Allow App Folders in Paper like in Dropbox

Allow App Folders in Paper like in Dropbox

Hello,

It would be nice if we could have "App Folders" in Paper just like in Dropbox where third-party applications can have folders inside of paper that they are able to read from. I am working on an app with Dropbox paper but as of now, I need permission to read their whole dropbox files which isn't that secure.

Thanks! That sounds like a good idea. I can't make any promises, but I'll send this along as a feature request.

I have the following problem. 

I shared a link with someone to a specific file. 

By chance rechecked the link and it opens access to my home file !!

That means everyone with the link can access all my files. 

Could you please help me on not allowing access to my files. 

I could I do? 

Gratefully yours, 

David

@DavidTeste When you share a link to a file with someone, they only get access to that file.

If you yourself access that link while signed in to your own account, you will see that file in your account, and can browse to the rest of your files. Someone else, not signed in to your account, can't access the rest of your files.
