Creative emoji for creative collaboration

Emojis aren’t just for social media – they add a helpful dose of fun to work and team projects

Visually communicate project status

Keeping everyone on the same page can be a dull and difficult task. Using emoji or smileys helps liven up the process and provides clear, visual communication to all collaborators.

Celebrate self-expression and encourage teamwork with creative emoji reactions in Dropbox Paper – a single space for creating content and collaborating with teammates. Simply  open the emoji keyboard and add a  triangular flag or  cross mark to show project work that hasn’t been done yet. Or drop in a  white heavy check mark or a thumbs up next to every task that's been completed. You and your collaborators can see whether a project is on track, with just a quick glance.

visual document communication

Easily find your Paper doc

Trying to find exactly what you need when you have multiple browser tabs open can be a distracting waste of time. When you drop an emoji or smiley into the title of a Paper document, it will show up on that document’s tab. Use unique and creative emojis from the emoji keyboard to easily differentiate and move among several tabs.

Bring playful energy to teamwork

With Paper, it’s easy to inject a sense of fun and friendly communication into team collaboration. You can add emojis and smiley faces anywhere in your document or drop them into a comment to leave feedback or discuss what’s new.

Sometimes you know what you want to communicate, but don’t know the right emoji reaction to use. Paper can help. For example, if you’re in a festive mood, simply type “:party” and see what new emoji comes up! Adding emoji characters to a Paper doc makes collaborating and sharing feedback more creative and conversational for everyone. party popper 

friendly and fun team communication

Using emojis or smileys in Dropbox Paper is simple and fun. Emoji characters are built in to Dropbox Paper, so you don’t have to add or download another app or extension. To add emojis to your Paper doc, use an emoji keyboard shortcut by typing “:” (colon key) and search for an emoji reaction that captures what you’d like to convey.

Dropbox helps make work fun while keeping you and your team productive with friendly communication and hassle-free, creative collaboration. By organising everything you need to stay productive in one workspace, you can work efficiently – while also adding fun when you can.
