Im not sure if dropbox is capable of what i want it to do in our businesss but i thought id ask fellow business to see if they have found a way.
Problem: editing a file or folder is not updating the original file in the admin folder.
What we are doing: as an admin we want to change a file that’s originally in my folder. Once the folder or document is shared to a team folder, the team member can view and make changes which only occur in that team folder.
What’s not happening: once the team member has altered the document in his team folder it is not updating the original file location on the admins folder, only in the team folder.
Does dropbox system actually do this?
Or once the folder is edit changed or updated in the team folder, those changes only stay in the team folder? Or do they update the original folder?
So from what I understand, you have 2 copies of a file; one in the“admin” folder and one in the“team” folder, is that correct?
Currently this isn’t a function within Dropbox to have an edited file then update another version of the file elsewhere in the account. There is no way to “link” the files so that the system can see the changes in one place and reflect this in another, the files are essentially just separate copies.
Hope this clarifies the matter, let me know if you have any other questions - Thanks!
