  1. Support Microsoft linking

    Formulas referencing external source files are used in Excel models and when linking Excel to PowerPoint. The ability to change data in a source file and have the updated data flow through to any/all linked files stored in different locations does not work.

    The ”updating links” function does not work as the formulas are not referencing the source file in Box Cloud, but instead are mapped to a temp copy on the local machine

  3. Ability to adjust the search string, while maintaining the current set of filtering criteria.

    As users are searching and adjusting advanced search filters many of times they realize they need to adjust the original search request, and this can be quite cumbersome when they have to repeat the advanced search filter settings.

  4. Event stream missing a share_level or similar attribute

    By pulling the events with the API and comparing them, it appears both are missing a share_level or similar attribute. This attribute is also they can detect when users share files outside the company.

  5. Alias files/ links to files

    Oftentimes, a file has more than just one "right place" within a folder structure.
    For example, if you have a folder for the HR-department and a folder for the legal-team, both teams need to access the subfolder "employment contracts".
    On local Windows Explorer or Apple Finder it is possible to create alias-files that link to the "main-file", so you can access a file from multiple locations.
    Such a feature is not available in Box. Since it is cruicial for files that needs to be accessed from different locations/ teams, I am asking you to implement this feature.

    Thank you!

  6. Need the ability for users to rename shared folders that will not affect the name for other users.

    Honestly the entire functionality of the shared folders within box could use an upgrade. We switched from Dropbox to Box because we thought it had more features and better for business, but it blows my mind that we could rename shared folders in Dropbox on a user level, and it does not affect other users that share the folder, but Box won't allow that? Make it very difficult for individual users to customize their folder structure and such in a way that works for them. It's way to restrictive.

  7. Folder Under Retention Should Not Be Purged From Trash

    When a folder is deleted from trash that contains files under retention policy it causes issues because the files are no longer visible to the customer to recover them. This happens if the trash admin setting is set to purge all trash in a certain time period.

    Would it be possible to download more than 10,000 files in a single zip download? We have a use case where we need to download 30,000 files in a single zip.

  10. Password Mail

    When we share the open link with password, currently we need to create the new email and send the password separately.
    If we have the Email Icon to send password, we can work this on only Box.
    We would like to create the new Email icon to send email from Box web console.

  11. Department Folder Auto Provisioning and Updating

    When enterprise needs to provision and update department folders, Box Admins or each folder owners would need to manually create, configure and update folders according to the organizational structure and would need to manually invite/remove all the necessary collaborators.

    We would want to have a native feature in Box to allow such folder provisioning and updating by importing CSV file that contains folder names, structures and collaborators.

  13. Ability to restict folder view to only show folders the user owns

    Allow ability to restrict folder view to ONLY those folders which the user owns. Either a separate view or something like a checkbox to enable/disable the restriction.

    For example, a user is leaving the company and wants to transfer ownership of their folders to another user. There is no easy way to see what folders you own. With hundreds of folders it could take a long time to find the ones you know to transfer them.

  14. secondary domain

    Add the ability to resolve a second or multiple number of subdomains to one box instance.
    ie; companymain.app.box.com AND companytwo.app.box.com would both resolve to one managed instance. This would be useful for using shared links and having a drodown or option to use a different subdomain for either a department or umbrella organization housing data for various organizations.

  16. Global ability to lock all files that are opened

    We want all files "locked" when opened so that any other user would be notified that the file is opened by another user and they can look in "read-only" view.

  18. Multi-user and automatic uploads

    Make box access suitable for multi user computers and have mechanism for automatically uploading data.

    Use case: Lab equipment used by multiple users producing large amounts of data, automatically uploading this to box so as to limit required user interaction and keep local storage in check. Modern equipment can produce large amounts of data and being able to upload this automatically would help with data management. Requiring user intervention to manage their data is less practical with a very large user base so automating this process would again help with this process.

  20. PLEASE bring back the pre-selected Share link

    PLEASE re-add the pre-selected text highlighting to the Share popup box weblink.

    Previously in Box, when you tapped the "share" button it brought up a highlighted, pre-selected web link that could simply be copied (Ctl-C) and pasted. You did not need to select this link, it was already highlighted for you, all you had to do was click Ctl-C (go to email), then Ctl-P to paste the link.

    Since the update, you can set so that the link appears, but this link is no longer pre- selected – you have to physically go to that link and select it with…
