Have an idea about Dropbox Paper? Share it here with the other Community users like you.
Would indeed be great to be able to create templates that you can share with others so they don't have to start from scratch
Hey there! Just started testing Dropbox Paper to see if it is a useful tool for our small company. As most of our staff is working from different places the idea to combine working in Paper is terrific and this is by far the most simple yet effective tool I encountered. However, I have to agree that I'm also desperately missing a feature to create own templates and subfolders. The workaround is, well, workable but raises the risk of faults by not checking to replace all content carefully or the risk of forgetting to copy an empty "template" document and just using the actual "template". With the feature to create own templates this would grow into a power tool in no time. So is there any chance to get an update from the Dropbox staff @Kaz if this is going to be realized in the near future or at least considered?
I would also like the ability to duplicate documents or folders.
To be clear, I appreciate Dropbox keeping things simple and not implementing or duplicating Google Docs. If I wanted to use Google docs then I would. I love the design and simplicity of Dropbox more than the normal user, but I think this option could be helpful while staying true to the Dropbox way of doing things. A simple “copy” (like in Dropbox file structure options) beside move, export, and archive would be perfect.
Agree. It would be really great to be able to have the ability to create forms or templates. any chance this will come out soon ?
We need this feature too.
We'd like to use Paper to collaborate and using it as well as a project management tool.
If we could define some files and folders as "Templates", we could easly create a new project ("as it is a Folder) and replicate all the stuff that is basic for the project (e.g. Breif docs model, brainstorm model, other documents, etc...).
Let me know if you will implement this!
A very useful function would be to be able template both documents and folders so you can create a folder structure which can apply across a number of jobs with ready made templates within them. Is this likely to be a possibility.
Google Docs takes too long to open documents, but at least it has a "Make a Copy" option in the dropdown (File) menu. Dropbox paper: Currently, a simple Master/template document for student lesson plans must be re-created for each daily folder? Hopefully there is something I'm missing. Does anybody know how to 'Make a copy"? -PG13
Would it be possible to have templates that can be saved and retrieved in order to create a new page? It would be great, for instance to have a template for a journal page (diary) or a book review page with configurable parameters (e.g. date, author and so on). Thanks.
Can I create my own template or at least copy and paste one paper doc to another?
