Take advantage of real-time content collaboration

Easily collaborate, edit, and share content. Paper enables team members to work on documents simultaneously to boost efficiency, keep feedback or decision-making in one place, and maintain accountability by tracking contributions.

Streamline team workflows

Dropbox is a single space for your team’s content collaboration needs. You and your team members can use our content collaboration platform to create and share all kinds of work. 

Here are just a few examples of Paper templates to kickstart your next project:

It’s easy to add images, video, and even code to team projects. Teams can centralize their work in a single location, so they spend less time managing content and more time collaborating. 

Access important files like PDFs, Google Docs, or JPEGs—and use app integrations for Slack and Zoom—without ever leaving Dropbox.

Paper’s content collaboration and document editing features let you share all types of content with project partners in just one document.

With Paper, you can speed up your workflow with our templates, easily @mention team members, quickly assign tasks, or simply add tables, animated GIFs, emoji, files, and links. 

You can even seamlessly embed rich media, including SoundCloud clips and YouTube links.

Optimize how you give, receive, and action feedback

Dropbox makes automatically gathering project feedback easier. Collaborate, share, and edit along with your colleagues in one centralized space.

Communicate with your collaborators by leaving comments on specific document sections and @mentioning team members—who will receive a notification that you’ve left feedback. 

Dropbox also lets you use annotations to comment on images and preview audio or video files—no need to download the file or the original application.

Frequently asked questions

Collaboration in the workplace is more than just teamwork—it’s an approach to project management that combines working together, innovative thinking, and equal participation to achieve a goal. 

Successful team collaboration at work is frequently supported by technology tools or collaboration software—like Dropbox Paper—that improve communication, decision-making, and workflow. The right tools and software also help to create a culture that values every person’s contribution.

Dropbox functions as a highly-effective workspace that enables communication, file sharing, and organization—so there are many exciting ways to use it as a content collaboration platform.

One of the most effective uses of Dropbox is as your team’s central hub for content, cloud storage, and document sharing. With Dropbox Paper, you can make sure every teammate is on the same page by organizing meeting notes, project plans, to-do lists (and many other templates), or links in one place.

Another way to use Dropbox as a content collaboration platform is to install the Dropbox desktop app. This way, you’ll be able to bring your files, tools, and team members together—so you can work together as a team more efficiently and effectively.

Content collaboration platforms can benefit a person or larger team because they help everyone work together toward a common goal and streamline problem-solving. 

Benefits of content collaboration tools include:

  • Efficient workflows and processes, leading to better productivity
  • A centralized information platform, enabling remote and distributed teamwork
  • Improved communication and trust, through more transparency or visibility of each person’s contributions
  • Secure file sharing, as team members are collaborating within a single tool
  • Control over your content with file permissions, version control, and tracking

Dropbox Paper is a collaboration tool for content, but we also offer Dropbox Replay for collaborating on video production and DocSend for working with clients and external partners.

Dropbox can encourage and improve collaboration by bringing files, tools, and people together in a single space. Team collaboration can be effortless when everything you need to get your best work done has intuitive organization, is easy to find, and securely shareable with teammates and external partners. Dropbox Paper offers all these features to foster collaboration on content.
