View a list of files that have comments

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

As owner of our Dropbox I’ll process over a thousand jpegs from a photoshoot and post them for AD’s and CD’s to make pics from and comment on. How can we view a list of what files have comments? Is there a way to separate files that have comments from the group? Typically we will have a dozen or so sub-folders identifying different scenes. Can sub-folders be searched for comments? We could really use something permanent at the drop site. Notifications are good as an alert but not as a file reference.

Hello @wkridgeway,

 

At the moment it isn't possible to view all of the comments you've made on files at once in a list.

 

But since you have a big project coming and you want to keep track of the changes on your files with your teammates,  I'd suggest using Dropbox Paper to keep track of everything!

 

In a Paper doc, you can collaborate, comment and tag collaborators, reference your files and assign tasks to other o... which you can also keep track from here.

 

Thanks!

Dropbox should enable this.

This kinds of solution shouldn't be the accepted solution as it is a bad workaround.

@ankitshah009 I agree, I also needed this option a few days ago and it just wasn't there. That was a very unproductive day for me.
