I am working with a remote team and we all have different computer set ups.. But we need a consistent file path for certain files.. to maintain links.. Is there a way to install the dropbox folder so that we all share an identical file path.. even if we install the folder on different drives.. For example if I install the dropbox dolder on the C: drive, and my coworker installes the dropbox folder on the 😧 drive.. we would not have consistent paths for our files.. is there a way that we could over ride those path names, so we can share files via a path name like.. Z:/dropbox/etc....
Hey @chrisleathers; thanks for using Dropbox and posting on our Community!
Can you please clarify if you're all part of the same Dropbox for Business teams account or if you're all working on personal accounts and shared folders?
Also, what types of files are you referring to and on what programs are you going to be using those paths?
Any additional information is more than welcome, Chris.
We are using 3D programs such as blender and maya.. The paths to find texture files and cache files needs to remain constant.. all the way back to the drive letter ideally.. We would all be on the same team account.. Right now only a few of us use drop box, and only for personal work.. We would want to still have our personal accounts and keep those separate.. Does that help..
Thanks.. I am not worried about people changing names.. becauyse tahts human error butId love to find a way to set it up right, technically.. I found this.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJcw76EMBeY&feature=youtu.be
Would be great if drop box had an official way to do this consistently across mac and windows.. Could be a really powerful feature for a certain set of users.. Wol dove to hear if anyone else has ideas for a solution.. 🙂 Thanks. !!
