Dropbox is an application that allows a user to store and share data from any device in the cloud. It has over 100 million users, and it provides 2 GB of free storage to everyone. According to Dropbox, you can access your data from anywhere you have an internet connection. You can access it from any mobile device such as iPhone or iPad. However, there are some things that you cannot do with Dropbox:
You cannot edit MS Word files directly
You cannot work on PowerPoint slides directly
You cannot view PDFs
You cannot access your files offline
When you create a document in Dropbox, you create a file named “dropbox.txt” instead of the actual name of the document. This means that whenever someone tries to open the file, he or she will be taken to Dropbox to open the file. That’s not very convenient. But then again, Dropbox is free.
The second issue is that if you are using a Mac, you will no longer have access to your documents if you delete them from your computer. They will be stored in the cloud. This makes it impossible for the user to recover deleted files. If you want to recover deleted files on Windows, you need to have a Microsoft account. In short, using Dropbox makes it difficult for the user to recover data that has been deleted accidentally.
Chatter is a business cplaboration platform offered by Salesforce.com. It was created to keep an eye on what is going in within the organization and communicate with cpleagues more effectively. Chatter is like an internal social network where employees can post updates about their work or personal life and share information with their cpleagues. It supports cplaboration between employees as well as external partners such as customers and suppliers. Chatter includes features for sharing files, interacting with documents and so on.
When Chatter and Dropbox were integrated, Salesforce announced that Dropbox users could save files into Chatter fpders and view them from any web browser or mobile device. The integration works seamlessly. if you are working on a file on Dropbox, you can just drag the file into a Chatter fpder to share it with all other users who subscribe to that fpder (this is called “fplowing”. Chatter also uses Dropbox to display photos of your contacts and to store your contacts’ addresses and phone numbers.
The integration of Dropbox and Chatter has many benefits for users who are using either one of them or both of them. First, Dropbox users can now access their files through Chatter, which eliminates the issue of having different applications for every type of file. By integrating Dropbox and Chatter, the user can share his or her files with others without having to email them. This way it eliminates the need for sending attachments via email and thus reduces clutter associated with email threads. Moreover, it is beneficial for anyone using multiple devices, whether it is an Android device or iPhone or iPad or any other device, because they will all be able to access their files from any device they use. Users can also cplaborate with others by editing a file together without having to send it back and forth via email. Furthermore, Dropbox users can now read their files offline on any device without having to log into Dropbox while on the go. What’s more? They can even edit these files offline! In short, this integration allows users of both companies to get the best of both worlds and improves productivity and efficiency for users who work for different companies but use their products at the same time. The integration has changed the way we work together by eliminating the need for emails or attachments while still keeping our files organized in one place.
