Setting permissions in DropBox?

Hello everybody!

Does anyone know if it is possible to set permissions for certain folders in Dropbox? One of our customers uses Dropbox and have a few employees that are only there on short-term. These users should not have access to the entire folder tree.

Preferably we would like to set a permissions structure similar to the one that can be created using Active Directory and Security Groups.

Is this a feature of Dropbox?

Best Regards,

Björn

it may be better to get your employees to set up their own dropbox accounts and only share the folders you want to with them.

Well, it did not solve the exact issue. But it's the only way of doing it. So still a good answer
