Can I check to see who accepted an invitation to a folder?

I used to be able to see who had accepted an invitation to a folder. Is that feature gone? or moved? How do I check to see who accepted an invitation to a folder? Thanks!

If they have Dropbox installed on their computer, they'll also receive a desktop notification if they have them enabled (and they are, by default). They will also see a notification if they log into the Dropbox website.

Invitations no longer work that way. They don't need to be accepted. Once you invite someone, they have access to the folder and are able to add or remove it from their Dropbox account at will. They're either a member or they aren't.

That's too bad. For many, the invitation goes to their spam and they never know they've received it. As the "inviter" it's helpful to know if they've accepted. Poor choice to lose that feature.

Doesn't do the job, and have you even read the question? I'd rather have the ability to know who accepted my share invitation than the darned extra terabyte! A genuine loss for me and a time killer. Now I would have had to bother all my new clients who are very busy people with a formerly unnecessary phone call or email. They won't like it at all, so I won't do it! Super bad and spoils my day! Phooey!
