Can I have an email automatically sent to shared folder members whenever a file is added?

Is there a way to get Dropbox to send shared folder members an email when the folder owner uploads something new to an existing shared folder?

Hi @Jen_0, thanks for posting on the Community!

Emails can’t be sent for individual files, as this could result in a large number of emails being sent to many people.

The only indication of new files would be via the Dropbox desktop application showing that new files have been added and synced to the user’s machine.

There is a weekly digest that can be sent out for any shared folder activity, however, this can be disabled by any user from here.

I hope this helps to clarify matters!
