Is there a setting I can turn on to notify me when changes are committed to a shared project file so I know I need to refresh?

Is there a way to turn on a notification that tells you when another person on your team has committed changes to the project file... I don't want to spend my day checking for a tiny yellow symbol all day but have no way of knowing if I need to refresh my working file otherwise and I have found that I consistently go hours before noticing it. This has caused file issues! Why not a little pop-up that informs me that someone has committed new changes and asks me if I want to refresh my file?

@Ethan R. @VWX USER 1I believe there is a Bell 🔔 indicator in the Project Sharing layers window that displays when layers are out of sync in your working drawing. 

Would be great if that were visible elsewhere outside the menu.

yes  - there is the indicator on the top left of the upper menu bar.

However - this is ONE instance where I actually want notifications (usually the bane of my existence).

It would be incredibly useful to have a notification of when someone opens a working file, checks out a layer, etc ...

This would really help i think 🙂
