Integrate Slack with Dropbox Paper To-dos functionality

Integrate Slack with Dropbox Paper To-dos functionality

I love managing cross-functional projects in Dropbox Paper. The To-Dos functionality is excellent! That said, my teams also do a lot of work in Slack, and it's a bummer that there's not currently a way (that I know of) to turn Slack messages into To-Dos in paper besides the manual route. Right now, I create slack reminders, then go through the list of reminders when I have time and manually copy them to a doc in Paper and reformat them as To-dos. I'm aware that Slack integrates with other task management tools like Todoist and Asana, but really don't want to adopt an additional tool when Paper already does so much excellent work for us on these projects. I'd love to be able to select a message in Slack and auto-magically create a To-Do in Paper. Thoughts?

Process note: I see that this wound up in Work Smarter with Dropbox - intended it for Share an idea, not sure what error I made to result in it being here, or how to move it. That said, I'd welcome any input from the community.

Hi, this sounds like a great idea. As you are probably aware, new features get built if there are enough votes for them on the forums, so lets hope enough people see the usefuless.

 

In the meantime I'll try out some tests myself to see if there's a way to get this working.

 

Thanks

Thanks for the help, lukeyo 🙂

I manage a similar platform to this for my own team's product engancement request intake and backlog - definitely know what you mean about the votes helping out - cheers!

Hi there, this idea is going to need a bit more support before we share your suggestion with our team.

I think adding this integration would greatly improve our workflow as well. The email notifications are good, but they get lost with all the other emails. Being able to see these todos in our slack channels or even assign them there would make this function much more usable for us.
