Sharing a folder outside our team

Sharing a folder outside our team

Hello,

we are a team of 3-4 people, and would like to maybe switch to dropbox on a business team kind of account. 

Is there a way to have this kind of setup:

Folder "Our Company" 

> Subfolder 1 shared with team mates 1 and 2

> Subfolder 2 shared with team mates 2 and 3

> Subfolder 3 shared with team mates 1, 2 and 3 + with another DB acount (our technical consultant for instance who already has his own business account)

 

Thanks !

(There's already a bunch of conversation about this, but they are all quite old so maybe it changed ?)

 

All best to all and thanks,

Michaël

Hey @Michael Monney, thanks for posting to our Community!

 

With Dropbox Business you can definitely set up your sharing the way you want.

 

You can use Groups, to share subfolders with different groups of team members and you can set things up, to share folders outside the team too.

 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hey @Hannah ! 

 

Thanks for that. It works also to make a group consisting of people in our "team" + people belonging to another business "team" ?

 

All best,

No worries, Michael!

 

You can currently only include members of your team in the groups.

 

But you can share the same folders with external users individually.
