Possible to STOP users from creating new folders?

Possible to STOP users from creating new folders?

New member | Level 2

Hi there,

 

We have a taxonomy / folder structure that we use to manage our company documents and we have created this in DropBox as a series of root folders underneath the admin DropBox which are then shared as appropriate to members of the team.

 

Ideally we do not want members of the team to modify the folder structure or add new private folders to their own DropBox, we want all documents to be saved to the existing folder structure as it has been designed.

 

Is there any way to restrict our team members from creating new folders in their DropBox? We are happy for them to create additional sub folders inside the main folders but if the option is just "all or nothing" then we would prefer them not to be able to create folders at all.

 

Cheers,

 

Olly

Hi @Esland A.

 

Just want to let you know I got this from @Mark and passed to our teams. As mentioned, this type of restriction is currently not supported.

 

Thanks for asking!

Hi Esland,

I'm afraid it is not possible to restrict Dropbox in such a way. I'll pass the feedback on though.
