Dropbox is an amazing productivity tool for court reporters! I’ve written about some of the best features in previous blog posts: How to install Dropbox on your new computer, transcript order forms utilizing Dropbox, upgrading a new PC and using Dropbox, top productivity gadgets, and more . . .
- Do you ever feel you receive too many attachments in one email and realize you forgot to save one?
- Sometimes a colleague is trying to email an attachment and the file size is too large.
- Need that audio file from your videographer?
- That out-of-state client wants to send multiple exhibits and is sending them in email batches.
- Want to gather photos from a convention or seminar from your friends and colleagues?
- Working on a project or newsletter for your state court reporter association?
Dropbox has added a new feature called File Requests. With File Requests, gathering photos, docs, and more from several colleagues is simpler than ever. Just send out a link to let others upload files directly into your Dropbox folder. There’s no need to rely on a collaborator to have Dropbox installed on their computer. With File Requests, people who upload files to your personal Dropbox will never have access to your account and only you can view uploaded files by others, unless you decide to share with them.
I’ve been using this feature for a few weeks now with a fellow reporter in my firm and find it’s an absolutely easy way to be more productive and save time for both of us. It’s easy to start collecting documents now with File Request. Click here for more information on how you can get started today.
Of course, as always, the beauty of Dropbox is that you can access all your files across multiple devices!
Technology is Great!
