Folder modification timestamp v2

Explorer | Level 3

Any update on returning the last modified timestamp for a folder when calling /get_metadata? In v1 I use the folder hash/modification time for monitoring when a folder content has changed, this way I avoid a potentially very long listing.

I see no folder modification time in the response to /alpha/get_metadata, either, is this feature dropped for good?

No update on this. I've added your vote to the feature request.

 

We recommend using /files/list_folder[/continue] for getting changes to folders. You can use /files/list_folder/longpoll for low-latency notification of changes in client-side apps, and webhooks for server-side apps.
