Designate multiple "owners" or "admins" of a shared folder

Designate multiple "owners" or "admins" of a shared folder

Explorer | Level 3

We would like the ability to designate multiple users as "admins" of a shared folder so more than one person is able to unshare and delete the folder when necessary.  This could work by having multiple "owners" and/or having a Dropbox group designated as the owner.

Why we need this:

We use Dropbox for project work that is highly sensitive.  Only team members working on the project have access to the shared folder on a "need to know" basis.  We have multiple company "admins" who need admin control over these shared project resources so sensitive data can be handled in compliance with specific project needs.

This idea is going to need a bit more support.

we've been asking for the same! can't rely on just a single owner.

We have a non-profit that uses Dropbox as a central file system for all of our volunteers to access.  We have a rolling team of board of directors that needs to grant/revoke access to volunteers.  Ideally being able to have those board of director members be multiple owners of the folders would help us manage this process.  As it is now, only one board of director member can admin permissions which puts too much burden on that one volunteer board member.  This change would be a huge help for us.
