Receiving notifications for upload on Dropbox

New member | Level 2

Hello guys:


I sent out dropbox folder link to a client few weeks ago, the client has requested that he wants to be receiving notification when next i upload documents on the folder. Please how do i get my dropbox account to send notification for subsequent uploads? Many thanks in anticipation of your response.

Re: Receiving Notifications for upload on drop box


Hi there @Olashile Ganikale, thanks for reaching out to us. 


In general, you can set to receive notifications to your desktop and mobile apps, and also to your email


Although you may not get a notification every time a file is added to a shared folder, you can receive a weekly email for Activity in shared folders.


You can also have a look at this thread, where you can upvote and comment with other like-minded users who have requested such a feature. 


I hope this helps to some extent, but let me know if you have any other questions. Cheers!
