Dropbox has unveiled a new add-in for Microsoft Outlook that will allow users to share files of any size, making it easier than ever to send larger files without the pesky data cap.
Room when you need it
Have you ever found yourself playing with the difficulty of managing cumbersome attachments, even sending multiple emails? Fret no more, now you can send all their files through one simple shared link.
Not only can users share larger files, they can also keep team members in sync thanks to the link updating itself when new materials are added.
There’s also the added benefit of increased control over who has access, allowing the sender to determine who has access, and it can all be done from Outlook.
How to get started
Once the add-in is enabled, a Dropbox icon will now be present on the Outlook ribbon whenever an email is being read or composed.
By clicking the icon, a new pane will open by which you can choose which files or folders you’d like to share from Dropbox. And any incoming material can also be saved directly to Dropbox as well. Slick.
The Dropbox add-in is available to all Office 365 users as well as Outlook.com and the most current Windows and Mac versions, proving once more that Dropbox isn’t dropping the ball when it comes to user needs.
