I think most of us want to protect our email inbox from excess emails so I believe every Box user should learn how to turn off / on email notifications.
You can receive notifications for actions taken in both folders you own and folders in which you are a collaborator (when you get an email for activity on a folder or file).
- Changing the default notification settings for a specific folder is easy and takes fifteen seconds.
- You can also change notification settings for your entire Box account.
Use Case Scenario
I am invited to collaborate on a folder and I want to turn OFF notifications so that I don’t get pinged every time the folder is visited and a file is viewed/downloaded/uploaded.
To turn off notifications, I have to go to folder settings > change settings > voila, all done. I get a slightly happier inbox.
I demonstrate how to do this in the video below.
I created this short silent (<40 sec) video demonstrating how I turned off all notifications for a folder.
