Don't stay distracted by new file notifications all day—instead, use Zapier's Digest tool to pull all of your Box notifications together and get them at one time. Zapier can watch Box for new files, and then send them to you on the schedule you want (each day, week, or month) in a Slack direct message. It's a simple way to stay on top of the new files in your team account.

How this Box-Slack integration works

  1. A new file is added to Box
  2. Zapier adds the file to a digest
  3. On the schedule you set, Zapier sends the digest to you in a Slack direct message
