The article discusses how admins can manage groups.

Learn more about groups.

How can I control who can create groups?

Dropbox Business admins can choose whether team members can create user-managed groups. By default, team members are allowed to create user-managed groups.

If you do allow members of your Dropbox Business team to create groups, users are able to ask to join these groups. Group creators can approve or deny any requests to join their group.

Note: Only admins can create company-managed groups. Users cannot ask to join a company-managed group.

  1. Sign in to with your admin credentials.
  2. Click Admin Console.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. Click Groups.
  5. Select No next to User-managed groups.

How can I view my team's groups?

  1. Sign in to with your admin credentials.
  2. Click Admin Console.
  3. Click Groups.

All groups created by any member of your team will be listed on this page.

How can I edit my team's groups?

To edit a group, view your team’s groups, and select the name of the groups you’d like to edit, or create a new one by clicking the New group button. As the admin of a Dropbox Business team, you automatically act as an manager for each group within your team, and you can manage those groups as a manager.

How can I view and manage a specific team member's groups?

As the admin of your Dropbox Business team, you can also view and manage the groups of any single team member. This can be helpful when onboarding new employees, since you can easily add them to all of the correct groups, as well as when an employee changes roles and you need to adjust their groups.

  1. Sign in to with your admin credentials.
  2. Open the Admin Console.
  3. Click Members.
  4. Click the name of the team member’s account you’d like to view.

Under Group membership, you'll see a list of all the groups that team member is a part of.
