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!

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.

I need to know how to turn off e-mail notifications under file requests.  There are two types of e-mail notifications that you get and that I want to STOP receiving:

  1. When you request a file from a large number of people and you receive an email every time a file is uploaded.  This is horrible for someone who requests files from 30 people several times a day with several different file requests.
  2. How to turn off the e-mail notifications when you create a new file request.  Sometimes I create several file requests at one time and I am receiving e-mails everytime.

#1 Is a fixable issue and Dropbox should address this concern if they want basic users like me to consider paying for an ugraded account.

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)
