When you want to see a list of what's happening on your site, including assets that have been recently uploaded or downloaded, check out the activity feed on the Dashboard. In addition to uploading and downloading, new, sharing, and commenting activity is also listed. The most recent activity displays first in each feed, and activity from all users on the site displays. Click the name of each activity to see details specific to the activity.



The activity feed only displays activity for assets you have permission to view. Your name will be listed next to actions you've taken in the activity feed, but other users who've performed the same actions will not be named.


You won't see the activity feed for a feature that isn't enabled on your site.


To see a larger preview of an asset in the activity feed, click the thumbnail image. Click the filename to go to the Asset Details page. For comments activity, click the comment to see it on the Asset Details page.


The activity feed cannot be disabled or deleted from the Dashboard.


New activity feed

All recent activity, including batch activity like batch uploads, displays in the New feed. The activity that displays in the New feed is an aggregate of activity from the other feeds.


The New activity feed will report when up to 500 assets have been uploaded.


Uploads feed

Single and batch uploads display in the Uploads feed. For uploads of a single asset, you'll see a preview of the asset, the asset's filename, and a timestamp of when the upload occurred.
