Can not get notifications for new files in shared folders

Some or all of the below information will be requested if it isn't supplied; for fastest response please provide as much as you can :heart:


Nextcloud version ( 16.0.1):
Operating system and version ( Ubuntu 18.04):
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.29): 
PHP version ( 7.2):

The issue you are facing:

No notifications about new files in shared folders
This issue is the same for two users on a local server as for users to two different servers using federation. I would like to use shared folders between federated servers as it is a bit cumbersome to share every file using the complete address (username@https://servername/nextcloud)

Is this the first time you've seen this error? (N):

Steps to replicate it:

To replicate (local server):

1. User A creates a folder and shares it with user B.
2. User B gets a notification about a share, accepts and gets the folder visible.
3. User A drops a file in the shared folder.
4. User B gets no notification, and the file does not show until manually refreshing (tested with Firefox and Chrome)

Wanted behaviour: User B gets a notification about a new file appearing in the shared folder.

To replicate with federation is basically the same, except sharing the folder to another server. I have tested with HTTP and HTTPS, no difference.
