Accessing multiple accounts

New member | Level 2

Hi, I work with a number of different businesses.  One of my businesses uses dropbox as it's main storage/file sharing facility and it works really well on my Mac.  So much so that i've just convinced another business to do the same.  However this means I now need to access two business and one personal account on my Mac.  Is this possible?  If not it looks like i'll be cancelling one account and using a competitor.  Thanks

Hey @Barry9559, thanks for reaching out on the Dropbox Community!
 
While what you’d like to achieve isn’t entirely possible, we’ve previously had a similar discussion here; let me slight rephrase these pointers. 
 
You can link your personal & work Dropbox accounts online & sync both on your Mac, though it’s not currently possible to do so for two Business accounts. You can store the two separate Dropbox Business accounts on different user profiles on the same device however. 
 
I hope this helps to a certain extent; please let me know how you get on!

Thanks Jane.  You've answered my question.  Sadly it appears I am going to have to look elsewhere as Dropbox doesn't offer the solution I need.  I am surprised as I can't be the only one with multiple businesses and changing between user accounts isn't practical for me longer term.  Thank you
