Can I view exclusively new files from the dropbox icon

Level 3

After the last update, I see that everytime I click on the dropbox taskbar icon from my desktop pc it shows every file that has been recently opened.

I'd much rather prefer the way it used to be, where it showed only new files that were saved on dropbox. I don't see any new option to set it as such though, so is it possible?

Hey there @SkullKid - how are you today?

At first, could you forward me a screenshot of this so I can get a better view of the matter at hand?

In addition, I wanted to thank you for this feedback and as we're always looking for user input when creating the next version of the Dropbox app, I'll make sure your comments are passed along to our dev team for consideration. 

I'll wait for your screenshot in the meantime to see if there's a way to achieve what you wanted in the first place. Thank you!

Re: Can I view exclusively new files from the dropbox icon

Level 3

A screenshoot can't really show it clearly - the problem is that the files showed chronologically when I open the dropbox taskbar icon are now all the files I have opened, instead of the files I've recently added to my dropbox folder. I don't need the files I have recently opened to show up there, and they push back and hide the files added. I don't also want multiple files to be stashed as they are now - where you need to press the arrow (showed in the screenshot) to be all shown.

 

I pretty much preferred how it previously worked in every way, but after the update I don't see new options to customize this or change the way it operates. Is there a way to set this to only show newly added files? Or even to not stash files together?

Thanks for the additional information @SkullKid - most appreciated.

I've just sent you a brief message to your Dropbox associated email address so we can have a further look into this with all of my tools available.

At your earliest convenience, take a look at your inbox and we'll take it from there.

I would much prefer how it worked before the update as well.

I only want to be shown which files have newly been added or modifed. Not which files have recently been opened.

Is there any setting to change this back?

I'm sorry to be the bad news bearer here but this won't be possible at the time being @kaapang.

I appreciate you taking the time to submit your feedback though so I wil be passing your comments on to the team for their consideration. 

Let me know if you need anything else!
