As for a follow-up question, is it also possible to share file(s) with another person by sending them a simple link to access the work ... one that may or may not allow them to edit the file(s)? If so, would you kindly explain/describe the correct process for accomplishing this? Thank you.
The basic steps will be as follows.
Set permissions on dropbox.com
If you’re the owner or an editor of a shared folder, you can change folder permissions. If you’re the owner of a shared file, you can add or remove people from that file.
I recommend that you visit the article linked above for more information. Please let us know if you have follow up questions and we'll be happy to help!
