Hello @neosmile

Thank you for your interest in Paper 2020 

Currently, the Paper 2020 release is available to new users only. Our team is currently in the works of a new feature in order to build the best Paper experience for all our users. Old and new. 

You will hear more about this feature and your Paper docs will live in the Dropbox filesystem, when the development is finalised. 
 
What I did -because I honestly couldn't wait- is this: I created a new Dropbox account and shared my old Paper docs to it. 
 
Notes
  • "Old" Paper docs shared with Paper 2020 release users will be available in their Dropbox home and will show in Recents. 
  • Paper 2020 release docs shared with Legacy users will be available on their Dropbox home, but not in Paper. 

Here is a help center article with all the information you need. 

Feel free to ask more questions. 

Cheers!

Hello @Fiona,

 

I am having the same issue. It is very disturbing to collaborate with others who are having the 2020 version. Is there any way I can opt in to upgrade now? 

 

Thanks!

@Lusil the FAQ article links only to the main Dropbox blog, not the specific article with instructions. As the admin, I'd like to upgrade ASAP as we have outside vendors who are on 2020. This is causing confusion within the team because the contractor's Paper docs are located separately from our internal Paper docs.

 

Please advise as to how we can get upgraded to Paper 2020-- thanks!

 

P.S. Note that we're halfway through 2020, so I would have expected that the rollout would be complete by now.

Hi @Pamela_M, thanks for nudging us on this thread. 

 

Since, from what I understand, you're in a Business team, could you please contact our Support team for more info on the matter? 

 

If you'd like, you can let me know the ticket ID (eg. #1234567) that'll get created so that I can pass your comments along. 

 

Keep me posted, cheers!
