  2. 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

  3. 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?

  4. FTPS access for collaborators to a subfolder rather than through root level credentials

    Use Case: Research studies using radiology images that come in large image sets from tools like MRI scanners which can have hundreds to thousands of images which make it impossible or impractical to use the web interface.

    However, they are still external collaborators who should have the ability to send files.

  5. Direct DICOM upload endpoint desired

    Our admin would rather not use the DICOM import tool to upload DICOM images to use with the Viewer (and they don't have a PAC server). We're also uploading non-DICOM files that are relevant to the study, so having two separate UIs for an upload is inconvenient.

    Thank you for this request. However, we will not be focusing on this feature this year. We will revisit this with additional demand.

  6. Single File Collaboration - Preview Permission

    The current implementation of Single File Collaboration is lacking the Preview permission.

    As organizations transition to the single file model, the functionality should align to the folder permission model as closely as possible to maintain ease of use and consistency within the application.

    The current behavior is to set the permission to Editor and require the user to navigate to multiple windows to downgrade rights to Viewer. The Viewer role still allows content to be downloaded to a local machine.

    We request Preview rights so that functionality like Watermarking can still be leveraged and to minimize data spillage.

  9. Standardize or lock down naming conventions

    The ability to set restrictions on file naming conventions would greatly help admins query their data.

  10. Break waterfall permissions

    Allow for restricted permissions within a shared folder (so permissions are not inherited from the parent folder)

  11. Ability to have different settings for shared links for folders and shared links for files

    We would like to set mandatory global setting to disable folder shared links after 30 days, but would like users be able to customize individual file shared links.

    I think this would be better addressed with platform elements. This way, you can build out the exact functionality you seek.

  13. Trashed items: include details about the deleter

    When a user makes a GET call for all trashed items, the response does not include details (name/user ID) of the user who trashed each item. This is inconsistent with the Web App view of a user's trash. The Web App view includes the name of the item deleter.

  14. FTP not available to external users for Enterprise accounts.

    Currently FTP for Box is only available to Business and Enterprise accounts for bulk migration of data. It is not available for Personal accounts (Free or Pro).

    This is problematic for Enterprise users that have external vendors, partners, customers (collaborators) that need to upload a large data set to their Enterprise account through FTP.

    Since these external collaborators are Free users, they do not have access to FTP but are still collaborating with us.

    REQUEST: Add support for FTP uploads for external collaborators that are specifically collaborating with a paying Enterprise Box account?

    This is not currently planned. We will reconsider this with additional demand.

  15. Introduce a combination of version labels and version dependent permissions.

    Compared to legacy ECM systems, versioning in box is limited to data states over time. There is no notion of a document lifecycle attached to a certain version (WIP, draft, published).

    The mandatory check in/out of legacy ECM makes the system very user unfriendly. However, it would be nice if we could somehow label certain versions. The list of labels could either be fixed, or user definable.

    If we combine this feature with a new permission: "view documents with status published", we could now have one directory where people work on their documents, but external people would only see the…

  16. Usage Logs - Better Reporting when Shared Link Permissions are Changed

    Right now you can see WHEN a user changed the value of a shared link (closed to open for example) but not to what, so if a link was changed, we have to guess as to what level of access. This seems like a gap security wise and may lead to us shutting down shared links.

    This is not planned for the short-term roadmap. We will reconsider with additional customer demand.

  18. The ability to perform advanced searches despite having KeySafe enabled.

    They are open to, similar to the KeySafe concept, having a way to plug Box search into their own index.

  19. Option to Show Full Folder Hierarchy when Added Only to Subfolder

    Right now, when collaborators are added to a folder, they are not able to see the folder hierarchy that is above the level at which they were added. This is great in many situations. However, there are various scenarios where customers would like users to have the 'full view' of the folder hierarchy above.
