Hey there (@kverweij-viak), assuming that you’re the team admin, please bear in mind that you can set your team’s default setting for newly synced content (:spider web::right arrow:) following the steps outlined here, (however individual members can change the default setting for newly added content on their desktop):
 
Spoiler
  • Admin default: the default setting chosen by the team admin.
  • Local: all new content downloads to your computer.
  • Online-only: manually download files to your computer when you need them
If you’ve invited users with existing Dropbox accounts, then I’d recommend unlinking & relinking their accounts to their desktop once, as it recreates the local database
 
Hopefully my post answers your questions however please do let me know if I have misunderstood your inquiry in any way or in case you have any follow-up queries & it'll be a pleasure to further clarify. Thanks & have a wonderful March ahead! :tulip:
