I've been sent a link to a Dropbox account created by a group leader for our group. It consists of a bunch of folders and everyone else in the group is supposed to upload their file to the folder. I can open this link and see/interact with all the files therein. When I do this my account logo (my initials) are visible in the top right-hand corner of the screen indicating that I'm still connected to my account. However the page only show the "Save To Dropbox" and "Download" tabs as options. There is no upload option. But I need to upload my file to the folder. It doesn't seem very logical that I should have to download the folder, add my file, then re-upload it -- that's completely inefficient. So I tried to use the "Share" tab to share my file from my own Dropbox page, but the only way I can seem to do this is to send it via individual emails... (??) I just want to be able to upload my file to the folder on the shared page that I also have access to! Can someone please tell me how I can do this. Thank you!!
Thanks for your reply Mark. I thought that might have been the issue but everyone else in the group seems to be able to upload their files without a problem. I did join the group later than everyone else. Is it possible that everyone else was sent a link to the shared folder and then the link was later shared with me but because it was "second-hand" (it wasn't emailed to me directly) it could therefore only be viewed by me as a read-only..?
I'm determined to get to the bottom of this -- it's so weird! Thanks for helping.
