Recreate events timeline using the API

Recreate events timeline using the API

Mukesh N.

I'm attempting to recreate the events timeline found on the Dropbox web interface here https://www.dropbox.com/events using the API. Poking around the docs, I found the /team/log/get_events [1] resource for business accounts, which is useful but doesn't have all the information I need. Should I be calling /delta [2] to reproduce this timeline or should I couple that with something else?

By the way, I know there's an RSS feed for this but that's not what I'm looking for.

Unfortunately there isn't a real analogue for the web site's events page in the Dropbox API. The Dropbox for Business /log/get_events endpoint doesn't have all of the user-specific file level information, as you mentioned. The /delta endpoint is meant as a way to efficiently keep your app's state up to date, and won't necessarily report every event like the events page. I'm sending this along as a feature request though.
