  1. Notifications of login activity sent by email should state the timezone used

    Emails with login activity sent by Box are not in the local time and the actual timezone is not stated. I have been advised by Box these notifications are in Pacific Time. It would be useful if timezones could be identified in emails sent by Box - when trying to determine if there have been illegitimate logins, knowing the correct time is critical.

  2. Turn off Notifications that links are expiring.

    Add ability to turn off Notifications that links are expiring. My IN BOX is flooded with these and it's annoying to have to delete them dail

  3. Need error log print or output option

    My Box context menu says "Error updating 28 items." I look at the errors, figure out the problem, and want to send the file list to the person who is causing the problem. Oh wait, there's no way to do that. I can't capture the text displayed, I can't forward it, I can't do anything.

    Please add a "print log" function or permit the user to somehow get info out of the display window. I need to send the details to another person.

    Thank you.

  4. Disable integration email notification

    ForeScout currently has an integration setup with DocuSign to upload a copy of any completed PDFs to Box. When this occurs, we receive an email from DocuSign with the PDF attachment and also the below email from Box. This is the Docusign to Box integration. The email from Box does not provide detail around where the file was saved or a link to access it. Given that we have a rather high volume of these uploads, I was wondering if there was a way to disable email notifications like this.

  5. Detailed Email Notifications

    Hi Team,

    It would be a lot better if we can receive an email notification that is more detailed unlike on what we usually received. Hopefully, You can add more information on the action that was taken that triggered that email notification.

    For example:

    Can you add more details for folders and the user what took the action on those folders.

  6. Your email reminders to setup 2FA are too aggressive

    Over the course of 6 hours (during the night), I received 5 emails asking me to 'Set up 2 Factor Authentication'. This is quite aggressive.

  7. update information

    There is no information from box system when someone upload files on the box.
    I have been able to receive the information when I started to use this system, but suddenly, it can not work.

    Of course, I checked on the setting "When the files update, receive email".

  8. notification email

    Notification Email - End user self-service

    I would like to allow our managed users to update their own "Notification Email" setting. Right now it requires Admin/co-admin level access to make this change to an account.

    At least for our organization this is a user account option that we would like to delegate to the end users and allow them to edit the value in their profile.

    I realize that some organizations may want more control so ideally there would be an enterprise setting that determined whether end users can update the Notification emails value.

  9. Collaborators request for status change- notification sent to owner

    Collaborators (non-owner) can request from the owner to have their status changed (i.e. owner, co-owner). A notification will then come to the current owner with approve or deny option. Currently I am having to ask via email, phone, in person for people to change this status and they don't always remember, but as a quick notification from the email they can approve or deny the request.

  10. Box should send a notification when the comment of a task is modified

    When a task is assigned, the assignee receives an email notification that a task has been assigned to them to complete. If the task assigner modifies the comment or text for the task, before the task is complete, the assignee is not notified. Many organization who must comply with 17a-4 FINRA compliance will need to capture these communications in Box. If a notification is not sent due to a modified task, the organization may be at risk of being out of compliance. A second notification should be sent for modified tasks.

    As a side note, notifications are sent for modified…

  11. notifications

    Using the web based system, the change to the display of notifications is significantly inferior to how it was before. I find the little box in the right corner really awkward to use. Previously you could navigate to a full page to see the notifications properly, please reinstate this functionality.

  12. Email notifications should include context

    We want Box generated email notifications to include context re: the folder-level where the user was added.

    For people like our boss who wants to know what is going on with a project without having to open a folder the information provided in the email notification will have to let him know what project (folder) it is associated with.

  13. Please make it easier to unsubscribe to product update emails (and please make sure the users actually want them before you start sending)

    Please make it easier to unsubscribe to product update emails (and please make sure the users actually want them before you start sending). I don't click 'unsubscribe' to any unsolicited emails. Instead a just block them. But I don't want to block emails from Box, because it may be important information about file uploads.

  14. 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!

  16. Make all notifications visible at-a-glance again. This functionality was just removed.

    As of today, employees in our company are noticing that the full Notifications page is no longer available in Box Web, and notifications have been moved to a small drop-down menu in the corner. A chat with a member of Box support confirmed that this is a product-wide change.

    The problem with this drop-down menu is that comments cannot be read in full anymore, as they are being truncated to fit in the small pane.

    Can either 1) the full Notifications page be made available again for users/organizations who wish to keep it, or 2) the new drop-down menu have…

  17. 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.

  18. Disable shared link expiration notifications

    This unstoppable auto-notification [for shared link expiration], specifically, is the worst. While we are a fairly small firm, we use Box pretty extensively and we use shared links pretty extensively. All of our shared links automatically expire. As a result, my inbox is continuously inundated with this notification (we’re talking nearly 100, each day). I don’t have the time to look at each and review them. I don’t know if anyone could ever actually have the time to review them and make any kind of meaningful decision or conclusion based on, what is effectively, spam. With no way to stop…

    There should be a Box Dashboard that people stay on all day. Emailed @mentions are not effective

  20. Turn off notification that people outside the organization can view a file when copied

    When I copy a file, I get a pop up saying people outside my organization can see it. I don't need to get that pop-up.
