How to share files in the cloud using Dropbox

How to share files in the cloud using Dropbox

Dropbox is a safe and secure way to share documents, pictures, and video files. Since they are stored in the cloud, your hard drive won’t be bogged down. You are protected with up to 120 days of version history and deletion recovery. You can invite specific people to share your files, and designate what types of permissions other users have to your files. All changes automatically update, and can be accessed from all devices, provided you have the app downloaded and set up to sync. Each user must enter a six digit security code to log in, or you can authorize a one-time sign in, using active directory. If you or your company are sharing files with someone who is no longer part of your organization, with administrator privileges, you can suspend or delete a user’s account as needed. Also, you can implement an expiration date if the person/persons only need access for a specific amount of time, so they’re log ins will no longer be effective. There is also a Dropbox badge that will appear if one of the files is being updated/changed/edited by another member, which will prevent confusion or duplication on projects. As an added layer of protection, Dropbox offers remote wipe, in the case that someone’s device is stolen or lost, which will prevent access to documents. Setting up an account is quick and easy when using the Basic/Standard version. I have had this for a few years now, and although the layout has changed from time to time, the ease of navigation has never stumped me. The main menu is fairly simple. You would...

How To Prepare and get HDI SCA Certified (Help Desk Institute Support Center Analyst)

The Information Technology field is ever growing, especially in security and support. Education is crucial in order to actually obtain a position in these fields. Also, while having a degree in IT is indeed helpful in not only knowing what to do in the field you plan on working in, most IT companies require a degree in such fields, usually an Associates. However, in order to actually get noticed by those companies when you attempt to apply for a career in your field of choosing, getting a certification in your field certainly does help you in your endeavor. Certifications aren’t requirements usually, but, compared to possibly the many others applying for the position you want, they certainly do help your chances in getting noticed. A certification shows that you took the extra steps in order to further yourself and your education to obtain a position in preferred area, it also shows that you know what to do if you’re employed in the career you want. Certifications vary largely to the areas in IT. In addition, all certifications require you paying for them, studying the information provided, and passing the exam in the end. The particular certification I’m going over is the HDI SCA (Help Desk Institute Support Center Analyst) certification. This certification is particular to the support field of IT, if the name of the certification wasn’t obvious enough. How would one prepare for this certification? How exactly is it helpful for you to have this certification? Hopefully I’ll be to help with that. Why is this certification something to consider getting? Because you are most likely to have...

For many users, new technology is exciting and inviting.  When a new is implemented at work the result is productivity – getting more things done … and things done much faster than the old system allowed.  However, other users are skeptical about digital transformation.  For these employees, the old system worked well, and the new system brings confusion, anxiety, and frustration.  The rate of a person’s or group’s progress in gaining experience or new skills is usually slow.  Training seminars, flowcharts, organizational charts, implementation charts, manuals, memorandums, etc. seems endless and time-consuming.  All employees need to understand how new systems will benefit them and their respective jobs. The pace of technological advances in the workplace is often slow because of several factors, including budget and many people do not want to have their routines disrupted.   Managers and training personnel need to get employees comfortable crossing the bridge to technological improvement.  It is important to understand how to implement a new system in the workplace. COMMUNICATIONS Keep employees updated on possible technological changes – this means from the exploratory point up to the final launch date.  Outline the benefits and how the implementation of a new system will impact each employee and the overall productivity of the business. CUSTOMIZE TRAINING The rate of familiarity and interest in technology varies greatly.  Whether an individual is an auditory, visual, or a kinesthetic learner, we all absorb information differently. Modify training sessions to accommodate different types of learners by providing a range of learning styles and materials.  Present options such as documents, live training, interactive social media tools, and videos that will be...
