I want to share a Team Folder with a person out of my team. What can I do?

New member | Level 2

I am trying to share a team folder with a user who is not on our dropbox business account, they have their own account but are a consultant to us. I want to add them to a group to allow for them to have access to entire team folder rather than sharing each folder or having the current folder structure be changed to have another folder level. With that being said how can I:

 

1. Add an outside email address to a group?

2. If that is not possible is there a way to add an outside user to a team folder at the top level?

 

I have already checked the content sharing and I do have it set to allow for sharing files and folders externally.

 

Thanks for your help.

Hey phusion36, welcome to Dropbox Community!
 
At the moment, none of the requests are possible. Take a look at the article here for more details on how to manage Groups. 
 
What I would suggest is to create a new team folder, move the existing team folder inside as a sub-folder and share it as a sub-folder. 
 
Let me know if this helps!
