User Email Notifications in Box

User Email Notifications

To keep you apprised of current events in your account, Box has built an email notification system that lets you know when your collaborators access or edit your files. It’s up to you what actions you’ll be notified about, so here’s how to make your choices:


  1. Click your initials or profile image in the top right corner of your account and select Account Settings from the drop down menu.
  2. Next, select the Sharing tab and scroll down to the Email Notifications section. From here, you can adjust the default email notification settings for your account. Once you’re finished, click Save Changes in the upper right corner.
