we have a consultant who helps us remotely, we wish to add them to one of our Dropbox Team Folders, yet since they already have a business account (their own) I don't want to send an invite and be paying for an account that's not used?
the content in the folder is being deleted and added to regularly, it feels like a work around to be forced to re-share each file/folder as it's created, sounds like something I need to log with tech support?
Hi! Checking in to see if there have been any updates since this posted? I have a non-team member—who has their own DB account—and needs access to a team folder. Is there any way to share the entire team folder with them, rather than the files/folders within the folder?
Hey there @jestar,
Thanks for posting your question on the Community!
Currently, you can share team folders with groups that are created by the team's admin and share the content of the folder with users that aren't in your team.
However, some teams have access to the new team folder structure, which allows admins to manage access by adding users and groups. You can find more info here.
I hope this helps to some extent!
Appreciate the quick feedback @Lusil! I have admin access and created a new group, but it only shows an option to invite members. When I click this and enter the individual's email, an error message pops up telling me this person is not a team member and cannot add them to the group. Any advice?
Thanks for nudging me back, @jestar!
Since this functionality is something we're still considering implementing in the future, your feedback helps us develop a better experience for you.
As soon as there's more info on this, I'll make sure to get back to you.
In the meantime, you can continue sharing the content inside the team folder with users that are not in your team.
I understand that this isn't the ideal reply you were looking for, but I hope it helps!
