Can I share licenses between users?

New member | Level 2

I'm wondering which version of Dropbox is best for me. We run a medical office and have 3 doctors, 2 NP's, 1 office staff member. We currently have a local server that holds our office files (patient charts, notes, etc), but would like to migrate all of this to the cloud. It's too costly to give each of these individuals a dropbox business account. I understand that each dropbox business account comes with three licenses. So can the three doctors share one license/login, the 2 NP's share one, and the office staff has one? We have about 300gb, and about 200-300k files total. 


I also understand that Dropbox Business CAN be HIPAA compliant as well?

You seem a tad mistaken tuanta, the 3 licences mean three people can use it independently. So you would need 6 licences in total. Whatever you do DO NOT share log on licences between people!

Dropbox CAN BE HIPAA compliant if you follow (and use 1 licence and log on per person!)
