See what folders a user belongs to

Helpful | Level 6

As an admin, I want to be able to easily see what folders a specific user belongs to. I'd love to be a be able to go to the "Members" page, click on a user, and then see a list of all the folders they have access to. If I need to partially reduce a specific users folder access, I would currently have to click "Share" next to each folder and look through who the members were. And even then, if they belong to a folder I don't, I won't know they are on it.

I'd also like to be able to change their permission and uninvite them to those folders from that same view. So, once I've opened the "Members" page, clicked on the user, and am looking at the folders they belong to, I'd want to be able to make edits from there.

I'd like to have an answer on this matter as well.

Except that on top of that, I would like to be able to see to which groups a user belong to.

So I would go on the "members" tab and click on a member name to see to which groups he belongs.

Oh, and in this same vein, I'd like to be able to easily see every folder that is being shared with someone outside my organization and then be able to bulk select those folders and users and unshare them.

I share my various folders and files with different people. I want to remove one person ("X") from all the folders and files that are shared with X.

Is there any menu I can go to to simply "Unshare all folders and files with X"? Or is my only option to go through every folder and file to check who it's shared with and remove X if it's shared with X?

Thanks!

You need to do it on a per folder basis I'm afraid. There isnt a way to remove one person from everything in one go.

Oh man, ok that's gonna be a lot of work. Hopefully Dropbox can build this feature in down the line.

Many thanks for your help on this, much appreciated!

Thanks for your suggestion @dharma - great idea. As such, I'm passing this along to the dev team for consideration - it would be great to have an option to remove a person from all of your shared folders in bulk.

Thank you for your feedback and have a lovely day ahead!

Is this also true for Dropbox Enterprise?

Yes, indeed @MrRogers83

If the person you'd like to remove from your shares is a part of your Team though, you'd be able to delete them from the team. 

I hope this makes sense and let me know if you have any further questions please. Thanks.

I need this information, as well.  Have you fixed things yet, so we can do this?  It's necessary in a work environment when someone leaves for another job.  I'll be spending hours deleting this one person from all our folders.

Please, dropbox, develop this feature that is truly a necessity.

Thanks for your input on this one @BrieMe - I have already reported this back to the team. 

If there's anything else I can do for you in the meantime, please let me know. 

Thanks and happy Monday!
