Business Teams/Groups is this possible?

Sensator
Explorer | Level 4

I'm trying to wrap my head around the documentation but it is quite confusing, so I would appreciate if someone who is stuck in to the API already and knows its limitations could answer.

Q: Is it possible to be able to add a member to a Group; then in that member's Dropbox accept the shares, make a new folder, and move the newly accepted shares into that newly created folder?

The python SDK is really not very clear, perhaps I should switch to Java or something.

Thanks.

It sounds like everything you're looking for is possible. One note though: if by "group" you do mean a Business team group, you don't need to explicitly accept that group in the account after it's added. You may be thinking of shared folders, which you do need to explicitly add.

So, to be specific:

Be sure to review the "Member file access" documentation for information on how to make user-level calls if you're using a Business app:

The following guides may also be helpful:

By the way, the SDKs are all built from the same spec, so they don't offer substantially different functionality.
