Multiple drives in a account

Hi, while creating app for a client, we found that they have multiple Team Root folders. How can I create multiple team root folders in dropbox. I am using Business Standard account. Is that part of Advanced Business Account.

Thanks for the additional information! Based on that description, you are referring to a team using the older non-"team space" configuration. (Please refer to the links in my earlier message for more information on that.)

In that older configuration, the team can create multiple different team folders. In the new "team space" configuration, that doesn't work the same way. (The equivalent would just be creating additional folders inside the team space itself.)

There isn't a setting or upgrade to change a Business team with the new configuration to work the way the old configuration does.

It sounds like you might be referring to a team on the older non-"team space" Dropbox Business configuration, where team folder(s) were rooted inside each member's home folder. (This isn't based on the service level of the Business plan.)

We're migrating to the team space model, and there isn't a way to easily toggle or test the older version, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though. 

You can find more information on the differences here:

Please let me know if that's not what you're referring to though!

Hi, not sure if we are on same page. 

If I query https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/team/namespaces/list

I get multiple entries which have namespace type team_folder. I didn't find any setting to create multiple team_folder in dropbox. Is this also an old feature, or I have to upgrade account for this.

 

Thanks
