Notify shared folder user the location of a file

New member | Level 2

I have a shared folder that has about 50 sub folders, I have created a new file inside the main shared folder/subfolders. How do I tell someone that already has access to the shared folder where the file is? Is there a way that dropbox can do this without me having to email that person and type the full path to the file, then for them to manually go and find it in the multiple sub folders?

Hello @whitwhit, thanks for checking in with us. 

 

If they have added the shared folder to their account, they should be able to find the file by simply searching for the file's name. 

 

You can also comment on the file and @mention them, which should notify them. 

 

Let me know if you have any other questions, cheers!
