Notification about adding of new files — ??

Notification about adding of new files — ??

We have a shared folder in which my colleagues upload files. How to set up the notification message to me about adding of new files in this folder? Bothered to come into the application and manually to check some nested folders!


It is possible to make such notification in the application on the Android OS?

You will get a pop up on screen for a few seconds when it happens. 

You can also subscribe to a RSS feed.

You can't, however, get push notifications or emails.

Mark Mc, can you give the detailed instruction, where and how to make settings for receiving "a pop up on screen" for this folder?
Also, where and how "subscribe to a RSS feed" for the specific folder?

Please.

On computers using the desktop client, Dropbox will automatically pop up a notification when that client syncs the file to that computer.

Android users cannot get notifications.
