Multiple Business Dropbox Accounts

Level 2

I own more than one company. Can I open multiple dropbox business accounts (yes, obviously) & can i be logged into all of these additional accounts on my iphone app all at the same time? How about on my PC in file explorer (Dropbox - Company 1, Dropbox - Company 2, Dropbox - Company 3) & having all my different companies always be syncing at the same time?

Hey there @RyanT - how are you today?

As this is not possible at the moment I wanted to say thanks for sending along your feedback Ryan. I’ll be sure to pass your comments along to the team for their future consideration and as a feature request for an option to be able to sync 3 different accounts on your devices.

As you probably know, it is possible to have two separate accounts--your personal and work Dropbox accounts--on the same computer ( and mobile devices) yet there's no such option for 3 accounts.

Note that if you need access to two (or more) different Dropbox accounts on the same computer the best option would be to create a second user account within your operating system for the second Dropbox account. However, you would need to log out of one user account and log in to the other account to switch Dropbox accounts. This may or may not be convenient for your needs.

Alternatively, you could link only one Dropbox account to your computer and access any others via the web interface only at: www.dropbox.com 

I understand this is not optimal, yet, I hope this information helps to some extent. Please let me know if you have any more questions, feedback or suggestions and I will be happy to assist Ryan. 

Thanks!

Can I have 2 dropbox business accounts on 1 computer?  Or does it have to be 1 dropbox business account and 1 dropbox personal account?

You're on the right track Rebecca - this is only possible for one individual account (be it on the Basic, Plus or Professional plan) and a Business one that's part of an account on a Dropbox for Business teams plan. 

Let me know if you have any more questions!

Re: Multiple Business Dropbox Accounts

Hi Walter,

I'm messaging on this thread to emphasize the need for mutliple Dropbox Buisness accounts per email to become a thing. I work in the film/entertainment industry and I've encountered several individuals thus far that we're struggling to add to our show (which has its own Dropbox Business account) because they are still working on another project that has its own Dropbox Business account and they're not allowed to have two accounts with one email; I've encountered this issue with 4 new users just today!

Please pass along this need. As an industry predominately built on freelance workers, we often use our personal email addresses for our work. This fix would be GAMECHANGING for us on our show, and I'm confident it would be for others as well.
