M+Box Tip: Disable Notification for Folders


One of our favorite things on the M+Box team is hearing from the U-M community about how they are using M+Box at work, including tips and tricks they've learned. Recently, we got a great M+Box tip from Kellie Brown and Kim Wooton from ITS, who showed us how to suppress change notifications to a Box folder.

Owners and co-owners of a folder can suppress all notifications on a folder by clicking the More Options drop-down next to the appropriate folder on the All Files page (or from within a folder) then click Properties > Email Options.

Once the Folder Properties window options, click the Disable notifications for this folder checkbox to suppress all notifications on a folder. Once selected, no one will receive email notifications about changes to this folder.

Folder Properties - Updates Disabled

This is great knowledge to have as we all know how annoying constant email notification can be. If you've got tips you use with M+Box, please take a few minutes and share with the community. It's something we will all benefit from!
