Dropbox Business offers domain verification and invite enforcement to make the process of onboarding faster and easier for companies, organizations, and businesses.
Domain verification allows a team admin to verify ownership of an email domain with Dropbox. Invite enforcement can be enabled after domain verification is completed.
Invite enforcement will require all invited users with a personal Dropbox or Paper account created using an email on the verified domain to select from one of two options:
Note: Teams on an Enterprise plan also have access to two additional features: domain insights and account capture.
Team admins can choose to verify a primary domain, which is the top-level domain of their website (for example, “dropbox.com”.) Team admins can also verify subdomains, which are secondary domains of their website (for example, “sales.dropbox.com” and “dropbox.com/sales”).
When a team admin verifies a primary domain, they will see a checkbox next to Include all subdomains. Leave this checked to verify all the subdomains of the primary domain. Verifying a subdomain won’t show this option.
There are three different ways you can verify your domain:
For either of the first two options (adding a meta tag or uploading an HTML file), you'll likely need access to modify the code on your website. This is a secure and relatively fast option, since Dropbox will be able to see the changes as soon as they are live on your website.
If you don't have access to modify your website directly, or you don't have a website hosted at the domain you'd like to verify, you can create a TXT record on your domain host's website.
Most domain hosting services should have this functionality, however the specific steps on each service will vary. If you are unable to locate the steps for modifying your DNS configuration, please contact your domain host's support team or documentation for help. Dropbox cannot provide domain host support.
Once you have established domain ownership, you can enable invite enforcement for each domain. Enabling invite enforcement will cause all existing and future invites on this domain to be enforced—that is, users will be forced to either join your team, or to change the email on their existing Dropbox or Paper account to an address that does not use your verified domain. To enable invite enforcement:
Once you have completed these steps, all existing and future invites will be enforced on this domain.
If you were unable to complete the domain verification process, you can do so later using the Fix verification option.
