Hi there!

 

What are the main differences/privileges between regular and admin members at my Dropbox Business Account?

 

Thank you very much!

Thanks for clarifying RodrigoVenancio
 
Other than Mark’s (Super Useful 🔮) tips, there has also been a previous discussion here, which should make things a bit more clear to you on the new responsibility you’ve undertaken (& congratulations by the way, that’s some great news!). 
 
Once you get to review it, you may have to check back on your plan, in order to determine exactly which types of Activity you can trigger (note: there’s a slight difference for users on the Standard vs the Advanced plan). 
 
Hopefully this sheds a bit more light, though I’m always here if you have further questions. Thanks again!

Have you seen this at all Rodrigo?

https://www.dropbox.com/help/business//change-admin-rights#levels

'Regular' users are just that - users with no admin access.

Hey RodrigoVenancio, simply put, your admin has advanced access (to all linked accounts) & permissions through a series of features found on his/ her admin console, which may differ according to your team’s plan. 
 
Whenever you get a chance, you may have a look at the resources me & Mark have linked here & see if that addresses your questions. Let us know if you’d like us to explain in more detail. Thanks!

Thanks for the reply Mark! I actually had a hard time finding materials as this one on the site before coming to the forum.

 

May I ask you one more thing?

 

I was quite interested in the feature below.

  • Generate per-user activity logs

What exactly can a team admin see on these logs? Is there a webpage with an example of one of these?

 

Just to clarify the lack of knowlege hahaha I'm not an admin user in my team, but I was just given the responsability to manage all knowledge our company has on Dropbox, so that's why I'm try to map all the possible features I have on my disposal.

Do you know if I can see which files my team has accessed and downloaded per user for example?
