Re: Turning off shared folder notifications


Hey there @Amandakatzarchi - how are you today?

This is setting that needs to be changed on their end as this is an account specific setting and not a shared folder's configuration.

In order to stop receiving email notifications, they will need to unsubscribe from notifications from Dropbox. They can update their notifications' settings, following these steps:

  1. Sign in to
  2. Click on your name or avatar at the top of the page
  3. Click on ‘Settings’
  4. Scroll down to ‘Preferences’
  5. Select the notifications you would like to receive by checking/unchecking the square next to each notification type.

If there's anything else you'd like to ask, don't hesitate to reach out; we're always a post away Amanda!
