  • Sharing files
  • Saving older versions of each file
  • Sharing files with external users by link
  • Sharing files with people outside your organization can be troublesome for external users, many report difficulties accessing the files
  • The Paper app is a great idea but very poor in features, making it useless
  • Changing the place you store your data locally could be difficult and lengthy

  • Sync all the node structure on every clients.
  • Accessible from mobile, plus can store a copy of important files locally to use it when you are not online or out of network.
  • Every modification made when disconnected where synchronized at next time you are online.
  • Sync every type of file, without doubt.
  • No possibility of overwriting when two users access the same document.
  • Implementation with operative system was perfect, scan document was the next evolution we appreciate.
  • Some characters -like the extended emoji- are not good for file names.
  • Notification are not customizable.
  • Sync across local network must be perfection-able.

  • Document sharing with external parties.
  • Accessible over various devices so handy if you don't have your own machine, as long as you use Single Sign on and 2FA.
  • Co-editing of documents is a great feature.
  • Sometimes it can feel a lesser experience when accessing Dropbox Business through windows explorer compared to web access. Creating parity between the two so it looks the same would be an improvement but I would imagine it's designed more to access straight from a browser.

  • It has top-notch security, which is highly appreciated by my clients.
  • The history feature saved us numerous amounts of time from re-doing work.
  • Ability to track who made changes to a document, and comment on it helped us with keeping content organized and avoiding conflicts.
  • Recently we started integrating Dropbox into other product management and communication tools such as Slack and Monday. Works really good.
  • Once we had a major problem where one of the employee accidentally deleted lots of data and had to restore. It appears that this mechanism work much less effective than restoring a group of files. Eventually it took Dropbox about 2 months with resolving the issue, and us additional 2 weeks of cleanup afterwards.
  • Dropbox is getting very expensive and there are today some alternatives that have better price to value ratio.

  • Amazing app makes it so easy to work on your files from anywhere using your phone
  • Their customer support is very knowledgeable and are very responsive
  • Versioning of files through "History" feature helps a lot while multiple people are working on files
  • File preview doesn't work well with dropbox
  • Not supported by many companies and hence is blocked in many corporate networks
  • Doesnt integrate well with Microsoft's Apps natively and most of the time have to use third party plugins which are at most companies not supported

  • Sharing large files between clients
  • Streamline the sharing process of assets
  • Makes integrating new clients information and assets seamless
  • Not as user friendly as google drive or other cloud based softwares
  • I wish that it was integrated into your browser like google drive but I am not sure if that is possible
  • I would say that it works great for what is advertised but there are better options out there in my opinion.
