I'm interested in creating a set of profiles assigned different permissions. How can I do that?

Helpful | Level 6

Hi there! 

I'd like to know, if it's possible to set up access profiles like the examples below: 

Level 1 - total access: this profile can access, read, edit, write, overwrite, download and upload any kind of content to specific Dropbox folders. 

Level 1 - partial acess: this profile can access, read, NOT edit, NOT write, NOT overwrite, NOT download and NOT upload the content to specific Dropbox folders. 

I'd like to be able to manage those 2 types of access across my team and my file foldes. Ex: The John has access level 1 for folder A and the same John has access level 2 for folder B. Whereas, Mary has access level 2 for folder A and level 1 for folder B. 

Is there anyway I can manage the settings above for my team in our Dropbox Business account? 

Thank you very much.

Sort of. But it wouldnt then sync to the users own Dropbox folders.

Total access - a standard share

Partial - use a shared link which is restricted via https://www.dropbox.com/help/files-folders/set-link-permissions

Note that it is ALWAYS possible to circumvent download restrictions this just makes it harder.
