    Goto Account Settings then select the Notifications tab.  You should be able to pick which emails you want to receive from here.

     

    You can also change the notifications for each folder - right-click over the folder and select Folder Settings.  You can alter the Notifications here.

     

    I hope this helps.

    There is no option in the Notifications section about emails when a collaboration invite is sent.

    Email notifications about collaborations invites cannot be stopped unfortunately. Those emails are always sent out and there is no setting to disable them.

    It's been a while since this post, and I am wondering if there is any plan to stop email notifications when collaborators are invited to a folder I co-own? We are inviting hundreds of collaborators to subfolders, and it is annoying and distracting to receive an email every time collaborators are invited. Any fix for this?

    Hi ,

     

    Thanks for your post in the community!

     

    Unfortunately, the email notifications for Collaboration Invite and Accepted is automatic so we have no way of disabling the settings for that. However, setting up email filters is an efficient way to manage your email inbox.

     

    Here's how:

    Hope it helps!

    The notification settings are located at: Account Settings>Sharing>Email Notifications

    Very much agree. Would be valuable to choose invitation timing.

    Any plans on fixing this?
    If we can control when we get notifications for preview, downloads, etc. why can't we also control "Collaboration Invite and Accepted" settings? Shouldn't it be easily set up on your end?

    Making all the users of Box fix the problem individually using filters/rules is a poor substitute.

    Can you turn off notifications when someone shares a file (not entire folder) with me? 

     

    Someone shared a Word doc with me and every time they edit/save it with the online Word, I get email about a new version.

    Please let us turn off notifications when we upload something etc. Notice goes to everyone in the folder and it would be weird to ask executives to set up email filters.

    That is not the question.  The question is how does one manage notifications sent to others.

    How is it possible that the devs have ignored this for so long.

    Yes, exactly.  Such a failure to understand the workplace.

    And while I'm at it.  Why isn't this chat threaded?  It is impossible to correctly read and understand the conversation correctly when it is just one posting after another.  This was ok in 1980, but now? Seriously?

    Any update on this issue? box I don't want people I collaborate a folder with to ALWAYS get email notifications EVERY TIME I update make a change to my folders. It's too much like I'm being micromanaged.

    PLEASE MAKE THIS AN OPTION FOR THE OWNER and CO-OWNER (I am a co-owner. My company is the "owner").

    Hi Linda, 

    Welcome to the Box Community!

    End users can have different "account wide" settings by manually adjusting their email notification settings. Furthermore, users collaborating in a folder can also set their own specific Folder level email notifications.

    Collaborators in a folder who don't want to receive email updates for changes to a collaborative folder; must setup email notifications from their own account, you cannot adjust this settings for them. Please refer to the following articles on how to manage there email notifications:

    If you have any product feature request or suggestions, we recommend you post your idea on pulse.box.com for more visibility. Our product team reviews all submissions and will consider whether to include feedback in their product roadmap. 

    Best,
