I am the admin of our business account and want to achieve the following folder/permissions structure. Unfortunately I can't figure out how to do this with Dropbox. (All users need to be able to edit. )
Top Level Folder (editable by team member 1, team member 2, external user 1, external user 2)
Simply put: a couple of people on my team and a few externals need access to a top level folder.... and a couple of other external users need access to only a sub-folder.
What is the best way to achieve these folder/permissions between my team members and external users??
Solved! Go to Solution.
Ok so something like this?.....
Hmmmm ok, so like this?.....
I want to clarify because I tried that but it seems I can only add Groups to a team folder... not external users manually.
Ok, i'm i bit confused... what did you mean by "That would work perfectly yes! You can even add the external users to the top level folder also if needed, you will just need to add them manually instead of with the group, as you can only add team members to a group."
Can you please clarify what you meant there? It sounds like you were saying to add the external users to the Team Folder manually, instead of with the group... which is not possible. Was that your mistake? Or my misunderstanding?
- Team Folder (give acces to Group containing team members)
- Sub-folder 1 (also give access to exteranl users 1 & 2)
- Sub-folder 1.1
- Sub-folder 1.2
- Sub-folder 1.3 (also give access to external users 3 & 4)
- Sub-folder 1.4
- Sub-folder 1.5
Thanks for clearing that up! The logical next question is: how do i use this 'new' Team Folder? Doing it the sub-folder within a sub-folder way in order to have the ability to share with externals seems like a workaround. The 'new' Team Folder might be less confusing for the end users.
