This article refers to a feature that is only available to Dropbox Business teams. Specifically, team admins will see a pop-up window on the Dashboard tab of the admin console, where Dropbox suggests new members to add to a team.
As a Dropbox Business team admin, members of your team can also suggest new members to add to the team via the Team tab in their account.
If you're the admin of a Dropbox Business team or a free team, you may also receive requests from non-members to join your team.
The Suggested members feature suggests additional people to add to your Dropbox Business team. See below for answers to specific questions on this feature.

How does Dropbox determine suggested members for my team?
Suggested team members will fulfill all three of the following criteria:
The suggested member will share the same email domain with the Dropbox Business admin
The suggested member will be a current member of a shared folder on the Dropbox Business team account
The suggested member is not currently a member of the Dropbox Business team
How can I see all of the suggested members for my team?
The list of suggested members can be accessed from the Dashboard page of the Admin Console. On the Dashboard page, scroll to the bottom to see suggestions. You can also invite suggested members directly from this page.
Note: This section of the Dashboard will only appear if there are suggested members for the Dropbox Business team.
Which shared folders will a suggested member have access to?
To check the sharing status of a suggested member, the admin of a Dropbox Business team can view sharing activity by viewing a sharing audit log from the Activity page of the Admin Console. Sharing audit logs capture information on both shared folders and shared links. For many of these events, the logs will also specify whether the action involves someone outside your team.
