Dropbox makes Office co-authoring easy and Outlook easier

By

Online Office collaboration and no Outlook attachment size limits are part Dropbox’s new Microsoft enhancements.

Cloud storage company Dropbox partnered with Microsoft in 2014 to bring Dropbox features to any device. This initially covered editing Office files from any device – iOS, Android, Mac and Windows, syncing of documents, and providing live URL’s to them.

Last week it announced a Dropbox app for Windows 10.

It has extended its Office integration further. Users now have the capabilities to co-edit files in Office Online. They can now also send documents directly from Dropbox within their Outlook.com account, allowing them to better collaborate regardless of their device or location.

With the new co-authoring in Office Online, users can collaborate with other users on the Office docs in Dropbox in real time - no need to email feedback or send multiple versions back and forth.

It works from www.dropbox.com by opening any Microsoft Office file in Office Online.

Collaborators can see real time changes and communicate via comments while editing the same file. Changes are saved automatically to Dropbox, and all users can keep working on the file even after the author has closed it. This feature is available now to all Dropbox Basic and Pro users as well as Dropbox Business users with a paid Microsoft Office 365 license.

Soon Dropbox’s Outlook.com enhancement will allow users to select and send files directly from Dropbox without worrying about attachment size limits.
