Shared files: how do you handle this?

over 4 years ago from , UX designer

How do you handle shared files across different team members? Do you use dropbox? a shared server? and with people working from remote?

    We use Gsuite, it has Shared Drives in google drives (previously called Team Drives). Then have Google Drive file stream installed on the computer for easy access. Also we have drive integrated with Slack. We use naming conventions so that if multiple people are working on the same thing (And its not a doc that multiple people can be on at once such as a sketch file) their name is then in the file name, we will routinely merge into one "master" file.

    yes we use Gsuite too, after going around to try Box and Dropbox, Gsuite still works because most of our customers use that. I've signed up for 2 Gsuite accounts. One for myself as main admin and another for designers to use. They come from all over the world, hence fully remote. They all use this one account to access the drive. Our team is still small hence this still works well. Each team member is in charge of different groups of customers, but they may have to stand in for anyone on leave etc. Hence, this one account to allow access for everyone helps.

    We use a local server but the performance sucks. It's possible that the server hardware is just too old but we are discussing a cloud-based solution.
