What exactly can people I share files with see

What exactly can people I share files with see

I am submitting a grant application that had a specific deadline. I gave them dropbox links to view my materials. I really want to add one more document to this shared file. But I’m afraid that the group I shared it with, might be able to see the date that my new document was uploaded into the shared file. so can people who have share the link, see the actual date when Dokumenta was uploaded?

Okay, so this should be a shared link that they can access. Currently, the shared links would allow you to view the modification date of the file, meaning if it was newly uploaded or changed, they would see this date on the site. It isn't possible to change or hide this date.

Hi @Mediterranean Arts, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

 

Did you create a shared link to a folder, or a shared folder that is added to an account?

 

This will help me to assist further!

Hello!
I only pressed “copy link”, and pasted it on their grant application. This was for a folder.

Thank you. So how would I go about it next time if I don’t want them to see the modifications or upload dates?

There isn't really a way to do so, since modification dates are always visible on the Dropbox site.
