App permissions and management for teams?

App permissions and management for teams?

We're developing an app which has Dropbox integration, and were wondering if it is possible to create a Dropbox app and grant other members of our team access to manage it?

Two of us have opened https://www.dropbox.com/developers/apps and created apps, chosen the business account (as opposed to our personal dropbox account) as the owner of the app:

However neither of us can see apps created by the other, and find no way to share it among users of our business organization.

I've looked around the various consoles and searched for documentation on this, but I have come up short.  Is the solution to create a company-owned Dropbox account which is shared between the developers who need access to the same app?

That's correct, unfortunately there currently isn't a way to share access to the app's settings page with other users, or have an app owned by the team itself, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though. 

That being the case, creating an account explicitly for the sake of owning and managing the app(s) is a workaround that some people use. Apologies I don't have better news for you!
