Our admin would like his metadata fields to be transcribed into basic text and added to the file in the description field.
This will help admins and users understand more context about the file without having to look at each metadata field.0 votes
It would be helpful to allow for admins to input their own translations of metadata keys that match supported languages of other parts of the webapp that are already localized.0 votes
When adding new values/attributes to a metadata template, the same value is used by all users regardless of user's locale.
For companies that have users in a wide range of geographies, it would be helpful to be able to give metadata attributes/values different names for different locales.4 votes
Restrict the ability to modify metadata values to a privileged user (likely co-admin)2 votes
Indexing Delay (Custom metadata is only accessible via index and there's a 5-10 minute delay between that shows in the search index)14 votes
As we need to meet specific regulatory or compliance requirements, it's helpful to have a history of the metadata attributes that are applied to a folder or file.
It would be ideal if this was versioned on files/folders in the UI or reportable via user reports.18 votes
Metadata Search - Only Show Relevant Templates (That Are Already Applied to Content I have Access To)
Currently the Webapp Search UI filters for Metadata Templates show the user ALL Metadata Templates that are in their EID, regardless of whether the specific user actually has access to any content where that Template is being used.
This leads to a cluttered list of Metadata Templates in the webapp search filters UI when an EID has many Metadata Templates.9 votes
The webapp defaults to showing the user 3 columns - Name, Modified, and Size.
This request is to allow the user to customize which columns are shown -- i.e., show me the Name, Size, and Metadata field X columns, but nothing else. Or show me the Name, Modified, and Access Stats (Previews) columns.
Example columns to choose from:
-Kind (File Type)
-Access Stats (Preview, Download, etc.)
-Metadata (specific template/field)
Make users apply metadata as files are uploaded.65 votes
Currently, external collaborators in folders cannot apply metadata templates that originate in the folder owner's EID.
REQUEST: Allow external collaborators to take advantage of applying Metadata Templates to folders based on the owner of the folder.2 votes
Customers would like a way to provide a sub-set of capabilities to their end-users to create metadata templates, without having to give them a co-admin level access to Box admin console.6 votes
We heavily use Bookmarks for things that do not live within Box. We would like to have metadata applied to bookmarks for further search functionality.3 votes
Narrower use case than the other items on our roadmap so it will not be prioritized.
