Video: How to set up and use Activity Tracking in Onehub

Activity Tracking in Onehub helps boost productivity and improve data security by giving you a record of who accessed your data, when it was accessed, and what was done with it.

Activity Tracking comes as part of your Onehub account, and this video will show you how to set it up and use it. It’s part of our Onehub Tutorial video series that helps you get the most out of your subscription.

Fences, PINS, video and more protect your Onehub data

fence-server-roomKeeping your data secure is our top priority at Onehub. One of the ways we keep your data safe is by using Amazon Web Services.

When you think about data security, the first thing that comes to mind is probably some kind of “cyber” hack attack through a network. But you also have to consider physical security at datacenters. At the recent AWS Re:Invent show, Amazon detailed some of the real world measures it puts in place to safeguard data. As Fortune reports: Read More…

Use Chrome for drag-and-drop folder uploads

oh-drag-and-dropOnehub plays well with lots of browsers, so you can access your information whenever you need it, but there’s one browser that might make your Onehub experience a little easier.

Google’s Chrome has built-in features that allow you to drag and drop entire folders directly into a Onehub Workspace via the browser. Why is this cool?

  1. It makes uploading entire folders (and sub-folders) of content super easy with a simple drag-and-drop
  2. It allows you to more easily maintain your existing workflow by keeping the hierarchy of that folder’s sub-folders and files intact.

Chris Turner rides in to help Onehub customers

DSC_0292At Onehub, we hope to minimize the amount of customer support you’ll actually need, and for when it’s necessary, we want it to be the best experience for you. Our support team is staffed by real, live people (not robots), who are happy to help.

The newest addition to our team is Chris Turner, Onehub Customer Support Engineer. He’s been with us for a month now, learning the ropes from Amy and the rest of the Onehub team. Now that he’s fully ingrained, we thought we’d give him a proper introduction.

WHAT DO YOU DO AS A CUSTOMER SUPPORT ENGINEER?

When setting up a NAT gateway with Amazon VPCs, size matters

oh-dev-series-blue

Amazon’s cloud computing services have made launching an app or a startup easier than it has ever been. Sometimes getting set up may be a little too easy and you can overlook a simple step that can save your business time, frustration and money.

Paying attention to the size of your NAT gateway is really important when creating your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) computing environment, and it’s important to monitor as your business scales.

The NAT gateway is what allows your VPC to communicate with Amazon services, the Internet, and more importantly — your customers. It will impact the speed with which your end users will be able to complete the tasks they want to perform through your service. The selection of the NAT gateway instance size is a simple drop-down menu. But it’s a drop-down menu you should pay attention to! Read More…

How my startup minimizes meetings

onehub_meeting_roomI have a reputation for being direct among my employees. With that in mind I won’t bury the lead and come right out to say — most meetings are a huge waste of time and I actively encourage everyone at Onehub to build great products without them.

I’m not talking about one-on-ones or a weekly update, but rather the lumbering, overpopulated meetings that tend to cram up the average worker’s calendar. By one estimate, unnecessary meetings waste $37 billion a year in the U.S., and 47 percent of average meeting attendees said meetings were their top time waster at the office.  

To fight off meeting fatigue, here’s how I keep everyone on the Onehub team productive without bogging down their days. Read More…

With Onehub, file storage is business, not personal

business-vs-personal

Amid the Apple news last week of a new TV box, new iPhones, and a bigger iPad was the small nugget that it cut the price of its iCloud storage in half. This is great news for consumers, who have another low(er)-cost option for storing data in the cloud.

But what’s good for consumers, may not always be good for your business. People who use mass market cloud storage providers may wind up putting your corporate data in those personal accounts out of convenience or confusion if they have both a business and personal account with the same service.

The good news is that at Onehub, we’re more interested in securely hosting your company’s important financial documents than your family photos. We were built from the ground up to give businesses the best online collaboration experience. Read More…
