  1. Enable version history disabling at the folder level

    Our business requires the ability to disable version history for some clients who require that no past versions of files exist. We need the ability to disable versioning for part of the business, while retaining it for other parts. We can't be alone in this...

  2. Ability to restore folder structures to point-in-time

    Similar to version history, we would like the ability to select a folder, folder structure, or subset of folders/files and restore all content therein to a specific point in time. OneDrive recently released a histogram with a timeline slider feature allowing admins to restore select content to a specific period in time. For users moving from on-prem or used to backups, this provides confidence in giving the right access levels to users to get work done with the ability to revert content/structures if needed in case of accidental moved/edited or corrupted content.

  3. Add the ability to turn off auditing

    Add the ability to turn off auditing at the folder level as and administrator function this would eliminate a need for products like Diligent

  4. Include activities & comments in the search index

    Activities and comments on the files are something very useful to collaborate on documents. It would be great if there was a way to include the content of the activities & comments in the search index.

  6. Ability to set different permissions based on where the user is accessing from (i.e. either from inside or outside of the company network)

    We want the ability to control permission based on where the user is accessing from. For example, if the user accesses from inside the company network (IP range) they shall have editor permission. But if user accesses from outside, they shall have preview only permission.

  8. Allow for one-off permissions changes to individuals in a group.

    When inviting a group to a folder, we would like to have the ability to give a different permission to just a specific member within the group. Currently if a group is invited to a folder, all members will get the same permissions. Te only workaround is invite the indiv user separately. However, this is not an officially supported functionality of Box.

  9. Audio watermarking

    Either by a fingerprint, something one can't hear, but can be decoded. Or by inserting some spoken words (custom mp3) every 20-30 seconds.

  10. Enable SSO through OAuth2 and not only SAML 2.0

    We use an in-house IdP. This IdP leverages OAuth2 OpenID. It does not use SAML 2.0

    Therefore we need Box to have the capability to enable SSO through OAuth2 and not only SAML 2.0

  11. The 'Edit User' event does not show which parameter has been edited

    Any changes to a user that are displayed in the User Activity report or event log just display 'Edit User'. This means that changes such as name, email, device pinning, enable box sync, share contacts etc. just display as 'Edit User'.

  12. Allow for creation of custom permission levels (roles).

    We want to share files to an external collaborator, but want to restrict the download and allow editing.

    Request: Add new custom roles and assign them preview, link, edit, and they would have to use our Office 365 to modify within Box?

  13. We need a Box role that does not allow the "view item list in folder" function.

    There is a use case where external people are using Box to upload content. The folder where they upload in is a shared folder. Even with the role of uploader, people still can see what others uploaded.

    Currently we worked around this problem with an automation that moves the file as soon as it is uploaded.

    Can you build another permission level, or a selector for disabling the invite items in folder capability ?

    This suggestion is not under consideration for the current roadmap.

  15. Decouple the requirement for a SINGLE UNIQUE email address as a primary dependency for accessing the Box service.

    Practical example: Slack allows the same email to appear in their system multiples times, accessing separate Enterprise/Team sites. See login here, which prompts for the unique URL for login.

  16. Request for a web page that better captures domains AND IP ranges for Box, including an XML feed to subscribe, changelog, etc

    Can Box emulate Microsoft and create a web page like this. Originally (about 3 years back) this page was bare bones and just contained services, urls and IP ranges. Network admins had to scrape the page to grab the IP ranges they needed and use IFTTT. They have since added an XML feed and a way to subscribe to changes. They post updates once a month or so before they go into effect. Every bit of info on this page (including placement of links) has evolved based on user/admin feedback. https://support.office.com/en-us/article/office-365-urls-and-ip-address-ranges-8548a211-3fe7-47cb-abb1-355ea5aa88a2

  19. Viewer does NOT see Download button in Context Menu ('...' menu) nor in Action Bar when multiple items are selected

    .Given that Viewers have the ability to download watermarked files, the Download button should appear everywhere as normal. This ticket is to add the Download button in the following two locations for Viewers:
    * File list context menu ('...' menu)
    * Action bar when performing a multi-select

  20. Allow authentication across multiple Box applications through one "passport"

    There are many ways in which to authenticate to Box through Mobile, Sync, Drive, Web etc. Is it possible to have a single unified check wherein we could then open any end-point for Box to authenticate?
