  1. Update removed the ability to view notifications on a single page. You have to scroll through them from the top tool bar. Please add back!

    The newest update removed the ability to view notifications (@mentions, etc) on a single page. You have to scroll through them from the top tool bar. This makes these difficult to managed properly. This needs to be added back ASAP!

  3. Action taken in Box to trigger notification to other programs

    Outcomes that call out to other systems. E.g.: our marketing team would want a Slack notification every time something gets uploaded to their “review” Box folder and other similar things.

  4. Add @mentions using enter key

    It would be nice to not have to put your cursor over the persons name and then hit enter after the name has shown. Rather, the name shows, hit enter, boom, done! No extra key strokes irritating my mouse arm!

  6. Enable Fast Push Notifications for Metadata Changes.

    Enable Fast Push Notifications for Metadata Changes.

    Nationwide is a platform customer who is customizing Box’s UI elements to support a new version of their Claim Center application. One of their usecases requires nearly instantaneous notification for metadata updates. The Event Stream is not an appropriate source because of the delay associated in parsing.

    This functionality would 100% be used by Nationwide.

  9. Forward Antivirus Protection notifications to specific definable email addresses

    As of now, only Site Admin and Content Owners will receive notifications from the Box Antivirus protection feature. We would like the ability to send those notifications to definable addresses within our organization. This will ensure our Security Team gets all the proper notifications and not just the Site Admin and Content Owner.

    The work around at the moment is to have the Site Owner setup forwarding Rules in their e-mail application.

  13. folder notification

    Notifications about folder activity for emails who are not collaborators in the folder.

    Use case: Our end users are not allowed to access cloud data sites on our corporate network per compliance regulations thus them not being added as a collaborators. I sync the folders down to our file servers and share them creating a two-way data sync between our end users and their clients who use the website. I’ve just been asked to supply alerts when a client performs activities in shared folders but can’t do so directly because I can’t add specific email addresses to the alerts.

    My customer request to translate to Japanese the confirm email, especialy "Please confrm the email address change for your Box account".

  16. Multiple Pages for Filtered Notifications

    In the Web App under Notifications the filtered views (anything other than All Messages) is limited to 50 items, and you do not have the option to go to the next page.

    For example our HR department set Tasks for each employee to review their Job Description. They were hoping to be able to do away with using a spreadsheet to track emails by seeing who was left under their Sent Tasks. But they are still using the spreadsheet and manual reminders since they weren't able to access more than 50 assigned tasks to send reminder emails.

  18. Ability to disable "user added another user to your folder as a collaborator" email notifications.

    We've built an app that centers around adding users to folders owned by a service account. We had over 150k notifications in a single day, accounting for 80% of their email traffic to a single inbox for a brief period. We've have added a rule to block these incoming emails, but we are not satisfied with this solution and urgently request the ability to turn these off.

  20. Ability for Reply to Box Shared Link Emails to be sent directly to sender

    When using the Box's Email Shared Link, there is no bounce back email or there is no way to track or reply to the email (the address has the name of the sender with a Box no reply email address).

    Request: Have email of the sender instead of the no reply box email address
