working outside the office. Think of it as being unchained from your desk—and not a work-til-you-drop lifestyle. Want to be able to check in quickly while you’re at a coffee shop, or on a train, or maybe just going outside for a breath of fresh air? That’s the kind of flexibility we want everyone to have. It’s part of our mission to unleash the world’s creative energy by designing a more enlightened way of working. So we’ve introduced new features to help you keep work moving from anywhere. With the latest additions to the Dropbox mobile app, you’ll be able to:
Stay up to date
All too often, the clutter that surrounds our work gets in the way of figuring out what to do next. That’s the idea behind our file activity feature, which helps you stay up to date on your work. Starting today, we’re bringing file activity together with file previews in our mobile app. Now, when you preview a file in your Dropbox, one tap will pull up a list of events, including edits, shares, and—for
users—viewer history. File activity is great for getting a quick pulse on how your work’s moving along, without disrupting your team’s flow.
We’ve also brought that idea—helping you keep work moving without needing to drop everything—to the teamwork features in our mobile app. Starting today, you’ll see a streamlined file preview design that lets you easily comment right alongside your content. At the bottom of any file preview, you can access teammates' feedback, add your own, and get file activity updates. We’ve also made sharing buttons more prominent throughout the app, so you can quickly and easily send your work over to the people who need it.
