What happend with the Paper dashboard?

Explorer | Level 4

Hello!

So, I'm a new user of Dropbox Paper, but I remember that there was a dashboard just for Paper. Something like paper.dropbox.com. But now when I go there it creates a new .paper file. Something that I liked about paper was the ability to create a task in different documents but having them available on the Paper's dashboard. Now the only way I can see my tasks is by opening a .paper file.

Any ideas on how can I see my Paper dashboard? It's like they took away one of my favorites features.

I'll appreciate your help

Hello @Caorregob!

Welcome to Dropbox Community and the new Dropbox Paper! 

Since the account is new you get to try the 2020 Paper version, which allows you to create Paper docs and folders, in the same place where you create your normal files!

Your Paper version has all the functionalities the old Paper offered. Here are a few threads where users are asking for this feature you now have

Thank you @Fiona for your answer. I love to know that I'm using the next version and I like the centralization. My concern it's because I'm missing being able to see my tasks without having to open a .paper, or maybe I'm not seeing how to do It.

I can help with that @Caorregob

You can create a folder for your Paper docs in your Files page and write an overview for it. This will revert this to a Dropbox space!  You can add "to do's", files, mentions on your folders on Dropbox.com and on your desktop. Want to know more about Dropbox Spaces? See how this will look like in our blog here.  

You can also checks this help center article for more details: https://help.dropbox.com/files-folders/share/dropbox-spaces

Let me know if you need help creating a Dropbox space for your Paper docs and all your feedback for Dropbox spaces. 

Thanks. Have a nice weekend!

Why can't I open the paper.dropbox.com website?

Hey, why can't I see the paper.dropbox.com link. When I go to paper.dropbox.com, I always go back to dropbox.com, I am using a Google account to sign up. What's the problem?

We don't yet have a timeframe as to when Paper 2020 will be available to all. 

Thank you so much for your interest @Bob R.4!

Helpful | Level 6

How is it that new users have access to this functionality but those of us that have asked for it for (some for years) aren't able to use it? Should we not have been the first to use it? I've stuck with paper since we use Dropbox and because I thought continuous improvements would be coming. This is becoming more and more limiting the more I use it. I don't need new tabs or stickers or templates. I need things that actually add to the usefulness and functionality of the platform. Incredibily dissapointed in this rollout being only for new users. Forget those of us that have already been paying for it!

Great question @TiffanyP15

Technically the old Dropbox Paper has a different set up than the Paper 2020 Dropbox accounts. New users get the new interface right away but switching the existing old interface to the new takes a few more engineering steps I guess.

Our team is working on rolling improvements out over the coming months, for our existing Paper users so that we can provide the best Paper experience for all our users. 

Here is a help center article that briefly touches on some more details: https://help.dropbox.com/files-folders/paper/different-version

Thank you for your interest!
