Overall Satisfaction with Dropbox Paper

We started using DropBox Paper in our company during Covid when everyone starting working from home. Getting together to collaborate via zoom or teams was not always a possibility, so we had to find a way to work together even while not "together". It was a great and effective way of getting our teams connected and gave us the ability to work on projects together without us all actually having to be together at the office. Having a software that allowed us to work in real time with each other and pick up whenever and wherever we needed to was a lifesaver.
  • 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.
  • The ability to present multiple and different kinds of medias/things within our group screen. A visual aid is almost a must in our line of work.
  • The editing features and the tools that are quickly ready for you to use are a HUGE plus! You don't have to constantly go back to a tool bar at the top to make edits, additions, etc.
  • Dropbox Paper also has an app so that we can log in and make changes or updates to info while on the go, or just not at our desktop computer.
  • Dropbox Paper has allowed all of our employees to be much more productive and on track even when we can't be in the office, which from a management standpoint is a huge positive impact. They know that productivity isn't slowing or lacking when everyone isn't actually sitting in the office under their watchful eye.
  • It has had a huge impact on our turn around time and speed of getting more work and projects completed. The more work you can effectively get done in a time period means more money for the bottom line.
  • It has made the majority of our team members more accountable and reliable when they know everyone is working together on something and each person has their own checklist of items to complete. It is especially helpful that everyone can see the same checklist, so everyone knows what each other is accomplishing.
We briefly tried Prezi, but in all honesty DropBox Paper won out for us simply because it lets you use and integrate so many different media types all together into one project. I know that there are a few features that others really liked about Prezi but for the group as a whole we need the ability to use mixed medias.

DropBox Paper is perfect for groups or teams that are needing to create and collaborate together but can't all be together in the same office or all on the same call or zoom meeting. It allows everyone to create together in real time and then also work on a project together and check off items as they are completed. It makes it super helpful when you can transfer other docs into your team "file" so that everyone has a visual of what is begin discussed or has that doc to use for their work in the future at their own time and pace.
