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



Will users on the Basic plan be able to utilize the full text search if I upgrade my account?

New member | Level 2

I am looking to potentially upgrade my dropbox account to get the use of Full text search. If i upgraded and shared a folder with a basic user would they be able to search the shared folder using the full text search or would they also need to upgrade their account to use this function?

They would also need to upgrade to get the functionality.
