  1. 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.…

  2. Quit with the Box Mobile popups.

    I know it's there. I will get it if I want it. But interrupting my work every 10 minutes with a popup I need to close is about enough to make me cancel my subscription.

  3. Notification of task / mention on content from folder-view.

    Add an icon to a file (similar to the lock icon, or the shared link icon) when the associated user has an active task assigned to them or has been referenced in a comment but has not yet reviewed the document.

  4. 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.

  5. Ability to suppress the sending of email notifications of Collaboration invitation acceptances

    We would like to set up the following notification emails so that we do not receive notifications from users within the company,

    as they are confused with notifications from users of other companies.

    Therefore, we would like to see the ability to suppress the sending of email notifications per collaborator's email domain.

     ・Collaboration invitation acceptances

    下記の通知メールについては、他社のユーザーからの通知と紛れてしまうため、

    社内のユーザーからの通知を受け取らないような設定を行いたい。
    そのため、共有相手のメールドメイン単位で送信を抑制できるよう機能を追加して欲しい。

     ・コラボレーションの招待の承諾メール通知

  6. 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

  7. @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.

  9. Automatic notification of an added sub-folder

    I would like to be notified when a new sub-folder is added to an existing folder. It would be helpful if this could be set and be automatic as opposed to requiring a person to tell me. It seems a basic idea for BOX and was surprised it did not exist. Am requesting per this page.

  10. Transfersafe - Docs Signed Email Notification

    An option to have the signed email notification be an option on it's own. The amount of emails TS sends is a lot, but this would be a key email that some may want to keep an eye out for.

  11. Ability to turn off email notifications when a file is added to Box by email

    We are wanting to use the feature of being able to upload a file to Box by sending an email to the folder email address, but do not want to have the auto email responder saying that "upload was successful". We are wanting to use this feature for our clients but do not want to generate questions when they get a email from Box

  13. Exempt owners from disable notifications for all collaborators

    Folder owners should be able to exempt themselves when they disable all email notifications for all collaborator in a folder. I still want to receive notifications as owner. Otherwise, the only other option is to have all collaborators manually change their own settings, but this is rather unrealistic

  14. a better way to handle people wanting to collaborate with you - scams

    Once scammers have your email address you receive a TON of "user x added you to collaborate with" communications and it is very tedious to remove (decline) them, as you have to do it one by one, each taking multiple clicks. make a way for me to "select all" those who want to collaborate with me and decline them ALL at once. I'm so close to just deleting my box account as I get 2-3 notifications of people (scammers) wanting to collaborate with me and takes me a long time to decline them all.

  15. BOX Error when transferring files from Public to All other Folders

    The error message when transferring files from Public to All Other Folders is a little misleading. I would argue here that the system is asking for more of a confirmation before proceeding as opposed to reporting an error. The fact that this says “error occurred” and shows up in red doesn’t do a good job of conveying that you can do this if you click the Details button … just a question of whether you know what you are doing or not.

  16. Provide Notification when user is removed as a collaborator

    Right now, users do not get a notification when they are removed as a collaborator from a folder. This can cause confusion as this could be caused by a number reasons (ie deletions, inactive users), and results in admin assistance to dive in to what may have occurred. Users do get a notification when they are added to a folder, so they should also get one when they are removed from a folder as well

  17. File Upload Notification - Ability to set alerts to a specific managed user per folder

    File Upload can be a game changer for our company - with 1 major exception. Notifications in box seem to be all or nothing. Its overwhelming. Most of our team have them all turned off.

    We would like the ability to set a notification for file uploads - per folder - per user/s. Example: Folder named: Dr. Joe with 10 folders within it. One of the sub-folders is named "Uploads from Dr. Joe" A file request link is created and shared with the client for this sub-folder. Then, regardless of who owns the file, you can add certain managed user/s…

  19. Deliver Email Notification with the title including the actual folder on upload.

    Currently, people get email notification with the title including parent folders when uploading to multiple file even though people upload to child folder. The title makes them a bit confusion and lead to know them there is upload event on parent folder.

  20. File Request Notifications when the folder owner is the admin on silent mode

    We are aware that users can get notifications for uploads done via File Request Link - However, these notifications are based off the folder owner.

    Some enterprises have silent mode enabled on the admin, which suppresses the admin activity. If the admin is the owner of the folder, no notifications will be sent for these file request uploads.

    We would like to request a way or setting for the uploads done via file request link, to send a notification - regardless of silent mode.
