Removing Email Notifications from a Box@UNL Shared Folder

I love using Box as my go-to cloud storage and file sharing for work. Recently, my inbox has been flooded with emails from a shared folder. Sometimes these notifications can be very beneficial, but if you would like to turn off the email notifications here is how with 6 simple steps:

  1. Click BOX@UNL Login button at and sign into your account.Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 12.42.05 PM
  2. Then, find the shared folder that has been sending you the emails. On the right hand side of the page, there is a picture of a link, Share, a down arrow, and a box for that particular folder.Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 11.57.57 AM
