Better notification controls

Better notification controls

We have run into problems where the wrong people receive notifications to certain folders. I would prefer if users (Standard or Power) could subscribe to individual folders, rather than only receive notifications for all folders they have access to.

In our company, we have a mix of clients, intra-company standard users, and power users. We give company members access to all of our general shared/file transfer folders, regardless of which clients have access to them. As a result, we all get notifications for ALL client file transfers. This generates a ton of email.

I would also like to be able to, as an admin, set notifications to default to OFF, but let users turn them on if they want to.

Hi Nik,

Thank you for the suggestion. This feature is not currently in the product road-map, but it is something we are considering adding in the future. Let me know if you have any further questions or suggestions!

Best,

Emily

We are currently evaluating Egnyte - looks like a great product, however, this is one of the most important features for us (ability to add granularity to folder notifications)  Is this on the roadmap yet?  thanks!

Add me as an admin who would find folder-level notification settings *very* useful.

This is a given... the current function is of no use in teams of more than 1, as people just ignore the emails, as they get fed up of them not being related to anything they are working with.

This is a huge handicap for us as well.  We now have to consider abandoning to another provider.
