How do you turn off comment notifications for a file?

New member | Level 2

I am making comments on PDFs in my Dropbox for Business account.  I get an email notification for one, and cannot find anywhere in the settings or comments pane to turn this feature off (nor is there an unsubscribe notification in the email, which might actually be a GDPR violation).  How can I turn off these pointless comment notifications?

Hi @rgerkin, Can you please browse the file in Dropbox web? While previewing the file, click the options (...) menu on the top right, and then choose Unsubscribe from notifications

There needs to be a way to do this to a lot of files at once. I have dozens that I need to do this on and I cannot take the time to open each one and click this option!
