A word about subscriptions

Important!

Remember to re-subscribe to Product Updates to continue getting email notifications of new product announcements and changes going forward, as the old Product News blog will not longer be updated.

 

Tell us what you think!

See anything out of place, catch something missing, or have feedback? We want to know, so please comment on this post to tell us what you think. We are continuing to clean up some minor issues as we find them, so we appreciate your patience. Welcome to Product Central!

We are excited to announce our new Product Central space is launching at the end of November!

 

What is Product Central?

Product Central will be the centralized location for all Box product-related items including Box product updates, Box newsletters, product category pages, and more!

 

So what's new?

We are excited to announce that our Product News will be transitioned to our "Product Updates" page.

  • Users will be able to filter through product areas and their statuses to find the information that they are looking for on one announcement rather than sifting through multiple announcements and pages to find this information.
  • We are adding a "Rolling Out" status to better inform our customers on the progress of each launch.

 

We will also be rebranding the product category pages on the community to ensure all the relevant information is readily available. You can also see the most recent updates for each product right from this page.

 

Will I have to resubscribe to get updates?

Yes. If you are currently subscribed, you will have to re-subscribe to the new Product Updates area once it is live. Don't worry, we will make it obvious with a subscribe button on the page.

 

Will I still be able to access the old Product News page?

Yes. We will archive the old product news announcements, but moving forward we will be posting all new updates to the new Product Updates page.

 

 

Thanks for your feedback and patience! We will keep you updated on more exciting changes to come!

BoxWorks is almost here!

 

A quick heads up that an amazing number of articles and content will be posted on the Box Community in the coming week as BoxWorks18 descends. For those of you who may want to protect your inbox from the flood of news, I have a recommendation – try switching temporarily to daily digests in your subscriptions!

 

Did you know your Box Community subscriptions are extremely configurable? But here's two quick tips for BoxWorks specifically:

  1. First, be sure to subscribe to the Box Customer Resource blog and Box Product News blog (if you haven't already) where most of the news will be posted.
  2. Second, go to your subscription notification settings in the community and in the "Notify me of" section where it says New topics or articles posted in boards I subscribe to select the In a Daily digest option from the drop-down.

That's all there is to it! You'll receive a single email each day with the full digest of content that has been posted, and avoid inbox overload. Then be sure to set yourself a reminder to go back to your settings after BoxWorks18 is over to adjust your subscriptions back to the way you prefer.

 

Hope to see you at BoxWorks18 next week! Come visit us at the BoxStars booth inside the Partner Pavilion and say hello!

Hi everyone!

 

It's about that time again – our Box Community Terms of Service were starting to show their age, so we've given them a refresh to keep pace with our community's needs. You can always find the current Community Terms of Service here for review: https://community.box.com/t5/About-the-Box-Community/Box-Community-Terms-of-Service/ta-p/26107

 

Some highlights include:

  • Updated the Purpose to better reflect how our community is used today.
  • Updated the Guidelines section to cover communications from Box employees, "bumping", and removed some redundant language, etc.
  • Updated the contact information in multiple places to make sure any issues or questions get to the right people.
  • Added a section on "feedback and submissions" to cover those types of content.
  • And generally updated any legalese to adhere to Box standards in use elsewhere.

 

Along with our Member Guidelines, our community terms of service are an important part of the how we set expectations on the community and keep this space a friendly and productive environment for all our members. Please take a moment to review them now and understand the changes. If you have any questions please contact a member of the community team via private message or via community@box.com for assistance.

 

Thanks to everyone who follows our terms of service and our guidelines, and helps make the Box Community a welcoming place for all our members!
