Hide folders for users without permission

Hide folders for users without permission

When I don't share a folder with a certain user, I do not want them to see the folder.

 

Right now users that do not have permissions to certain folders can still see the names of those folders (greyed out, with a "no access" sign).

 

Some projects we do are under NDA (even the name), and right now everyone can see any root folder. Sure, there are detours like creating an "NDA" folder, and put all those projects under that, but this puts an extra level on our folderstructure which we don't like.

This idea is going to need a bit more support.

I guess this is only relevant in very specific cases. But for those who actually want to hide folders for users without access, please speak up 😀

It would be great if users who do not have access to the folders are not able to see that there are folders that they have restricted access to. There are folders where only the top management should know, and not all the employees or third party users should know about the existence of such folders/files. As discussed in this forum, many do feel that confidentiality is important especially in a business. Solved: Hide folders from users who don't have permission - Dropbox Community (dropboxforum.com)

I find it confusing for our team members and don't like the way it's set up.

Yes please. I would prefer this function as well. Make it an option in preferences so everybody can make there own choices.

Also in the mobile app hide the folders, or give the option to.
