Becoming a bit more wiki-style

 

Dropbox Paper shows us a glimpse of the future. However, if it wants to become a real killer, it should allow more flexibility for outlining information (it does exist within documents, but not among them!).

 

What about becoming more wiki-style, like some past programs (SeoNote, Treepad) or present services such as Confluence and Notion.so? Why not allowing people to organize hierarchical structures according to their needs, instead of storing "papers" in "folders"? (come on, it's 2017!).

 

Please take a look at Notion.so and all will make sense.

 

I think this is the future of information management. I really want Dropbox to embrace it.

Can't agree more! I've used notion.so for a while, due to the way it shows the information as a hierarchy on the left side and the fact that this way it's super easy to navigate, rearrange and discover documents. Unfortunately it's editor has a lot of 'gotchas' whereas paper's editor is smooth as silk and really easy to get started with, but paper lacks an efficient way to navigate and rearrange documents (besides the search which is good). If you combine the document hierarchy view of notion with the smooth editor of paper, that would be the killer of Confluence, Evernote and Google Docs all at the same time.

Tottaly agree. BTW, Notion's editor got pretty much better recently.
