Get summer ready with Dropbox Basic

Get summer ready with Dropbox Basic

Community Manager
It’s getting a little warmer, there are flowers blooming and buds on the trees, and as nice as spring is, it means summer is just around the corner. We all know that summer is as good as you make it, so putting the work in now means you can enjoy every minute. We’re not talking about putting in hours at the gym, we’re talking about getting organized so you can relax and enjoy. Your Dropbox Basic account might be more powerful than you think for making your summer unforgettable. 

Use Dropbox for your Travel documents: 

If you are travelling this summer, one thing we know that can help take the stress out of planning is having digital copies of all of your documents. Whether it’s your passport, your booking confirmation for a car or hotel, tickets to events - your info can be as mobile as you are. Check out how to use Dropbox on your mobile devices here.
And don’t worry, if you don’t have a digital copy you can use the Dropbox Scanner App to copy in your physical copies too. 

Create To-do lists with Dropbox Paper:

Dropbox Paper files take up very minimal space in your Dropbox Basic account, so make Paper work for you. If you have a list of attractions, places or events you want to get to this summer, make a to-do list with links and info in advance. And if you’re really organized, you can even link the maps to some of those spots too. 
And, don’t forget, Paper is a collaborative tool so you can make joint planning docs for you and your friends - so you don’t have to be in charge of every details, but you know things will get done.

Make the most of Dropbox Passwords:

We’re here to sing the praises of Dropbox Passwords once again, because nothing is more annoying than setting up a movie night with friends and forgetting the logins for all your streaming services. Dropbox Passwords allows you to seamlessly sign in to websites and apps by storing your passwords securely. It safely stores your usernames and passwords on all your devices — so you don’t have to keep them all in your head.
Everything is seamless with Dropbox Passwords:
  • Create secure, strong passwords that sync across your devices
  • Lock the Passwords app automatically after inactivity or whenever your device is locked
  • Unlock the Passwords app with Face ID or Touch ID on your iOS devices or fingerprint scanner on your Android device

Summer project progress photos: 

It’s easy to get so busy that you can lose track of time, and forget to take a moment to appreciate your work. So if you’re planning some summer projects, why not take a weekly photo and upload it to a Dropbox folder to track your progress? @ConF2_0, a Community member mentioned here that she used Dropbox to save photos of her garden to track how well her plants and crops were growing, which I now do myself!

So, whether it’s a DIY project, a garden, or even a new pet that’s growing rapidly, you can track the progress, remember the early days and see how far you’ve come. 
So - how are you going to use Dropbox to make your summer amazing?
