Is it possible to rename the Dropbox Business root folder?

Level 2

I have linked my Personal and Business accounts.  On my PC (see photo), I have the following root folders:

(a) Dropbox (Personal), and

(b) COMPANYNAME Dropbox

Is there a way yo rename the the second folder (b) from COMPANYNAME Dropbox to Dropbox (COMPANYNAME) - either with or without parentheses?

When I sort alphabetically, I'd liked for the two root folders to appear next to each other.

Hey there @juddza,
 
Currently it isn’t possible to change the name of the Dropbox folder on your desktop. What I could suggest as a work around (if you’re a team admin) would be to rename the Dropbox team. Nonetheless, I’ll be more than happy to pass along your feedback to our dev team for consideration!
 
Sorry I can’t be of more help here, let me know if you have any other questions though - Thanks!

Re: xIs it possible to rename the Dropbox Business root folder?

My team has the same problem.

@Daphne

If you look at this article, is clearly says that our folders are supposed to be named;

Private:
Dropbox (PERSONAL)

Business:
Dropbox (COMPANYNAME)

Then how come the Business folder is named "COMPANYNAME Dropbox" and not "Dropbox (COMPANYNAME)"?

Is this a setting? How do we fix this? 
We tried renaming the folder by renaming the Dropbox Team(Admin setting), but it still gives us "COMPANYNAME Dropbox".

We are all on Macs, and our entire team has this problem.

Hey there Jeppe!
 
So this is the expected naming of the Dropbox folder if you are using the new Dropbox Business structure. It’s a little different in the general folder layout which you can recognize and check with the details in this link here.
 
I understand that this is not ideal for you, so I will make sure to send this along to our dev team and let them know of your feedback, for renaming the folder mentioned by @juddza and the Help Center article linked by @jeppebandersen.
 
Hope this helps to clarify and apologies for any confusion - Thanks!
