Can you collaborate on the same document with other users?

Explorer | Level 3

Does anyone know if Dropbox allows Collaborative document sharing?

 

Can one place a password on a particular folder when the folder is shared with others?

Hi @orsadoc; welcome to the Community and thanks for posting your first question. 

 

As sharing is one of our core features you'll of course be able to use it to collaborate on docs you shared with others. 

 

As per password protecting a folder, I'm afraid this won't be possible at the moment, but feel free to create an idea in the relevant section of our Community so other users can upvote it and contribute with their own suggestions.

 

That being said, we have a feature called File locking (offered to Dropbox Business and Professional users) that prevents a file from being edited to allow teams and collaborators to coordinate and avoid conflicted copies

 

I hope this information helps and please let me know if you have any follow up questions.

Regarding the choir links, recordings, bulletins, etc.,  yes but, I believe "collaboration" involves working in tandem with the issues in the music to share- other than that I do not understand what your collaboration includes.

Hmmmmm, i think this is possible- dunno, if I can extricate from the muddles I've just been through. Gut I can take a risk, sometimes....
