On Friday, February 23rd, ITS will change the default notification settings that are set for users who log in to Box @ UNCG for the first time. Existing users’ notification settings will not be affected. New users can choose to change their notification settings if they prefer, by using the options in “Account Settings” after logging into Box.

This change is in response to user feedback regarding the high number of notifications sent by default.

Previously, the default settings included enabling notifications for folders users have joined. The new default settings will not include any of the “in folders they’ve joined” section (as pictured below):
