Remove a member from multiple folders at once

New member | Level 2

I have maybe 50 folders that I share with different people.  I need to remove one person from all folders.  I know how to do that one folder at a time, but wish to remoive the specific person from all folders at once.  How do I do that?

You cant I'm afraid Jeff. You need to do it individually.

Can I mass remove permissions from all shared content?

New member | Level 2

I am wondering if there is a way to mass revoke permissions? Like i want to just remove persmissions to this one person from all my files at once rather than go to each file and do it indvidually?

Hey there @alldolledup - as this is not possible at the moment, I'll pass your comments to the team as a feature request.

If there's anything else I can assist with in the meantime, please let me know.

This should be a MUST feature in Dropbox. Especially for Enterprise Admins.

I manage literally hundreds of folders among hundreds of users, and we change sharing quite often. People come and people quit.

A feature showing all shared folders and permission for a specific user is MANDATORY to well manage security in a company.

After 3 years this post is not answered by Dropbox yet. I really hope they start to think about proper user management in their system.

This feature would be extremely helpful for Admins like me who manage hundreds of folders being shared with hundreds of users.

Users come and go. We need a way to remove quickly someone when needed.

Also for cleaning up shared folders would help to review an account how many folders can access and what permissions are applied.

I'm REALLY looking forward to this update. Please make it a priority in your development!
