  • Streamline workflows when multiple team members are working together to produce and approve a final product
  • Get full visibility into who’s working on what documents. Users can see version history and file activity, so you know when the work is getting done.
  • Boost workplace productivity with robust previews and comments. Avoid wasting time with “What app do I need to open this file?” or leave comments in Dropbox documents and within video and audio with time-based comments

Secure productivity in the workplace

  • Assigned sharing roles that allow access to files and folders to only those who need it, or set documents to view-only
  • Restricted downloads from shared links keeps work secure by not allowing downloads of files when access links are shared to larger teams
  • Password protection and expiry dates for shared links let you control who can access your files and folders, and for how long
