How to use Dropbox Paper with two Dropbox accounts

If you’re a member of a Dropbox Business team, you can have separate work and personal accounts. You can use Paper with both of these accounts.

How to switch accounts in Paper

If your Dropbox work and personal accounts are paired, you have the option to switch between those accounts in Paper. To do so:

  1. Sign in to paper.dropbox.com. If you're currently in a doc, click the < (Back to home).
  2. Click [Yourname] Dropbox in the bottom left corner.
  3. Select the account you want to use. 
    • If you don’t have a personal Dropbox account paired, you can click Add personal Dropbox.

How to share docs between accounts

If you're signed in to your work account when you create a Paper doc, you can share that doc with your personal account. To do so, share a doc by sending an invite to the email address on your personal account. 

If you don’t have a personal Dropbox, sharing a doc by sending an invite to your personal email address prompts you to create one.

You can also transfer ownership of a doc to a member of the same team, but not between work and personal accounts.
