How can we improve sharing and collaboration in OneDrive across all experiences??

Add a notification possibility for download links

I'm using OneDrive a lot for giving customers a download link for making files available
I'm able to configure an expiration date but it would be great to have a notification by email
when the file is downloaded so I can remove it.

    I agree and have been asking about this for a while now, we need actions such as when someone opens/views or downloads a file to show in the activity log at minimum. Right now I only see activity if a file is added/created or edited.

    This is basic stuff we expect and get from other providers of document sharing platforms. Please please take a look at adding this feature ASAP, thinking about it for TWO years is not good.

    Notification will have the user as well, especially external, providing their email address.

    Makes no sense this feature is not there. Seems like a very simple thing to implement.
