  1. Make the digest header in the Commit Upload endpoint optional

    Currently, Commit Upload endpoint requires passing a Digest header for the sha1 of the entire file.

    Given that the integrity of each file part is already verified, consider making the Digest header in the Commit Upload endpoint optional

  2. Allow Recents to be filtered via API

    Currently Recents is implemented globally across all Box content the user has access to. Ideally, Recents could be filtered to some ancestor folder IDs (like Search is) to show Recent items only within a particular folder.

    The use case is a custom application which is integrated with a company's primary Box instance. A custom app wanting to leverage the Recents feature does not have a way to get Recent items relevant to just the application content.

    This is not planned.

    We don’t see enough customer demand for this yet, and supporting every additional content type takes a significant amount of engineering time and effort.

  4. Adapt Annotations to achieve Accessibility guidelines

    Box View does not conformance with W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, version 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) at conformance levels A and AA - specifically, annotations can only be viewed around mouseover. This is a blocker for us as we work with public universities who have to meet those guidelines.

  6. Thumbnails should be able to be requested in a batch.

    You should be able to download all thumbnails for the items within a folder.

  9. Return collaborated files (single file collab SFC) under a folder via API

    Currently, there are two API calls surrounding getting a list of collaborations:
    https://developer.box.com/v2.0/reference#view-a-folders-collaborations
    https://developer.box.com/v2.0/reference#get-file-collaborations

    However, say a collaborated file exists under a non-collaborated/private folder. Now say the folder is large. It would be less easy to get a list of collaborated files under this folder without iterating through every single file.

  11. Source Type and Source Id Filters for Events Stream API

    In order to filter events for specific files in a scalable way, you need to persist the data to a 3rd-party data store. If you're able to filter by specific files/folders by id, you can access the full history of a given file and create a view based on those results which is extremely common in many content platforms.

  12. Add email information to COLLABORATION_INVITE event

    "COLLABORATIONINVITE" event should include "user email" information.
    We understand "user
    id" is unique attribute within Box to specify the user and user.id
    is included with "COLLABORATION_INVITE" attribute.
    It would be better if this also captured user email information.

  13. Watermarked PDFs currently output at large sizes when embedded

    Embedding watermarked PDFs currently come out at larger sizes than when embedding regular PDFs from Box. Would be nice for the user to be able to configure it the size it outputs at.

  14. Enablement Governance APIs for free developer accounts

    Currently, governance APIs are not enabled in the free developer accounts. This removes the ability to perform local unit testing and developers must perform unit testing in another environment. Since accounts are developer sandboxes, there is less risk in testing with pseudo-permanent APIs such as Retention Policies.

  15. Box Platform Performance in EMEA suffering

    We'remer using Box to replace existing ECM system. Transaction, after code optimisation takes 11 seconds when using caches and 20+ when no caches are used. Due to the time taken to perform transaction that future use cases are under threat and the performance volumes required cannot be met with current performance metrics.

  19. Box CLI resend

    The use case is we would like to resend/remind collaborators with invites of status "pending" using the Box CLI. Triggering new email notifications from Box.

    Presently we have to list the collaborators pending > csv, delete the collaboration, then collaborate again. A single call would make this much more efficient.

  20. box-ui-elements content-explorer needs real thumbnails

    The Content Explorer element needs at least the option to use actual file thumbnails rather than the generic ones based on file type currently shown. Otherwise browsing large collections of images and videos is severely handicapped. The API appears to have a thumbnail/representation endpoint so hopefully this is not a big ask.

    Other things that would really improve Content Explorer for our use case:
    - list/grid toggle button
    - ability to hide the modified date and owner (useless for our application which is a repository of read-only archived files uploaded by an uploader app)
