Notifications when files are uploaded in Shared Folder

Level 2
I have shared a folder with others. When I shared the folder the other person got a notification. However, when he uploaded the files into this shared folder, I don't receive any notification. I have checked all the boxes in notification page. Also, checked all the boxes in "Notifications" tab in "Preferences" on the desktop application. Please help!

You only get a notification on screen for a few seconds. If you are not at the screen that notification goes and isnt recoverable. 

So, you will need to ask the person to tell you they've done so

Thanks for the clarification, Mark! Appreciated!

Is there any way to receive an email, automatically, as soon as the files are uploaded? Are there any such settings available in DropBox?

Thanks again!
