Do you have an idea for Dropbox Paper? Share it with us here!



I have a question about posting to a team account with plenty of space. Any ideas?

New member | Level 2

I am a parent that has taken a bunch of pictures for a sports team,  I am trying to post/share the team pictures in/on the team account. I was set to be able to edit on the team account however because the volume is larger thern my personal account will handle I am unable to share unless I upgrade.  How do I share without having to pay as the teams account has plenty of space?

Re: posting to a team account


Hello @micholyk - welcome to the Dropbox family!

It's always nice to see new faces around; thanks for posting your first question nerd face

From what I gather, you must be sharing a folder with the team and as shared folders count towards each member's quota, you're getting a notification that you're out of space; thus prompting you to upgrade so you can accommodate the content of the folder in question. Please correct me if I got anything wrong here.

As you'd like to only upload to the other account, I'd suggest having them open a file request for you to access and submit your files as in this way you're not limited by your account's available space

From there, they could share a link to the folder if you'd like to view the content; you won't be able to edit though (in that case you'd need to upgrade indeed or make/add some space). 

I hope this information helps and please let me know if there's anything you'd like to ask; I'd be happy to follow up!
