Advantages of using Yumpu with Dropbox
With this improvement, using Yumpu has become even easier. As soon as the connection has been created, you can easily Drag and Drop further documents into the Dropbox folder. Everything else is done automatically. This way, even colleagues who do not have their own Yumpu accounts can create contents and publish them online within minutes. Right after uploading your contents, you will receive an email from Yumpu including the link to the magazine you created. If you connected your website and/or app with Yumpu, the new magazine will appear there as well within minutes.
Additionally, if you connected your Yumpu account to social media, all of your “friends” and “followers” will see your new offers virtually in real time. Moreover, with Yumpu you can improve the reach of your magazine as they are being published on the Yumpu website and therefore available to any interested user.
In addition, this function enables a faster and more efficient employment of external colleagues or colleagues working in other time zones. With the Dropbox upload function, anyone can post ready-to-publish PDF files to Yumpu or other online media within minutes. A confirmation email is sent to the responsible person to inform him/her once new magazines are available online. This improves the general overview over all new publications.
Under “Connect” you can manage and maintain all connections (you may connect several Dropbox folders to different areas on Yumpu). A log will show any actions taken by Yumpu.com. Just one click will allow you to disable this connection.
Moreover, you can easily remove any brochures from the website which are no longer up-to-date. In order to do so, simply delete the magazine in the Yumpu document manager. The Yumpu Dropbox application recognizes when synchronization has taken place and will prevent the old PDF file from being available online. You can also replace the old file in your Dropbox folder with a revised copy; it will become available within minutes and sent to your website once again.
Example: Provide your external colleagues with current brochures
A colleague is on the road doing external work while a brochure for a new product has been created. The brochure is being uploaded to Dropbox as PDF file at the office. A few minutes later, the brochure is available on the company’s website and app. Just minutes after the new brochure has been created, the external colleague will be able to present it to a potential client on his tablet. At any time, the external colleague has full access to the most current information and documents.
Comfort and high functionality
The connection between Dropbox and Yumpu guarantees that your company’s website as and all products are constantly up-to-date. In addition, you benefit from Yumpu’s broad impact to reach new potential customers.
Using this feature is very simple and enables even colleagues who do not have access to Yumpu to create e-magazines and publish them online virtually in real time.
