    1. Important: If you also have a personal Dropbox account, ensure you are logged out of that account on the web and on the desktop application before creating your U-M Dropbox account
  3. After authenticating through Weblogin, you will be taken to the "Single sign-on" page. Click Continue
  4. Finally, on the "Welcome to University of Michigan's Dropbox Business" page:
    1. Confirm your name is correctly listed
    2. Check the "I agree to the Dropbox Business Agreement" box. Note: Our contract with Dropbox will always supersede any click-through agreements that Dropbox shows to you
  5. Click "Finish joining the team"
