Admins have the following events available in their team activity logs:
File operations (Advanced and Enterprise only)
Two factor authentication
If you are the admin of a team on an Advanced or Enterprise Dropbox Business plan, you can view all file-related actions on your team. File-level activity includes adding, editing, moving, and deleting files. You can use these events to investigate and troubleshoot problems, such as accidental file deletions, misplaced files or folders, or information security audits.

Why do I see "Dropbox Support" or "Dropbox System" listed on my Activity page?
On rare occasions, Dropbox can update your account on your behalf. For Dropbox Business admins, these listings appear on the Activity page in the Admin Console. Specifically, admins could see one of the following:
Dropbox Support — If you've contacted our support team, any action we take appears on the Activity page, attributed to "Dropbox Support." These actions can include inviting or removing team members, or inviting the original set of admins for your team. However, the Dropbox support team does not do anything on your account unless authorized to do so.
Dropbox System — On rare occasions, the Dropbox system must update your account to keep it current with new Dropbox products. The actions we take appear on the Activity page, attributed to "Dropbox System." These actions can include renaming or moving team folders, or ensuring your Dropbox Business account is up-to-date with new products. Otherwise, "Dropbox System" does not do anything on your account unless authorized to do so.
