Please allow pairing of more than two accounts. As a contractor, I am a member of a company's business account, a team member of another company, and have my personal account. It is frustrating to only be able to pair two of them, so that when I need to access the third, I have to completely sign out of the others and sign in fresh for the third.

Dropbox only allows for links between one Personal and one Business, but two Business Accounts. 

 

That is an issue because:

I am an admin of my work account, and I need it to work. 

My personal Dropbox need more than 3TB, but I cannot get it without an business account. 

My wife and I want to pay for the Business Account together, for our personal use, so we both can have unlimited storage.

However, that is not possible, because since I already have an business account from work, I cannot link another Business Account to my computer.

 

I need to make local files from both my work and personal accounts, so using one of them on the browser only is not an option. 

Please vote here to help me get the developer's attention!

For the independent/freelance/contractors, we work across multiple companies at any given time. I currently have 3 clients each using Dropbox, but I desperately need to switch between the accounts on my computer (the app and web versions are painful and not clean and simple as working through Finder on a Mac).

PLEASE allow multiple business accounts!

I'm having the same issue! As a contract graphic designer, I have a personal account and two separate team accounts with different businesses. It is really cumbersome trying to work when the desktop only allows one team login and one personal.

Hi @jstolder, this idea is going to need a bit more support before we share your suggestion with our team.

I'm a contract graphic designer and I can't stress the need for this enough. I have my personal account for my personal stuff (resume, portfolio, whatever), two of my contracts have invited me to be part of their Dropbox business accounts so that's 2 more, and I have my own business account where I keep the files of other, smaller clients. I should be able to join other business dropboxes and connect them to my overall identity so I can switch back and forth easily as needed. Dropbox is an amazing tool but so limited by frustrating things like this. Please, please think of those of us who freelance or contract for a living and allow this to be a useful platform. Thank you!!!

Please vote for this idea if you freelance or have a need for multiple accounts (more than two). More votes will help this gain traction 🙂

As an owner & manager of multiple businesses using Dropbox, I really need a way to access multiple Business accounts from a single computer with local syncing. I'm really hoping this feature gets added very soon! I imagine many independent business users as well as investors, advisors, etc would find it tremendously useful.

I've seen the response from DB a few times now that it causes privacy issues - but I'd expect it would work the same way it does when a folder is shared with a personal account? Maybe there could be a setting in the admin settings to enable this functionality, so if folks didn't want to offer it htey could keep it off, and the rest of us could turn it on? It seems like you should want to support those of us with more than one paid account 🙂 we're your heaviest users!

I would find this useful as I have needed this option a handful of times in the past two years.
