Where can I see who invited somebody to my shared folder?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I own a folder that I shared with multiple people. All of them have edit permissions, and the "manage access" permission is set for all people with edit permissions, so they can invite new collaborators to the folder. This means people might be added to the shared folder that I did not invite explicitly myself. If that happens (which is generally fine by me), I would like to be able to see which of the members of the shared folder invited them. Is there any place where I can find this information? I have already looked at the "events" section of the Dropbox webpage, however that only seems to cover when a person joined the folder, but not the invitation itself.

 

Many thanks in advance for your help!

Hello @Shelley S.5 - welcome to our Community!

I'm not really sure to what you're referring to or what exactly is troubling you; could you elaborate on your inquiry please? 

To better help with this, I'd need the following info: 

1. What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

2. What's not working for you? Could you share a screenshot so I can have a visual too?

3. Are you using the web version, our desktop app or the mobile application?

Feel free to include any additional information you think might help. Thanks!

PS: I removed the profanity from your post to align with our Community's Guidelines.
