I successfully installed the Dropbox Paper app in Slack, but when I use the /paper [search term] command, it is unable to find any of my docs. The only time the search returns any results is when I type this: /paper Untitled This returns a ton of results. When I click on these results, it takes me to docs in my Dropbox that aren't named Untitled. It's like the Slack app thinks all of my docs are called Untitled.
Also, when I try to create a new doc with /paper new [title], I get "http_service_error"
Can someone help with either of these issues?
Hi @danicabarnes; welcome to our Community!
I'd really like to look into this matter with you; would it be OK if I reached out via the email address that's connected to your profile here so we can work on this together?
While we're at it, could you restart Slack for me and let me know if you're still seeing the same behavior?
I am also having a problem with Dropbox Paper search results in Slack. I get no search results at all unless I type the beginning of the name of a Dropbox Paper file exactly. Searching on strings that are within the title of a document, or on the contents of documents, returns no results.
When I do get a result be typing the exact beginning of a file name, I only get a single result, even if there are multiple files that begin with the same text.
Is all of this by design, or is there some configuration I am overlooking? If the former, then the integration is not very useful.
Hi peeps; how are you today?
I just sent you both a brief message so we can investigate further.
Whenever you get the chance, please take a look at your inboxes and we'll take it from there.
Hi @tarnation; thanks for joining our discussion and sorry to hear you're also having issues with creating new docs when using the Slack integration for Paper.
As I'd like to get a better view of the matter at hand, can I send you an email to the address that's associated with your profile here on our Community so we can have a further look into this?
Let me know here when you get the chance and we'll take it from there.
Have a lovely weekend in the meantime!
Hi @cupper3; thanks for joining our discussion here!
We are still working on adding the features from the original Paper to the new version.
I don't have a timeframe on the Slack feature being added to the newest version of Dropbox Paper, however, I will make sure to keep you posted through this thread.
I hope this helps!
