Dropbox is trying to make it easier for teams to work together, which is why the company unveiled a new drag and drop feature for URLs.
With this new functionality, users can drag and drop URLs into their Dropbox and open them later on any device. The feature esentially allows users to take their bookmarks anywhere instead of keeping them on a certain browser or computer. What’s more, it means that users can organize all of their information in one place regardless of format.
This feature is particularly useful for users like students or professional work teams. For instance, students can save and organize URLs for sources when writing a report, while teams can create easily sharable folders that include URLs as well as documents.
“For example, let’s say you’re planning an event. Your event agency uses Word documents, and your marketing team puts everything in an online company wiki. Instead of checking two (or more) different locations for the information you need, you can put everything in a dedicated Dropbox folder that’s shared with the team — so your wiki URLs are next to your Word docs, which are next to the vendor invoices and the invite design mockups — and everyone can have easy access to all the files they need, on all their devices, from that one Dropbox folder,” Dropbox said in its blog announcement.
Users can give the new feature a try by signing into Dropbox.com or by downloading the newest version of the company’s iOS or Android app.
