  2. Attribute dropdown list for performing Metadata searches in Box

    We need a way to search for assets with metadata WITHOUT having to manually enter in the values into the Advanced Search tool.
    Without this important feature, users are forced to have to know beforehand or remember the values associated with each metadata atttribute.
    If someone had no idea which values to input into the search tool to search for assets, then how would they perform a search?

  3. Don't have incidence on rights in a tree when rights are updated in sub-folders

    When You put rights on a root folder, if You need to change the rights for an user in sub-folder, the impact is on the whole tree and this is not really cool... The best way is to keep the rights functionality but to forget the incidence when You change rights on sub-folders.
    It's very important !

  4. Save the default view for STL files on upload

    We would like the ability to save the default view for STL files to save the orientation, render mode, and camera projection within the web preview

    We used to be able to save the default view for STL files within a Box3d Metadata of the file. We no longer have that ability.

  5. Allow External Collaborators to Apply Metadata Templates / Add Values

    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.

  7. Compulsory sub-metadata once a specific metadata attribute has been chosen.

    We want to expose a sub-set of metadata based on the initial choice of attribute. For example, if you were to pick the attribute "size" it might then offer you a subselection of size variants.

  9. Regarding the display format of metadata reports

    Is it not possible to set the output format arbitrarily when generating reports from metadata, rather than being limited to JSON format?
    I would also like to have commas inserted into numeric fields of metadata to format them with thousands separators.

    (in Japanese)
    【メタデータレポートの表示形式について】

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  14. Metadata in reports

    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.

  15. 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…

  16. New Metadata Types that Reference Files, Folders, Users, and Groups

    Provide the capability to store and manage a relationship as metadata. This would allow you to model peer and parent-child relationships between Files, Folders, Users, and Groups. This would store the unique id for the Box object and provide a user experience that would allow you to navigate to each item by clicking on the metadata value.

  17. Visual colour reference on files as a label

    We currently use another cloud based system for image approval with a creative team. We are currently looking at moving this service over to box. Currently to approve reject images the team use labels. As a creative team they love labels as they are visual. A basic dropdown you can select against the image or multiple images that are colour coded without having to go in any sub menus to apply. Is there any plan to add a label function in box. Or is there one already that I’ve missed. I understand you can use tags/Meta data to do this…

  18. Data report (export) from Lite or Individual accounts

    Provide users who have an individual (Lite) account with the ability to export a report on data stored and data collaboration - as per a business account.
    This would be beneficial for data auditing.

  19. We would like the ability to put a specific Matadata as our home page.

    We would like the ability to select certain Matadata as our home page. This would allow for us to really customize our home page to our specific needs and the ability to adjust it easily, vs using the favorites.

  20. Update folder metadata

    I am not able to get complete documentation on Updating folder metadata action for the Box API. Based on the examples I see online, there seems to be body parameter information missing from the box.dev site, and the documentation on the developer.box.com API Reference site is mostly blank.
