Dropbox announced the latest feature heading for its business customers today during its earnings call. Multi-Team Admin will allow businesses to share admin privileges across multiple Dropbox Business accounts to make collaboration with multiple groups and departments more seamless.

Here’s how Dropbox describes Multi-Team Admin:

This feature will give large organizations centralized controls they need to keep their work flowing and is especially valuable for many customers whose businesses have grown in scale. It allows them to manage multiple Dropbox Business teams by giving various departments admin privileges to sync and update their Business accounts without having to sign in and out repeatedly, addressing some of the major pain points that customers have shared with us.

Multi-Team Admin will go live for Dropbox Business accounts signed up for its early access program on February 27th.

So we’ve begun building tools that give complex organizations using Dropbox Business the sophisticated, centralized controls they need. As a first step, we’re introducingmulti-teamadmin, a new feature that lets admins more easily understand and manage multiple Dropbox Business teams. 

The above graphic illustrates the following use case:

For instance, say your company’s Sales, Marketing, and Finance teams each sets up a Dropbox Business account for their respective department. The admin for each can grant admin rights to a central company IT team, who can then track activity across all three Business accounts. These multi-team admins can also adjust settings for any of the individual accounts.

Users can sign up for Multi-Team Admin on the 27th.
