Hello @Moniz, I hope you're well today!

 

As you mentioned, it's currently only possible to share a folder within another shared folder when you're part of a Dropbox Business team. Otherwise, you'd need to share a link to the folder within the parent shared folder.

 

If you'd like to look into an option available for use within educational facilities, I'd suggest to have a look here.

 

I hope this helps, let me know if I can help with any other questions!

Hi, @Daphne!

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

Sharing a link to the folder within the parent shared folder, can´t solve my needs, because i can´t set permissons to the link (for instance: password).

 

I apreciate the suggest (Dropbox Education) and i wondering if there is any possibility to join as individual (as teacher), instance as a organization (school/campus).

 

Best regards,

Moniz

Thanks for getting back to me @Moniz!

 

At the moment, the Dropbox Education plan is similar to a Business one as it's not designed for just a single user I'm afraid.

 

Perhaps in that case, what I could suggest as you're a single user would be Dropbox Professional.

 

The reason that I suggest this is that you'll be able to apply shared link controls, such as requiring a password to be able to access the links.

 

Let me know if you have any other requirements that we could look into!

Hi, @Daphne!

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Iam a really defender that Education is not Business and the professional plan (19,99€/month*) its so expensive.

Perhaps you could share this concern with others (Administration, Developers...).

 

Once again, thank you so much for your support and keep going safe.
