Paper docs tree of folders

Paper docs tree of folders

We started to use a paper for our team wiki, but when you have several categories and lots of docs/permitions, its hard to orient in data layers. Tree of it will be great 👍
Guys from https://www.notion.so made a good job on that, but they are to expensive for us at the moment.

I have many docs and organising them in a hierarchy of folders and a tree view would be really useful. Thanks.

It blows my mind that this is not a thing.  A core feature of dropbox itself is its file navigation; how this is not fully integrated into dropbox or, at the very least, has a tree for notes is a total product miss for me.

This was a pretty big deal breaker and I've had to move onto a competing product.  Thanks

OK, so Dropbox desktop app was update recently and tree folders are there. Kinda working OK, but with out abilitiy to create a papper doc inside folders, but you can add google sheets and other files.

 

Are my Paper docs stored in my Dropbox folders?
For most users, Paper docs are stored separately on paper.dropbox.com. However, you may be using the 2020 release of Dropbox Paper, which allows you to store Paper docs in your Dropbox folders on dropbox.com, with your other files and folders.

Paper 2020 will allow you to continue to create, edit, and share Paper docs the same as you did before. We’re working hard to release Paper 2020 to all users in the near future. 

As per my understanding, they want add paper files inside.

If it's correct, than it will suite our workflow much better then just isolated papper docs in structure. Looking forward to such update. 

Dropbox, thank you for listening!

Hi Emma!

Wonderful news!

Where can I find further information about Paper 2020?

May I become a beta tester?

Thanks!

@Emma, we switched from Paper to OneNote because of the lack of quick folder navigation.  I hope Paper 2020 helps in that way.

Hi @Emma it's great that we'll be able to store Paper docs in our Dropbox folders, but my suggestion was for a proper Tree View on the left similar to Google Drive (and just about every other file manager out there), replacing this wasted space:

A tree would really help visualising and organising my notes.

Thanks!
