I am a member of folder that is shared with several others. I changed the name of the folder and on my Mac it shows as the new folder name. All other members of the folder still see the old name of the folder. They are seeing the updated content of the folder. How can I fix it so all members see the same folder name?

This answer basically yields Dropbox to be of no use to organizations with more than 10 people.
We recently tried to change names of several Team Folders. The owner of these folders made the change only to discover at the next day's All Hands meeting with 60 employees that No One is seeing the change.
Can anyone give a step by step of what needs to happen so that when the Owner of a Team Folder changes the name or does ANYTHING else inside that folder, the company sees the changes when they are synced?
The only solution I've come up with is to Unshare everyone from the folder.
1) From the dropbox website -> Share -> Gear wheel -> Unshare folder.
(I did not check the box "Let removed members keep a copy of this shared folder" so users don't have multiple copies of the folder with different names)
2) Then change the name of the folder. Wait for it to update. I noticed that there will sometimes be two folders with the same name on the screen.
3) Once the folder has updated, reshare the folder with your team.
That has to be the dumbest thing I've ever heard! How the hell am I supposed to coordinate things with my remote team if file names aren't updated?! Who ever proposed this idea at dropbox needs to get fired. The whole point is to have a unified drive with employess all over the USA no matter what computer they are on. Leaving google drive for dropbox has been a mistake!
