I am using a shared folder in dropbox. I need to know who adds which file to the dropbox folder. Is there a way to find this out?

One way to find this information is by looking through the different versions of the file. You can look at a relevant help page of the Dropbox service. Here is an exerp that will get you going:

  1. Sign in to the Dropbox website
  2. Right-click on the file in the file browser and select Previous versions in the pop-up menu

It's as simple as that. You'll see all the versions and who's been changing it.

You probably need to have that feature enabled, though.


Another way you could find out is by using the Event tab from the Dropbox website. You can use the drop-down-list at the top of the page to select the desired shared folder.

Thanks to the answer here for the pointer.

I prefer Event tab. It shows the user's name beside his activity.
