Centroy Announces Dropbox Integration
Centroy is pleased to announce application integration with the Dropbox API for business intranet and extranet sites. With this announcement, Centroy customers are able to access and share Dropbox files directly from their Centroy online team collaboration portal.
Centroy CEO Andrew Homer said, “Integration with Dropbox provides our customers with greater choice in sharing files with team members. They’ve been asking us for tighter integration for a while. We’re very excited to deliver on our roadmap promise.”
By setting up a private Dropbox folder, teams using Centroy as a business intranet or extranet site have central file accessibility through Centroy’s password protected encrypted portal. For example, teams working within Centroy’s collaboration software suite can attach Dropbox files to individual tasks and have all files updated in one place. In addition, customers can continue to leverage Centroy’s File folder repository in concert with Dropbox to ensure files are organized, accessible and secure.
This integration further extends Centroy’s approach to online team collaboration by allowing members to access the newest version of file located on a member’s hard drive, without needing to re-upload the same file many times. Along with Centroy’s other collaboration features and Google docs integration, customers now have greater flexibility in using multiple online collaboration software tools.
How does it work?
Easy. Administrators set up using a “secret app key” that Dropbox generates. From within a group feature such as Task Tracker, Discussions, Calendar or WikiBook, members can click on the “Attach from Dropbox” link and choose the desired file. The file attached from Dropbox will stay in sync with the latest version on your computer and mobile devices. Utilizing Dropbox’s file search and organization is a helpful way to find the desired file. Members can also store files directly to Centroy’s File Folders repository.
