macOS Sierra Recommendations
- Update to the latest version of the Dropbox desktop client (version 10.4.26). To ensure Dropbox continues to sync properly, users should download the latest version of the desktop client, which has been updated for macOS Sierra.
- Keep the Dropbox folder in the default location, not in Desktop or Documents. To prevent any issues, please ensure your users keep their Dropbox folder in the default location. If your users update to the latest version of the desktop client (10.4.26), it will walk them through this process.
- Manage warning notifications. When users move files from an iCloud-synced folder into Dropbox, they may see warning notifications from iCloud. These are unrelated to Dropbox but can be confusing so users can disable these notifications by following these steps.
Access is currently not available to affiliates, departed employees, alumni or service accounts.
Faculty and Staff that need to share files and folders with these other GT affiliations can use the Sharing methods within the service to enable collaboration without the collaborator having a GT Dropbox account themselves. If GT account to GT account collaboration is required, alternatives such as Office 365 OneDrive and SharePoint should be used at this time.
