Re: Is it possible to disable email notifications for the team?

Hey there @Lemmings  - welcome to our forums!

As you've probably noticed by now, we don't have a way to turn off digest emails for the entire team right now. As a workaround, each individual user on the team can turn off their own digest emails.  The steps to do this, if you want to share them with your members directly, are:
- Go to dropbox.com
- Click on your picture on the right top corner
- Select "Settings"
- Click on "Notifications"
- There you will find all the emails we are sending currently to your account, feel free to untick any you would like to avoid. 

Having said that and as I understand the significance of this for you and your team - I've made sure to pass your comments on to our dev team for future consideration.

I know it's not much but I sure hope this helps to some extent while I also remain at your disposal should you come up with any additional feedback or questions -  just let me know.

In the meantime, have a lovely weekend!

I agree that this would be a good feature to be able to turn off digest emails by default. My team doesn't need this at all.

also agreed, i would like this feature added to dropbox aswell so it can be centrally managed.

The workaround provided is ok for a handful of end users with 1 device each.... unfortunately on a larger scale, this workaround solution is not a solution

Thanks for showing your interest in this people ( @Genevieve222 & @aap2 ) - I'll make sure to add your comments in my feedback report to the relevant product team. 

 That being said, I also moved this to the 'Share an Idea' section for better visibility and so that other users can upvote this feature request - an option for team admins to be able to disable the weekly digest emails for the whole team that is (through the Admin Console from what I can imagine). 

Should you have any more feedback, do let me know please; I'll be happy to follow up.
