It's simplistic, quick and 'just works'.

You can now work on it offline using mobile devices and have it upload and sync when reconnected to the internet.

It allows for quick collaborative content development.

1) The ability of working like a "hub" for files, discussions and small pieces of information, which are usually spread over tons of emails, Whatsapp conversations, Dropbox or Google drive folders and so on.

 

2) Paper allows the creation of a truly, wiki-like knowledge base.

 

3) The symplicity of its formatting options.

"truly, wiki-like info base"

and not jus a 'wiki-like info base'?

I think it was jus a translation issue from my original tongue. You can just cut this word off from the sentence

highly limited

 

'formatting options' --

 

everything has that, this still doesn't have colours

 

 

needs claification 

 

'files, discussions and small pieces of information'

 

everything does that

 

 

non-unique

 

'wiki-like knowledge' --

 

are you talking about collaboration, gdocs already does that

I'm talking about something bigger than G Docs. Even bigger than Dropbox Paper, as I realized after meeting other services like Notion.so and Confluence.

 

In my opinion, the future of Dropbox depends on its hability to meet companies's needs in knowledge management area, like those two services I've mentioned.

do you

 

or anyone know if notion has find-replace all 'files/notes'?

 

and the other things needed?

 

havent used notion yet cos the site is pretty bad and a mess

 

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

 

backup copy in case dropbox starts deleting posts -- https://paper.dropbox.com/doc/PAPER-CUT-5EUgohzPdAsa8LeCKPziX
