View Full Version : Lion, dropbox & smart folders - not so smart?

Hi there
My office uses DropBox for teams - excellent setup, but there are literally thousands of folders, sub-folders and files - approximately 50 of us use this dropbox. It works beautifully, but I believe I've discovered a limitation with Lion's smart folders...

I generally access only a few of the sub-folders & their contents on dropbox, and would love to have a smart folder that brings up recently changed items from just these sub-folders.

It seems that I can't filter a folder for documents edited only by me though - I get *everyone's* recently edited docs, which is worse than navigating through the folder structures - there are a few hundred per day.

Does anybody know of a way to make SmartFolders only look for items I've edited, or perhaps narrow the search to only a couple of sub-folders?

Thanks!
