How to transform a Folder into a Team Folder

How to transform a Folder into a Team Folder

kdominguez
New member | Level 2

- I have a folder "X" (not shared folder or team folder) that only I can access. 

- I can't add anyone to this folder - "This folder can only be shared as a link because it contains a shared folder"

- There are shared folders inside "X", each shared folder, shared with different people. People from subfolder X.1 shouldn't be able to see subfolder X.2 for example. 

 

My question is: can I transform the current folder X into a team folder? Because the team folder will give me the ability to share the main folder with the team members and still have shared folders inside it. 

I have multiple spreadsheets linked to each other in this folder, and I'm afraid creating a new folder and moving the sheets along would cause some problems with the formulas

Thank you

Hey @kdominguez, thanks for using Dropbox and posting on our Community!

I'm afraid that you won't be able to turn this folder into a team folder with your current setup. 

You'll need to create a new team folder, copy or move the original folder's content, and then share it as needed. 

I would assume that your formulas could break in this case, so you may need to recreate them. 

I wish I had a better answer.
