Sharing at a glance

Learn more about sharing methods available to Dropbox Business admins

Every team has a unique workflow, so we offer many ways to share files and folders. Read these quick snapshots about each sharing method and then check out other articles in this category for more details.


Edit access in a shared folder

Choose specific colleagues who need to edit files in one of your Dropbox folders, and watch edits sync almost instantly. Anyone with edit access can alter, add, and delete files in your folder.


Team folder

Team folders make sharing across your organization easier. Admins create team folders, which are automatically shared with all members of your Business team.


View-only access with shared files or links

Shared files and links are the Dropbox solution to email attachments. There’s one main difference between them: only people you specifically invite to a shared file can view the file, but anyone with a link can view your files, no Dropbox account required!

Regardless of if you use a shared file or link, people you share with can comment on files or download their own copy. What they can’t do is alter the original file.
