Paper and Team Best Practices

Collaborator | Level 8

I've set up a Team (under my Dropbox Pro account)  and signed up for Paper Beta for the sole purpose of sharing files and documents with that specific Team.

I'm finding it very confusing how to integrate Paper with that Team 

If someone could clarify how to achieve this (if it's possible) or it was necessary to establish the link between Paper and a Team at the very outset.

Dropbox is asking me if I want to link Paper to my "personal" dropbox account  but I am very reluctant to do that based on what I have read in the forums.

Hi Bob

Dropbox Paper works with Teams by default. You don't need to configure anything out of the box. So everyone who is on your team will automatically see your Paper folders and you will see them as contacts when sharing individual docs.

If you are sharing with people outside your team, you will need to enter their full email address. To see the members of your team, go to:

https://www.dropbox.com/team

Regarding the your worries around linking to your personal Dropbox, what issues or threads are you referring to?

Thank you for your reply. The enclosed screen grabs should explain my dilemma.

It would appear that I set something up wrong since the documents in PAPER don’t appear in the SHUPP Team folder. I’m also not sure why the SHUPP icon under my account is grayed out. 
The two, Paper and Team seem to be completely separate entities. When I am in Paper I don't even have a way to move back to my Dropbox files/folders.><img id=><br><br><br>

Despite my best efforts, I cannot get my dropbox Pro account to work "seamlessly" with Team and paper. As I've shown in the above screen grabs there is wall between them. Before I go too far down this path, Is it possible to simply delete my paper account and then start over, this time connecting the new paper account directly to the SHUPP team folder? Or should I delete that also and start over there as well?
