I have someone who wants me to create a Dropbox directory for him so he can upload files to me. I thought just sending him a file request was enough, which worked fine for other people who had to send me stuff. But he's saying I need to set him up so he can edit that directory by organizing the files, which he can then refer to certain files. I have no idea what he's talking about and I've searched for info about "directory" and am coming up with nothing. Is this a function that is only available on Dropbox Business?
Hey there @IntheClouds - I'm not sure to what you're referring exactly yet I'll try to help with this.
You are correct to think that you need to open up a file request for others to upload to your Dropbox account (even without an account - they just need an email address for you to send the file request).
If they need edit rights as you described, you'll have to share a folder with them and they'd need to have a Dropbox account and the available quota (i.e. space) to accommodate and edit the folder (i.e. directory in this case) in question.
I hope this helps and please let me know if there's anything else you'd like to ask!
