  1. "inactive" or "archive" flag maps to less-expensive storage

    FEATURE IDEA:
    Provide ability to flag/classify files and folders in a way that allows Box to move them to a less-expensive storage offering on the back-end. This can be referred to as an "inactive" or "archive" flag.

    BENEFITS & BACKGROUND

    During the Box Higher Education Community Monthly Open Discussion on January 11th, an idea to submit to Box Pulse was formed, and seemed to have support from all in attendance (25-30 institutions).

    Box acknowledges that there is a growing concern around constantly increasing storage, and the costs associated with it. The majority of files stored in Box are perceived (or…

  2. Add filter function to Event API to limit the result by specifying a path collection

    Event API result is a list of all updated files in an "entire" site.
    For enterprise use-cases, the volume of this returned data is inevitably very large.
    Thus, even if a part of site needs to be monitored, the network bandwidth is consumed unnecessarily and it casues the performance issue.
    Could you add a filter function to Event API so that the API returns only events related to the files in the specified path collection?
     
    This is the API asking to enhance

  3. Include Path Collection in the result of Event API

    Event API does not include the path collection for updated files. Thus, to get the updated files, another File Info API should be called.
    This situation increases the number of API calls and causes the complexity of the client program and the performance issue.
    Could you include the path collection in Event API results?

  5. Please add Linux to the support for Box.

    【Background】
    As we use many Linux servers, the total size of the log files is also large.
    Please add Linux as supported, as we want to save the log files stored on the Linux server to the Box.

    【Request】
    Box does not support Linux.
    In the past it was possible to access the Box via WebDAV, but this is no longer supported.
    Please add Linux to the support for Box.
    It would be preferable if it could be mounted like WebDav.
    If the folder on the Box can be mounted on Linux, the application can simply change the specification of…

  6. Please include a list of hard/soft limitations on the BoxSupport page, as described in "Product and API Scale Guidelines"

    Please include a list of hard/soft limitations on the BoxSupport page, as described in "Product and API Scale Guidelines".
    This information is currently available on request.
    However, hard/soft limits are variable information and you will need to request information on a regular basis.
    When obtaining the information on an request basis, there is a time lag before the contents are known.
    We always want to get the latest information independently ourselves, so we would like Box Support to keep us up to date with the latest informations.

    BoxSupportのページに、「製品およびAPIの規模に関するガイドライン」に記載されているような、ハードリミット/ソフトリミットの一覧を記載してください。
    この情報は現在、リクエストに応じて提供されています。
    しかし、ハードリミット/ソフトリミットは変動する情報なので、定期的に情報をリクエストする必要があります。

    リクエストベースで情報を入手する場合、内容が判明するまでにタイムラグが生じます。
    私たちは常に最新の情報を自身で入手したいと考えておりますので、Box Supportページには常に最新の情報を提供していただきたいと思います。

  7. Pull all embed widget links from folder of documents

    My company uses a lot of analytics dashboards. I have the need to connect a large folder of documents with the dashboards, and am unable to copy and past 10000+ widget links in order to give previews.

  8. version for multiple files

    return version to a date of all file in a folder, or all selected files.
    Today is possible to do this only if I open each file and select version, with a lot of clicks

  9. I would like the ability to lock down the sharing permissions of certain folders.

    The other day, a user “mistakenly” deleted the “All” group from the sharing permissions of our main folder share called “Clients”.

  10. upload speed limit

    There should be a possibility to limit the upload speed in order to still being able to work during the upload of larger files. Currently there is no possibility to limit the upload speed which leads to Box using all my upload bandwidth.

  11. Convert comment to task

    Comments in Box Preview are helpful, but sometimes need to be able to be converted into tasks. Rather than creating a new entry, it would be helpful to right-click or use a dropdown to convert the existing comment into a task automatically.

  12. Department Folder Auto Provisioning and Updating

    When enterprise needs to provision and update department folders, Box Admins or each folder owners would need to manually create, configure and update folders according to the organizational structure and would need to manually invite/remove all the necessary collaborators.

    We would want to have a native feature in Box to allow such folder provisioning and updating by importing CSV file that contains folder names, structures and collaborators.

  13. Ability to restict folder view to only show folders the user owns

    Allow ability to restrict folder view to ONLY those folders which the user owns. Either a separate view or something like a checkbox to enable/disable the restriction.

    For example, a user is leaving the company and wants to transfer ownership of their folders to another user. There is no easy way to see what folders you own. With hundreds of folders it could take a long time to find the ones you know to transfer them.

  14. Published Version Indicator

    Add the ability to mark(flag) a specific version as "Published" then provide filtering at API and in UI for "Show Published Only" - This is basic capability required for any controlled doc use case, allows for single version tree audit of documents. Should also provide "Was Published" to distinguish between past released and draft versions.

  15. File uploads are extremely slow.

    File uploads are extremely slow. For example, a group of 3 x 20Mb files might take an entire day to upload on a 5mb.s connection. This has happened in the past 3-4 weeks.
    I found the root cause of it. I am in New Zealand and redirected to the Tokyo server, which is very very slow. I verified that this upload path is an issue thus:
    Tried to upload a 20Mb file using browser (via Tokyo) - 2 hrs later the file was at 20% upload. Cancelled the upload.
    Connected a VPN onto Los Angeles. Uploaded the same file (and…

  16. We want you to improve the speed of the process./プロセスの速度向上をしてほしい

    Please improve the speed of each process, including the copy process.
    If the speed is slow when moving, copying, or deleting large amounts of data
    If the speed is slow, it will interfere with business.

  18. Downloading from websites.

    There should be a direct way to download a webpage into Box. I can directly download into Google Drive but not Box. Box requires a 2-step process. First I need to download to my device and then I can upload to Box.

  19. Copied photos do not carry any of the comments made on the original file.

    Comments that I have added to photos do not remain when I copy those photos to other folders within box. This is terrible as I now have to go through all of the copied photos for a second time and manually add all the comments that are associated with the original picture files.

    Please fix this.

  20. I want to be able to upload/stream data in real time to a secure Box folder

    Drone operators, Tik Tok users, event planners, wildlife professionals, military training heads, aircraft pilots -- off the top of my head, these are just a few great uses for streaming media files in real time directly to a secure Box folder. Omit the extra, less-secure step of capturing material on a mobile device (laptop, outdoor camera, phone, and so on), and then uploading it to Box. And never worry about the camera, phone, or other device holding your precious content failing or becoming lost before you've had a chance to view/upload the data.
