Read a folders activity with the dropbox api

I have just started playing with the dropbox api and using python to access my dropbox folders. I have successfull been able to connect to my dropbox account and explore the folders sorted on this account with the following few functions.

dbx = dropbox.Dropbox(token)
res = dbx.files_list_folder(folder)
metadata = dbx.files_get_metadata((folder))

However I am most interested in the activity on the folder as displayed in the website access to dropbox (see https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Files-folders/How-can-I-see-a-specific-folder-s-activity-on-my-accou...)

Am I able to access this information using python and the dropbox api?

The Dropbox API doesn't expose a way to retrieve all events for a file/folder like that, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though. 

You can use files_list_revisions to list the file versions for a particular file though.
