  1. File Upload Notification - Ability to set alerts to a specific managed user per folder

    File Upload can be a game changer for our company - with 1 major exception. Notifications in box seem to be all or nothing. Its overwhelming. Most of our team have them all turned off.

    We would like the ability to set a notification for file uploads - per folder - per user/s. Example: Folder named: Dr. Joe with 10 folders within it. One of the sub-folders is named "Uploads from Dr. Joe" A file request link is created and shared with the client for this sub-folder. Then, regardless of who owns the file, you can add certain managed user/s…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. Failed login email alerts

    It'd be great if the "failed to log in 5 times” email alerts included the time, IP address, location, and what part of Box the user was trying to log in to (e.g. web app, desktop app, FTP, API, etc.) for each of the failed attempts. That’d make it a lot easier to track down any issues on our side, or determine whether there was an internal security issue to investigate. If it could also include similar details about the last couple of successful attempts, that’d also be helpful, just to see if there’s a deviation from a pattern

  13. Disable integration email notification

    ForeScout currently has an integration setup with DocuSign to upload a copy of any completed PDFs to Box. When this occurs, we receive an email from DocuSign with the PDF attachment and also the below email from Box. This is the Docusign to Box integration. The email from Box does not provide detail around where the file was saved or a link to access it. Given that we have a rather high volume of these uploads, I was wondering if there was a way to disable email notifications like this.

  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?

  17. Show full path for Box updates emails - new items were added to

    Please show the full folder path for the Box Updates emails that alert users that "new items were added to."
    There is no possible business case for showing only the tail end of the path/filename.
    Users might have multiple parent folders with identical subfolder structures, in which case showing only the tail end of the path doesn't allow the user to know which parent folder the update applies to.

  18. Need error log print or output option

    My Box context menu says "Error updating 28 items." I look at the errors, figure out the problem, and want to send the file list to the person who is causing the problem. Oh wait, there's no way to do that. I can't capture the text displayed, I can't forward it, I can't do anything.

    Please add a "print log" function or permit the user to somehow get info out of the display window. I need to send the details to another person.

    Thank you.

  19. Your email reminders to setup 2FA are too aggressive

    Over the course of 6 hours (during the night), I received 5 emails asking me to 'Set up 2 Factor Authentication'. This is quite aggressive.

  20. 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…
