  1. zip file decompression function

    Zip files cannot currently be unzipped in Box.
    We would like to add additional functionality because it would reduce the risk of virus infection and improve user convenience by allowing users to unzip Zip files in Box without downloading them.
    It would be even better if you could also support Zip files with passwords.

  2. FTP - Root Level Access

    When connecting to Box via FTP you are logged into a session that is specific to your user account even if you are the Box administrator. In standard FTP server administration practice you can set which directory a user is dumped into upon login. There should be an administrator level setting that can be enabled to choose at which level the Admin account gets logged into, in this case the FTP root.

    Currently when logging into Box FTP via Admin account you are defaulted to \FTP.box.com\Users\Admin and do not have permissions to jump up a directory to \FTP.box.com\Users

    You should…

  3. Add a new security level of "Restrict"

    I understand the current security levels may once have reflected some technical details e.g. the permissions that might be assigned in a particular file system. However, this could be enhanced by a new security level ("Forbidden", "Excluded", "Restrict" or whatever makes sense) that is applied by exception.

    A simple example:

    Folder "News" has All Company as viewers.

    Group "Contractors" are invited as "Restrict" access.

    Whenever any user seeks access e.g. viewing the contents of the folder that contains folder "News", they will of course inherit the permissions from the parent, but before being allowed to see "News" Box first checks…

  4. The login page I land on does not have an SSO option.

    There is no SSO login button on the login page that I land on when sent there from a SLACK link.
    Every login page, no matter how I am sent to it, should have identical functionality! Basic coding practice says a feature should be implemented once, and used everywhere. I need to login with SSO. I need the SSO login button on EVERY login page I may be presented.
    As a WORKAROUND, I need to remember I need to use SSO, then manually go to another random login page and use the SSO there to get a token .

  5. Locating who/when files are Moved/Removed (accidentally or on purpose)

    If a user moves/renames/removes files, the URLs shouldn't simply be dead links now. Please record information so that impacted users know When the file was moved/removed, and WHO did the action.
    I recently had Box Notes and Folders get moved or removed. And while I know who SHOULD have been the owner of the content, anyone else having problems finding the content wouldn't know who to contact.
    So if a box link was previously valid, and that content has moved or removed, leaving some breadcrumb for the user, about who to contact, when the content was moved/removed, etc, can help…

  6. Progress Bar when uploading and restoring

    Is there any progress bar or any visible information where we can know the progress of tasks being run? For example, I wanted to recover a 200gb folder. It took a long time to find the data that needed to be restored. This is a similar thing when uploading files onto Box onto the web app. There is a progress bar but when a user goes to a new page it disappears and it is still running in the background

  8. Ability to set a limit to collaborator view

    I want to show (share) confidential content with someone outside the company for a limited period (e.g., three days).

    Problems
    - Using an open link doesn't allow for restricting access to specific individuals.
    And in the case of individuals without a Box account, access logs cannot be recorded.
    - Using collaborators doesn't enable automatic removal of specific collaborators after a certain period.

    Please provide a solution.

  9. Separate folder move and copy function

    As far as i understand, the move and copy folder function in Box Web is combined from a role perspective. That means a user must have Co-Owner rights to move a folder but also to copy a folder. I agree that moving a folder means deleting the folder on the source location which may need elevated role. But copying a folder only needs read access on the source folder. So it would be great to separate these two functions and make the copy function available to users who have editor role on the target folder and have at least previewer…

  10. Movement between Tenant

    Currently when you make a movement between a Box tenant, based on Folder and File, the behaviour is different.

    Folder: it will be an error
    File: it will be moved without any message

    I would like it to be error for Files movement and also copying too.

  11. Alias files/ links to files

    Oftentimes, a file has more than just one "right place" within a folder structure.
    For example, if you have a folder for the HR-department and a folder for the legal-team, both teams need to access the subfolder "employment contracts".
    On local Windows Explorer or Apple Finder it is possible to create alias-files that link to the "main-file", so you can access a file from multiple locations.
    Such a feature is not available in Box. Since it is cruicial for files that needs to be accessed from different locations/ teams, I am asking you to implement this feature.

    Thank you!

  14. Need the ability for users to rename shared folders that will not affect the name for other users.

    Honestly the entire functionality of the shared folders within box could use an upgrade. We switched from Dropbox to Box because we thought it had more features and better for business, but it blows my mind that we could rename shared folders in Dropbox on a user level, and it does not affect other users that share the folder, but Box won't allow that? Make it very difficult for individual users to customize their folder structure and such in a way that works for them. It's way to restrictive.

  15. Remove File Size Limit

    File sizes only continue to grow as video quality improves due to better technology. Our video teams have some files that are 700 GB or more. We are unable to use Box as a backup solution because of the file size limit.

  16. Folder Under Retention Should Not Be Purged From Trash

    When a folder is deleted from trash that contains files under retention policy it causes issues because the files are no longer visible to the customer to recover them. This happens if the trash admin setting is set to purge all trash in a certain time period.

  19. If I move a file, let me leave a hint to the new location in the original folder

    When a shared file or folder is renamed and/or moved to a different folder, retain a hint in its original location that it's been moved so that "Search in folder" can helpfully inform that the file/folder has been moved or renamed, and provide a link to the new location. The user does not need to see the current name of the file, or its new location. When they follow the link, they access the file/folder according to how it's shared at its new location.

    An expandable "Recently moved" area in each folder could provide a compact list of files and…

  20. Ability to edit file request

    I created a file request with 3 different file request upload boxes (videos, images, quotes), but didn't know that users MUST upload something into the first box or they would get an error. It would be VERY helpful to either be able to edit a file request (so I can change it to just one upload box) or allow people to upload into ANY of the file request boxes.
