Will a deleted shared folder appear in the weekly digest?

About shared folders, if there was a previous mistake in sharing the wrong folder with many files inside, but it was promptly discovered and deleted, will the newly added folders and files appear in the weekly report sent to the shared recipients?

Thank you!

Thank you very much for your response, and I apologize for confirming once again! I just want to make sure that the members of the shared folder won't be able to see these incorrectly transmitted files or even their file names. So, after uploading the folder, if we promptly delete it within one or two minutes, will the data not appear in the weekly report, and will members be notified promptly as well? Thank you!

Hey @Fionna, thanks for posting your question to the Dropbox Community!

 

Did the recipients of the folder have the time to add the folder to their account?

 

If not, they shouldn't see it; the weekly report is usually just for new files and edits, etc., so it wouldn't appear.

 

I hope this helps, but if you have more questions, let me know.

Hi @Fionna, it should prevent any notification being sent via the weekly report, as you removed it immediately.
