Can 1 Dropbox account be part of 2 different business teams?

New member | Level 2

Hello,

I'm already in a work group with memebers of my company but I need to open a new work group to share information between my other co-workers...

Is it possible to have 2 work groups within the same account??

Re: 2 work groups with 1 account

Hey there @Ada_Steffy,
 
One Dropbox account can only be part of one Dropbox Business team at a time due to the ownership of files within the account. To be a part of 2 teams you will need to have a second Dropbox account.
 
It might be worth noting that the second team can still share folders with you, which will just appear in your personal space rather than a team folder. As the content in team folders is owned by the team admin, a shared folder can’t be within more than one team space. They can however be shared with other individuals outside the team.
 
Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions - Cheers!
