In the last week, Dropbox have introduced some great new features to make working collaboratively a much easier process.

File Requests

With file requests, you can request and receive files from anyone, and they’ll go right into the Dropbox folder you specify. Here’s how it works:

  • Get files from anyone: Anyone can send you a file, even if they don’t have a Dropbox account

  • Easily receive large files: You can receive files as large as 2 GB

  • Keep your files handy and secure: Submitted files are accessible on all your devices, but just to you — people who send you files can’t see those uploaded by others (unless you choose to share them), and can’t access your Dropbox

It couldn’t be easier, simply launch the File Request option from dropbox.com/requests and enter what file you are requesting and choose the folder you wish it to go into.

Then either copy the link to email to an individual or group of people or enter names or email addresses to have Dropbox send it through for you.
