I can't share a folder with my team

I can't share a folder with my team

Explorer | Level 4

Hi! My team and I have dropbox business accounts. I gave permissions to some people (not from the team), to have access to some files in a folder inside the folder we want to use as a shared problem. The problem is, dropbox does not allow me to add more people to a shared folder, when there is people with access to sub folders in the mentioned shared folder I want to work in group with. A message pop ups and says that there are already shared folders within the shared folder, but I don't see how that affects me giving permissions to more people on the main folder.

Is there any way I can solve this, it is really slowing our work down, since we all need to work over this folder.

Hi @ris, thanks for messaging today!

 

I'm sorry to hear about this. Currently, it isn't possible to share a folder which already has shared subfolders.

 

You could create a shared link to the parent folder, which will allow those new users to view and download files, but not edit them. This article contains more information on this situation.

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters!
