I want to share a folder but I'm having some trouble with the invitations and the permissions

New member | Level 2

I created a folder with a number of subfolders.  I need to share it with 56 people - so they can upload content to the folder.  

A subset of these people (6 people) need to be able to edit the content.

When I sent the invitations to share from Dropbox - it said there were too many and I had to try again in 24 hours...

If I create a link and share it using my email account - then I think this gives view-only access?  Does that mean that they cannot upload content if you have only view-only access?

Can I share full edit options with 56 people using my email - so i don't have to do 6 people every 24 hours..

Re: Sharing a folder

Hi there @LaraLeg, thanks for posting your question here. 

 

You're right, if you send a shared link, users will only be able to view the folder. 

 

Since all members of the shared folder will need edit access to be able to add files, you can give those 50 users view-only rights and send them a file request

 

That way, they will be able to preview the contents, but only add files.

 

As for inviting them to the shared folder, are you still having trouble with it? 

 

Let me know how it goes, cheers!
