Dropbox Passwords OTP and import from 1Password

Dropbox Passwords OTP and import from 1Password

Helpful | Level 6

I am currently looking into the Passwords App from Dropbox, as I don't want to follow 1Password into the cloud and another subscription. The Dropbox Passwords app looks like a good idea but lacks some basic features or I am to blind to find them. For example an OTP creator like several PW apps offer. It is completly pointless for me to import my 1PW logins when I have to rely on an external OTP app because I use 2FA in every login possible.
 
Which brings me to the import feature via .csv that simply does not work. I export my logins from 1PW then import this file to DB Passwords and then it simply quits with this message: No accounts found. It might be possible that the .csv file was empty or not correctly formatted. Make sure the file is not empty and try again.

 
What would be a false format? I can choose to export a .csv in 1PW seperated with commas, I can import a .csv in DB passwords seperated with commas. So how should I know what to do? 1PW import is not an edge case scenario given that this app is a kind of standard for this segment for years. So why is this already one of the first things that fails? 
I really appreciate the service of storing my passwords in dropbox, but features are nearly not existent here for people willing to change services.
 
Is there any roadmap for bringing more basic features like a working import from most used apps like 1PW and OTP service?
 
Best
