I received a dropbox link from my boss, when i download to my dropbox it shows "only you" under the title of "member". After I have updated the folder, I added my boss as one of the members and share the link to her. But she cannot see the update I have made to the folder, any idea? thanks

Re: Members cannot see updates

Hey @Eddy Leung, welcome to our Community and thanks for using Dropbox!

Shared links are normally used to grant view and download rights, not edit ones. 

To collaborate on this folder, you can simply share the folder directly with your boss instead of exchanging links. Note that you'll both need to have enough quota to do this.

Let me know if you have any questions!
