  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Notification Alerts

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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.…

  15. 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。

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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"
