5 productivity hacks using Dropbox for Business


Published on June 03, 2014

We all know that Dropbox can make you more productive. And when the whole team is using Dropbox for Business, that’s when efficiency and collaboration really take off.

So how, exactly, does Dropbox make your team more productive? For starters, think of all the time employees currently spend emailing documents, waiting until they get back on their company laptop to finish a project, and checking to make sure they’re using the most up-to-date version of a file. With Dropbox for Business, that all turns into time spent actually getting work done.

But even beyond that, there are hundreds (if not thousands!) of ways to put Dropbox to work for your team. We’ve compiled some of our favorites here; try out one or two (or all five) and feel free to tweak them according to what works best for your team.

1. Make recurring meetings actually productive.

Let’s face it, meetings are often not as useful as they can be — and that’s especially the case with recurring meetings. Make the most of your meeting time by keeping everyone on the same page using shared folders. With a dedicated shared folder for recurring meetings, collaborators can upload the latest documents in advance, ensuring that all team members can prep beforehand. If there’s more than one document per meeting — like prep and follow up — you can create sub-folders for each date.
