  1. 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.

  4. FTP should support other authentication methods other than simple password

    One of the most important things to understand is whether auth support / options match up with real life requirements and usage patterns

  5. Add ability to batch rename multiple files

    I'd like to be able to select all contents of a folder (ex. images taken by a particular photographer at an event) and standardize all file names (ex. EventPhotographer Name (1), EventPhotographer Name (2),...)
    This is simple to do in Windows Explorer, but I really do not want to download and then re-upload for something so minor!

  6. Include a Disable Preview Option

    I've been using BOX for years and the only complaint is from my clients who download from my shared links. Almost 90% of users complain that they get the message
    "We're sorry, this file type is not currently supported."

    I understand from your viewpoint but from our viewpoint, we dont require such preview because our files are .zip, .rar, .7z, etc.

    So PLEASE enable some option where I can enable or disable the auto-preview.
    Remember, you guys are a cloud storage 1st solution. My clients should be able to download anything as simply as possible without getting confused about some…

  7. Improve management of pending invitations via API

    As we continue to build and customize the collaboration mechanism we found it difficult to manage pending invitations. When calling your API api.box.com/2.0/folders<folder_id>/collaborations it returns approved collaborators in the “accessibleby” object but when it return PENDING collaborators the “accessibleby” object is null, but there’s status “pending” on this collaborator. We would imagine it would capture the email address of that pending collaborator. Seeing this is capable in your public domain to show the pending collaborator with an email address would be very useful to create modules to manage pending collaborators (e.g. resending the invitation, update the email address,…

  8. 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.

    not planned  ·  Aaron Verstraete responded

    Would you provide additional detail? The request looks like a mix of a few different concepts. Seems unlikely we will have an API that returns everything as asked.

    Can you potentially break these down? Seems the get subfolders request could be considered.

  11. 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.

  12. Remove File Size Limit

    File sizes only continue to grow as video quality improves due to better technology. Our video teams have some files that are 700 GB or more. We are unable to use Box as a backup solution because of the file size limit.

  13. Ability to download more than 10 concurrent zip downloads at once

    Would it be possible to download more than 10 zip downloads concurrently at once? We have a use case where more than 10 zips could be concurrently downloaded at once.

  14. Allow multi-file downloads greater than 20GB by streaming as gzipped tar

    Downloading multiple files via the Box web interface is currently limited to a total file size of 20GB. I assume this is due to needing server-size storage to create a temporary zip file for the download. If, instead, there were an option to download the selected files in gzipped tar format, there would be no-need for additional server-side storage (because both tar and gzip are streaming formats) and there would be no need to cap the download size.

  16. 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.

  17. BOX should give us more options to work with subfolder access

    When you give the Viewer access to a group of people in the root of a structure, you could work with subfolders by 1) removing some people from access specific subfolders or 2) changing the type of access specific person would have. For example,
    1) I have specific content that should be restricted but need to manage it in a single place. If I try to remove a person from a subfolder, it will remove this person from the whole structure.
    2) I can create a root folder called "Teams" and give everyone the viewer access to it (since the…

  18. Cascading Metadata - applying policy should stay in affect so future value updates cascade without force.

    Metadata cascade policy should stay in effect and push future value changes down (as per policy) - until the policy is removed.

    Futher only the value(s) updated should be pushed down, not the full set of metadata values..

  19. Folder Integrations not available on All Files unless user is owner

    We have an App Integration for Folders; Quick Scan. If a user has access to upload to a folder they can use Quick Scan from the Folder's More Actions, Integrations menu to scan a document directly into the folder.

    It appears, if a user is the Owner of the folder, the Integration to Quick Scan appears when accessing the Folder's More Options from the All Files area. But, if the user is not the Owner, no Folder Integrations appear. The Folder Integrations always appear if the folder More Options is accessed from a sub-folder, i.e. not the All Files area.

  20. Use file size limits of Box Enterprise account when free users edit/upload to enterprise folders

    Ability for free/lite users who are external collaborators in a folder to edit/upload content into a managed folder, even if the file size is above the free/lite limit. For example: Company A has an enterprise Box license and Company B does not, but uses free/lite accounts to collaborate in folders with Company A. When Company B needs to collaborate/edit large files in Company A’s folder, they can only do so if the size of the file is below the free/lite account limit. For large files, they have to download the file, edit it on their desktop, then email back to…
