integrating Dropbox and Dropbox Paper

Collaborator | Level 9

our organization is attemting to better organize our documents and files through our shared dropbox folder (and subfolders) and through Dropbox Paper. These documents consist of a variety of formats from PDF's, word documents, graphics, and Dropbox Paper documents which are currently unconnected from the shared dropbox folder. Is there a best practices that people can suggest to integrate the two seemingly seperate file structures? Is there a way to link or create an alliase in Dropbox to a dropbox paper document?

Hi @Bob R.4

At present, no, they are two totally separate systems. Fingers crossed this does change in the future though!

I tried a little experiment and created a workaround to integrate Dropbox Paper Docs and Dropbox; an experiment. 
I opened a Dropbox Paper Doc and copied the share link. 
I then created a text file on my desktop and pasted the link into the text file. 
I saved the text file as a PDF and placed it in a Dropbox folder. 
When I open the PDF on my desktop and click the link it takes me right to the Paper document online, HOWEVER if I open the PDF in dropbox in my browser and click on the link I get a 404 error. 
I think I am onto something here in my efforts to link Dropbox paper and dropbox. 
But I'd love to know why the link will work from the PDF opened on my desktop but not when it's opened in Dropbox online.
If I cut and paste the link in the browser it works fine.
