How to view all external accounts - new question on dropbox' 2020 enterprise capabilities

Explorer | Level 4

All,

 

we're running dropbox as enterprise storage. I found this https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Dropbox-files-folders/How-to-view-all-external-accounts/td-p/267112 where an user asked about any possibilities to view all externally shared files and with which account they're shared. Surprisingly, that's exactly what I need as well ... 

 

Is there any way to solve this issue (via activity reports???) in 2020? In 2018 dropbox couldn't help ...

 

Any suggestions (would save me a lot of time and hazzle).

Thank you, 

Michael.

Hi @ddragovicz; welcome to our Community!

 

Quoting from the relevant Help Center article, if you’re the team admin or user management admin of a Dropbox Business team, you can control and track how data is shared inside and outside your company.

 

Dropbox records all internal and external sharing actions, including shared folder creation, shared link creation, sharing of Paper docs, and changes made to shared folder and shared link permissions. 

 

For a more customizable view of the activity of the team regarding external sharing, you can adjust the filters and options there (within  the Admin Console under the Activity Tab) and then generate and export the activity report as normal. 

 

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any follow up questions.
