Feature Request: Assign a Task inside a table in Dropbox Paper.

Level 5

Hi, 

Not sure if this is the right place to suggest a new feature but it would be handy to be able to assign a task to someone with a deadline within a table. 

Best regards,

Géraud

Hey @Géraud, welcome to our community! 

That's a great idea. A good place to suggest new features is our Share an Idea section here, where I’ve moved your post to winking face
 
I’ll also make note of you suggestion in my internal report, and send it directly to our Paper team. 

Cheers

I need the ability to create tables and assign tasks and due dates from within them. Tables allow for clean viewing but are pretty much worthless in Paper
