Following on from the rollout out of U2F Security Key support earlier this month, Dropbox has this week announced the rollout of a new feature it has added to its service for users to enjoy.
That now allows the dragging and dropping of URLs directly into a Dropbox account. Enabling users to store URL links alongside files.
Although there are plenty of URL bookmarking services available if you are a heavy user of Dropbox the new feature will add extra functionality to the way that you can store data about files you keep in your Dropbox account. Dropbox explains more about the new URL feature:
Now, you can drag and drop URLs into your Dropbox — on the web and on your desktop — and open them on any of your devices. This means you can take your bookmarks anywhere, instead of having them confined to a certain browser on a certain computer. But it also means you can organize all your information, no matter the format, into Dropbox folders — so your information is in one central place.
For example, let’s say you’re planning an event. Your event agency uses Word documents, and your marketing team puts everything in an online company wiki. Instead of checking two (or more) different locations for the information you need, you can put everything in a dedicated Dropbox folder that’s shared with the team — so your wiki URLs are next to your Word docs, which are next to the vendor invoices and the invite design mockups — and everyone can have easy access to all the files they need, on all their devices, from that one Dropbox folder.
