  1. Make all notifications visible at-a-glance again. This functionality was just removed.

    As of today, employees in our company are noticing that the full Notifications page is no longer available in Box Web, and notifications have been moved to a small drop-down menu in the corner. A chat with a member of Box support confirmed that this is a product-wide change.

    The problem with this drop-down menu is that comments cannot be read in full anymore, as they are being truncated to fit in the small pane.

    Can either 1) the full Notifications page be made available again for users/organizations who wish to keep it, or 2) the new drop-down menu have…

  2. Enable Fast Push Notifications for Metadata Changes.

    Enable Fast Push Notifications for Metadata Changes.

    Nationwide is a platform customer who is customizing Box’s UI elements to support a new version of their Claim Center application. One of their usecases requires nearly instantaneous notification for metadata updates. The Event Stream is not an appropriate source because of the delay associated in parsing.

    This functionality would 100% be used by Nationwide.

  3. Disable shared link expiration notifications

    This unstoppable auto-notification [for shared link expiration], specifically, is the worst. While we are a fairly small firm, we use Box pretty extensively and we use shared links pretty extensively. All of our shared links automatically expire. As a result, my inbox is continuously inundated with this notification (we’re talking nearly 100, each day). I don’t have the time to look at each and review them. I don’t know if anyone could ever actually have the time to review them and make any kind of meaningful decision or conclusion based on, what is effectively, spam. With no way to stop…

  4. Forward Antivirus Protection notifications to specific definable email addresses

    As of now, only Site Admin and Content Owners will receive notifications from the Box Antivirus protection feature. We would like the ability to send those notifications to definable addresses within our organization. This will ensure our Security Team gets all the proper notifications and not just the Site Admin and Content Owner.

    The work around at the moment is to have the Site Owner setup forwarding Rules in their e-mail application.

  6. Turn off notification that people outside the organization can view a file when copied

    When I copy a file, I get a pop up saying people outside my organization can see it. I don't need to get that pop-up.

  7. folder notification

    Notifications about folder activity for emails who are not collaborators in the folder.

    Use case: Our end users are not allowed to access cloud data sites on our corporate network per compliance regulations thus them not being added as a collaborators. I sync the folders down to our file servers and share them creating a two-way data sync between our end users and their clients who use the website. I’ve just been asked to supply alerts when a client performs activities in shared folders but can’t do so directly because I can’t add specific email addresses to the alerts.

  8. Custom 401 error message for unauthenticated users

    I need to have a custom message shown to unauthenticated users which will show them how to gain access. How can I create this page, or create a redirect to a custom page so my users don't see the ugly error message.

  11. Language selection for confrm email

    My customer request to translate to Japanese the confirm email, especialy "Please confrm the email address change for your Box account".
    Many Japanese user didn't check the confirm email, because they guessed the English email is spam mail.

  13. Multiple Pages for Filtered Notifications

    In the Web App under Notifications the filtered views (anything other than All Messages) is limited to 50 items, and you do not have the option to go to the next page.

    For example our HR department set Tasks for each employee to review their Job Description. They were hoping to be able to do away with using a spreadsheet to track emails by seeing who was left under their Sent Tasks. But they are still using the spreadsheet and manual reminders since they weren't able to access more than 50 assigned tasks to send reminder emails.

  14. Ability to disable "user added another user to your folder as a collaborator" email notifications.

    We've built an app that centers around adding users to folders owned by a service account. We had over 150k notifications in a single day, accounting for 80% of their email traffic to a single inbox for a brief period. We've have added a rule to block these incoming emails, but we are not satisfied with this solution and urgently request the ability to turn these off.

  16. Ability for Reply to Box Shared Link Emails to be sent directly to sender

    When using the Box's Email Shared Link, there is no bounce back email or there is no way to track or reply to the email (the address has the name of the sender with a Box no reply email address).

    Request: Have email of the sender instead of the no reply box email address

  19. Collaborator Expiration Email: Provide Link to Relevant Documentation

    Currently, the email that users receive when a collaborator's access to a folder they own is expiring soon does not provide any relevant links to Box Community documentation explaining collaborator expirations, how to extend them, etc. This creates user confusion as to 1) why the collaborators are expiring, and 2) how to extend the collaborator's access to the folder.

    Thank you for the feedback. While we understand your request and agree that additional information in the email would be valuable, this feature is not on our roadmap at this time. Should that change in a future, we’ll post updates on this thread.
