How to manage team folders

Team folders help admins manage team files and folders. You can share team folders with your entire Dropbox Business team, or with specific groups.

If you want to manage your team folders, or have issues with team folders, read on for specific instructions.

Sections in this article:

If you see the Content tab instead of the Team folders tab, your team has the new team folder structure. You can manage this team space in the content manager.

How to rename a team folder

On a Dropbox Business team, team admins can rename team folders in the team folder manager:

  1. Sign in to dropbox.com using your admin credentials.
  2. Click Admin Console.
  3. Click Team folders.

Note: When a team admin renames a team folder, the name is changed for all members.

I want to rename a team folder, but I'm not the admin of my team

Only the team admin of a Dropbox Business or Enterprise team can create, rename, or delete a team folder.

How to move the team folder

Team folders can't be moved to a new location in your Dropbox, nor can they be "nested" within another folder. 

How to manage access to, archive, or permanently delete a team folder

Only a Dropbox Business team admin can manage access to a team folder:

  1. Sign in to dropbox.com using your admin credentials.
  2. Click Admin Console.
  3. Click Team folder.
  4. Click Manage next to the team folder name.
  5. From here you can add groups next to Add groups, or change group permissions. Click the dropdown menu next to the user or group name to change permissions. From here, you can Remove access, or give edit or view-only permissions.

Important notes:

  • Archiving: An archived team folder is still accessible to admins via the team folder manager; archived team folders are not available to team members
  • Removing: Removing a user's or group's access to a team folder essentially unshares that folder
  • Permanently deleting: If you permanently delete a team folder, it cannot be recovered, even by Dropbox support
  • Free teams: Admins of free teams cannot take any of these actions on a team folder

If you're a team member, and you'd like to remove a team folder to save space on your computer, consider using Smart Sync instead.

How to move a folder out of the team folder

If you need to move a folder out of a team folder, an admin can  move that folder on dropbox.com. If you're not an admin, contact your admin for help.

How to move a shared folder into a team folder

Only the owner of a shared folder can move it into a team folder. If you're not the owner of a shared folder, you cannot move it to a team folder. However, you can contact the shared folder owner and request that they do this for you.

If you are the owner of a shared folder, you can move it into a team folder in one of two ways:

  • On the Dropbox desktop app: drag the shared folder into the team folder
  • On dropbox.com: move the folder (the Move option appears when you click the "" beside the folder name)

Note: If you move a shared folder into the team folder, the team admin becomes the new owner of the folder.

I'm trying to move a shared folder into another shared folder

You can't move a shared folder into another shared folders. This is referred to as "nesting," and will break shared folder functionality.

However, team members on a Dropbox Business, Enterprise, or free team can move a shared folder into a team folder.
