Sending Sharing Links

Sending Sharing Links

I'm trying to share a Dropbox folder with collegues but no matter how many times I send out the links only some of them receive the links.  They are not going to juck.  I think those not getting the sharing link might not have the Dropbox app loaded.  Could this be the problem?

Hey @mattvinyl, thanks for posting to the Dropbox Community today!

 

You can send 'can edit' links to folders as well. See more info and steps on how to create them here.

 

I hope this helps!

No, that wouldn't be the problem. The app has nothing to do with receiving links. The links should appear in their email, so verify that you have the correct email addresses. You could also just copy the link and send it yourself using your own email, instead of sending it through the Dropbox system.

Thanks.  If I send the link myself can they edit or is it just for them to view files?
