Adobe announced Adobe Acrobat for Box

Adobe and Box have been working together to help people from small businesses to enterprises work with PDFs stored in Box. Joint customers have been using Adobe Acrobat DC and the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to open files and get work done with PDFs in Box, as well as sending documents to be signed directly from Box using Adobe Sign. Today, we’ve delivered a new solution to help make enterprise workers’ lives a bit easier, Adobe Acrobat for Box. The Adobe Acrobat for Box integration helps employees access essential PDF and e-signature workflows directly in Box. Employees can stay in the cloud and no longer need to download the file to their individual desktop. IT can flip the ‘on’ switch from the Box Admin console for employees who use Box have access.

Users will have the following capabilities directly within Box:

  • View PDFs with an integrated Acrobat web viewer with search and annotation tools.
  • Create PDFs that preserve fonts, formatting, and layouts.
  • Modify and organize existing PDFs with the available delete, reorder, and rotate capabilities.
  • Combine multiple file types including PDF, Microsoft Office, image, text, and Adobe design into one that you can use for archiving or distribution.
  • Export PDFs into editable Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or RTF files that preserve fonts, formatting, and layouts.
  • Send a document for signature and track its progress with Adobe Sign from the Box Recommended Apps experience, a list of curated, contextual applications that customers see whenever they preview a file in Box.
  • Capture e-signatures in the Box Activity Stream, a central place to view all the activity related to a file both on Box and across all third-party applications

WordPress.com announces all-new P2 for remote team collaboration

WordPress.com publicly launched an all-new version of its remote work collaboration tool P2 — the “secret sauce” behind Automattic‘s 15-year success as a fully distributed company, with over 1,200 employees working from 77 countries. It’s the first time that P2 has been released as a standalone product for small and large teams to collaborate. Automattic has built a refined version, which focuses on communication that is asynchronous, accessible across time zones, and allows teams to organize plans, projects, and big picture ideas, communicating across the entire company.

P2 is a companion to real-time tools like chat and videoconferencing. P2 can be used as internal blogs that move teams and organizations away from siloed email inboxes, and it helps minimize things “getting lost” in real-time chat. Teams working on any type of project together can write and post regular updates. Through comments on posts, teams can come to a consensus and decide together what to do next. They can share photos, videos, GIFs, and charts, or they can take a poll, and share quotes and summaries from the day’s work. P2 can be more broadly used as external team blogs to organize communities and events. P2 teams see updates on the web, via email notifications, and in the WordPress mobile apps. P2 is the glue that gives your team an identity and coherence. This current version of P2 is free for users, who can create as many P2 sites as they need. More premium features are coming soon.
