I want to have multiple Business accounts on my computer

New member | Level 2

Hi There,

I'm an independent contractor who works for multiple companies, which all have Dropbox Business. I already have the Business / Personal setup but I would like to have Multiple Business accounts and my Dropbox personal account on my macOS userprofile:

macOS user:
Dropbox Business account Company A
Dropbox Business accountCompany B
Dropbox Personal

Currently I have to create a second macOS user or unlink/link a business account to swithc.

That is the only solution. You cannot have multiple Business accounts syncing under a single user profile.

Hey @svh1985.

Currently, you can pair just one Business and the personal under one desktop app and user profile. Steps to pair the two: https://help.dropbox.com/accounts-billing/multiple-accounts/pair-accounts-all-devices.

Access the second Business account from the web or as you suggested, another user account. At least you know you can never upload files to the wrong Business account accidentally, since they will be under different users accounts.  

If both Business accounts are yours and you are the team admin, I also wanted to add that you can merge two Dropbox Business accounts. If that would be convenient. (?) 

Here is an article explaining the process. https://help.dropbox.com/teams-admins/admin/merging-teams

Let us know more about your workflow if you wish and we can suggest Dropbox tricks to help. Thanks!
