Opening a link or adding files to a Dropbox account is only reported in a full activity report. An event is recorded whether a team member or a non-team user opens the link or adds it to their Dropbox.

The sharing log doesn't record whether a user leaves or adds back to a shared folder , because that user still has access to the folder and can add it back at any time.

The analytics dashboard lets you view your team's sharing activity for a specific time period. Total usage statistics, such as B. the number of shared links and the number of active shared folders are displayed. Learn more about the analytics dashboard

View and manage external shares

You can see what files, folders, and sharing links are shared with people outside of your team. You can also view the following release details:

  • Shared content - format, size and path
  • Security - access level and details of password protection and expiration
  • Sharing – Who shared content, when, and with whom
  • Activity - Whether content was viewed or edited

You can view this information by downloading a report or by visiting the external releases page. You can also manage access to these files and folders through a dedicated external sharing page.

Note: For both the special page and the report: 

  • They only include files and folders that have been directly shared. if e.g. For example, if a folder is shared, the folder is included but not the files within. 
  • They include files and folders that a team member has created a sharing link for.
  • They're only available to teams with fewer than five million external shares.
  • They don't include Dropbox Paper docs.

Download a report on external shares

You can click Generate report to generate an external shares report from the external shares page and analytics dashboard . The report contains all of the team's data on external releases and cannot be filtered.

View, filter and manage external shares

You have access to a dedicated external sharing page in the management console. There they can view, filter and manage externally shared files and folders.

Note: Dropbox tries to keep this page as up-to-date as possible. The report always contains the most up-to-date information.

  1. Sign in to as an admin .
  2. Click  Management Console in the left sidebar .
  3. Click Security in the left sidebar .
  4. Click External Sharing .

You can search and filter externally shared files using details such as file name, time shared, who shared it, and file format.

  2. Hover over the name of the file or folder you want to manage.
  3. Click the ellipsis (...).
  4. Click Manage Access .

If the file or folder is in a team folder, the sharing window appears. If the file or folder isn't in a team folder, you'll see the option to sign in as a team member . Once you've opened the sharing window for the file or folder, you can manage access to it the same way you normally manage access to any shared file or folder in Dropbox .
