Is it possible to sync passwords across vaults?

We would like to create a single vault for each member of our team and have passwords synchronize across vaults. This would make it easier to understand who has access to what passwords - right now if any member of a shared vault adds a password to the vault then all members of the vault have access to that password which is a little more liberal than we'd, ideally, like to be with our passwords.

    @mg975: It isn't possible to have the same item be in multiple vaults at once. Each vault is encrypted with a separate set of keys, which is what makes it secure (so that Joe in HR doesn't have access to the accounting vault just because he's part of the team; he needs to be granted access to that vault to get the keys to decrypt it). You can create as many additional vaults as you wish, and share them with some, all, or none of your team members. So instead of creating copies of the same item to put in multiple vaults shared only with certain people, and item which needs to be shared with, say, Joe, Dave, and Tina just needs to be in a vault shared with all of them. And, that way, if and when you need to give Joe, Dave, and Tina additional items, you just need to save them to that same vault you already shared with them. I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any other questions! :)
