  1. Metadata on Bookmarks

    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. The ability to drive unconstrained repeating metadata

    Essentially, this is allowing the ability to add metadata not necessarily from a drop down list.

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Metadata additonal column

    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.

  11. Make metadata attributes required on templates

    We need a way to make selected attributes required custom templates, so that when the templates are applied to Folders/Files the user can not save the metadata form bypassing the required metadata.

  12. Metadata: enable cascading Metadata for custom Metadata

    I enabled Cascading Metadata, but can only use existing Metadata Templates. When I try to use custom Metadata that is not an existing template, I get error: "Cascade policy cannot be applied to custom metadata at this time."

  13. Metadata: enable functionality where users must provide a reason for changing a metadata value on highly protected content

    Metadata: enable functionality where users must provide a reason (e.g. a comment) for changing a metadata value on highly protected content.

    Possibly, we offer the option to configure Box Shield Classification Tags for this. E.g. The tag could say "metadata changes require justification."

  16. Allow AppUser in developer sandbox to use API to invite groups to folders in production.

    User groups belong to the production, and production-ready applications are not supported.
    Therefore, we cannot invite groups to folders in production.

  17. Allow AppUser in developer sandbox to use API to create metadata instances in folders in production.

    Metadata is set up in folders in our production via API by AppUser in the developer sandbox.
    However, metadata templates belong to the production, and production-ready applications are not supported.
    Therefore, we can set item values for the configured metadata instances, but we cannot create metadata instances.

  19. Meta Data

    Two Recommendations;
    1) When a file or folder has metadata applied, having a ICON on record (similar to a shared link or description) be visible.. Currently you don't know UNLESS you select the item and do to details to see if template has been applied.

    2) When metadata is applied, showing the metadata values when you select the record similar go to Details would be be great.
    When using Metadata the file or folder where the metadata is applied should clearly show (like a shared link or description) that met

  20. Consistent menu in web app when applying metadata to file and folder

    Request to make applying of templates for files and folders consistent. Provide same menu item for file and folder when applying a template. Allow application of template on a file without previewing the file just like in folder.
