Reporting on Folder Options Changes

Is there an option to report changes in folder settings?


Specifically, someone in my group appears to have turned on 'Only Owners and Co-Owners can invite collaborators' on a folder and I'm trying to figure out who & when. Is there any reporting option that covers this action?

There is not currently a way to do this and to my knowledge it does not show up in the event stream. We have a request in to the Platform team to expose the changes of folder settings to the API. I would love to see how much traction there is for that. Could others chime in if they have a use case for tracking when folder settings are changed or to have the ability to set folder settings programmatically?

Yes we would have use for that as well.  Management specifically turned off commenting on a folder then someone turned it back on but we can not find out who.  Seeing folder setting activity would be a great value.
