At our company, we use Paperpile to organize our papers. The current behavior of Paperpile requires that one person own each shared folder. We are concerned about continuity if the person who originally created the folder structure leaves the company. Google Drive itself used to have this same limitation, but Google added Team Drives to solve this. Items in Team Drives are owned by the organization rather than by an individual. It would be great if Paperpile had a similar capability that allowed shard folders to live beyond a single individual. Paperpile could even leverage a Team Drive to store the PDFs.
We are aware of the issue and have plans to solve that. Actually we’ve started a while ago with some fundamental changes that will make it easier to transfer accounts between users. That also includes support for Team Drives.
