How can I share files with my business partners?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I would like to know if it is possible as a Dropbox business user that at least two other people can acess the files I have uploaded to my dropbox as the main account holder. In other words, can my two business partners access my dropbox account to download files as needed from their independant machines.

Hey there @Allrounder,

I would recommend that you share the content your partners may need to access and download rather than sharing your account itself as this would be against our Terms of Service.

If you're currently using a Dropbox Business subscription then you can share your content with any of the following options. Firstly, your partners have Dropbox accounts on your team, you can move the content they need to access to a team folder and allow them access to the folder (either edit or view).

If your partners aren't part of your team (or you're not using a Business subscription), but each of you have seperate Dropbox accounts, then you can simply share the folder or files with their email addresses. If they have the desktop app installed, then the content will sync to that computer or they can download it from the website directly.

Finally, if only you have a Dropbox account and your partners don't, then you can share with a shared link instead. Sending them a shared link will allow them to view and download the content without having a Dropbox account.

I hope this info helps - Thanks!
