How to configure Dropbox for Business app?


The Dropbox for Business is file hosting service that particularly caters to the needs of enterprises and organizations. Dropbox for Business teams up with various third-party EMM providers to provide additional control over how the dropbox app is used on the mobile devices.

There are a few configurations that have to be performed to integrate with the EMM providers. Mobile Device Manager Plus makes use of the Managed App Configurations, to apply these configurations on the app while it is being distributed.
