Dropbox has introduced a new set of features that gives admins better visibility and control over the way individuals and groups use the service.
Launched in 2011, Dropbox for Teams enables a group of people to share one account — with multiple logins — instead of requiring members to have individual accounts. Last October, teams were given the option to turn on two-step verification, giving groups an additional layer of security.
With the new interface, admins can now view member details, like per-use storage usage, recent activity, web sessions, linked devices, and third-party applications. Additionally, your admins will have better access to team activity, such as logins and team invitations — this also includes the option to create downloadable reports.
And finally, through the new console, admins can set sharing controls to keep shared folders and links within the company, or allow team members to choose access level on a case-by-case basis. This is especially important for enterprise and other companies requiring additional security.
Based on member feedback, the new features are available for all Dropbox for Teams members today. You can learn more about the new console in the video below.
