Remote team solution

We've been using 1Password in our agency for a long time now and have a shared password file on our local agency server that syncs to everyone's Mac or phone (iOS and Android) over the local network. We're moving our team to a fully remote team and won't have a local server to host the file any longer.

How can we continue to share this single vault through our team if we are now using Google Drive as our shared company file server?

    @steveguberman: Ahh, definitely a bit of a dilemma there! :unamused:

    While you can use 1Password for Mac Folder Sync with Google Drive, (since a local copy is stored and changes are sync'd), this isn't officially supported, either by Google or AgileBits. And the primary downside is this precludes the use of 1Password for iOS and Android, as Google Drive syncing is not available there.

    A better option would be Dropbox Sync, since it's been thoroughly tested with 1Password, and fully supported by Dropbox. In our experience, they do a great job with conflict resolution, which is sure to come up with many members of your team touching the data.

    Dropbox also happens to be fully supported across all current versions of 1Password on all platforms. And while personal accounts and sharing work just fine, I've also heard good things about their enterprise support, should you choose to go that route. I hope this helps! :)

    Thanks @brenty - so we'd basically just move the 1Password files to a Dropbox account that we can all see?

    Hi @steveguberman ,

    To share your 1Password data in Dropbox, you could use a shared Dropbox account, or you can also share folders within Dropbox across multiple accounts, and store your 1Password data in that shared folder. We have instructions on how to share a vault in our support documentation, and this document includes instructions on how to share a folder in Dropbox. If you have any further questions, we're here for you! :)

    That's great, I'll definitely look into making that happen @Megan - thank you!

    Hi @steveguberman ,

    We share a lot of vaults this way among our team here at AgileBits, so it should be a simple matter, but if anything goes wonky, you know where to find us.
