  1. View notifications in separate webpage

    It would be great if we can view all notifications in one webpage the same as you can do with tasks instead of just a drop down window.

  2. Use customer's own email gateway to send email notifications

    Many customers in regulated industries do NOT like the fact that email notifications from Box come from the Box Service with a noreply@box.com email address. The emails that Box sends on the user behalf do not go through a customer's email security or e-discovery system thus it creates problems in regulated environment that need to capture ALL communications between internal users and external customers. Box needs to have a configuration where a customer can configure their own SMTP gateway that Box can use to send email notifications with the proper TO and FROM data so they can better document and…

  3. Out of office notice

    Hi,
    it would be nice if we received messages about out of office notes or e-mail errors (wrong address) for invitations and, for example, workflows. At the moment I don't know if someone just didn't respond or didn't receive the invitation / task.
    Best regards

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Send a notification regarding document lock/unlock timing

    For teams that are actively working on a single document, the lock/unlock feature is nice to prevent version control issues. However, it would be nice to have additional notifications are this feature, namely:

    • "Notify me when this file is unlocked"
    • "Warn me [the person who locked the file] when the file lock is about to expire"
    • "Warn me [the person who locked the file] if I've left the file locked AND inactive for more than X minutes"

    Etc.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Notification Alerts

    It would be so useful to have a chime or ding when I get Box notifications!

  12. 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.

  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. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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

  19. @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.

  20. 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。
