Intended Use of Dropbox Individual Accounts and Team Folders


U-M Dropbox


How can I use my U-M Dropbox and Dropbox Team Folders?


  • U-M Dropbox individual accounts and Dropbox Team Folders (MCommunity group-owned accounts intended for groups/teams to share data) are on a platform designed for user-to-user interaction
  • U-M Dropbox is not a platform designed for non-individual accounts and service accounts, which are used by batch jobs or other types of automation. Dropbox should not be used for these purposes
  • Instead, we recommend you review the Sensitive Data Guide to IT Services for a list of tools and services that may better fit your use case
