Hi @Marion Wilhelmy, thanks for posting on the Community!

 

Currently, all shared links are a one-way, read-only link, which don't allow any edits to files there.

 

However, you can create Google documents and make the shared link with edit rights.

Hope this helps!

No probs, @Marion Wilhelmy, enjoy your weekend!

 

Just so you know, you can share folders, which will allow you to edit files inside the folder with other people, but they need a Dropbox account of their own.
