The other day I was sharing a few files with my collegues at work. I added a new task and then used the File Upload option to update it with a new logo that I was working on. A few days later the logo design changed a bit and so I had to upload another version of the logo. I also have a Dropbox account where I store most of my files related to the Brightpod project. This process seemed cumbersome until we stumbled upon what is called a Dropbox Chooser — a new way to let you access the photos, docs and videos in your Dropbox from any web application, and keep them updated.
So, we did just that. Included the Dropbox Chooser as an option whenever you want to share files to your tasks and messages. Simply, click on the Dropbox Chooser link, sign in to your Dropbox account and share the file with your team members. The file still remains on your account — Dropbox just creates a unique link that is passed to Brightpod and stored within that task. Check out how it is done:
Now, when you update a task/message, you can attach a file from Dropbox to keep everyone up to date, while keeping all your files in Dropbox!
