Notifications for shared folders when files are uploaded via a file request.

Notifications for shared folders when files are uploaded via a file request.

New member | Level 2

Hi, 

We have shared folders that we "Request files" for from external people. The files being uploaded to this folder then need to be reviewed by one of the shared folder users (another member of my organisation).

I personally receive notifications, both email and desktop alerts, when files are added to this folder. I presume this is because I set up the "Request files". How can I set it up so that another member of my organisation also receives notifications when files are uploaded to this shared folder? 

Thank you for any insights or clarity you can provide on this!

Hello there @imogenc, I hope you're having a good start to your week!

 

At the moment, only the person who set up the file request would receive email notifications for uploads via the file request links.

 

However, I understand how this would be a useful feature for you. I could suggest sharing your request for this feature in our dedicated area of the Community here.

 

As a potential workaround, if the other members of your organisation are using the desktop app, perhaps enabling desktop notifications will help.

 

Sorry that I can't be of much more help with this, but please let me know if you have any questions!
