Send an email to a Paper doc

Send an email to a Paper doc

Sometimes, or actually many times, a client will send me information about a new poject via email. Next I want to transfer all that information from the email easily to a paper doc, including all attachments. Usually it would be a new Paper doc, from which I would attempt to then do all collaborating from the Paper app after that. I wish I could easily send an email to a Paper doc, with all attachments.

I would absolutely appreciate this functionality. These days my workflow revolves kkeeping all relevant informatio in my note-taking app. I do not longer use email to store relevant information. Thus it would be great to have this automated. As reference I use Readdle Spark email and it lets me save into Evernote. Other allow to forward email to a specific address and that becomes a document. Thanks.

I use Outlook for work and personal (gmail) email and am on a Mac. I'd like to be able to save emails and attachments to Dropbox Paper. I don't think that's possible now, but I'd like it.

Thanks,

Hilary

Actually, it surprises me that Dropbox hasn't made this a default feature. Perhaps there is way around but I don't think so since you can't generate a paper doc from a dropbox, say word document. I think you can send docs into dropbox, or automate it via iftt or a list of automation providers, .. but there is the link to paper missing a lot in these integration options. A simple email feature like Pocket or evernote have, or the ifftt , zapier action fields to achieve this would be great ! Dropbox, please!!..
