Admin notification when new member(s) accepts invite

Helpful | Level 6

It would be great as a business user to be notified when new members have accepted team invites. Not invites to shared folders but invites to join the team. This trigger admins and group managers to then add them to groups or shared folders.

Problem:
There is often a lag between team invites that are sent and people actually joining them. Admins can't add new members to groups until they accept the invite. Often new users are left waiting until the admin realizes they have accepted and can now be added to the group.

1. Admin invites 10 people 

2. Only 3 people accept (day 1)

3. Admin adds these 3 people to the groups(s) and they 'add' shared folders are good-to-go

4. Then 2 more people accept invite (day 2)

5. Admin is not notified these 2 people are now ready to get shared folders. Often they are confused and finally email wondering where the shared files are. Admin then adds them and are good to go

6. Finally, the remaining 5 people accept the invites and are ready to be added to the groups (day7).

7. Some of those users were waiting for a day or two because the admin wasn't checking every day who had accepted and who had not.

Solution:

1. Admin invites 10 people 

2. Only 3 people accept and the admin is notified and then adds them to group and they are good-to-go

3. Finally, the remaining 7 people accept and the admin is notified (when each person accepts) and then adds them to group and they are good-to-go

As you can imagine the more members added the more you have to constantly watch the pending invites.

And I still don't understand why I can't at the same time I send an invitation, I can't send also invitation to folders. The process is ridiculiously long between the time I add someone, wait until acceptation (no idea when), wait until I'm able to add folders to this person and acceptation of sharing by the member. Quite more efficient without team...
