Integration of Dropbox and Microsoft Excel

Dropbox?

Dropbox is a file hosting service that allows users to sync files and share them online. It is a platform for social cplaboration with more than 500 million registered users and 4 billion files saved (Dropbox.

Microsoft Excel?

Excel is a spreadsheet application developed by Microsoft. It is a word processing and spreadsheet software program, which can be used to help organize data, calculate numbers, analyze data, work with charts and graphs, and create a variety of other documents (Microsoft.

Integration of Dropbox and Microsoft Excel

Dropbox was launched in 2007, and since then, the company has been working on improving its services. In 2016, it carried out a study to determine if there is any integration between Dropbox and Microsoft Excel. The research shows that there are several ways to integrate Dropbox and Microsoft Excel (Dropbox. In this research, the fplowing were identified as methods to integrate Dropbox and Microsoft Excel:

  • Remote storage access. One way to access remote storage is by using the Dropbox app. This app allows the user to access all their files from anywhere. The user does not need to be on the same network as the computer where the files are stored. The result of this integration will be that users can open their personal files from anywhere within Microsoft Office applications such as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel (Dropbox. Another method to access remote storage is via the Dropbox web interface. This allows the user to access their files from anywhere using a web browser. This is possible when Dropbox is installed on the computer. However, it can only be done after logging in (Dropbox.
  • Data synchronization. A second way to integrate Dropbox and Microsoft Excel is through data synchronization. When the user saves or updates a file in Dropbox, the same file would automatically be updated in Microsoft Excel. Data synchronization happens automatically; this means no extra steps are needed for the user to make it happen. The data synchronization happens every time the user saves or updates a file in Dropbox (Dropbox.
  • File previews. A third method to integrate Dropbox and Microsoft Excel is by providing file previews. This feature allows the user to see what the contents of a file are without having to open it. The preview can be loaded into Microsoft Office applications such as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. When the user clicks on a file in Dropbox, the preview will display in a separate window. There are two types of previews. full-text preview and thumbnails preview (Dropbox. Full-text preview displays an entire document as a single page. With thumbnails preview, only a few pages of the document are displayed (Dropbox.
  • Document conversion. A fourth method of integrating Dropbox and Microsoft Excel is by converting files to different formats. The user can convert between Microsoft Office formats such as DOCX, XLSX, PPTX, and VSDX. Conversion between these formats can be done online in Dropbox. This aspect of integration helps in reducing dependence on local hardware. As a result, it decreases hardware cost (Dropbox.
  • Share links. A fifth method of integration between Dropbox and Microsoft Excel is sharing links between them. Sharing links takes place when a link from Dropbox is opened inside Microsoft Office applications such as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel (Dropbox. Opening the link allows the user to edit or view the document in Office applications or save it on their computer (Dropbox.
  • Sharing fpders. A sixth method of integration between Dropbox and Microsoft Excel is shared fpders. Users can share fpders with each other using Dropbox. This means that they can share files between themselves and other people who have an account on Dropbox. Opening shared files from people on your contact list within Microsoft Office applications such as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel will allow you to edit or view their files easily (Dropbox.
  • Sync Drive. A seventh method of integration between Dropbox and Microsoft Excel is through Sync Drive. The Sync Drive feature allows users to access their local disk drive from Dropbox online storage. With Sync Drive enabled on their computer, users can save or update files directly into Dropbox’s servers when they are connected online (Dropbox. If they are offline, they can save or update files into their local disk drive (Dropbox. This integration helps with synchronizing files between computers that are offline or online (Dropbox.
  • Email attachments. An eighth method of integrating Dropbox and Microsoft Excel is via email attachments. Files can be attached in emails from Dropbox accounts and sent to people who use Microsoft Office applications such as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel (Dropbox. It also works vice versa; if someone sends you an email attachment containing files from your Dropbox account, you can open it in Microsoft Office applications such as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel (Dropbox. This integration helps users save time when transferring files from one platform to another because they do not need to copy them manually from Dropbox accounts to local systems and vice versa (Dropbox.
  • Sync Scheduler. A ninth method of integrating Dropbox and Microsoft Excel is by using Sync Scheduler. This feature allows users who have chosen to set up automatic syncing between their computers to change the schedule for syncing files so that they can sync only during specific times each day or week (Dropbox. For instance, users may want to sync only when they are away from their computer for extended periods of time (Dropbox. Once they have set up automatic syncing for certain days or times of day, they can use Sync Scheduler to modify those settings at any time (Dropbox. This helps reduce their Internet data usage by syncing only when they are not using their computers (Dropbox.

Benefits of Integration of Dropbox and Microsoft Excel

The above mentioned integration methods have numerous benefits for both users and businesses using these methods (Dropbox. These benefits include but are not limited to the fplowing:

  • Increase in productivity. The first benefit of integration between Dropbox and Microsoft Excel is increased productivity rate among employees who use these platforms equally (Dropbox. When employees have access to their personal files with them even when they are working remotely from home or office, they are able to work more efficiently than if they were using local storage alone (Dropbox. This helps businesses achieve higher profit levels since the employees would be able to complete required tasks faster than otherwise possible with just local storage alone (Dropbox. Other benefits include ensuring employees do not lose important information while working remotely outside office premises too far away from where they keep their personal documents (Dropbox. Some employees would end up forgetting where they kept some vital documents while doing work remotely outside office premises (Dropbox. Integration also increases employee motivation levels since employees know that they can access their personal documents 24/7 even when not physically present at work premises (Dropbox. Another benefit is that employees’ productivity levels would increase rapidly when they are not forced to wait until they return home before being able to work on their personal documents again (Dropbox. Employees’ productivity levels would increase especially when using hybrid platforms that allow them to work on their personal documents outside office premises without having to wait until they return home before working on them again (Dropbox. Employees who use hybrid platforms tend to take leave during weekends less often because they do not have to wait until they get home before being able to work on their personal documents again (Dropbox. Employees who have access to their personal documents outside office premises would also save time since they do not have to waste time going home before working on personal documents again (Dropbox. They would also be able to get more work done in less time than if they had limited local storage facilities available for their personal documents only while working outside office premises (Dropbox. Some employees would end up taking longer breaks because they would have limited access time for their personal documents while working outside office premises without hybrid platforms available for them (Dropbox. Another benefit of integration between these platforms is that employees who work remotely outside office premises would not have to wait until Monday mornings before starting work again after taking leave during weekends (Dropbox. Without hybrid platforms available for them outside office premises, employees would be forced to wait until Monday mornings before starting work again after taking leave during weekends since they would not have access to their personal documents during weekends except when physically present at home doing nothing else but work on them again (Dropbox. Employees who have hybrid platforms available for them outside office premises would start working immediately after coming back from leave during weekends without having to wait until Monday mornings before starting work again after taking leave during weekends (Dropbox. Another benefit of integration between these platforms is that employees would not be forced to work on their personal documents during weekends since they have hybrid platforms available for
