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.
Go to Solution.
I'm afraid not, no.
Thats because the Search feature is part of your Dropbox account

Please can this feature be added
Agree. This feature needs to be added. It is an extreme hindrance to try working with my client's folders without being able to search them.
