I sent an email via Dropbox, why don't I get a message saying I sent it?

Explorer | Level 4

I am new to dropbox & I just sent an email to two people I know to there email addresess through my dropbox account through my android phone & it is strange that you don't bend us an email to our inbox to let us know that the email was sent successfully through using your dropbox account & I cannot find in the file section where it says that this was even sent .
There is no viewing aspect to see that it says that you have sent this PDF document to these recipients.
Please add this as it will help customers know that it is vieable& that it has been sent.
I await a reply to my email address .
Thank you .

Hi @ed69, thanks for joining the Community!

 

When you share a file using the email directly, only the receiver would get an email notification of the shared file.

 

You can see who you’ve shared files to by navigating to the file itself on the site, or via right clicking on the file in Explorer/Finder and then clicking Share.

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters! If you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future.
