Five time-saving steps to take before Labor Day

Labor Day is just about here, and that means come next Tuesday it’s time once again for the full-on work sprint until the holidays. Before you head out to the Hamptons and pack away your white pants, here are five time-saving tips to make your worklife post-Labor Day that much easier.

1. Archive old Workspaces. Streamline what you see when you sign into Onehub by removing clutter. If there are old or outdated Worskpaces that you and your team don’t use anymore, archive them! They’ll remain accessible, but will be hidden from view so you can focus on what’s important right now. Read More…

Exhorting the use of exporting lists

We rotate working the weekend support desk here at Onehub, as it gives everyone a chance to interact with customers and learn how they are using our product. I recently pulled a weekend shift and got a request for how to export a list of files and folders in a Workspace.

It’s a feature that’s easy to explain, and one that’s probably useful to a lot of people with expansive Workspaces, so I thought I’d share the answer here. And, while we’re on the subject of exporting lists, now seems like a good time to throw in how to export a list of users as well. Read More…

Do you Dashboard? You should!

New photos of Tesla’s upcoming Model 3 “leaked” online recently. It looks beautiful, and one thing I appreciate most in Teslas is the simple layout of the dashboard. Instead of a dizzying array of buttons and knobs, there is a simple touchscreen providing you with everything you need.

You can create your own beautiful dashboard in Onehub as well. Dashboards are a great way to centralize important information for a Workspace and keep it at your users’ fingertips for quick access. Read More…

Real solutions for real estate agents

Onehub is based in Seattle, which, anyone here will tell you, is one of the hottest real estate markets in the country. The median home price in Seattle hit $700,000 this year, double what it was five years ago. A recent CNN Money article called buying a house in the Emerald City “particularly brutal.”

While this is certainly a very real problem for potential home buyers in our region, it certainly keeps area real estate agents busy. But, as a recent Bloomberg article points out, cloud computing is taking some of the busywork out of an agent’s job. They can spend less time on logistics and more time on selling. Read More…

Summer School: How interns can learn Onehub (without you)

While summer isn’t officially here yet, the sun is shining and colleges across the country are commencing with commencements. Hordes of fresh graduates are entering the workforce, many of them starting with that time honored tradition of being an intern.

While interns are bright-eyed and eager to work (for free!), let’s be honest — it can be a drag on your productivity to take time out to train them. For those of you with interns on the horizon, fear not! We can help you get them (and any new employees) up to speed quickly on your Onehub file sharing with our video tutorial series.

Some basic tips for securing data in the cloud

This story originally appeared as a post over on the blog of Onehub’s sister product, Marshal. But it had some good, general tips for securing your data in the cloud, so we thought we’d re-post it here. 

As a refresher, Marshal is a new online tool that can scan your cloud accounts (such as Box, Dropbox, Onehub and more) to uncover any exposed sensitive data you may be storing. You can try it by running a free scan right now.  

Marshal is just a piece when puzzling out your security strategy

I take a ferry into work and often people will leave jigsaw puzzles out for passengers to complete. It’s quaint and a relaxing way to pass the time.

Data security, on the other hand is a puzzle that is neither quaint nor relaxing. It requires constant vigilance, which is why we built Marshal. But Marshal is just a piece of your overall security strategy. Read More…
