A member is not receiving our invitation

New member | Level 2

I have sent an invitation to a new team member twice on our Pro account and she is not receiving them. I have double checked the address. Please advise.

Is this to join a shared folder?

If so she should be able to accept it via www.dropbox.com/share

You could have her check her spam folder as well since you're sure about the email address you use @BMCBret

 

Keep us posted!

Items checked: Spam folder / Deleted items / Corporate firewall blacklist

 

This is not the first time we have experienced this issue with our account, and it is random, so it has been hard to pin down.

 

The workaround that we used, was to invite the team member on her personal email address and then change the address to her corporate email account.

 

Thanks everyone.

Happy Monday!

Hello Seema; I'm sorry to hear you're having issues with onboarding a member onto your team.

As this pertains to account specific information, I've just sent you a message to your Dropbox associated email address so we can work on this internally (thus avoiding to disclose any sensitive information).

Take a look at your inbox and we'll pick this up from there. 

Thanks in advance @Shassan!

@Mark: Thanks for helping keep our Community neat winking face

Re: New Member Invite

Hey @VBICT, welcome to the Dropbox Community!

If you're trying to invite the user to a Business team and you're the team admin, you can try sending the invitation once more by:

  1. Logging in to the Members tab in the Admin Console.
  2. Click on the gear to the right of the member you'd like to invite.
  3. Select Resend invite from the drop-down menu.

From there, ask the user to check their spam and filtered email.

Also, check if there's a proxy, VPN, firewall, security app, or even ISP/router that could be hindering traffic to these Dropbox domains?

Let us know of any updates!
