Ability to be a member & sync more than one Dropbox Business account.

I need multiple drop box teams for different customers. It is not practical for everyone to create multiple e-mail addresses for each dropbox. Is there a solution for one person to be on different teams without having multiple e-mail addresses?

Hey Bob_Thrash, welcome to Dropbox Community!
 
Currently, you need to create an email address for each Dropbox account. Your request is not possible due to security and privacy reasons. 
 
Let me know if there’s anything further I can help with!

Hi, we have multiple dropbox business accounts across different divisions. Is there any way of one person being able to sync more than one dropbox business account on their devices or is the only way to manage this to share folders?

The only way is shared folders I am afraid.

Thanks, is there any way of suggesting this functionality to dropbox or seeing if there are any existing plans to add it?

I own more than one company. Can I open multiple dropbox business accounts (yes, obviously) & can i be logged into all of these additional accounts on my iphone app all at the same time? How about on my PC in file explorer (Dropbox - Company 1, Dropbox - Company 2, Dropbox - Company 3) & having all my different companies always be syncing at the same time?

Hey there @RyanT - how are you today?

As this is not possible at the moment I wanted to say thanks for sending along your feedback Ryan. I’ll be sure to pass your comments along to the team for their future consideration and as a feature request for an option to be able to sync 3 different accounts on your devices.

As you probably know, it is possible to have two separate accounts--your personal and work Dropbox accounts--on the same computer ( and mobile devices) yet there's no such option for 3 accounts.

Note that if you need access to two (or more) different Dropbox accounts on the same computer the best option would be to create a second user account within your operating system for the second Dropbox account. However, you would need to log out of one user account and log in to the other account to switch Dropbox accounts. This may or may not be convenient for your needs.

Alternatively, you could link only one Dropbox account to your computer and access any others via the web interface only at: www.dropbox.com 

I understand this is not optimal, yet, I hope this information helps to some extent. Please let me know if you have any more questions, feedback or suggestions and I will be happy to assist Ryan. 

Thanks!

Hi guys,

I have two Dropbox business accounts, I think. Not my own, but I have been added as a user to two separate Dropbox business accounts via different emails.

On my macbook, my Dropbox folder syncs with one of them. I want to access the other account to use that. Can I switch between them, or have both of them syncing at the same time? I can't find a way to even sign-out of my Dropbox app on mac and into the other, only on the website, which is pointless as I need the sync ability.

I really don't understand why Dropbox is so darn complicated for having multiple accounts honestly, it's an absolute nightmare. Dropbox seems to be a different piece of software entirely on the website compared to the app. 

Can someone please help me figure out how to sign into a different Dropbox account on the app so I can sync from another account?

Thanks.
