Upload to shared folder

Upload to shared folder

Hello!

 

A colleague has sent me a link to a dropbox folder, her permissions are set so I can edit. I can access the folder and I have added it to my personal dropbox. What I'd like to do is upload photos to the folder which I have done in my dropbox but I appear to need to reshare the folder, which doesn't feel right, I just want it to update the existing folder - what (inevitably simple) things am I missing..

Hey @MrGAkehurst, welcome to our Community!

The thing is that a shared link gives you view and download access, that's why you were able to save the folder to your Dropbox, but your updates didn't sync to the original folder. 

Can you have your colleague share the folder via an email invitation, by following the steps in this article?

Let me know how that goes!
