Thats just the same solution as I put as #3 in the initial post. Why should everyone in both orginizations have to make such a change just to add someone in another tenant to a team folder. Clearly the real answer here is never to use team folders. Of course this has it's own issues but as long as dropbox sticks to this architectural design failure the choices appear to be leave dropbox or completely change our structure.

Consider 2 companies using Dropbox Business. Both already using team folders with hundreds of folders in each team folder. They decide they want to collaborate so the admin tries to add a member of the other team....
Try and add the new email to the group and get "This person isn't on your team"
Try and edit sharing from the file folder and get "You can manage folder membership in the Admin Console. Open in a new tab."
Try and share an existing folder it says You can't add members to a folder that's automatically shared with your whole team.
So you contact support and get the following suggestions
1) merge the companies into one Dropbox team
2) manually share each of the hundreds of folders on each side and keep sharing every time a new folder is created
3) completely change the folder structure to create a new root directory, move all content, and share that, and make sure nobody creates new folders outside of this redundant folder.
4)I am afraid this is not how Dropbox for business works. is there anything else I can help you with?
So the more companies that join dropbox business the less we can work together?
