When do webhooks fire when editing Paper docs?

When do webhooks fire when editing Paper docs?

Hi,

Could anyone provide more detail on the webhook policy when editing an 'auto-saving' document like Paper? The document appears to save automatically according to changes made and some idle time - does a webhook notification (potentially) fire each time this happens?

Thanks in advance!

Dropbox doesn't send webhook notifications for changes to Paper documents, but we'll consider it a feature request. I can't promise a timeline for if/when that might get added though.

Ah, that's a real shame - that's a deal breaker for my use case.

I did find through testing that changing a .paper file locally in a text editor did cause a notification to fire consistently. Also, making changes in the Dropbox desktop app also triggered notifications, but seemingly inconsistently.

I'd really like to use Paper if I could - is there somewhere we can track the status of feature requests?

This forum thread serves as the reference for the feature request. I'll follow up here if/when I have any news on this.
