How to notify people automatically when new file

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hello,

 

I have a shared folder with someone. I would like that when I create a new fil this person is automatically notified, but I can't see how I should do this.

 

Any idea ?

 

Thanks for your help

Hi @campiii57, thanks for posting on the Community!

 

Generally, notifications are specific to each users' account, so some could enable or disable notifications in the Dropbox desktop application or the site itself.

 

Currently, there isn't a method to force someone to be notified of new files being added to a shared folder if they have disabled it on their end. 

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters!
