I just read your blog while looking for answers, and thought I’d ask you because I don’t know if I’ll get more than an automated answer from Dropbox.
I sent someone, via Twitter direct message, a link to a folder on Dropbox. It’s something I wanted this person to read. It is not file-sharing, nor public folder, just one of these links you can make on Dropbox so that anyone without a Dropbox account is able to access that one file.
Is there any way I can find out if this person accessed the folder by clicking the link? Would I have received an email notification if they had?
Do Dropbox Events show us anything other than changes, that is, only when changes have been made to a file, not if they were simply accessed via an url?
If this would appear in my events log, or if I was supposed to have received an email when they accessed file, then I have to assume they never looked at it. But if events and notifications are only when someone I am sharing with in the system does anything in the file, then the system will not tell me if the file was accessed or not via url by someone w/o Dropbox.
I hope my question wasn’t too confusing, and please know I really appreciate your attention.
