Does sharing count towards a Business user limit?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I'm looking to get a DfB account for, say, 5 team users. Occasionally I'll need to share some folders out to third-parties such as clients or contractors who are not part of the team.

Will these users count towards my overall seat limit of 5 - Or will they just need a personal/pro account? This is the case for other solutions, such as Box, but I can't find anywhere in the blurb whether this applies to Dropbox.

I know I can send a link to any file to any user, but it's the folder sync functionality I'm after.

Hi Lee!

Dropbox for Business teams can also share folders with external Dropbox users without having to add them to their teams.

Hope this information helps!

Thanks,

Dom

Thanks Dom.

I think that answer my question - If not adding to a team means a seat isn't used up, then great. I think I'll have a trial and play and check it out.

Does it count toward business user license if I add personal dropbox or if my other business user add their own personal dropbox?

Hi Dang,

connecting a private Dropbox account to your Dropbox Business account does not count as a license. Your private account will remain a separate entity outside of your team. Connecting a personal and a work account has the advantage of not having to log in and out to switch between the two of them.

Thanks!

Dom
