Disable email notification for File Request uploads

Is there an easy way to disable the email notification for each time someone uploads to my FileRequest folder ?  I've attempted to turn off most notifications in settings.

I think Brad H. has the same question as I do. 

I do not want to be notified each time a shared file is updated. 

How can this email notification be disabled?

Are all members of a shared file notified? 

or just the owner?

I have this question too.

I have this same question. My email is getting filled with messages from Dropbox.  I have turned all of the notifications under settings on Dropbox and I am still getting these emails. I tried to contact Dropbox and they blew me off. 

 

Help!

I have not found a solution, and Dropbox don't appear to be addressing this. I now use an email rule to send anything I receive from Dropbox to trash. Means I don't get any marketting from them either... feels a little like natural retribution. I'll begin to look at Dropbox emails again when they provide a switch to turn off file upload email notifications.

Get it together DB... many people are asking for this feature.

Any updates on this? The notifications and e-mails are the single most annoying thing about dropbox. It's unbearable.

This definitely needs to be fixed. My e-mail is flooded with these notifications. Please fix this DB!

Level 2

yes, PLEASE DropBox! I have entire courses of students uploading files, and now I get a stupid amount of "dropbox spam" in the form of file upload alert emails. This is making me nuts. I need to be able to TURN THIS OFF.

Agree with all the others comments above! Great feature but too annoying when the number of submissions gets large (such as in a classroom setting)

Level 2

Sorry to interrupt your requests, but I'm actually looking for a way to turn these notifications ON. I don;t get that many but it's important I know abou them! Do you have to have an upgraded account? Or is there a simple setting somewhere? Any help appreciated!
