Folder tree view

I mainly use dropbox paper for my school notes and documents and as of now it's quite a mess to navigate between folders. With a Tree View it would be easier to manage, and if this view could be added to the sidebar, that would help a lot!

 

Thanks!

Tree view shoulda been in Dropbox from day 1.

(Both web view and desktop app view)

 

Can't believe years later we are still asking for this very basic and much needed feature!!!

Completely agree, tree view for Paper is sorely needed.  We need better tools to navigate, sort, and manipulate Paper folders and files.  The current tools are archaic and tedious.

+1 great idea

With Windows at least (not sure about Mac) what I do is open different browser windows and you can drag and drop between them. So, I have the main folders in one window and open another window for the folder I'm working on. I also create bookmarks/favourites for the various folders/groups of folders, which makes it easier to jump around. Seems to work fine, though is still a workaround that we shouldn't need to do.

I stopped using paper because it got too messy and I can't lose all that time managing papers and folders (come on, it's 2017!).

 

Now I'm using Notion.so - something Paper could had been since the beggining... :(

Yes... can we get this?  We're moving our team over assuming there will be a lot of progress on Paper... and I hope this is something you launch.

 

Skip the integrations work... let's get Paper dialed! slightly smiling face

added to needed -- https://paper.dropbox.com/doc/PAPER-CUT-5EUgohzPdAsa8LeCKPziX

 

current status: i haven't used dropbox paper for a long time

 

why

 

* the devs working on paper seems be understaffed

 

* they dont any helpful or useful features

 

goal: doing a yearly checkup to see if anything is going to be added soon

It's actually quite unbelievable that tree view, the most standard view in file browsing since the first GUI has developed 40 years ago, seems deliberately left out.  I mean, they had to decide on SOME view... and they decided on a view that is completey based on the semi-random actions of what got viewed most recently!?!?  They thought that was more important than an organized structure that the content owner actually thought about?  I would love to hear the reasoning behind their decision.
