  1. 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…

  2. We have 700+ users. There should be an easy way that an admin or co-admin can notify everyone.

    Example: say we need to do some maintenance and would like to notify all of our users. Right now I was told the only way to do this is to email everyone or share a link with everyone. With over 700+ users that would be a LOT of emailing or sharing. Can you please create a way we can send out a notification to our whole enterprise?

  3. Box Updates Daily Report

    The idea is, instead of getting a flood of emails or notifications throughout the day to rather get a summary of everything that was changed in the day or "A Daily Report." This could also be a weekly report for users who do not want updates throughout the week flooding the email.

    This makes it so all the notifications can still be received by each individual without causing issues of too many emails.

  4. Deliver Email Notification with the title including the actual folder on upload.

    Currently, people get email notification with the title including parent folders when uploading to multiple file even though people upload to child folder. The title makes them a bit confusion and lead to know them there is upload event on parent folder.

  5. Upload Completion Notification

    I love how I am notified when a set of files are uploaded into a specific folder but I am having one very key issue. I will receive the notification upon upload, but many times because it is 10+ large images, the images are not done uploading. I will review the folder but be unaware that the Upload is not complete. I may see 5 images with 5 still uploading.

    Is there a way Box could show us of upload progress? OR possibly send a second notification when the upload is complete?

  6. File Request Notifications when the folder owner is the admin on silent mode

    We are aware that users can get notifications for uploads done via File Request Link - However, these notifications are based off the folder owner.

    Some enterprises have silent mode enabled on the admin, which suppresses the admin activity. If the admin is the owner of the folder, no notifications will be sent for these file request uploads.

    We would like to request a way or setting for the uploads done via file request link, to send a notification - regardless of silent mode.

  7. Don't use the green info boxes to hide the most likely place I want to click next!

    Almost all actions I want to take on a file or folder run along the top of the screen. It is incredibly frustrating that whenever I take an action the green 'confirmation of action just taken' box pops up at the top of the screen in exactly the place I want to take my next action.

    Strongly suggest you move the info to the bottom of the screen so it doesn't obscure the next action I want to take.

    And please stop asking me to refresh my screen - it auto-refreshes in a matter of miliseconds so this is a…

  8. Download notification when opening a file

    Currently. Download notification. Opening a file through Drive, which downloads the file on demand, and does not trigger this notification. For example, user A download a file through Drive, Folder owner B doesn't receive download notification although the folderset download notification in Folder settings. The download event should trigger sending notification. Expected Behavior: Opening a file through Drive, which downloads the file on demand, and it triggers this notification. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Folder Owner set download notification by selecting "Override default settings for this folder and all subfolders" 2. Opening a file through Drive, which downloads the file on…

  9. Allow users to REPLY TO folder invitations

    When I invite a user to a folder, they receive an email.

    Today the email subject is:
    My Name has invited you to work together in "Folder Name"
    The From in the email is:
    My email address on behalf of My name <noreply@box.com>

    It would be extremely helpful for users to be able to reply directly to the invitation back to me. Instead, the users get an NDR.

    We work with several other providers, and their notifications have the reply to: set as the user sending it.

  11. Alarm with due date in documents.

    It would be very nice you can set a revalidation date to some documents that need to be reviewed in selected period. For example , documents that need to be validated each year. It would be nice if we can flag a date in the document , and receive an alert advicing that the document need to be reviewed. This alarm can be used for everything (for example for deletion of document). Thanks!

  13. 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.

  14. Hide annoying Move Items security warning popup message

    Ability to suppress user popup security notification that warns about moving file will make content available to anyone with the link and to collaborators outside of your company.


    Move Items

    This content will be available to anyone with the link and to collaborators outside of your company.

    You have chosen to move the selected item to the folder 'folder-name'. This folder has collaborators outside of your company and has a public shared link enabled. Do you want to continue?

  16. Enable shared link expiration notifications for user that enabled the shared link

    For a closed folder structure, where the primary admin owns all content, Box should give the ability to 1) disable shared link expiration notifications for folder owners and 2) enable them specifically for the users that created the shared link to begin with.

    Even if the former will not be changed, the latter behavior would be important for a closed folder structure.

  19. Notification "new version" upload

    Notify the folder group when a new version is uploaded.
    Currently only when the first version is uploaded, a notification is sent. If version 2 is uploaded, the folder group does not get a notification.

  20. Request to suppress collaborator invitation emails.

    When needing to invite a single user into multiple files and subfolders within a given folder, but not into all files in that specific folder, we'd like to see a way to suppress the email notifications that are automatically sent to that user each time the collaborator invitation is sent.

    Currently there is no way to choose to not have the email notifications go out and then it inundates the user's inbox.
