Re: Sharing new dropbox folder with two bus. associates, both "Banned Users"


Hello and welcome to the Community @EAC9597

When users are banned sharing will not work for the period they are banned for. 

The solution is to share a link with them, for now. They could see the Dropbox shared link content even if they didn't have a Dropbox account. winking face
