  1. Notification when a collaborator is removed

    We would love it if there were a way to get immediately notified if the “System Account” group were ever to be removed in the future.

  2. Add permissions to a folder without emailing everyone

    I'd like to be able to edit permissions directly in a folder without sending and receiving a ton of emails. I have not found a way to do this - even silent mode on the admin account does not allow for this. I think the notifications within Box are sufficient to let people know their folder permissions have changed and if I want to send an email it is easier if I just send a single email outside of Box to all affected.

  3. Collaborators request for status change- notification sent to owner

    Collaborators (non-owner) can request from the owner to have their status changed (i.e. owner, co-owner). A notification will then come to the current owner with approve or deny option. Currently I am having to ask via email, phone, in person for people to change this status and they don't always remember, but as a quick notification from the email they can approve or deny the request.

  4. Box should send a notification when the comment of a task is modified

    When a task is assigned, the assignee receives an email notification that a task has been assigned to them to complete. If the task assigner modifies the comment or text for the task, before the task is complete, the assignee is not notified. Many organization who must comply with 17a-4 FINRA compliance will need to capture these communications in Box. If a notification is not sent due to a modified task, the organization may be at risk of being out of compliance. A second notification should be sent for modified tasks.

    As a side note, notifications are sent for modified…

  5. real time notification

    It would be great if the Box app can display real-time notifications, similar to the Dropbox app. e.g. Tom worked on this file 20 seconds ago.

  6. notifications

    Using the web based system, the change to the display of notifications is significantly inferior to how it was before. I find the little box in the right corner really awkward to use. Previously you could navigate to a full page to see the notifications properly, please reinstate this functionality.

  7. View notification activity for items in the item properties details

    When viewing the properties of an item, there should be an option to view a history of notifications that were triggered for that item. This would allow people, such as an uploader, to verify that the intended collaborators are receiving the information about the upload, and take action if the notifications are not triggered.

    Potentially having an item saying something like "notification suppressed" for those who have the options disabled or if the folder settings are defined to disable notifications would be useful as well.

  8. Email notifications should include context

    We want Box generated email notifications to include context re: the folder-level where the user was added.

    For people like our boss who wants to know what is going on with a project without having to open a folder the information provided in the email notification will have to let him know what project (folder) it is associated with.

  9. Full path to the file in notification e-mails

    I'd like to ask for adding full path to the file (especialy first level) in notification e-mails to use Outlook rules. Starting this year everybody is a member of many BOX groups - less or more important. It would be very usefull to split the notifications into folders.

  11. Please make it easier to unsubscribe to product update emails (and please make sure the users actually want them before you start sending)

    Please make it easier to unsubscribe to product update emails (and please make sure the users actually want them before you start sending). I don't click 'unsubscribe' to any unsolicited emails. Instead a just block them. But I don't want to block emails from Box, because it may be important information about file uploads.

  12. Update removed the ability to view notifications on a single page. You have to scroll through them from the top tool bar. Please add back!

    The newest update removed the ability to view notifications (@mentions, etc) on a single page. You have to scroll through them from the top tool bar. This makes these difficult to managed properly. This needs to be added back ASAP!

  13. Alert admin when users is reaching their allocated storage cap

    When allocating a maximum storage amount to a given user it would be very useful to as an admin receive an email notification when the user is approaching their limit so that the admin can proactively increase the limit to decrease any disruption to their workflows.

  14. Add Ability to Suppress Collaboration Emails via API

    Hello

    At Catalytic, we are deeply integrated with Box and 100% api driven. Currently when creating folders and adding collaborators via API, we are UNABLE to suppress the Box email notification.

    This is causing confusions with our users as we are sending a Catalytic Branded email as well.

    Please help

  15. Notification of uploads from external users

    Ability to set Notification of uploads from external users only. Essentially, want to know when an external user has uploaded a file so we don't have to constantly check specific folder to see if client (ie external user) has uploaded a file.

  16. Change Sender name to "Box" or "Box Updates" instead of the user's name

    Collaboration Invite notification emails currently pull the inviting user’s Display Name from the Sender line and putting it in the From line. This means that while the email is coming from noreply@box.com, it still has the user’s name like the email has come from them directly.

    This can cause conflicts with mail servers that flag emails based on Display Name and email origin. It would be preferable to simple have all notification emails from Box leave Box or Box Updates in the Display Name field, rather than spoofing the acting user’s name.

  17. Add "Do not notify" to "Share this folder" dialog box

    When inviting users to collaborate in a folder, it would be helpful to add a check box to Not Notify the users.

    Larger folders can cause a lot of noise as users are added to a folder.
    There are times the collaborators may need to be removed, then re-added to a folder - this generates confusing emails.

  19. Add @mentions using enter key

    It would be nice to not have to put your cursor over the persons name and then hit enter after the name has shown. Rather, the name shows, hit enter, boom, done! No extra key strokes irritating my mouse arm!
