You cannot invite external Dropbox users (non U-M) to the entire Dropbox Team Folder, only subfolders in a Dropbox Team Folder.

Resolution

See the below site for details:  

Additional Information

"Members" of an Mcommunity group will no longer be able to request Team Folders. Only "Owners" of the Mcommunity group will be able to request a Team Folder. Team drives can only be created by faculty and staff. Students are able to share a folder from their Dropbox account with other students. 

Warning: MCommunity groups larger than 1000 members will not sync to U-M Dropbox. Therefore, do not choose an MCommunity group with more than 1000 members as the owner of your Team Folder.
