organizating files for different access

organizating files for different access

New member | Level 2

I want to have two members, but one of them only able to access one file at the top level and the other everything. So I'd have one personal folder and two business folders. How do I do that?

Hey there @IAPSrocks  - sorry for the tardy response, are you still having issues with this?

I was able to find your other post here on our Community and merged it with your new one to keep all of your queries under one place.

When it comes to your concern now, your best bet would be to have an extra layer of folders and utilize (company managed preferably in this case) groups or even permissions to sharing for team members to achieve that.

If you need more account specific assistance with this or in case I'm missing something here, please let me know and I'll reach out via email to your Dropbox associated address to work on it together. 

Thanks!

How do I set access to different folders for different team members?

New member | Level 2

I want my assistant (team member) to access all, but the marketing associate (team member) to only access one folder and not be able to see all the other folders. The marketing associate's one folder is good to go, but how I do I set up another folder that she won't see to move all the files from my personal folder into that second business folder? (Just upgraded to business with teams level...) Your help stuff covers edit versus can't edit, but I need access versus not access with two different folders in play.
