The primary uses of Dropbox in our organization were (1) to have a cloud-based repository of all the files for current projects so they could collaborated on by multiple users, or by single users in multiple locations, (2) to have cloud-based backups of those same projects, and (3) to allow easy sharing of large files with people within and outside our organization.
  • It is a fast and reliable cloud file sharing system.
  • It integrates well with macOS, making it easy to share files, control whether files are in the cloud or local, see the current sync status for each file, and more, right from the Finder. It also supports macOS file meta (keywords, color tags, etc.).
  • It's web-based file previews work very well and support a wide selection of file types.
  • It has useful and intuitive annotation / commenting features for files.
  • For large teams or large file sizes, it can become expensive.
  • Annotation features may be too basic for some types of jobs.
For my company, Dropbox was nearly ideal. The main problem was the price. Our IT department could not justify keeping it for all departments, so in the end it was only specific users or departments that were using it. This led to some inconsistencies within the organization, as different people shared cloud files in different ways. However, for my department's needs, Dropbox was essential. It was the only service available to us that was fast enough, reliable enough, and full-featured enough for our needs. It is excellent for both cloud-based project collaboration and cloud-based file sharing.

For single-user setups, Dropbox may be overkill. There are cheaper or even free alternatives that may meet the needs of many users.

We use Dropbox as a temporary solution as we evaluate long-term file storage and sharing options. It is also being used as a secondary long-term file storage system while we are working from home and separated from the main file drive. Using Dropbox allows the team to collaborate on and share files without having to sign into a vpn or connect to a remote server, which can often be time consuming and slow due to internet speeds.
  • File storage - space considerations aside, it's easy to use and intuitive for this purpose
  • Collaboration - after adding this functionality a few years ago, Dropbox can now rival Microsoft Sharepoint or Google Docs for realtime collaboration between team members on documents and related files.
  • Ease of use - Dropbox is intuitive and mirrors other file storage systems in terms of folders, sub-folders, and navigation, meaning it is easy to find, store, and share whatever you need.
  • Multiple accounts: many of us have a personal account and a professional account. It could be easier to switch between them either in the Dropbox OS app or within the browser.
  • Security and permissions: I've found it difficult to manage permissions around hidden folders and security hierarchies. It's easy to share something to someone with the same permissions, but I've experienced instances where two people (myself included) have different names for the same folder but can't access each other's files, without explanation for why the permissions are different.
Dropbox is great for collaborative work while in the office but especially while many of us are working from home. The system is easy to navigate and intuitive for anyone familiar with basic computer file systems. It is also useful for keeping separate versions of files (compared to Google, for instance, which allows you to have multiple files with the same name within the same folder for some unknown reason).

Dropbox is a great cloud storage system that was utilized within my department for sharing files, collaboration, and large file storage. Because many of us have upgraded to MacBooks and to save money have smaller SSDs, as well as with the need for file sharing ramping up, an online storage system like this is very helpful.
  • Cloud based storage with easy access
  • Simple and easy to share files with other people
  • Easy to customize what files are stored locally or just online
  • Dropbox offers file sharing but lacks in true collaboration in some ways
  • From an organizational standpoint, Dropbox is a bit expensive
  • Because of the customization available, you need to know the program and the web client interface
Dropbox is a great cloud based storage system that is easy to use, readily customizable, and user friendly. For an organization that uses many large files, shares heavily between users, and needs constant access to their cloud based storage, Dropbox is a huge win.

For some organizations using Google Suites as an email client, because each user also includes GoogleDrive, Dropbox may be unnecessary.

Dropbox is used in our organization both for work related document storage and also personal document storage. It allows for the streamlined storage of documents in one place. It ensures that our documents can be stored and accessed securely and also found easily when needed. We are also able to share access with other parties when required.
  • Shared access
  • Document security
  • Volume and size of documents that can be stored
  • File organization is good
  • Better integration with Microsoft products - although it is OK.
Dropbox is great for any organization that needs to securely store and share documents. Through password protection document security is enhanced. Dropbox may not be as appropriate for an organization that is Microsoft based as OneDrive is fully integrated and automatically saves files. Dropbox is useful when an organization needs to store, share and give access to those outside the organization.

Firefilm Productions is a media production company, and as such[,] we work with large video files that often time need to be shared with multiple people at various distances. Snail-mailing an external hard drive used to be the only way to get these large files around [...] since they are too large for traditional email attachments. DropBox is used to more efficiently send these large files across the country so that distance plays no part in who we work with, or what job we can work on.
  • Dropbox app can be installed on multiple systems, allowing for multiplatform access to files.
  • Dropbox allows for large files to be sent digitally [...] and has tiered pricing to fit any budget.
  • Dropbox doesn't have a time limit on [its] files like some other competitors, allowing for file access at your own pace.
  • At one point 2 gigs [were] deemed enough for the "Free" version of Dropbox and its competition. However as even the most simple picture from a phone gets larger, 2 gigs might no longer be enough. Might want to increase the free size to adjust for file size inflation.
  • Dropbox's app is very presumptive of updating itself every time you log on to a system that it's installed on. I know that's a feature you can turn off, but the assumption to turn that feature on by default is annoying.
  • Dropbox could use a phone app function that would initiate a download to a designated computer hard drive. It would eliminate having to see the file on your phone, go to your computer, turn it on and then download the file.
The frustration of trying to compress files enough to get them to email or put them in the right format for a thumb drive is a thing of the past. I think anyone working with video, audio, or still[,] images in this day and age needs Dropbox to share files...period. There are competitors but they have downsides that Dropbox avoids, and the app that can be installed on any device is very [user-friendly] and functional.

We use Dropbox to coordinate documents between employees. It allows us to make sure that everyone has the latest and greatest version of forms and information.

It also serves as our cloud [backup] in the case of any calamity that would require us to restore our data. Dropbox keeps our [backups] up to date instantaneously.
  • Securing our data
  • Coordination between employees
  • Seemless integration with our Windows computers
  • Our repository has grown with time. Replicating the entire repository on a new machine takes a long time.
  • You can share with people outside of Dropbox. That can be confusing for people who don't use Dropbox.
  • It would be helpful to have better differentiation between personal and work files.
Dropbox is great if you are looking to keep files [synced] between employees in a small office. I'm not sure how well it would work in a large office setting. For our office of three people, it works great. I highly recommend trying them out. They integrate with Gmail (our email provider) and they have a free version that limits your cloud storage.

We are using Dropbox as a repository for large data files. It allows us to manage a single version of the truth with regard to data where many people from around the world may be working with the data. Dropbox allows the organization of data and associated files. It ensures the latest versioning and reduces redundant work. When working with groups around the world a single repository for information is critical. It allows “follow the sun” work where a group in North America can pick up on work done in Europe and pass their work to a group in Asia.
Dropbox has good security that can ensure management of sensitive or corporate data. This ensures a level of comfort with using facility for storage and management of data, analytical programs and results. User management can also ensure a role based access to data and results. This can ensure that the data and results are suitably managed and controlled.
Dropbox is easy to access and to set up. However, some planning is required to ensure a suitable layout and hierarchy. Planning is required for development of a suitable hierarchy and plan for layout of the repository. This is not dissimilar to the development of a database.
  • Easy to setup and begin using
  • Simple for end users to get started working with
  • Meets our needs in a single facility
  • Seems secure
  • Could use some examples of hierarchy layout
  • Could use some simple online training
[Dropbox is] well suited for a range of different files. One can easily group assisted files for a project. It is possible to maintain any projects simultaneously. It is possible to set up and maintain a user hierarchy for different access across many projects. It is very useful where teams may be spread out around the world.

Dropbox is used as a way to share documents, working files between teams regardless of the team physical location. It reduces the need for printing documents, saving energy and effort in sharing and submitting working files for approval. It provides an easy way to track all change history of a file and when you need to view whoever is responsible for the file. Every edit is well-recorded and tracked properly using Dropbox.
  • Create link to share file instantly
  • Grant access and permission to team member / clients to view/edit the file
  • Ability to track change history of the file
  • Syncing sometimes is slow if the file is large
  • Integrate with different messaging app would be nice (Team Chat, Skype)
  • Sometimes if multiple accessing / editing the same Microsoft Office file, it got stuck
Best scenario is to use for tracking project timeline and implementation. Instead of printing out the project charter, it can be submitted through dropbox. Approver can view the file and approve based on the change history recorded. Multiple members in the team can update project status in one file and update on Dropbox giving all teams visibility on the progress and therefore reducing the efforts in communication and reduce wasted time.

We use Dropbox for data and file sharing when conducting due diligence ahead of prospective mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures. Further, we often use it to share large file batches with outside advisors as needed. Dropbox is a functional solution for us given file-sharing size limitations on the Google Suite platform. Further, Dropbox has significantly increased its search-ability functionality which allows us to search large volumes of files quickly.
  • Sharing large files and multiple files with various internal and external parties
  • Searching large file batches quickly
  • Allowing external and internal parties to contribute to a data file across organizations
  • Integrates well with other enterprise softwares (Word, Adobe, etc.)
  • File text search functionality needs continued improvement
  • Dropbox file security and fraud prevention needs improvement
  • Dropbox should continue to integrate with email and enterprise software interfaces for ease of use
I would recommend Dropbox over most DMS sharing solutions because of its low cost (free for users under a certain size) and ease of use. I have found many professionals don't have immediate solutions when they run into large file sharing problems or don't have sophisticated experience with a DMS interface and Dropbox is very user-friendly for both groups.

Having cloud storage is not just important for sharing files and folders across devices but also for internal and external users without needing to email or send files through another cumbersome, insecure system. Dropbox allows us to organize and share content without fear of losing something or not having access to it from anywhere. We keep everything in Dropbox, from financial records to client account information. When we hire outside contractors, we can choose to share just a single file or folder so they have access to all information from the beginning. It's a great way to get larger files from designers without needing a file transfer service as well.
  • Ease of sharing files and folder both internally and externally
  • Rollback of several versions in case a file is modified by accident or overwritten
  • Trash management for files or folders that are accidentally deleted so they can be recovered painlessly
  • Smart sync so you don't need to worry about how much space is taken up on your device
  • Background syncing that happens without needing to do anything other than work
  • Though this hasn't been our experience, some contractors have had issues with files not syncing properly
  • Initial installation could be a bit more user friendly
  • Not a fan of the newest change that involves opening the Dropbox app instead of the folder by default
Dropbox has replaced typical hard drive storage for us, with all of our digital information stored there. For any company that has digital information, the ease of use and implementation is unmatched by other file storing and sharing services. To share one file, it's as easy as grabbing the share link. You can easily manage shared files and folders and rescind sharing rights at any time, making it possible to keep a tight hold on who has your data.

Dropbox is a wonderful tool we use for hosting images and pdfs. We also sometimes use it for sharing assets with our clients. We have several clients who primarily use Dropbox for their Asset Management, so we have become very familiar with how it all works.
  • Image and PDF hosting
  • Asset Management
  • Internal assistance tools
  • If you don't know where to go, it's hard to get a image/pdf URL that you can use for hosting
  • Sharing management doesn't seem to be as intuitive
Dropbox is great in general for anything and everything. It's an amazing asset management software. The versatility is great and I think it always gets the job done. If you're looking for just photo storage, then I would likely recommend a different service that is more affordable and better suited for only photos.

Dropbox is being used by our sales/transactions department. It helps us keep all information in an organized cloud storage that is easy to access anywhere. Dropbox allows us to specifically store photos of the properties that we get and we can link it to our crm for easy access. It saves us storage on Google Drive as well.
  • Access to files, pictures, videos, and others are easily done through Dropbox
  • The dropbox app is extremely useful and intuitive
  • The speed of upload and download of files are much quicker with dropbox
  • Dropbox can be quite expensive, especially when compared to Google Drive
  • Some API features are missing on lower tier plans
Dropbox is great for storing files online safely and quickly. It can also be very beneficial since Dropbox has eSign capabilities as well-meaning you can have documents that are within dropbox sent and signed by another party. This eliminates you having to pay for 2 softwares like Docusign or HelloSign, and you get that all in one with Dropbox.

My organization uses Dropbox to set up shared folders with our clients to enable [...] easy sharing of documents and images without [being] constrained by the file size limits or organizational issues presented by sharing files over email. This allows us to have a common repository of relevant files [...] shared with a team working on a project, [and] an effective archive of elements for later review.
  • Sharing between users
  • Fast syncing
  • Data integrity
  • Access control
  • UI can use some work, as at times it's not intuitive
  • Users still have confusion between what's living on the Dropbox cloud vs. what's stored locally on their devices
Dropbox remains my go-to file sharing service all these years later. It's easy to implement and operate, and at the end of the day, it just works. If you're looking to share files between your personal devices, or with other users, Dropbox gets the job done with ease.

Our whole team of 5 uses Dropbox to manage our documents, and keep everything organized. It helps us use a common system, allows us to have a system whereby we all have access to our documents and resources. It addresses the problem of file storage, management, collaboration across the entire team.
  • Syncing
  • Comments
  • File Storage
  • Collaborative
  • Messaging
  • File Sharing
It is well suited for our team size, I'm not sure if it becomes more complicated as a team gets larger and more complex. It does file storage well, allows us to work from either Dropbox Desktop or web browser. I think where it might be less appropriate: in situations where you want to have more cohesiveness across your products: I.e. if you are primarily Microsoft, using OneDrive as it's part of the suite.

This product was available for all employees and students to use across the organization.
  • Helps automatically backup data to the cloud.
  • Backup is almost instantaneous and does not require any effort from the user.
  • Makes data available from multiple devices connected to the cloud.
  • I hope dropbox increase their size limit for free users. 2GB is just not enough.
  • Their search functionality could be improved.
  • Apps like Paper don't add much to the productive process as of now.
Dropbox is great when you'd like all your files to be available on the cloud, so they can be accessed from any device. The biggest drawback is that the basic version comes with only 2GB of storage, which is just not enough. One has to upgrade to one of their paid plans in order to fully benefit from Dropbox.

We upload photos, audio files, and videos from mobile devices to share among the team. It creates an easy way for everyone to access shared files from anywhere in the world. Also a great backup, second to our local portable hard disk drives. Seamless and easy installation on portable devices and desktop environments.
  • Stores files
  • Allows global sharing
  • Uploads from mobile devices
  • Mobile video upload fails repeatedly.
  • Desktop CPU usage is extremely inefficient. It's transferring files - not a CPU intense process.
  • Desktop app occasionally shows incorrect file date and time.
If you're working in the creative profession and need to share mobile files with other colleagues, Dropbox was the first and easiest method to do this. It was once very fast and reliable. Subsequent updates have slowed the app considerably, and some video files are not accessible. We have resorted to USB cable uploads.

[In my experience,] critics have warned me many times over the years that Dropbox is a risk to any company. I have resisted their advice, as for me, Dropbox was working very well over many years now. I had my businesses and employees use Dropbox, stored most of our not [sensitive] data on the cloud and all seemed good.

Until my account was suspended and the whole company stopped working. [I feel. this is] my fault: too reliable on Dropbox. So I contacted support. First, I had to search the website until I found a form to fill out. Waited three days - no response. Filled out another form. Waited three days. No response. Wrote on Twitter. A response - but no help. Wrote emails to support. No response. So after more than two weeks [in my experience,] without any support, a disabled business account we started migrating to another service. Lots of work, 50 people had to move their stuff, but [I feel] Dropbox didn't leave us a choice. I have tried now to [change] the [subscriptions]- but even this seems impossible as soon as an account is disabled. So in the end [I feel] this was the worst experience with an online company I ever had. [In my experience, was] 100% ignored but charg[ed] the highest fees on the planet. My [personal] advice now as well: stay away!
  • File storage works
  • [In my experience,] no support available at all after 14 days and several tries via all channels
  • Very expensive in comparison to competitors
  • [I feel it] create[d] a dependency that is hard to dis[s]olve
Dropbox is good for private users, to store some pictures or documents. [In my experience,] it is really a liability when using it for businesses. [I personally recommend] don't use it if you rely on this service and don't expect any support from Dropbox.

Dropbox has been very helpful before and during the work-from-home situation with Covid. It has allowed all of our team members to quickly and easily share files without having to be on the network in the office. Dropbox is easy to organize so it's easy to find everything my colleagues send me and vice versa.
  • I love that I'm able to organize items by folder. It keeps things easy to access.
  • Private access to only specific users is a huge plus
  • I like that I can send an invite to the appropriate team members as opposed to having to send them all the specific link to a file or folder
  • I find that dropbox is a bit slow at times, even when my internet is clocking high speeds just fine
  • There are often errors when uploading. Attempting a second time usually alleviates the issue
  • I sometimes have issues signing in with my google account. It's not a huge deal, I just log in manually but would be nice to log in with one click
Dropbox is definitely appropriate for the current work-from-home situation that most people are in still. It really helps keep our team connected. It's also great for sharing files with 3rd party vendors/individuals. The privacy Dropbox offers allows them only to see what they need to see and nothing else.

Dropbox is used for clinical specific departments to share non-HIPAA related files. Including treatment methods, research, templates, etc. The department I use Dropbox in contains a little less than 20 people. It serves as an additional 'intranet' for employees to reach each other and share files for their work load.
  • Sync files
  • Quick sharing
  • Indexing
  • Backup
  • SIZE (of program on our servers, of data limit one can upload/download, etc.)
  • Too frequent updates. Several employees just got used to the user interface, then had to upgrade to different version/UI
  • At times complicated UI
Dropbox is well suited for large files that are shared between several employees. It is less appropriate for small files that can be emailed directly to one or two people.
It is an acceptable backup service, where you can save files. However this will also expose the files to anyone who has access to that shared program and folder, creating privacy concerns.

Dropbox is used by our organization as a cloud based file storage system that can be accessed anywhere we have an internet connection. It is being used across our entire organization, and it addresses the need of our users to be able to access all their files at any time without taking up a lot of space on their local workstations and not have to worry about losing anything if their computer crashes.
  • Cloud Storage
  • Reliability
  • Ease of use
  • Integration with more applications
  • Easier collaboration mechanics
  • Price
Dropbox is well suited for anyone who needs to access their files anywhere and not have to worry about losing data if their computer is lost or damaged. You do not have to be a part of an organization to utilize this software. It is very well suited for personal use as well as business use.

We use Dropbox in several different ways at our agency. Dropbox enables us to easily share files with clients. It also allows us to store larger images that accompany clients' press announcements, enabling us to share a link with members of the media so they can download high-resolution logo and image files. We also use Dropbox to store and share video files internally. Many people aren't able to accept emails with large attachments so Dropbox enables us to get the necessary design, video and image files to clients and other external contacts with ease.
  • Fast upload speeds.
  • Great organization with ability to create folders within folders.
  • Easy to share links to single files or entire folders.
  • Mobile app is easy to use.
  • The quality of some file previews can be lower than when viewing after downloading.
Dropbox is really well suited for organizations working with freelance photographers and videographers who will be uploading many large files after a shoot. Knowing that these files are safe and secure, and can be easily accessed via my computer and phone is great. The Pro version is quite affordable given the amount of space you have for storage. We trust Dropbox and regularly share links with clients to provide them with files they need to download.

We use [Dropbox] in conjunction with SharePoint. We create folders with external clients and with other departments within the company where Draft documents, resources and Final documents can be uploaded and shared. It allows us to work remotely and still collaborate with other team members and other departments within the company.
  • Quick Start up, simply create account and can start using
  • Allows multiple folders and subfolders to organize documents
  • Can be shared with anyone, they just have to make a free Dropbox account.
  • Only available in the Cloud, so security is sometimes a concern
  • Sometimes sharing the link with another member doesn't work
[DropBox is well suited for] sharing Draft documents, final documents [and] attachments. Collaboration on projects is easy while working remote.

As an administrator in an educational setting, I have been using Dropbox professionally for years. It is easy to store and send documents, share files with other Dropbox users and non-Dropbox users, and I don't have to worry about storing large documents on my computer because of the large storage capacity in my Dropbox folders. I also have the peace of mind that I can access my files at home if I need to, because I can log onto my Dropbox wherever I am--even on my phone or iPad. The mobile application lets me access files on the go if I need to.
  • Can store large files
  • Is easy to organize and re-organize as needed
  • Sharing files and documents with other Dropbox and non-Dropbox users is very easy.
  • Have to remember to sync online-only, since large files will take up space on your computer
  • Sometimes the "sort-by" options could be better in the application
Dropbox is well suited for cross-department or cross-institution collaboration, when you might not have access to the same file systems. Dropbox allows you to share and collaborate easily and have a shared space for storage. It also easily tracks who has access to files and lets you download to your computer if needed.

We regularly use Dropbox to send files between employees and are frequently editing the contents of the folder. It solves the problem of needing to get larger-sized files from one member of our team to another. We also use another file transfer service, but Dropbox is one of the cleaner and more streamlined services we've encountered over the years. I can't imagine not using it.
  • Alerts users of new files transferred.
  • Alerts users when contents of folders have been changed.
  • Allows for large files to be stored and transferred safely within the company.
  • Great for sending files to clients as well.
  • Sometimes it can be tricky to figure out how to select one or all of the files in a given folder to download (especially if they've made updates/changes to the interface), but it doesn't take too long to relearn it.
  • There are limits to how many files you can store based on the free / paid plans of the service. Most needs can probably be met with the free plan though.
  • It gets frustrating having to clean out your files regularly to make space for new ones, depending on your plan size.
I run an entertainment media site that is 25 years old. We receive files for review from publicity and clients via Dropbox and we also use the service within our team to send files to each other. It's great for that. It might not be the best option if you wanted to use it to backup your home or office computer files or something along those lines.

Dropbox is being used to share files across multiple departments and locations. It allows us to set permissions on specific folders, files and also, it is very useful to request files for competitions, scholarships[,] and relevant application processes that require files to be submitted. Likewise, Dropbox is also used to provide video playback for viewers in some instances where the files uploaded have to be immediately playable online.
  • File sharing
  • Storage limits can be beneficial
  • Timed file request feature
  • Playback for videos can be choppy, this could be improved
  • [The] ease of storing files outside of [the] user's dropbox could be improved
  • More integrations with common software could be helpful
Well suited for file sharing, large file storage, organization of folders, hierarchy. Well suited for file requests and time management to have these requests expire.

Harder to set up naming conventions for files that are uploaded. If the recipient's Dropbox is full, it can be tricky to be able to share files effectively, since there is no space for them. The link feature helps some with this [...] but causes confusion for some users. Some integrations with other systems are still needing work to cover all features and provide a seamless user experience.
