Simplify project management with your team

Dropbox Paper has a better way for you to collaborate on documents with your team. Just create a timeline template for whatever documents need a project timeline—such as creative briefs, launch plans, and social media calendars.

Share the template with your team, add placeholder text to help them understand what they need to fill in, and give them edit access. And any adjustments you make are automatically saved in real time.
