10 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do with Droplr

Droplr has a lot of features, think you know them all? After years of using it day in and day out, our customers find new ways to use Droplr that we haven’t even thought about.

Without further ado, here’s our top 10:


1. Everything you capture is automatically copied to your clipboard as a short link

All you have to do is paste, and your custom link is right there. You can do this by right clicking on your mouse and select paste, or use the keyboard shortcut ‘command + v’ and you’re all set!


2. Share multiple links at the same time

If your like us, and have many links you want to share, Slack doesn’t care – it will preview all the links even if you paste 10 of them at once, just try it out!


3. Drag and drop anything for easy file sharing

If you’re like most people, you probably have a cluttered desktop. All you have to do is drag any file up to your menubar and Voila! Your files are safe in the cloud.


4. Shorten a link with a single click

Use Twitter much? Shorten any lengthy URL link quicker than you can go to bitly.com.


5. See how many times your drops have been viewed

See who has opened your last sent invoice or how many times your documents have been opened. For a quick count, just use the dropdown to see the number on the right. In the dashboard, see more detailed stats by clicking on the drop to see your top referrers and total visits.


6. Create a self destructing file

We all share some things we don’t want to keep around forever. Maybe it’s credit card information, or maybe a time sensitive document. Just toggle the individual drop to change the settings. You can also password protect them from here as well!


7. Capture a reaction GIF

8. Use this shortcut to get to your Droplr dashboard fast
