HELP! Workaround for a folder sharing need that only seems to exist at the Business plan level

HELP! Workaround for a folder sharing need that only seems to exist at the Business plan level

New member | Level 2

I have a DB Pro account and was all set to upgrade to DB Business so I can share editing capabilities for about a dozen main folders (that contain folders I've already shared with my clients) with my 1 employee. But then I saw that I'd have to pay almost $500/year for a minimum 3 users Business plan which definitely feels like overkill for my miniscule-yet-important-to-my-business needs. Does anyone have a viable workaround for this? I know I can move those shared subfolders out of their main folders and share all with my employee separately, but that would make Dropbox a bit of a mess. I'm just flabbergasted that the only way to have this functionality is to grossly overpay. Surely there's something else I can do - any ideas would be appreciated. TIA!

Hello there @debmitch, thanks for reaching out to us. 

 

Team folders are indeed limited to Business teams. 

 

However, if it's feasible for you, you can unshare the top folder and then share the subfolders individually, instead. 

 

I understand if this isn't the ideal reply you were looking for, but let me know if you have any other questions. Cheers!
