Notifications for changes to all Paper documents in a folder

Notifications for changes to all Paper documents in a folder

Our team is trying to use Paper as a wiki document. We have a header page filled with links to the other Paper docs, and we keep all these wiki Paper docs in a folder. The folder is shared with everyone on the team.

If someone creates a new Paper doc, the team is notifed via email 2 hours later. Heart
However, if someone edits an existing doc (either the header page or an existing page). they get no notification. :broken_heart:

I know that if they "Follow" every single page in the wiki, then they will get notified of changes, but this seems extremely tedious.

Essentially, I would like a "Watch" level of notifications for a Paper Folder, as GitLab has

Is there a way to set this up somehow, or perhaps is this a feature the Paper team is working on? :slight_smile:

Hello @anyam!

Thank you so much for your interest! :grinning:

Currently you can only get notified when you are following the docs as you correctly mentioned. There is no way to automatically follow all docs at the time. :slight_frown:

Note for users that are not familiar with Paper notifications. :pushpin:

List of notifications you can check on the web: https://www.dropbox.com/account/notifications?role=work

You can manage the docs you are following clicking "Manage followed docs" 

Our Paper team reviews all feature requests but we have no info as to if and when this will be a feature in Dropbox Paper. 

Valid feature request though and thank you for posting about this! :white_check_mark:

Cheers!
