  1. Folder transfer takes too long - user loses access

    Currently when content is transferred from one owner to another owner, collaborators lose access to the transferred content until the move is complete. Depending on the size of the move it can be an extended period until collaborators can access the content

  2. 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.

  4. 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?

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

  6. Add Relay Trigger action for Folder Metadata

    Currently you can trigger on the metadata values for a file. Can we add the same trigger for a metadata change on a folder?

    Situation: Parent folder metadata change should cause an action that affects all children. i.e. move the folder and all children to another location.

  7. Shared Links - Allow Linking to Specific Page of Document

    Example: SlideShare allows you to create a shared link that opens the slides up directly into a specific slide. In this case, slide 10: http://www.slideshare.net/kaz.goto/ss-65352833/10

    Box Use Case: I want to give you a link to a multi-slide/document file, but I want you to start on page 5 first.

  8. Request to add Chunk Downloads, download resume feature

    When a large file fails to download, users will have to start the download from the beginning all over again. We would like a retry/resume feature.

  9. Add "additional_details" to events endpoint for MOVE, COPY, RENAME events

    Presently, security & events reports run from the admin console include "change details" for these events - essentially, what the prior state was before the event occurred. The events endpoint does not include these details.

    Request to add this to the additional_details of an event as it's reported through the admin events stream for the MOVE, COPY, and RENAME events.

    If RENAME, show previous name of the folder
    If MOVE/COPY, show previous parent of the folder

  10. Bulk Download Speed Increase

    We're attempting to download files over 10 GB using the bulk download feature but it is taking longer than it would take if they were to download each file individually. It appears we are hitting a limit to which the bulk download feature is actually improving their speeds.

  11. 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.

  12. Email Upload Limit

  13. Including the original path to a file that was deleted.

    It would make it easier to identify what files need to be restored if the original full path of the file was included in the trash folder and that information could be used in a sort/search.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Allow me to link to other folders and files in box

    I can create a bookmark to another folder in box, but the experience and visualisation of these is not useful - links to folders get lost in the file list.

    Bookmarks to other folders in box, should be listed as a folder, not a file, perhaps with a different icon to show they are linked folders rather than hierarchic folders.

  18. 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...

  19. Add "Last Accessed Date" as a file property

    Many cleanup/archival processes could be run via the API if this date was quickly accessible. Currently, one needs to look at events or reports to determine this date which is not feasible at scale for reports and Events API only goes back one year.
