Is It Possible to Link Multiple Business Accounts to Personal Account

Is It Possible to Link Multiple Business Accounts to Personal Account

New member | Level 2

Hi,

I'm a freelance consultant working with multple clients. I have two clients that have me as a member of their Dropbox Business teams. I'd like to have both Business accounts linked to my Dropbox Personal account so I have local folder access (rather than web-based) to the Businsess accounts.

Is this possible? Or is my only option to create two Personal accounts, link one Personal account to each of the Business/team accounts? Hoping that there's another solution and I wouldn't be stuck in a loop of login/logout and resyncing files over and over again.

Thanks!

Hi there @corysed, thanks for checking in with us. 

Currently, it's possible to link one work (Business) account with one personal (Basic/Plus/Professional) account. 

In general, for multiple (individual or team) accounts, you'll have to log out of one and sign in to the other. 

You can check out more info on this here

Hope this helps to some extent!

Hi, @Lusil, so what would my approach be for accessing both Business accounts locally on my desktop and laptop? (as opposed to the browser-based interface)

Do I link neither Business account to my Personal account? Do I setup two Personal accounts and link one Personal account to each Business account?

My end goal is that I want to maintain local O.S.-level (not web-brower) access to both Business accounts that I'm a member of.

Thank you for your help!

If you want to make sure that your files are syncing and up to date, you can create one more user profile on your computer.

That way, you can have one work account linked with your personal one on one profile, and have the second Business account syncing on your second user profile. 

You can also check out this thread and this one where this has previously been talked about. 

Let me know if you have any other questions, @corysed!
