Do the colors of user initials mean anything?

Helpful | Level 6

Does a shared user with a grey circle on dropbox.com when viewing a document mean anything (i.e. user has deleted file), or are they randomly assigned?

Re: Do the colors of user initials mean anything?

Hello there @dominichare - how are you today?

From what I understand you're referring to the colored avatars of people that you share files or folders with - right?

When the color is vivid and not greyed out, it means that the user is previewing the file at the moment while when it's greyed out it means that they're not currently (pre)viewing the file - not that they have deleted a file or anything similar. 

You can learn more about this here:

I hope this clears things up Dominic. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
