Time Saving Tips for Your Workday

Like most companies, at Onehub we’re focused on improving productivity and saving time. We hope this actionable list will help you get more out of each day.

Post It Priorities
Every morning, write down your top 2 to 3 highest priority tasks that must get done today. Put them on a sticky note and post it in plain sight (on your desk, monitor, etc.). These notes will help you focus on what is important.

Productive Times
We all have times throughout the day when we are more focused and alert than others. Keep these times in mind and make sure you use them to focus on your high priority tasks.

Block Off Time
Schedule a block of time. Turn off (or ignore) your email, shut down Facebook and Twitter, and let your phone go to voicemail. This is your allotted time to be productive and get things done.

Communicate Clearly During Collaboration
When collaborating with team members on projects it is critical to be clear and communicate well. This will reduce back and forth time and enable team members to take action immediately on your comments and tasks.

Filter Your Email!
Create folders (or tags) for different types of business emails and then create filters that assign new emails to folders. You’ll be amazed how much time it will save when you can read lower priority emails at low productivity times instead of when it arrives.

We hope you find our time saving tips useful.

Onehub Integrates with Dropbox

We are thrilled to announce a new adventure for Onehub and businesses that use Dropbox. We have built an integration using the Dropbox API that connects Onehub with your Dropbox files. This integration gives businesses that use Dropbox powerful new features like advanced permission controls, custom branding, and advanced collaboration tools. Onehub is proud to be the first enterprise file sharing app to integrate with the Dropbox Platform.

“Adding a new layer of sharing and collaboration with Onehub makes Dropbox a complete enterprise file sharing service for businesses that currently use Dropbox,” said Charles Mount, founder and CEO of Onehub. “Onehub is already in use across more than 50,000 businesses and our integration with Dropbox will extend the Onehub secure sharing and collaboration features to all businesses who rely on Dropbox.”

What this means for Businesses that use Dropbox

Sharing Permissions:
Integrating your Dropbox files into Onehub gives your teams and external customers advanced permission controls. Our sharing permission features allow for both folders and files to be shared with more control.

Custom Branding:
After integrating, users will have access to white label and custom domain mapping. This means that when you share a file with customers and colleagues, it will be your brand that they see, not ours. You can place your company’s logo on your file sharing Workspaces. This allows you to grow your brand by showing your employees and customers the logo they know and trust.

Comments and Tasks:
Adding comments and task assignments to files in Onehub improves team collaboration. Comments can be turned off for a folder or file so that administrators can control who can view or write comments. This is a great way to allow geographically dispersed team members to communicate about revisions. Tasks can be created by one person and then assigned to another employee. Tasks and comments can be shared amongst employees to speed up the collaboration process.

This is a very exciting solution for businesses that use Dropbox to have more file sharing features. Give your Dropbox files a promotion by connecting them to Onehub today.
