DropBox Business - Collaboration

2018-09-08

Overall this is a great tool to work with freelance designers so you dont have to give them access to places like sharepoint.

Pros

This is a really great way my marketing team can work with our freelance designers and share projects. It is a great place to review a project no matter what stage of the project you are in.

Cons

Sometimes documents can take a while to connect, thus forcing you to reconnect with dropbox itself so you can see all of the recent projects. DropBox will also randomly disconnect so when you are trying to look for projects they will not be there.

Wonderful tool for backup and collaboration

2018-05-12

Pros

Easy backup - we store all company files on dropbox, which allows us to replace computers with ease. We also share files across teams with shared dropbox folders.

Cons

Sometimes the file structure is hard to see visually and is not as friendly as something like sharepoint for project home pages.

Fabulous and Very Handy

2019-01-08

I use this program more than any other (google docs, one drive, microsoft 365 sharepoint). The ease of signing in and accessing what I need makes in invaluable.

Pros

It's everywhere I go! On my phone, on my desktop, on my iPad. It's even on my clients home computer when I'm making sales calls and need to access it.

Cons

I love the program but my information is not as "protected" as it should be. If I don't sign out of the app, anyone that can access my devices, can access the files I keep on it.

It's Like a Giant 1TB Thumbdrive, but in the Cloud!

2019-02-15

I know of many that switched from OneDrive for Business (essentially SharePoint) to DropBox and never looked back.

Pros

It doesn't try to compete with the likes of SharePoint Online and that's a good thing, because if you don't want to deal with the complexity of such things as libraries, nuber of objects in a site, etc. you don't have to with DropBox.

Cons

Could use better recovery options doing any sort of "disaster recovery" is time intensive and requires contacting support and waiting for them to do a "rollback".

2019-02-01

IT IS: "Here's that file we discussed". IT IS NOT: please edit and/or comment and blah, blah, blah

Pros

Ease of use. Accessibility by (almost) everyone. Growing in acceptance and application by consumers of files. Great integration to iOS or Mac OS.

Cons

Every iteration seems to do more, but it isn't Sharepoint or google docs.

Dropbox for business is an easy to use cloud storage system for files.

2018-08-29

Dropbox for business is a good way to collaborate on shared documents and store files in the cloud. Although it is easy to use, there are many competitors that offer similar services that integrate into their company's other products.

Pros

Dropbox is easy to use and allows for collaboration between team members on common documents. The user interface is super slick and we have had no problems with security while using.

Cons

Dropbox has many competitors such as Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive/Sharepoint. These services are integrated into operating systems and other electronic suites which allows for easy functionality with their other software.

Hands Down - The Best Cloud Storage for Business

2018-05-04

Pros

I have used just about every cloud storage available for business including Drive, Box, One Drive, Sharepoint and more.

Cons

There is not really much negative to say about Dropbox. They keep adding features that I need to start using. Price may be the biggest concern as I get the other cloud storage bundled in with emails (office 365 and google suite). I wonder if Dropbox would think about offering an email platform?

Excellent tool for hosting and storage

2018-06-14

Pros

You always cant rely on sharepoints etc. to get things done quickly .

Cons

File Location: At times, the lack of specific tabs can make it difficult to locate older versions of files or deleted copies. The service is free for the first 2GB of storage, and you can earn extra space by encouraging others to sign up. After that, you need to purchase space starting per month. Collaboration: You can add notes and such to a document but you cannot edit in real time.

Near perfection

2018-03-12

Pros

We have a shared drive as well as SharePoint at work though sometimes it's easier to use Dropbox when working files to or from external parties.

Cons

The UI lacks very slightly. I've found myself having to look for a button or feature before. I do find the 2 gb limit on the free edition limiting though what more can I ask for out of something I didn't pay for.

Pros

It's a good option for personal uses, you get 2GB for free and the best feature I like is the camera auto sync.

Cons

Google Drive can provide a great integration with Google Photos, and One Drive can get much better with SharePoint. Unfortunately, Dropbox doesn't have either.

Dropbox - the easiest way to share files outside your organisation

2018-12-29

We work with clients who may be using a variety of cloud storage systems - Microsoft OneDrive, SharePoint Libraries, Google Drive, Box, etc., - or on-premise storage.

Pros

When you need to share files with people outside your organisation, Dropbox is often the best solution. Many already have a Dropbox account and for those that don't, it's a simple process to set one up. That means you don't have to worry about giving access to content within your company systems and the attendant security concerns that arise from this. If you want external contracts, consultants or other stakeholders to share files with you, you can create a request link where they can upload the requested files even if they don't have a Dropbox account. Dropbox seems to have nailed the file sharing process better than other cloud storage providers; when you are working with multiple stakeholders with different corporate systems, Dropbox is likely to be your easiest option for all concerned.

Cons

As with all cloud storage solutions, there is a potential security risk, but this is largely down to the people who use it rather than the software itself.

2019-02-15

Pros

We have teams setup and are able to automate file copying between presentation stations and users. Admin control of security over the different areas is key.

Cons

Microsoft offers free SharePoint and OneDrive to non-profits so I'm not sure how long we'll be with DB going forward.

Dropbox for Business Review - even now more cost effective!

2019-04-05

Communicating shared data, images and video with office and field staff, but in read only and read/write modes is invaluable for business operations and knowledge sharing. The software does what is expected with no problems and great performance. The addition of allowing unlimited devices against a single account makes the software so much more cost effective for field staff just needing to access folders with a large number of reference documents on a read-only basis.

Pros

Dropbox for Business has always been highly useful cloud storage software, but recent changes have made the software both more functional and more cost effective: - Choice between storing files & folders online vs local - Allowing unlimited number of devices to share a single account - Practically unlimited amount of storage - Easy access to almost any type of devices, be it PC/Mac/ Ios/Android and different OS versions - Fast syncing of folders and files when using desktop software (compared to OneDrive and Sharepoint).

Cons

The granularity of control over access to a folder could be improved. Read vs Read/Write is too simplistic of access control. I would like to see more fine access control (like sending a file to a true blind dropbox, submitting a file for approval to be posted, and ability to add or modify files but not allow creation of subfolders).

Overshadowed by other apps

2017-04-26

Pros

I always liked the integration that dropbox had with the OS, as it made things simple. The one way sync and selective sync used to really make it stand out.

Cons

Premium is no better for the pricetag, as Onedrive business (formerly a useless extension of Sharepoint, not redone to be more useful) offers the same storage with better integrations, more control and is bundled with Office, which everybody already needs anyway.

I think other applications like dropbox or google drive are just as effective and easier to use.

Pros

It is nice that large files and documents can be shared with my whole company.

Cons

It is difficult to gain access. Takes much effort and requires inside support. Sharing versus Viewing files and docs is cumbersome. It requires many clicks (steps) to open a document.

Good Product, Depending on Your Other Systems

2017-12-21

I like google docs better and dropbox. Check those two out if they make business sense for your enterprise.

Pros

If your company is a Microsoft shop, you definitely have to consider using Sharepoint in your company, but if you are not you should consider other options. It has all of the key parties.

Cons

It is difficult to use with people and companies who are external to your company to share, integrate, and manage the polices of sharepoint.

Works well. Make sure it's backed p

2019-01-11

Pros

Feel that it manages sharing better than programs DropBox

Cons

One thing I didn't know until fairly recently was that Sharepoint is not backed up. This means that if you have corrupted data, there is no way to pull back a version older than 30 days. Same if files are deleted intentionally or otherwise. Many 3rd party backup services are our there - it's worth it.

Easy integration into MS Office suite makes saving and sharing docs in the cloud a breeze.

Pros

SharePoint is similar to Dropbox but with superior security, superior UI and superior integration with the office tools I use most.

Cons

People may not know how easy it is to use; or that they likely already have an account at their disposal.

Misses The Mark

2018-12-09

We had hoped that Sharepoint would offer the cloud-to-local sync functionality and performance of Dropbox, but with integration with Office and Excel.

Pros

It serves as a cloud-based central file store, and you can open files from it via the web browser or use its sync utility to sync the files locally similar to Dropbox. When it works as intended, it's a passable experience.

Cons

There are daily failures by Sharepoint that add up to a miserable user experience. The biggest issue is the sync utility. On a daily basis there are problems with local changes syncing back to the cloud, or cloud changes syncing locally. We work on Macs, which I suppose is understandable that our platform wouldn't be as well-supported, but we do pay the same money that Windows users do. The integration with Finder is passabe, but the icons for "synced" or "up-to-date" are not always accurate. Also, the utility that shows you what is syncing is not always accurate. I can save a file locally and watch that utility and I see no sign that my change is syncing to the cloud. On a weekly basis, we have a user open a file from the web browser only to discover that some other user had saved a version of the file that never synced. Also, the web browser file views frequently load folders with empty file lists, you have to refresh to see the files, which is just problems with basic usability.

Sharepoint is great at storing, a little rough on navigating.

2019-04-01

Great pace to keep your documents, but it is being replaces by MS Teams, which is the same as Sharepoint but merged with Skype.

Pros

The ability to find a common repository that others in your environment can access is tough, Sharepoint addes additional security and features above others like Dropbox.

Cons

Like most Microsoft products, you must use the tool on their terms. If you work well with MS products, this will be a great experience, but if you don't you will be frustrated.

For basic needs... it's good. everything else not so much

2018-04-10

If you just need to file share and have some basic collaboration between people within your company, it's way better then dropbox but if you need to build experiences for your teams, your customers and drive better engagement, this isn't what they push it to be..

Pros

cheap, well integrated into the Microsoft stack of servers and tools. Setting it up, creating folders and giving permissions to people to upload/share documents couldn't be easier.

Cons

It is difficult to really leverage it when compared to other CMS or portal platforms. Customzing the content models, workflows and delivery views are not really it's strong suit.

It gets the job done, but not in a fun or enjoyable way

2018-11-02

I would just as soon use DropBox or Google Documents to manage documents, but I think SharePoint is probably better for larger organizations with multiple moving parts.

Pros

SharePoint allows you to share files with you coworkers easily. If you need software that helps you stay organized, helps keep your remote team connected, and a way to keep project files documented, this software works. For us, we had a large number of team members working remotely, and from satellite offices around the US. Sharepoint helped keep project managers and administrators accountable, and helped us stay organized and on the same page. We were easily able to manage document flow, and everyone could find documents easily

Cons

I don't know if this is a SharePoint problem, or how our IT administrators set up our SharePoint sites, but it was sometimes hard to navigate. There seemed to be endless dead-ends where you had to use the "back" browser button in order to navigate up folder levels. The features that allow you to edit Word / Excel documents in the browser never worked, and always ended up crashing. Also, the "social media" feature that allows you to post updates about what you are doing is really cheesy.

Using it for teachers to share files online

2016-08-31

Pros

Microsoft is a well known vendor with lots of support available - particularly online support via forums. This makes Microsoft a great choice for large companies, because they will always be supported. What I like best about SharePoint is its ability to integrate with other Microsoft programs. We use it as a central saving point for files that teachers may need to share. Our backup files are shared there. I've never had any issues with it losing files nor have I found it confusing. It has a lot of functionality and it is reliable.

Cons

I guess it does not have as much of a user friendly interface as your typical Box or Dropbox options.

Consider your use - is it personal or business? If business, SharePoint would be a better option than Dropbox or Box. If personal, weigh the cost versus the amount of storage you'll get. Box and Dropbox are easier to use but only get you so far.

2018-10-26

Pros

Sharepoint makes sharing and downloading files within your company easy. There's little to no learning curve with how to navigate its interface and it provides administrative tools to limit what can and can't be seen/uploaded/downloaded among those in the office.

Cons

There nothing's inherently wrong with Sharepoint, other than the fact that there exists cheaper options that can provide the same service, in some cases for free. Dropbox, for example, is a great, albeit rudimentary, file sharing service that can be obtained for free.

Sharepoint

2019-01-30

I found Sharepoint to be frustrating. I can see the value it brings from an organization standpoint, but believe that there needs to be a better user interface and a more streamlined task creation tool. What bothers me is that it can take a long time to assign a number of similar tasks to different people. I would like to see improvements before I continued to use Sharepoint.

Pros

The functionality of Sharepoint allows users to share files in a manner similar to dropbox. You can see who has uploaded files and when.

Cons

I thought that the user interface was not good. I found it tedious to be clicking through so many areas and found it confusing to use with large groups of people. Further, I found the process for creating tasks to be tedious and incredibly frustrating.

We use SharePoint as our team drives instead of shared drives on our network and it works well.

2017-08-15

Overall the benefits of using SharePoint out weigh the issues I have with it and the software is a wonderful tool for teams to use to keep track of not only files, but calendars, meeting notes, tasks and much more.

Pros

The best part about using SharePoint is all of the different ways you can setup file shares and team sites. There are so many tools and resouces available for making sure you are connected with your respective teams. I really like the calendar and task list and the ability to customize the site so its not just another version of Windows explorer.

Cons

Other file share tools like Dropbox do not have this problem and I wish Microsoft would fix this issue.
