More robust and expedient notifications options eg. text messages

Would love to have notifications more robust, ie: could the developers add text notifications to the options in addition to email? Comments in Paper are GREAT but if the team collaborators don’t know the doc is there it’s less than effective.

The weekly digest I really don't get. Most of the stuff that goes into Dropbox and Paper is actionable, time sensitive and needs immediate attention, so while I don't mind the weekly digest, it's not really of any significant value from an activity notification standpoint.

Would love to get some additonal upvotes for this. I would think that more robust notifications for collaborative changes/comments would be on alot of dropboxers wishlists

Hi,

 

I couldn't agree more. The icon in the system tray only shows changes when I click on it. I want a push notification by email. Like Bob mentioned I don't click every hour, or day,  on the icon in my taskbar.

 

Dropbox, is it that hard to implement email notification? The whole idea for me using shared Dropbox folders as a project management tool is to get notified when changes are made, mentions etc.

I would also find additional notifications helpful. While my company is small enough that collaboration isn't often needed, there are some staff who need to receive notification of document edits by text, email, and app in order for them to take notice.
