Re: Upload to Box Through Email



Unfortunately, I do not see the option: Overwrite same-name files when uploading by email or widget.


As a result both files are kept, and the new one has random characters.


Where can I find the overwrite function, or it was removed?


Thank you!

Re: Upload to Box Through Email

Hi @nr1md


Welcome to the Box Community and thanks for your first post in the forum!


Can you confirm what permission you have in this folder?


You must be the owner or at least a co-owner to see the "Overwrite files with the same name when uploading by email or widget" button. If you do not see this option, you may have a different permission and you may need to reach out to the owner of the  folder to enable this setting.


Hope that helps!
