Alert/notification on file change

Post by mattgroves » Tue Jan 14, 2014 4:39 am

Probably not a common requirement, but...

Subscribing to alerts for files/folders such that when changed/deleted (or in the case of a folder, new content added) an email alert is triggered.

I agree this would be a great help for administering shares

I know this is resurrecting an old thread, but I just had user ask for this same functionality and I came up with fairly simple solution.
This is for completely non sensitive information, just watching the upload folder in an FTP site to see when someone uploaded something new. Very little usage, just a few people working on a project and want to know when someone else has uploaded a new file.
I created a share link to the folder.
Then used a free website monitor like www.changedetect.com to watch the share link.
