Box: Make My Collaborators Invisible To Each Other

To hide collaborators, you must be the owner of the Collaboration Folder. There is a setting at the folder level called Hide Collaborators. When you enable this Folder Properties option:

  • Collaborators in this folder:
    • Cannot see each other.
    • Cannot add/invite new collaborators.
    • Cannot assign tasks to folder co-owners as they are hidden.
  • The folder owner and co-owners are visible to all collaborators.
  • All other collaborators are displayed as Someone in the collaborator's username field.
  • Only the owner or co-owner can add new collaborators.
