Time Management Tip: File Sharing

23 January 2011

Save time by sharing

Save time by sharing

In the spirit of embracing technology this year (see this previous post) I’ve been introduced to a great way to share files over the internet.

I’ve tried to use Google Docs before, but personally I found it was a bit complex in terms of needing to log in and move files around. It left me feeling that file sharing was a cumbersome and time consuming task, but thankfully I’ve now been proved wrong.

Having spent the last two weeks working on marketing material for Primary People I thought I would recommend an alternative package as it’s really speeded up our work. We haven’t needed to email documents about and have been able to access them in our own time and from the comfort of our own pc’s.

So, let me introduce you to Dropbox. It’s free and it could save you time when you’re sharing files and working collaboratively with a distant partner.

I’m not an associate, so this is a bit of genuine usefulness that I thought I’d share, as I’m a big fan of using technology to save time.

Why, even yesterday, I used the electric telephone to call home and make sure my dinner was in the oven, so that when I walked through the door there was hot food ready for me!

Isn’t it amazing what technology can do to save you time!

How could you use technology to save you some time this week?
