Permission to enter word files

Permission to enter word files

New member | Level 2



I can enter files that someone else saving. It says i dont have permission to enter files. And when I go through, to acess to get permission, it still says i dont have permission. All settings from the user who saved it from the beginning is correct so it shouldnt be any problem. 


Any tips or suggestions?

Re: Permission to enter word files


Hi @Henrikfehland, thanks for posting on the Community!


Are you experiencing this for any file in your Dropbox folder, or just those in shared folders? 


Do they have this file open on their machine while you're trying to view it on your computer?


This will help me to assist further!
