Dropbox has updated its collaboration tool Paper with new features. This makes it possible to place multiple elements in the service and get live previews.

From now on it is also possible to link to a Dropbox folder within Paper, after which it is possible to view the files in the folder. As soon as the files in the folder change, the preview is also automatically adjusted. That’s what a spokesman says to TechCrunch.

Graphs

Also support has been added for Airtables, a kind of speadsheet. This makes it possible to place an embed code for an Airtable in Paper. Next you can see a preview of the table.

Finally, LucidCharts is supported. Users can paste the link into Paper and then immediately see a live preview. If the original graph changes, this is immediately visible in the preview.

Paper

Paper, which has been publicly available since 2017, is a workspace for teams to collaborate in. Users can collaborate, assign owners to tasks, add deadlines, and enrich content with videos, photos, and sound from YouTube, SoundCloud, Pinterest, and more.

Like other collaborative services, Paper wants to be a central place for employees to do their work. It is therefore possible not only to edit files, but there is also a search function, a presentation mode, a Google Calendar integration and special options to personalize the service.

The service also allows users to easily share photos and other multimedia files. In addition, it is possible to zoom in on certain matters and to highlight certain details. It is also possible to add extensive notes. This makes it easier for other employees to understand what to do with the files.
