Dropbox – share and collaborate

Funky monkeys

Talking earlier on Twitter, I was asked how I use Dropbox for work.  This is how I do it, and although it may not answer the questions, it certainly works for me!

  • I have Dropbox set up on my home and work laptops.
  • I have a few folders at work set up with SyncToy (thanks to @iteachyear4 for the tip)
  • I have shared a number of folders with staff – meaning every file that I save into those shared folders, automatically gets shared with them.

Put this into a school context, if you have a folder on your school server that has your school planning in, it can be synced with a shared folder within Dropbox that is shared with every teacher in the school/team. As long as every teacher has Dropbox installed on their laptops, they can open, amend and save those files.

This way, you won’t need a separate Dropbox account for work and personal, you can use the same one.
