Follow folders/receive notifications whenever new file is uploaded

New member | Level 2

I need to be able to receive notifications whenever a file is uploaded to a shared folder. Other people on my team with the same level of access have the ability to "Follow" certain folders and receive email notifications whenever a file is uploaded to a folder they are following. I don't see that option when I check the folders. Please advise.

Hey there @tessdennis, I hope you're well today!

 

If they are receiving email notifications for when files are uploaded to certain folders, this would most likely be for files that are uploaded via file requests.

 

While there isn't currently an option to enable email notifications for uploaded files, if you're using the desktop app then perhaps enabling desktop app notifications would be helpful for this.

 

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions!
