Option to disable notifications for collaborator invites being accepted
Users can get spammed if they send folder collaboration invites to a group and the organization's default settings are to auto-accept collaboration invites. The option to disable notifications for accepting collaborator invites would be useful in this circumstance.
Thank you for your suggestion. We currently don’t have any plans to update the current email notifications flow, but will return to this suggestion later in the year. Please stay tuned!

Currently, any time a user invites someone to a folder, there is always a 'XYZ has accepted your invitation' email notification that's sent to the inviter. This is good, except for the fact that 'auto-accept all incoming collaboration invitations' is set to ON as the default for all Box users, meaning the vast majority of Box users never actually 'accept' invites, and Box accepts on their behalf. This causes the 'XYZ has accepted your invitation' email to go to the inviter even though the recipient hasn't actually done anything to accept the invite (which is deceiving to the inviter).
Thus, the value of the email notification sent to the inviter when the recipient has auto-accept turned ON is pretty minimal.
REQUEST: Enhance this UX overall to improve...
1. Decide whether we should or should not actually send a 'has accepted' email notification to the inviter when the recipient has auto-accept turned ON; perhaps an in-app notification would suffice?
2. Decide on content changes to the email sent to the inviter when the recipient has auto-accept turned ON (change the language to better explain that the user auto-accepted vs. actually clicking an 'accept' button)
