Dropbox is used in a variety of ways at our workplace. Sharing documents with our team on the go is made possible by Dropbox. Once a file is uploaded to Dropbox, team members can view and discuss it immediately. Some of the new features make it easier for us to keep things organized and maintain continuity during our meetings. We will store large files on it and send them to clients or suppliers via a link. A sales campaign's data is also stored in Dropbox. For example, it enables our marketing team to work on various sales campaigns from any location.

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.

For me Dropbox is the ultimate file sharing out there. It is the most intuitive and easy to use solution. Unless security and confidentiality of information is extremely important, Dropbox is a must have. It is way better than Microsoft OneDrive. You can actually drop a whole folder and its files in Dropbox and it seamlessly sync. It is not the case with similar solution like OneDrive.

However if you can't have confidential information on another company's cloud, it's better to avoid Dropbox or any other similar solution.

We’ve used Dropbox as our initial method of digital storage. As opposed to traditional hard disk storage, it stored all of our digital data there. The simplicity with which we can use Dropbox is unmatched by any other file-sharing or storage service. Dropbox makes it simple to transfer files between computers or mobile devices. Dropbox is free to use and works great for our team size, but I’m not sure how it scales. With Dropbox Desktop or a web browser, it can save files well. It’s the 2GB of storage that’s supplied in the basic edition that’s the biggest issue.

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 might be used for insignificant data. We lost all our data and still have not received a proper explanation. Rather be careful in using it as your only backup.

We use Dropbox in a few distinctive manners at our organization. Dropbox empowers us to effortlessly impart documents to customers and suppliers. It likewise permits us to store large files enabling us to share with customers and suppliers by a link. We also use Dropbox for certain sales campaigns where our marketing team can collaborate virtually from anywhere on different sales campaigns and store it on Dropbox cloud platform.

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 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 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.

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.

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.

[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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Dropbox is great for small teams and teams that need to share data on a daily basis. Dropbox's ease of sharing and good sharing management easily outstrips Google Drive's lackluster data layout, sharing interfaces, and integration of shared data in a productive and easy-to-use manner. Additionally, its traditional treatment of its service as an extension of the OS is far more usable than other services like Box and GDrive. In particular, GDrive performs poorly representing its custom data types (Sheets/Docs/etc) while Dropbox generally assumes that the user will pick their own document types and interact with them in a native format.

I consult with some clients who are looking to optimize their business. One of the first things I encourage them to do if they are not already paperless is the transition to a paperless office. I've found that with any size staff, Dropbox can accommodate their needs, as you can allow access depending on your needs. For example, you can have an accounting folder that only those authorized can see, while having a marketing folder that only marketing team members have access to. And have a company folder that everyone can see, which would be company manuals, HR policies, etc. Dropbox continues to make enhancements that make it more functional for any type of business. One feature I love is that you can set an expiration date when sharing a file, which is great for security. Even if you have a large hard drive on your computer, having all of your files backed up in Dropbox is a wise thing to do. In the event of fire or theft of your computer, your files are still safe and available.
