Can other people see my suggested contacts?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hello, all.

 

I am starting to use Dropbox - Basic Plan as a form of getting my team members to comment on the documents.  I share a link to a document with them, and asks for them to use the Comments panel in Dropbox for that document.

 

This may be a silly question:  Can the team members see my own suggested contacts when they are typing "@" and a list of suggested contacts pop up on their screen?

 

Much thanks in advance.

Hi @JaeAnn, thanks for posting on the Community!

 

Suggested contacts are only for your own account and no one would be able to see them.

 

However, there is always the possibility that other members would have similar suggested contacts for their own account.

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters!

Hello, Jay.

 

Thank you so very much for helping to clarify.  You have been most helpful!

 

I have not used the Comment function before, and I was really worried that I might inadvertently commit some privacy breach.

 

Cheers 

JaeAnn
