Email notification when folder added to followed folder

Email notification when folder added to followed folder

I was wondering if there was a way to get notifications when a new subfolder is added to a folder I follow. I am currently able to get notifications when material is added directly to the folder, and I can follow the subfolders to get notifications when additional material is added to those files. However, I was curious if there was a way to get notifications that the new folder has been created. If this isn't a native dropbox feature, does anyone have a workaround for it? My work is trying to keep us in the dropbox web client and avoiding having us download the dropbox app, but we are trying to avoid having to manually email folks that new folders are added. Thanks in advance!

 

UPDATE: We waited a while and when material was added to the subfolder, I got an email, it just had a bit of a delay to sending the email. Nevermind!!!
