Synchronizing and Sharing

I have a folder which is synchronized with a 3rd party app, which I also want to share with my work team.  When I try to share the folder I am stopped with a prompt that says:

"This folder can only be shared as a link because it contains a shared folder."

Not everyone on my team can access the folder through the 3rd party app and I'd like to share the folder so they can access via "view only" with the dropbox app via their own dropbox accounts.

Is this possible?  Alternatively, I have created a duplicate of this folder that I can share.  Is there a way to sync these two folders?

Thanks!

Hi @CuriouserAndCuriouser; welcome to our Community!

 

I'm not exactly sure what's troubling you here; could you provide some additional information about your setup and what you'd like to achieve so that we can advise further? 

 

Thanks!
