MO
Call Center Coordinator at IT Central Station (soon to be PeerSpot)

I use the solution to store certain documents and upload photos remotely from my cell phone directly to my computer. This means I have both an iPhone and desktop application and I sync between them.

Co founder BlackRock Pictures and freelance consulting at a media company with 1-10 employees

We use Dropbox for our files when we finish our projects. For example, once we've done a forming project, we then upload the material. We do a first assembly cut on the material, and then we upload the content to Dropbox.

The final videos and productions that we use, all go into a Vimeo account that we have.

It is my company's policy to use Dropbox to store all the official details. It is a central storage unit. All of our official files have to be invariably stored on Dropbox until now. However, going forward, we will be migrating to Microsoft Teams.

RM
Director, CEE Investment Services at a real estate/law firm with 10,001+ employees

I use Dropbox service for personal use to store files of all types. The organization where I work does not use this solution. I do not have my personal computer at the moment and that is why I am using Dropbox less frequently than before. When I will have my own personal computer again I think I will use it more often.
