Online Meeting & Collaboration
With everything being done online these days, it seems as though you need to know how to master a multitude of technologies just to get your work done. We are expected to know how to use email, texting, social media, cloud-based office productivity services, smartphone apps and so on.
Not too long ago (depending on who you ask), when we wanted to share files and collaborate with our peers, we would have to send files back and forth via email and hope that we were working on the latest version of the file. Doing this would also get complicated when we had many people we were working with on a project at the same time.
Fortunately, today we have many options as to where we can store and share our files and it seems like we are almost getting pressured into using these services. For example, when you get a new computer running Windows, it will try and force you to use their online storage platform called OneDrive. And if you have a Google\Gmail account, you automatically get access to their Google Drive service whether you plan on using it or not!
The goal of this book is to get you signed up with Box and comfortable with the interface when it comes to uploading and downloading files and folders. I will also be going over how to share and collaborate with other Box and non-Box users.
