Problem sharing folder with outside consultant

Problem sharing folder with outside consultant

Tracey-CHSW
New member | Level 2

I have a business dropbox account.  I am a team admin.  I created "owner" a folder and shared it with 2 fellow employees.  When I went to share the folder with a consultant outside of my company - that does have a dropbox account - I was not allowed to share the folder.  I checked the settings and the folder membership was set to ANYONE.  I was not able to send a link to the consultant either.  I "unshared" the folder thinking maybe I needed to share with everyone at the same time.  I am still not allowed to share with the outside consultant. 

 

Any suggestions?

Do you have external sharing set to On within your team's settings?
