To see the most recent files other FileRun users performed actions on, access the “Activity” tab by clicking on the “View Details” button on the top right corner of the user interface.

The notifications can be made real-time, by enabling integration:

  1. Signup for a free Pusher API account at
  2. Access the FileRun control panel as superuser and go to the Third party services section.
  3. Enable the main checkbox and configure the App ID, Key and Secret that you get from your account.

The users will be notified in real-time about files that have been uploaded, files that have been downloaded, previewed, or commented on by other users.

Each user can enable/disable the sound notifications from their “Account settings” panel. The preference persists between browser sessions, so the user will not have to use the toggle every time he is accessing FileRun. The sound is disabled by default.

The sound played on notification can be customized by replacing the two files “sounds/new.mp3” and “sounds/new.ogg”.

The users will be notified only about actions performed inside their own home folder. They will not be notified about actions performed in folders that are shared to them by other users.

This feature is connected to the “file-based activity logs” feature. Disabling the user's “User can access the files' activity logs” permission, will disable this feature as well.
