I have recently started a Dropbox Business trial for a team of 3, which I took out using my professional email address. I already have a Dropbox Plus account with my personal email address. I have invited my personal email to join the Business team. I receive the invitation emails and try to join. What happens is I click the link, a browser window opens which asks me to log in. I log in to my personal account, then I get a window asking me to log in to my Business account. And that's as far as it gets. I've sent 4 invitations to myself with the same result. Also, when I try to look at team members in the Business admin console, I get a blank page. I can see there are still only 3 members, with one invitation pending. All in all, a bit buggy. If these issues aren't cleared up, I won't be continuing after the end of the trial and I'll find another solution for my team.

I am admin of a small group of CAD designers, working remotely from each other. I thought Dropbox Business would be good collaborative tool. We are working on a project whose CAD structure is: Vehicle Assembly -> Main Assemblies -> Sub Assemblies -> Parts. All of us will have the Vehicle Assembly CAD model open, but we will each be working on a different lower-level Sub Assembly or Part. I want to set individual permissions for Part files and Sub Assembly files, so that when we each save our work we cannot overwrite work that others have saved earlier. The trouble is, The folder structure is such that the permissions cannot apply to the folder, but must apply to individual files within it. Files within the same folder need to have different permissions, so that only one person can write to it. Is that possible?
