Perhaps a great new function sending an email notification when new directories are created or modified, as well as when new files are added or modified in a shared directory.

I don’t know many people who check their Dropbox regularly for updates and I find this a more user friendly option.

Hi @Sdok33 !

 

This idea is going to need some additional support before we can share your suggestion with the team.

 

I went ahead and updated the status here so other users can back you up!

 

See you around the Community and have a lovely weekend!

This request i've got from a lot of my customers, and i've seen other threads in the forum about it.

 

It makes complete sense to add this function as you have no way to see whats changed in a huge shared folder without digging through the files/folders.

Thanks @TonyEnglund, Now if you could get all your clients to vote for this that would be a step in the right direction. 😊👍

@Sdok33  , i would love to have them voting, but to get them here ususally do not work that well. "It's for us nerds and pros to solve their problems" 🤓

@Sdok33  , we have actually made a kind of solution for this through API, but it doesn't work well enough and requires some serious VM's with db and email functionality which seems really unnecessary. The weekly email from Dropbox with changed files are almost what we need, so it's just a little tweak from Dropbox and it's good to go.

Please please add this function. We would like an email notification to be sent when uploading files to a shared folder.
