    Using groups will allow adding more collaborators to a folder and is our recommended approach for these types of situations.

    This is not currently planned. We would be happy to review with additional use case data. Can you share the problem you’re trying to solve?

  3. Customization of error message in Azure

    With other providers, it is possible to customize the error message that users get when they are invited to create a Box account without being part of a security group and having auto-rolling on.

    As the error message creates a lot of confusion, it would be great if we could replace the message with something customized in order to give clear instructions to the users as to what steps need to be taken to create a new Box account with that particular email domain.

    Thank you for your submission. However, this does not have enough demand in order to be prioritized.

    We will reconsider with additional use cases.

  4. Editor Only Permissions Access

    We are looking for a way to limit a user so she can not add new documents to a folder but is able to edit documents already in the folder.

    The granular nature of your platform is so fantastic, and this nuance would make it even better. After all, just because I share a folder populated with documents that I want edited by other people doesn't not mean I want those same editors to bloat my folders with extraneous files.

    There is strong use-case for this. Call it the Edit Only privilege.

    Thank you for the request! I believe this would add to the complexity of the product without providing wide enough benefit. I’m happy to review further use cases and demand in the comments.

  5. Ability to restrict Uploader permissions from being able to see file names in folders

    We have folders where different companies can submit content via the Uploader collaborator permission. Because there are different companies submitting into the same folder, we do not want collaborators to see what others have uploaded.

    This is not a virtual deal room/bid room in this specific case.

    We will not make a special collaborator role for this. Our recommended way of doing this would be to use the Upload Widget.

    We would like to see additional detail and use cases before considering this for implementation.

  7. Error message to transfer ownership when only admins are allowed to create or delete level 1 folders

    With the option to restrict folder creation at level 1 to admin, if the admin give the ownership to a user and then this user try to give the ownership to another user, she can perform the actions and finally get the message "There was a problem making xxx the owner of the item. Please try again or refresh the page."

    The message should be revamped or the user should not be able to start giving ownership.

  14. Extend box' capabilities with client protocols.

    In banking a lot of external content is accessed: reports from Bloomberg, other financial information, etc. Most of these pieces of information reside on FTP / SFTP / FTPS / Webdav systems.

    It would be nice if box could be extended in such a way that users have the possibility to access this content from within box. The idea is to have a new folder type (external content), which can then be configured with a connection string, user name and password. Users could then just browse those external sources from within box.

    Ideally a copy and paste should also be…

  17. ITEM_RENAME event should include both old and new names for folder/file

    Current the rename item event only shows the new name.

  18. Add a way to find out whether a collaboration is external or internal for the GET collaboration endpoint.

    When running a collaboration report as an admin you are able to find out Collaborator Type. The GET collaboration endpoint should be able to do the same.

  19. Request for an Content Folder API call to support passing to it a folder path and return the unique folder ID

    We would like to be able to retrieve folder ID directly via API call by passing in the folder path as a variable.

    So for example if the custom program knows the folder virtual path (/folder A/folder 123/folder X) the API call would return the correct folder ID for "folder X".

    Folder path is pretty fragile as names change frequently, so I don’t think this is something we’d want to do.
