How to add an admin from another team to manage your team

A Dropbox Business team can add an admin from another team to manage their own team. The new admin then becomes a "multi-team admin".

  • Note: The other admin’s team must be on the Enterprise plan for Dropbox Business

The new admin, or "multi-team admin", will have all the capabilities of an admin from your own team, except:

  • They can’t access the Billing or Help pages in the Admin console
  • They can’t sign in to a team member’s account

Want to give admin permissions to someone on your own team instead? Learn how.
