Setting up a shared folder on Dropbox

Your drop box folder must be named as follows “FirstName-LastName-DSGN”. Each of your assignments must be named “first-last-Ch-#-#.pdf”

Once you have set up your drop box account and folder, you need to share the folder with me so I can access it’s content. Go to and go inside of your folder for this class.

To demonstrate I’m using a folder called “Demo”.


Then go to the folder icon with the rainbow on it, the one that says “Share a folder” in the image above. Click the button and then a box that says “Share ‘folder-name’ with others” will pop up.drop-box-2Enter my email as show above and hit send. Then if your homework isn’t already in your folder uploaded it and you are good to go.
