Disable/Enable Notifications for Certain Folders

Disable/Enable Notifications for Certain Folders

New member | Level 1

Is there any way to disable file update notifications for certain folders? I have a few applications syncing data to Dropbox and they generate a lot of notification noise on my desktop clients. I still want these folders synced on my desktop PCs, but I don't want to receive file update notifications for them. Is this possible?

Hi All; thanks for sharing your thoughts on this!

 

While there is a way to mute notifications for specific folders if you're utilizing our APIs to do this programmatically (by using the mute parameter), there's no such option to do this on the desktop client's side where you can either snooze notifications or disable them completely. 

 

That said, note that this idea is going to need a bit more support before we can share your suggestion with the team so I've also updated the status here to encourage more users to back this idea up!

 

See you around the Community!

Hi DropBox,

 

Is there a way for other people (who can access my folder via a link) to receive an email notification when I upload a file? If not, this would be an excellent feature to add!  Its a feature that exists on YouTube.  Thanks for your help!

I agree. I was surprised it was not already a feature. Folder specific notifications.

It would be helpful if I can turn off the sync notification for some of my shared folders but not all of them.
