Overall Satisfaction with Dropbox Paper

Security, reliability and easy of access to document sharing online. Dropbox Paper offers us flexibility and control to project sharing via documents directly in the file managing Dropbox environment that allows the company to keep everything under "controlled" user access with high levels of security and also providing reliability with backup functions and ultimately it is easy to use in the user interface side as also compatible with the main Document formats. So by allowing collaborative Document editing in a reliable way, this tool is helping the business.
  • Flexibility
  • Performance
  • Integration
  • Search functions
  • Lack of a thumbnail view
  • Lack of a Project Management View (with steps)
  • Compatibility
  • Integration with Dropbox File Management
  • Security it offers
  • Biggest Impact is on the Team (Making our lives better)
  • Collaboration the right way is a huge ROI
I was not part of the decision making to acquire the Dropbox tool against any of the other options and competitors. However, I can assume that the fact that we have been using Dropbox File Management for many years and many important files are stored and shared in the tool everyday, the adding of Dropbox Paper should have been felt very natural.

Dropbox Paper is very well suited in a corporate environment where both the file management and the document editing and collaboration must be easy to use but without the risks of less secure and reliable platforms (including some that are available online and are 100% free) as companies like mine have a very restrict and specific need to control access of users and avoid data from leaking outside the limits of the specific project Team.
As for scenarios where it is less suited, I can only think of the fact that it lacks a full Project managing suit where the project team could move documents around steps and have a visual platform for project managing. While one can say it is a bit out of scope of the tool offer, having such capabilities would feel very natural...
