Dropbox Paper, a collaboration tool from the cloud storage provider, has just been updated with the ability for users to create their own templates.
The highly requested feature allows users to turn a new or existing document into a shareable template.
In a template, users can also add placeholder text to help people better understand what needs to be filled in.
Dropbox, in a blog post, offers three way you can use templates:
• Start docs quickly. Kick off projects without having to set up and format docs from scratch. You can even create new docs from templates on the go with the Paper mobile app.
• Standardize forms. Make sure teams have all the info they need from the get-go by creating templates for commonly used docs like briefs and project timelines.
• Streamline processes. Save everyone time by building a library of shared templates that anyone can use to start new docs or create their own customized templates.
The Dropbox Paper app is designed for the iPhone and all iPad models. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
