View a list of files that have comments

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.

It has been a few years since this... can it be done now?  Either on dropbox.com or dropbox app.  Would help to keep on top of all the different tasks handed out to the different workers/departments and ensure they have been dealt with.

Hi @Jamesr1; I'm sorry for the late reply and thanks for joining the discussion here.


As you probably know, there's no way to see all of your files with comments in one place at this time. 

 

If you like, you can use our Share an Idea section to post your ideas for future enhancements or new implementations so other users can upvote them to show their interest. Here's a direct link for reference:
