The ability for several people to add, edit, and remove files within the same folder is a great way to work with different teams. But how do you keep track of who changes what? Your Dropbox desktop notifications can give you that info in real time, helping you make the most of your collaborative efforts.
To stay aware of changes made in your Dropbox, you can turn on desktop notifications. If you use an iOS device, you can also enable push notifications.
Turn on desktop notifications
- The desktop application can display notifications on your computer when changes are detected in your Dropbox. You can choose which notifications you'll receive:
- Click the 'Dropbox' icon from your menu bar (Mac) or system tray (Win/Linux).
- Click the gear icon and select 'Preferences...' from the menu.
- Check or uncheck the boxes under 'Notify me about' to choose which notifications you'll receive.
