how to create shareable Links with editing access

how to create shareable Links with editing access

Explorer | Level 3

Hi. If anyone can help to advise please.

How do I create a link with shareable function and also have access for people with the link to be able to upload files on it? Under setting there is only "Link for viewing". I can't find the "Link for editing"

 

Thanks in advance!

Hey there @HELP10, thanks for posting your question here. 

 

You're right, currently, a shared link allows users to preview content, but they cannot upload to it. 

 

If you want them to add items, you can send them a file request, instead. 

 

Out of curiosity, do these users have a Dropbox account? 

 

Give me a shout whenever you have the chance to check this out, cheers!

Thanks Lusil!

 

Yes, user have a Dropbox account

 

The link is supposed to be shared to 100 over people (it's a class) so anyone can access the same dropbox folder and add their assignment etc.

Thanks for getting back to us here @HELP10!

 

You could use a shared folder, and share this with each person's Dropbox account with these steps.

 

Allowing them editing access will give them permission to upload files into the folder, but they would also have the option to delete or edit the other content.

 

Perhaps, in this case, the best option would be to use a file request link, as Lusil suggested, as this will only allow them to upload into the folder.

 

Let us know if you have any questions about this!
