Cloud Collaboration Tools: The Do's & the Don'ts

It seems like everyone's using DropBox and it's a great way to save and share files!  You can download it free at www.dropbox.com and copy files into it.  When you're away from your office, simply log into your dropbox account from your iPhone or any internet-connected computer, and Viola!  there are your files.  You can also share files with other people, so they can have access to the same documents.  It's a terrific way for a group to collaborate on projects!  Dropbox is simple, efficient, and effective.  That is what we love!

On the other hand, we do NOT recommend using SugarSync.  Too many people had bad experiences with the software deleting their files from their computer.  We have waaaay too much important stuff to put our transactions and files at risk!  Two thumbs down for this software.

Regina - I was in a short class at a BarCamp on DropBox but haven't used it yet. Seems to make sense though.

I was just getting ready to write about a new feature our software offers property managers.  Who knows, it might help you, too.   The gist of it is free online Owner & Tenant portals with the option to upload custom files/photos/documents if you're a Rentec Direct customer.   Here's a link you might find interesting:    http://www.rentecdirect.com/blog/2012/01/share-files-and-documents-with-owners-and-tenants/

Hi Regina,
Dropbox is very cool. And Dropbox is an excellent storage service.
For example, you can use Dropbox as a backup destination to backup all your data from other cloud services. For example, if you use Evernote and Google Docs, it might good to backup all notes and Google Docs documents to Dropbox.
So please check out cloudHQ (http://cloudHQ.net) - cloudHQ can backup and sync all your files from Google Docs, Evernote, SugarSync, Box, etc. to Dropbox - even Basecamp projects.
