Automatically accept shared folders

Automatically accept shared folders

Is there a setting that i can have that will automatically add a shared folder to my dropbox ?

Right now im getting prompted with this msg whenever someone added me into the list of users for a folder.

Is there a way that the folders are automatically added to my dropbox whenever im given permission to a folder?

There isn't a setting for that. If you're a programmer though (since you posted this in the "API support" forum), you could write something to programmatically add these using /2/sharing/list_mountable_folders[/continue] and /2/sharing/mount_folder (or the respective methods in an SDK):

Could you please provide code sample of how this can be done?

@Richie4571 The documentation linked in my earlier comments includes samples for calling those endpoints using curl. Exactly what your code to call them would look like would depend on what language, platform, and SDK/library (if any) you're using. 

 

We do recommend using one of the official SDKs if possible:

 

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation

 

Those have corresponding native methods for the HTTPS endpoints. If you do end up using one of those, check out the corresponding SDK documentation for information on how to get started. 

 

If you run in to any issues writing the code to connect to the Dropbox API from your app, please let us know and share what you have so far and what's giving you trouble.
