Inviting Someone to Dropbox Folder

Inviting Someone to Dropbox Folder

New member | Level 2

I have access to a folder on Dropbox that I am not the owner of but that I do have admin privileges to. I need to invite someone to that folder, however, they have an individual account and the folder I want to invite them to is a business account. I invited them once and they lost access to their folders. How do I invite them in such a way that they don't lose access to their individual account while being able to access everything in the folder that I want them to access?

Hey @TW92, thanks for posting to our Community!

 

It sounds like the last time you invited them, you invited them to join the Dropbox Business team instead of the folder.

 

You'll need to follow the steps in this article, to share the folder with them, and as long as they have enough space in their account, they'll be able to add it to their Dropbox.

 

If they don't have enough space for the folder, you can share a 'can-view' link with them instead.

 

This will give them access to the folder, but they won't be able to edit it.

 

Let me know if you have any questions.
