Dropbox is a cloud storage service and on your computer it’s essentially like an internet connected folder that you can put things there and access them on any other device that you’re signed in to with your Dropbox account. However, Dropbox wants to be more than just a folder for your files.
The company announced in a blog post that it was making some big changes that will make it easier for users to manage their files through automation, tagging, and more. With automation, users can use Dropbox, for example, to create automation folders where they can automatically name, sort, and tag the content as they add files.
This means that if you drag a series of files into the folder based on their creation date, the folder will automatically put them into folders based on the date so you can find them quickly anytime, even if they were created months or years ago .
Users can also tag their files, which is an alternative to folders. For example, you can tag all your invoices with the tag “invoices” once. As Dropbox notes, this can come in handy in cases where you’ve forgotten the name of the file.
According to Dropbox, these features will be rolled out to Dropbox teams first before being made available to users with individual or Dropbox family plans.
