  1. Folder settings Notification mail

    Currently, there are two ways to set up email notifications: from [Account Settings] and [Folder Settings].
    The name "Folder Settings" may be misleading.
    The reason for this is that the name [Folder Settings] seems to affect users who are invited to the folder as collaborators.
    Therefore, please add a note to [Folder Settings] that the scope of the effect is only the user who made the setting, and that the effect is not reflected on users who are collaborating on the folder.


    現在メールによる通知設定は、[アカウント設定]からと[フォルダ設定]があります。
    この[フォルダ設定]ですが、とても誤解を受ける名称をしているかと存じます。
    理由として、[フォルダ設定]とあるため、フォルダにコラボレーターとして招待されているユーザーに影響があるように見受けられるためです。
    そのため、この[フォルダ設定]には影響範囲は設定を行ったユーザーのみであることと、フォルダにコラボレーションされているユーザーには反映されない旨を注釈として記載してください。

  5. Ability to manage all notifications settings at the user level

    Our team would love to only receive Box notifications via Teams.

    Currently, you cannot turn off some notifications to go to your email, like when someone tags you in a comment.

    We would like the ability to disable this manually. Some users would like to have both options.

  6. Ability to disable/modify admins receiving ALL collaboration invite notifications

    Currently every time someone in our organization shares a file or folder I get an email notification, it gets obnoxious at at times. It seems silly I can't control these notifications. The following need to be able to be turned off,

    • Collaboration invitations
    • Collaboration invitation acceptances

    In general more control over notifications is ideal, I can't imagine why this would be so difficult. Thank you.

  7. Empty Folder Notification

    Someway to turn on notification based on folder or another relay.
    Where specific folders cannot be empty, and after a week or so it is empty, we get a notification and alert once a month about it.

  8. Turn off notifications

    Turn off notifications for the owner of the account on specific tasks not pertaining to this individual. The account owner is receiving notifications for everyone else's tasks and assignments.

  9. I am unable to email collaborators because there are more than 500 collaborators in the folder.

    Need an option to be able to email collaborators in bulk, regardless of the number. The 500 limit is now forcing me to email collaborators individually.

  10. Add sender's email address to the "Mail All" collaborators functionality.

    Currently when a notification is sent via email through "Mail All" collaborators function, it does not include an email to the person who created the notification. It would be beneficial to add the sender's email address to this notification process for documentation purposes and validation. When the creator does not receive the email, they are reliant on other parties to forward the notification, which is not efficient.

  11. Automatic email response for file request submitter

    Would like a feature whereby the person submitting files using Box File Request receives an automatic confirmation email with a customizable message. For example, after the submitter uploads files using the File Request web widget, that person gets a email to the effect of, "Thank you for contacting us. A team member will review your submittal and follow up within 24 hours." The person would be required to provide an email address but not required to have a Box account. Many of our external customers send us application materials using File Request, and then they contact us separately wanting to…

  12. Turn off Collaborator email notifications on Version updates

    Many of our collaborators have complained that they don't need to receive the numerous email updates every time minor document versions/revisions occur. Administrators and Owners of a Folder should be able to turn User Alerts both On and Off, when they want to alert recipients that an item's revisions are significant. It is unrealistic and impractical to tell our Executives that they personally have to drill down in their settings and turn off email notifications as an end user on their own device - that should be an Admin Console function.

    Admins and Owners should be able to adjust the…

  13. Auto-notify collaborators when a file is uploaded to a folder

    The folder owner should be able to create an email notification for all subscribers to the folder to receive a notification when a new file is uploaded to Box.

    The email would be sent to the user's email on file for that Box folder. The user would not have to update his/her own settings. The folder owner would set notifications, and the user would have to turn them off if too frequent.

    The scenario is that a shared Box folder with <10 users. The users are generally infrequent users of Box, so do not proactively check on the folder frequently.…

  14. Don't notify user when storage is only 70% full

    Got this notification today "Yikes, your storage is almost full. Get unlimited storage and advanced business tools to securely safeguard all your personal data."
    Went to my account details and saw I'm only 31Gb out of 50gb.
    A bit dramatic!

  15. Invite users to file request

    We would like to inform our users that we have created a file request area for them. As soon as we create a file request we would like to be able to send a number of users a notification that they should upload their files there.

    Currently we have to manually copy the URL into an email to inform people, which breaks the flow. We would like the same functionality we see when creating shared links.

  16. Notification to BOX Folder Co-Owner(s) when Owner has been removed/deleted

    The current behavior in BOX when a Folder owner is removed / deleted from the system is the Folder is no longer available.
    The process, in my experience, to recover the folder is not obvious, quick nor easy.
    I propose the BOX system notify all Folder Co-owners of a pending Folder removal / deletion and allow 2 weeks for the co-owner(s) to determine whether the Folder should be removed from BOX and if the decision is to keep the Folder active to determine the new Owner as well.

  17. Collaborator invitation "accepted" email notification

    Currently the default setting Account Settings > Sharing > Collaborating on Content is checked to automatically accept incoming collaboration invitations. I would like to request this setting be off by default as we've had many users ask why they receive an email immediately after inviting a collaborator and later found out that the person had never accepted the invite.

    It would also be helpful if there was a Date Accepted column added to the Collaborators page that allows you to see when the collaborator accepted the invite. Currently there is only a Date Added column.

    Thank you

  18. conflicts

    Notification when a file conflict occurs

    Currently, there are times when file conflicts occur and go unnoticed.
    If there is a function to notify the user who uploaded the file by e-mail when a file conflict occurs, the conflict can be checked immediately, and furthermore, confusion by users and accidents during file sharing can be prevented.

    ファイル競合が発生した場合の通知について

    現状、ファイル競合が発生しても気付かない場合がある。
    ファイル競合が発生した場合に、アップロードしたユーザーにメール通知する機能があれば、即座に競合を確認でき、さらにユーザーによる混乱やファイル共有時の事故を防げます。

  20. @mentions Center

    I think it would be great to have something similar to the Box Task Center but with mentions. Currently, you can only see them from the little bell icon and scrolling, but once you click on one the dropdown disappears. If it could route you to a page where you could easily manage the mentions received, that would be most helpful. I think they used to have that functionality, but it was removed a while back.
