Set up alerts
With alerts, admins can monitor security concerns in real-time and avoid data vulnerabilities. Visit the following links for a full overview on how to set up alerts:
File Shared Externally alert
The File Shared Externally and Folder Shared Externally alerts notify you when any Dropbox file or folder is shared directly with a user outside of your Dropbox team. Admins can also scan externally shared files for sensitive content. Learn how to set up the Files Shared Externally alert.
Sensitive Data Scanned alert
The Sensitive Data Scanned alert notifies you when your domain’s files contain sensitive data and can trigger an automated remediation workflow. Learn how to set up the Sensitive Data Scanned alert.
Build automated workflows
Workflows allow admins to automate actions across a Dropbox team account using “if, then” logic. In the Workflow Manager, admins can view and control all workflows in one place. Visit the following links for a full overview on how to build workflows:

Note: The Account Capture or All Users Capture feature is only available to Dropbox Enterprise teams.
Onboard and offboard employees
Onboarding workflows can automatically add new team members to all required groups and folders.
