Can I share a folder to a Google contact group?

My dropbox account is connected to my Google account. When I go to share a folder individual contacts will auto-populate the 'To:' field but I cannot fill the field with a Group name or Label.

If you're trying to share with a group of people using a single address, you can't. You can only share with individuals. You'll need to type each name or email separately, or you can copy and paste a comma-separated list of email addresses.

Hi @DrGiles, thanks for joining the Community!

@Rich is correct in that individual users need to be added to a shared folder.

The exception to this if you’re in a Dropbox Business team, and you’ve created a Dropbox group of certain members, then you can invite that group to the shared folder.

Hope this helps to clarify matters!
