FR: Saving dropbox paper to existing Dropbox team folder

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?

Re: saving dropbox paper to existing dropbox team folder

Hi Liz

Integrating Paper into the filesystem is something we are looking into. Out of curiosity, what are you trying to achieve by having your Paper docs in Dropbox? How does it help you?

We would love to hear your thoughts!

Hi Kaz

We are using paper for collaborative documents and once complete we want to be able to save them to our team folder. We've found it useful, so far, as it allows you to see who has contributed what and is easy to follow what's going on. We've had shared folders for a while in dropbox but have found that this is just more intuitive.

Thanks for following up Liz!

Re: saving dropbox paper to existing dropbox team folder

I will also chime in that sharing Paper docs to existing folders within my personal file structure would be awesome. I actually assumed Paper would do this and was very excited, but it does not as of yet. To answer the question you asked the other Liz, I am hoping to have Paper replace Evernote, mainly because I hate the file structure of Evernote. I thought this would be a way to keep notes related to a specific program or event in the same place as all other files for the event in Dropbox (I work at a museum so have multiple projects going on at once). I also share a lot of Dropbox folders with graphic designers where I upload copy and other content, and being able to add a Paper page for dialog or explanation into those shared folders would be convenient.

Yes to everything Elizabeth M. said.

Yes, this is what I want to do as well. I am a web designer and I use Dropbox to share files with clients. I want to be able to put Paper docs into the folder that I am already sharing with them, for things like to-do's that they need to complete, questionnaires they need to fill out, and so on. I want to keep these in the same place as the other files for the project -- easier for the client and for me.

Re: saving dropbox paper to existing dropbox team folder

I thought Paper would also be able to be save to a folder.  Why double handle!! I have allocated folders for allocated projects (like most people) and to have work in different parts of Dropbox doesn't make things easier. I work collaboratively and want all files for projects kept together.  

Im also have trouble trying to 'save' Paper.  I try to exit (I use safari) and it warns me there are unsafe comments.  Any advice?

Dropbox Paper will be virtually useless to us until we can integrate Paper docs in our regular team folders. If and when we are able to do that, it'll be the next best thing to jet packs.

Kind of baffled as to why this wasn't enabled as part of the MVP. Surely the whole point of paper is that we can mix collaboratively edited documents in shared folders with other types of document.  It makes me wonder if dropbox has any idea how their product is used.
