It’s easier to get work done when you’re using the tools you love. At Dropbox, that’s been the driving force behind our partnership with Microsoft from the start. Recently, we’ve turned our focus to helping our users unlock greater value from their Office 365 deployments. The result? Integrations and features that help make teams more collaborative, productive, and secure.
Working together in real time can be a real challenge, as teams struggle to juggle email attachments and multiple, conflicting versions of files. We’ve developed features and integrations with Microsoft Office to bring the magic of Dropbox to your desktop and browser. With co-authoring, you can open any Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint file in a shared Dropbox folder directly into Office Online, and simultaneously edit alongside your colleagues. The Dropbox badge extends these collaboration capabilities to the desktop apps, showing you who else is viewing your Office file and notifying you when changes are made. That means faster turnarounds, fewer check-in meetings, and simpler workflows. So whether you’re sharing with partners, suppliers, customers, or contractors, you’ll spend less time coordinating and more time collaborating.
