Can we have viewer info for shared folders?

I sometimes share one or more files with others by providing them with a temporary Dropbox Folder link. Generally I do this to avoid sending oversized files by email. Usually, after the person has seen or downloaded the files, I would like to delete the folder to avoid clutter and save space. It would be very helpful if Dropbox showed me when the folder was viewed and by whom. That way I would know when I can delete it without interfering with our purpose.

Thanks.

That's already possible, if you have a Dropbox Business account (Advanced, Enterprise or Educational) or a Dropbox Professional account.

 

 

For share links, you'll always see the user listed as Guest. Dropbox doesn't know who's viewing a share link as a link can be given to anyone, the link is the same for everyone and anyone with the link can access it, no Dropbox account required.
