  1. Invite users to file request

    We would like to inform our users that we have created a file request area for them. As soon as we create a file request we would like to be able to send a number of users a notification that they should upload their files there.

    Currently we have to manually copy the URL into an email to inform people, which breaks the flow. We would like the same functionality we see when creating shared links.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.…

  4. 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。

  5. 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.

  6. Get Notification on upload

    Currently owner of the folder alone will get notifications when a file is uploaded. We have a requirement for the uploader of the file to get notification as well so that it will serve as an acknowledgement for the upload

  7. notifications group

    Allow users to set per-group notification preferences. My work recently created several umbrella groups that contain 100's of people and these groups get added as collaborators to announcement type documents. These documents generate a lot of noise with comments, etc. Now I have to choose whether to get flooded with notifications or turn them off. I would prefer to disable notifications of just the documents associated with these big umbrella groups, not the notifications for documents to which my account has been specifically added as a collaborator.

  8. If users log in from "Microsoft Edge", send them a notification saying “Box login from "Microsoft Edge".

    Users receive the notification mail of login activity saying “Box login from "Windows Chrome" even though he login from “Microsoft Edge“. It should say "Box login from "Microsoft Edge"

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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

  13. Automatic email response for file request submitter

    Would like a feature whereby the person submitting files using Box File Request receives an automatic confirmation email with a customizable message. For example, after the submitter uploads files using the File Request web widget, that person gets a email to the effect of, "Thank you for contacting us. A team member will review your submittal and follow up within 24 hours." The person would be required to provide an email address but not required to have a Box account. Many of our external customers send us application materials using File Request, and then they contact us separately wanting to…

  14. @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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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
