Saving Paper docs to existing Dropbox folder structure/file-system.

Hi

A number of us have started using dropbox paper at work. We want to save documents that we create in paper to an existing Team folder but I can't see how to do this. Any ideas anyone?

If true, that is exciting!

We've been looking for this feature since 2015? How come it hasn't risen to the level of notice of the Dropbox developers? Their integration will come in handy and would love for this feature to be available in the near future.

the fact that has yet to be addressed is profoundly furstrating.

Dropbox has said they are rolling it out later this year, but until then, you have a way solving for this. I did it. It takes some legwork, but in the end it solves the problem.

 

Ready? 

 

Create a new account. Done. 

 

Now, you say, but all my files are with my current account.

 

And therein lies the legwork. Create the new account. Migrate your files. Update your email. Update your payment info. 

 

Done. ... Better than waiting for who knows how much longer till Dropbox drops their update.

Justin, I'm curious as to how that plan handles shared folders. Does it retain the integrity of any shared folders or does the sharing need to be reestablished for each folder?

Good question, and in all fairness, I was changing my entire operation when I made the switch. ( Element 9 Design to Just Front-end ). So, well, by in large, I wasn't dealing with shared folders. There are a few instances though, where there were Papers that were shared with clients, which at this point, I'm not 100% if there's a way to migrate the paper over keeping the shared people. For me though, since branding and everything was chaning, it's not a big deal to just sever the previously shared papers and start new ones on the new account.

 

Anyway ... the other thing I'd say, that has revolutionized my workflow this year, was Dropbox's integration with G Suite. Serious game changer

 

( Side note, what's with not having nested threads here in the community. )

unfortunately I am out of steam on this one - and coupled with lack of security for publishing the Paper pages outside to external users - this has turned me off Paper completely

 

so I am winding down my use of it at our organisation, and most likely we will be looking at another stack - sorry I really wanted to use this! but it's not even MVP yet

@vza I'm with you. I've lost all interest in Paper and have only 1 client left using it. I'm working diligently to end that usage as well. It's been almost 5 years. Yes a new system is in the works, but we've seen no updates, no upgrades, no useful changes in many months. Movin' on!

Any update on integrating Dropbox Paper into the Dropbox files structure? I did do some training online recently and it was mentioned that this feature was impending.

It is the sole reason we have stopped using Paper - disassociation with our projects. 

Thanks in advance.
