Hello, do you know if there is an option to have a real-time notification shown every time someone adds a file to a shared folder ?

Thanks :wink:

OK

 

On the desktop app, click Preferences, then Notifications, and make sure that all of the options mentioned are ticked.

 

Also go here for additional fine tuning: https://www.dropbox.com/account/notifications?role=personal

 

Hope it helps!

 

Regards

Thanks Casper, I have already seen in my phone and I have "in theory" the notifications for the Dropbox in "active mode".
On my computer, I have no idea where you can see the parameters to activate them.

 

I have never received a notification on my phone or on my computer when someone adds a file to the shared folder...and it is a problem because I have to check regularly to see if the folder has been updated.


It may be that I am the problem and I don't know how to do it. :thinking:  :disappointed_relieved:

Thanks !

When documents have been added to Dropbox, there should be real-time notification to those set-up to receive such notifications. The present weekly notification system does not provide timely info. Shareable has such a system, among other dms.

Hi @Casper777, sorry to reply to you on an unrelated thread - but we tried to reach out to you about the Super User program - if you're still interested in applying, can you resubmit with a different email address here please?
