  • Integrate & embed multiple media types, for example, youtube links, Spotify, dropbox content or Vimeo & many others.
  • For collaboration, the pointers with names showing who is working on the doc amongst your team or names written against the content created by different team members are super useful.
  • It's simply easy to use with quick access to available tools & page continuity makes it a lightweight and useful tool.
  • Its presentation capabilities can definitely be improved, including how page-by-page presentation is to be done & how aspect ratios are maintained for different resolutions.
  • More flexibility in text editing would be a great addition to the text editing functionality, for example, additional fonts would be a nice thing to have.
  • Introducing additional to-do list software capabilities or task management functionality would enhance the software greatly as well.

  • It allows are team to work together on one project, or documents or plans, all at the same time and keeps everyone on the same page.
  • It allows us to make a schedule, or To Do list and keep time management at the highest priority. Everyone can work together as a group to accomplish tasks, but also know when something has been completed. There is no double doing tasks and wasting time.
  • In our Design and Construction Industry it is important that we be able to look at plans, drawings, specs and schedules all at once. Dropbox Paper allows you to add all types of medias to the documents and upload it for all to see and work on. It's amazing when others can view a page of your CAD plans without having to give everyone CAD access.
  • It also allows are team to in a sense "put our heads together" and brainstorm to create an idea so that each person can build off the other in real time.
  • I feel like the feature of creating your own template could be easier to navigate and use. Sometimes I think it isn't completely clear on what your final outcome will be.
  • There might need to be a better " learning app" when teaching users how to bring all their work and content together to work best for them on their desktop. Some co-workers seemed to have a harder time, but some were also trying to bring together different programs that others don't use.
  • When you create checklist for job items, you have to assign it to someone in particular or it won't show up on the teams side panel. It would be nice to have "general" job tasks where anyone can take it and handle it and then check it off when it's complete.

  • With Dropbox Paper, I can insert images and videos into your document, to make the document more visual, which is helpful for creating newsletters and simple flyers.
  • Once you create a document, you can save it as a template to be reused as a starting point for creating new documents.
  • Dropbox Paper has some basic formatting features like bolding text, adding links, and creating H1 and H2 headings.
  • You can insert tables into your Dropbox Paper document
  • Dropbox Paper also has an unusual but helpful feature, and that is the time line feature.
  • Dropbox Paper has very basic formatting features. However, it would be helpful, if I could change the text color and have more options for changing text size.
  • It would be helpful if I could upload a video from my computer. Currently you can only embed a video from youtube, Google Drive, and other third party applications.
  • I wish Dropbox Paper came with some preset templates to get you started with creating documents. It would be great if there was a meeting note template and a newsletter template
