Notification in real time if someone else is viewing file

Notification in real time if someone else is viewing file

I used to have a pop-up box that would appear if I opened a file someone else on the team has open to avoid conflicted copies, but it's no longer appearing resulting in saved changes not being saved on their end. They are PC based and I am MAC based- just FYI. File is in a shared folder and we both access from our desktop, not online.

I think you are on about the Dropbox Badge. 

 

You can find info on it at https://help.dropbox.com/files-folders/share/badge-overview and make sure its switched on at https://help.dropbox.com/files-folders/share/badge-on-off

Thank you!  This was very helpful.  I didn't realize it was called a badge and not a notification.

Appreciate your quick response!
