"Follow" a Folder

"Follow" a Folder

Helpful | Level 7

We have active Team (and non team) folders that we use to compile necessary paperwork. Is there way to 'follow' a folder so that members of the folder would be notified of any activity (ie. the adding of docuemtns, the signing of documents)?

Hey @DLI_John, thanks for reaching out to us - it's good to hear from you again! 

 

Users can turn of desktop and email notifications, although there isn't a certain option for them to enable where they are notified for specific activity in their shared/team folders.  

 

However, there are a couple of threads you can check out our Share an idea section that might interest you, such as this thread and this one.

 

There, you can upvote and comment on these requests or, if they don't exactly apply to what you'd like to have in the future, you can go ahead and create your own thread. 

 

I hope this helps, but letme know if you have any other questions. Cheers!
