Allow me to remove Myself from a shared folder, as a Member?? Also, email visibility to the creator?

Helpful | Level 6

I have search quite a bit. I found nothing. I believe this feature hasn't been implemented since March when I got stuck with a stupid dropbox file,which I click every once in a while.

 

Please allow members to leave shared documents. This is absurd. Also, is the creator gettting my email adress. I pressume yes. If so, this is unacceptable.

 

Fix this already. It is the one thing I hate about paper.

 

Good Evening and a good Week to all. Seriously fix this quickly!!!

Hi

I'm not sure what you mean - 'leave a file'? Shares are only a share inside of a folder. It isnt possible to share a file with edit rights.

So, if you just have a file you should be able to delete it on its own (and thats always been the case).

In terms of Paper the owner of the Document can remove you it seems via https://www.dropbox.com/help/paper/share-doc

They are getting your email yes - as with all collaboration on Dropbox emails are shared.

I entered a paper that was shared in an article. Since then I asked the owner repeateadly to remove me from the document(That's what I meant file). I am jsut a member of the document, along with 100+ more people that also want to be removed, for months now.

 

Just for reference, the owner of the document shouldn't get our emails. He should only get them if I have access to edit. Not just when I view a document.

 

This is absurd. That would give them access to a pretty large email list, without our consent. Paper rolesr/permissions should change that setting in the next release.
