Amongst the most important cloud storage services, we have to point out Google Drive and especially Dropbox. And since the latter has been going on for quite a few years with plenty of users thanks to its efficient infrastructure, it can now offer complementary functions such as this collaborative workspace.
We're talking about Dropbox Paper, conceived for work teams that need to create and develop their projects collaboratively. It can be used for all sorts of projects, whether professional, academic or domestic and offers great flexibility when it comes to working, allowing you to associate all sorts of files such as videos, images, code or audio.
The online free collaborative workspace offered by Dropbox
It's a system that offers real-time updates of the uploaded contents, being able to sync on all devices regardless of whether you're using the Android or iPhone app, or the desktop version for Windows PC, Linux or Mac.
The idea behind this tool is the same as the one we've seen in other services of the same style, such as certain functions offered by Evernote or Google Docs, for instance:
- Create and share ideas from the very beginning creating new documents, editing existing ones, and sharing them with your computer from the same application.
- Help your projects to advance publishing or replying to comments within the application at any moment. The latter will reach all users.
- Keep up to date from a single place where you can review comments, shared elements, mentions, new versions of the project that you're working on...
- Access in offline mode whenever you're without an Internet connection. Work on your documents and let them update whenever you go back online.
A boost to the productivity of work teams.
This application to improve group productivity is framed within the same category as others of the likes of Trello or Slack, clearly focused on improving the workflow between members of the same team. Furthermore, one of its advantages is that it has been translated into dozens of languages.
