Move paper docs from personal to business

Helpful | Level 5

I have some Dropbox Paper files in my personal account.  I just opened a business/team account.  I must be logged into the business account in order to access the personal, as vice versa does not work.  This means I'm presented with my business paper files rather than my personal ones.  How can I move my personal paper files to my business paper workspace?  I would like to stop using the personal paper workspace entirely as the business one seems more accessible now that I have two dropbox accounts.

Hey @NathanInNJ. Thanks for joining our Community! 

I will give you the steps to transfer your Paper documents from one Dropbox account to the other. To give you the correct steps, I will need to know if both your Dropbox accounts have a Paper tab. 

New Dropbox accounts have Paper 2020. You can read about this here

Looking forward to your comment to walk you through. 

Thanks!

I'm not sure what you mean by "Tab".  There is a left hand navigation column and there is Paper below Files in this navigation.  Is this what you mean?

My business account is new (two weeks) but my personal account is several years old.

To add more details, I see that my paper files are accessed via paper.dropbox.com so I guess this means I have the old version.

Perfect @NathanInNJ. Thanks for the info.  

Then share all the Paper docs with your Business account and then transfer ownership of the docs to this account. 

Please get back to me if you need more help.
