Coming to Dropmark in 2014

2013 was a fun year for Dropmark. We introduced the Dashboard view with new privacy settings, quick upload, and collection merging. We added commenting, geo-location, and metadata support to Dropmark items. Then we doubled your storage just because. 2014 is shaping up to be another great year and we just wanted to give you a little sneak peek at a few of the things coming soon to Dropmark.

New dashboard features

Today we are rolling out the new dashboard view for all users.

The dashboard introduces a new top-level overview of all your collections, new privacy settings, and a public view to share certain collections with the world. Read all about it on our blog post.

Along with today’s release, we are also excited to introduce two new dashboard features:

Quick upload

Now you can quickly add items to any collection right from your dashboard, making it easier to keep your uploads organized. Drag and drop from your desktop or the web onto any collection stack, and your items will be uploaded on the spot.

Merge collections

Image

Easily merge all items from one collection into another. Just drag any collection stack from your dashboard, and drop it into the collection menu. All items from the first collection will be moved over to the second collection.

Introducing Dashboard view

Image

Dropmark is all about organization. For those of you who have more than a few collections on the go, new features are coming to make your experience even better.

Dashboard view

The new dashboard gives you a top-level overview of all your collections. Preview item thumbnails, privacy settings, and get a quick overview of who else is collaborating on each collection. Pro users can even search, sort, and change thumbnail settings with the recently launched search bar.

New privacy settings

Dropmark collections are always private by default (viewable only by invited collaborators), with the option to set a collection to public (viewable by anyone you share the link with). Today we are introducing a new privacy setting we call “Everyone”, and making these settings much easier to view and change.

Public dashboard

Your new public dashboard lives at username.dropmark.com and shows any collections you wish to openly share with the world. To opt-in, choose the new “Everyone” privacy setting for each collection you wish to share (your existing collections will be unaffected). Pro users can also set up a custom domain name (ie. yourname.com).

These features will be rolled out to everyone on March 1st. Pro users have early access and can start using their new Dashboard today.

UPDATE: Dashboard is now available to all users, plus we are excited to introduce  two new features!

New monthly pricing

Today we are happy to introduce a new monthly pricing plan for Pro accounts.

Now you can get the full Dropmark experience for just $5 per month, less than the cost of your lunch.

Pro accounts include:

Yearly plans are available at $48/year (a 20% savings).
