How to Suspend a Dropbox Business Team User

Dropbox offers IT admins a way to suspend users but retain their accounts and data. The option is particularly useful in cases where temporary suspension is needed over a complete removal of the account. When a Dropbox admin suspends a user, the account ceases to function, including any login attempt and data syncing from existing desktop or mobile clients.

Step 4: Search for the User

Step 5: Click on the Settings Icon

Next to the name of a person, you will see a settings icon. Click it and it will expand to show you some options. Now, click on the Suspend Member option from the dropdown.

Step 6: Confirm and Suspend

You can delete the content from the user’s device by clicking on the Yes checkbox as seen in the screenshot below. If you rather want that content to be there, you can simply select no and proceed to click on the Suspend button. That will suspend the user until you reactivate the profile again.
