Update info on shared folder

If I have a share folder and I add images then at a later date I or someone in that group adds another image is there a way to notify all in the group that there are changes within that shared folder?

Hey @peterp53, thanks for using Dropbox and welcome to our Community!

Apart from the weekly digest, there's no direct way to do this with Dropbox at this moment, but you can send them an email or an IM to notify them about your new uploads in the shared folder.

However, if they have the desktop app installed and running, they will get a notification there.

Alternatively, you can leave a comment on the files using @mentions to tag the people you want to notify. 

You can also take a look at our Spaces feature. I think it might be a good fit in your case.

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any more questions, Peter!
