Admins: Enforce complex passwords and two-factor authorization

Last week brought news that not one but two vital internet services experienced bugs that exposed user passwords. On May 1, code repository site, Github announced that “a small number of user passwords” were exposed, and then two days later, Twitter suffered a similar error that caused the company to recommend everyone change their password.

In both cases, passwords were exposed, unencrypted on an internal logging site. Neither company reported any malfeasance as a result of the exposure, but it makes for a great time to remind you:

  1. No one at Onehub has access to your password.
  2. Everything we do at Onehub is encrypted from end-to-end.
  3. Should you want, we offer Onehub account admins the ability to enforce complex passwords, require password changes, and to enforce two-factor authentication.

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. Continue reading

My wife and I have two very different approaches to organizing the files on our computer. She likes to create a very specific hierarchy of folders and sub folders, each properly categorized and labeled.

I prefer just dumping everything on the desktop and figuring it out later.

Whether you are more like my better half with your Onehub Workspaces or like me (come to the dark side!), we make finding what you’re looking for a snap with our full-text search. Continue reading

Tap into the insights of our Activity Report

User_Activity_FilterTechnology lets us keep track of every minute detail of our lives. How many steps we take, the hours we sleep, how many calories we consume. By tracking things, we can get a bigger picture of our overall wellbeing.

It’s the same idea with Onehub’s Activity Report feature. By providing you a log of every event that happens in your account: What files are uploaded, by whom, who has accessed them and when, what was done with the files, etc., you get a better sense of your overall file sharing.

Our Activity Report also helps you understand how people are using your data — and in some cases, can help you make better business decisions in ways that might not immediately come to mind. Continue reading

Three ways to speed up your Onehub workflow

screen-shot-2017-01-04-at-9-48-22-amWe’re just a few days into the new year. You are probably slowly coming to the realization that holidays are over and work is the new normal (again). As always, we at Onehub want to make your work life easier. Don’t think of these as resolutions, think of it as three quick ways you can get work done faster and more efficiently (so you can get back to your real resolutions).

img_3207We got snowed in up here in the Pacific Northwest this past weekend. Hearty midwesterners and east coasters may scoff at our 3 – 4 inches (which has already melted), but the brief snow caught me off guard and I hurriedly trudged around in my boots removing garden hoses and clearing out gutters.

Just as you do with your accounting, you should take a look at your business file sharing to make sure you are getting the most out of your Onehub subscription, and are prepared for the coming year. Here are a few tips to help you out. Continue reading
