    Hi Helen, 

    Welcome to the Box Community and thanks for your post in the forum!

    Different users collaborating in a folder can set their own specific Folder level email notifications (if allowed by the folder owner).

    To set specific folder notification:

    • Right click the folder in Box.com
    • Choose Settings and scroll-down to Email and Notifications section
    • Enable "Override default settings for this folder..." then choose "Uploads".

    When email notifications are applied in the "Folder Settings", it will be the default email notifications for all files in the folder and subfolders. 

    Thanks for your time and participation in the Community!

    Best, 

    France

    Hey, Brian!

    Thanks for following up!

    Users would have the enable individually the notification for "uploads" in the shared folder to get notified on. 

    If this is something you would like to be able to do, I would highly recommend submitting this feature request at pulse.box.com! Our product managers review these requests and take them into consideration for future product development.

    Thanks for your participation in Box Community!

    Hi,

    I created a Box folder and want to set the setting on this folder that will allow other users to set their settings to receive email notifications when files are uploaded. If I

    • Enable "Override default settings for this folder..." then choose "Uploads".

    will this allow users to modify their own settings?
