How can I manage incoming collaboration invitations to folders?



Get Training

By default, your Box account will be set to automatically accept incoming collaboration invitations.  This means that when someone invites you to collaborate on a folder, your account will automatically accept this invitation and you will receive an email notification alerting you of the invitation and acceptance.

If you would prefer to manually accept/reject incoming collaboration invitations, you can disable this setting on your account by following these steps:

  • From within your Box account, click on the gear icon in the upper right hand corner and select “Account Settings
  • Under the “Content and Sharing” tab, scroll down until you see a section titled “Collaborating on Content
  • Uncheck the box marked “Automatically accept incoming collaboration invitations


  • Click “Save” to confirm this change
