Hi there,

I shared a folder with several people. They are not yet a Dropbox customer and do not yet have an account. Can these people be notified by email if a file in this shared folder or folder changes?

Thanks in advance!

No, and even if they did have an account, they would only receive a weekly digest of changes made within the folder, and not a notification each time a file is changed.

Hi @Philigi, welcome to our Community! 

In order for the people to be able to access the folder, they would need a Dropbox account. 

Generally, people can indeed be notified by email for weekly updated in their shared folders.

If they don't want to create a Dropbox account, you can always try sharing a link with them. 

They'd be able to access it without one. 

I hope this clarifies things.
