Overall Satisfaction with Dropbox Paper

Dropbox Paper allows me to quickly create and share formatted documents without having to download a program to my computer. I can also use Dropbox paper to collaborate with others. This is especially helpful when building long internal newsletters, where one or more departments are contributing to the document.
  • 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
  • Easy collaboration
  • Simple and easy to use
  • Simple formatting features
  • Ability to insert media - images and videos into the Dropbox Paper document.
  • Limited formatting features, yields less visually dynamic documents.
  • Difficult to create organizations branded documents, since you can't change font family or color.
  • Lack of preset templates, makes it take longer to create documents.
Dropbox Paper is a good choice for creating very simply formatted documents. Google Docs and Microsoft Word allow you to create documents with a wealth of features and formatting options. Goole Docs is great for collaborating and document sharing with others. Microsoft has the most robust features for document creation.

Dropbox Paper is suited for creating very simple documents, where you are collaborating with other users. It is particularly useful in a work environment that primarily uses Dropbox as a storage and file management solution. If you need to create documents where you need more enhanced formatting features, you would need to use Google Docs, or Microsoft Word.
