Dropbox rolls up Paper admin controls

Dropbox has added centralised administration to its Paper collaboration tool.

Dropbox Paper, currently in beta, is intended as a shared workspace where teams can collaborate using a variety of tools including co-editing, shared folders, comments, task lists and embedded files from Dropbox, Google and YouTube.

"People are loving it," Dropbox APAC head of solution architecture Daniel Iversen told iTWire, adding that more than one million documents have already been created.

The latest update to Paper provides Dropbox Business and Enterprise customers users with a number of administrative tools.

There's now a team-only setting for controlling who can share Paper documents.

Paper events can be included in the Dropbox audit log.

Administrators can now delete or suspend users, transfer accounts, sign themselves in as a Paper user, among other changes.
