Camera Uploads for Business

New member | Level 2

Camera uploads are an essential aspect of my design teams daily business functions and we are having to use their personal DB accounts and then transfer photo's to the business DB account.

This is a frustrating and unecessary inconvenience.  We are all capable of setting up the privacy we need. 

Please advise as to why this non-sensical rule has been set up. 

Thank you.

Totally agree!

It is unbelievable that as a "business level" user it is assumed that you are dumb enough as not to be able to turn on/off the camera upload feature yourself in case you see any privacy with uploading camera pictures to your Business Account.


What is the problem with just leaving the current mechanism of allowing the linking of a _second_ personal account only for camera uploads + a setting (by default off) that controls whether the camera upload feature is enabled or not?


Or even better... why not to allow fully per member private space inside the team storage?

I can upload photos automatically to my business account from my iPhone but my colleague can't and gets prompted to switch to his personal account... does anybody know what's happening?
