Can people that have a shared link, search in my folder?

New member | Level 2

Hi,

Is there a way to allow a shared folder have the search capability?  It looks like the search is only available when I'm logged into Dropbox.

I want to give a share link to people, who don't have dropbox accounts, and let them do a search to find files of their preference in that shared folder.

Thanks

 Joey

I'm afraid not, no. 

Thats because the Search feature is part of your Dropbox account
