  1. When creating a metadata template, allow the user to select the target folder, so that the metadata is used only under a specific folder.

    Currently, when a metadata template is created, it is published within the tenant.

    Thus, all metadata is desplayed , make it difficult use when setting metadata. Also, there is a possibility that metadata will be setting to content that shloud not be.

    So, when creating a metadata template, we would like to make metadata template only be used under a specific folder by allowing the user to select the folder to be used.

    【メタデータテンプレートを設定する時、フォルダを指定し、そのフォルダ配下でのみで使用したい】

    現在メタデータテンプレートを作成すると全体に公開されてしまうため、必要なコンテンツ以外にメタデータテンプレートが付与されてしまう可能性があります。
    また、たくさんのテンプレートが見えると非常に使いにくいです。

    メタデータテンプレートの設定をする時、ユーザーが利用できるフォルダを指定し、特定のフォルダ配下のみで利用できるようにしてほしいです。

  2. Add information in “File Properties” to metadata

    Currently the information in the “File Properties” (owner, created date, retention policy exp, size) is all siloed and unusable for anything but viewing in preview. Adding that information as normal Box metadata will make it available for reporting, sorting, as a policy trigger, and consumable by Crooze for tasks like retention policy expiry reports.

  3. If we make changes to the metadata template, the changes should be reflected in the metadata of the created file request link.

    If we make changes to the metadata template, the changes should be reflected in the metadata of the created file request link.

    When changing the item name of a metadata template or the display order of text item choices,The changes are not reflected in the configured file request screen.
    When the number of file request settings is large, the metadata templates need to be changed manually one by one when there is a change in the metadata template. This is a burden on workers and leads to a decrease in operational efficiency.

    メタデータテンプレートに変更を加えた際に作成済みのファイルリクエストリンク内のメタデータにも変更を反映して欲しい

    メタデータテンプレートの項目名変更や、テキスト項目の選択肢の表示順を変更した際、設定済のファイルリクエストの画面に変更内容が反映されません。
    ファイルリクエストの設定件数が多い場合、メタデータテンプレートに変更があった際に1つずつ手動で変更が必要なため作業者の負担となり業務効率の低下に繋がります。

  4. HASANY/HASALL implementation of metadata queries / メタデータクエリのHASANY/HASALLの実装

    I would like to implement HASANY/HASALL for metadata queries.
    We have implemented it in the released functionality with reference to the Metadata Query Toolkit, but suddenly it is no longer available and we are having trouble. The answer was that there is no alternative.

  5. Sort metadata templates / メタデータテンプレートの並び替え

    Metadata templates are arranged in ascending order based on "the template key".
    "The template key" often do not match with custom templates written in Japanese, so this specification is inconvenient for users looking for these.

    We would like the administrator to be able to freely change the display order in the Admin Console.

    (IN JAPANESE)
    現在メタデータテンプレートは、テンプレートキーに基づいた昇順で並ぶ仕様となっています。
    日本語のカスタムテンプレートとそれに紐づくテンプレートキーは、名称が一致しないためユーザーがテンプレートを探す際に不便です。
    管理者が自由に表示順を変更できるようにしてください。

  6. Option to overwrite metadata values when moving file

    We would like the option for a metadata attribute to be overwritten automatically when moved to a folder with cascading metadata enabled for the same metadata template.

    Here's our use case:
    Some of our organization content currently sits in user folders. People accessing that content have no way of knowing where it sits, and therefore can't take action to move it to the desired location. Applying a metadata template indicating if content sits within a user or an organizational folder would be a great way to make this visible to users. With the current behavior, we can't do that, as…

  7. Request to improve metadata_query limitation

    Metadata queries Limitations
    https://developer.box.com/guides/metadata/queries/limitations/

    When sending a metadata query request for which the result set exceeds 2,000 items, the API can only guarantee that it returns all all matching results if both the following conditions are met.
    1.The requesting user has at least ​Previewer ​permission to all items in the result set
    2.The ancestor folder contains all of the files in the result set

    With the above limitation, it is not possible to narrow down the search to metadata for a specific folder when the range of metadata assigned is wide.
    Could it be improved so that the number of…

  8. I have some files sorted into collections. It would be great if I could select all the files and tag them.

    Currently you have to tag each file in a collection individually. If you select all the tag option disappears.

  9. Custom document repositories with metadata search

    User groups often look to create an interface for document repositories for content stored on Box, where metadata could be used to search/filter content. That would be an interface with medatada fields similar to what can be found on websites (i.e. https://www.calpnetwork.org/library/). The current experience of using the native search, then selecting a single metadata template, then selecting an attribute is not sufficiently user friendly and it's not possible to embed a pre-selected set of metadata fields for search onto an intranet or website.
    We're currently not using metadata templates much, but this would be a very practical way…

  11. Drop downs to accomodate for State, Country and Currency

    Retail use case where we would like to be able to apply metadata to a store such as state and country. Ideally have a drop down list of the 50 states to easily choose from and have a consistent format instead of having using type it in.

  12. Apply Classification labels on multiple items

    It's not currently possible to select multiple files or folders and classify them all at once. We have to click the More Options button on each item to apply the labels one-by-one. I need to apply classifications to about 40-50 existing folders so I'll have to do them individually. Please consider allowing us to click the checkboxes next to multiple items and then show the classify option under More Options, or add a button alongside there next to the Move/Copy, Collections, Trash buttons, etc.

    Update: I discovered that you can use a Box Relay workflow using a Manual Start trigger…

  14. Metadata template creation - option to duplicate metadata template, then edit

    A lot of the metadata templates will have similar fields, so ideally you could duplicate an existing metadata template, then make edits from there rather than just having the option to start new each time.

    I would greatly appreciate it if you could assist me in creating a report for the documents within the folder. My goal is to see all the metadata associated with each of the files uploaded to that particular folder. Your help in this matter would be truly valuable.

    Adding metadata as an additional column into Box interface which is similar to Tags can help to check the status.

    The User activity report should have option to pull the report for who add/edit status in the report and should have what the collaborators tried to add.

    The user activity report should have ability to get the Tags Add/Edit from the report.

  18. Metadata Instance Update - Remove when no value should not fail

    When Updating a metadata instance to remove a value from a specific instance, currently today the API fails if the field has no value.

    I would like to propose that if the field had a value it is removed, and if it doesn't - then just ignore the operation. Similar to what add does if the field already has a value, it just silently replaces it.

    As an option, in case others are relying on the failure, maybe add a new operation "forceRemove" so that if there is no value, the code will just ignore it and continue with the…

  19. Metadata export with file upon download

    We use box widget on our website for file upload. We have a metadata form/template that gets filled out, however outside of box there is no way we can use that data. We are looking to automate some process's it would be nice if the information that is filled out could be extracted with the uploaded pdf file upon download. Once the pdf has been downloaded the metadata that goes with the file is gone. I'm told that this isn't possible currently with box. Hopefully some consideration on how box can be used in automation process outside of its own…

  20. Improving metadata input experience from file request links

    The operability of the metadata amount and date input fields should be improved.
    Currently, after entering a numeric value, the input value changes unless the user selects a blank space on the screen or moves to the next item, which does not seem to be a common operability.
    For example, entering 1000 in the metadata amount field from the request link and then entering the next item without selecting a blank space on the screen or moving to the next item will cause the amount value to change to 999.
