  1. Ability to access box when email is updated and user is signed via SSO

    that when a client is using SSO and it sees an email update that it will update the email address in Box. Reference Case #2497722.

    e.g. john.doe@company.com has a box account via sso, the box account is under john.doe@company.com. When John changes name to john.doe-smith@company.com, the user cannot access Box because the Box account did not automatically update with the user.

  3. 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.

  4. File uploads are extremely slow.

    File uploads are extremely slow. For example, a group of 3 x 20Mb files might take an entire day to upload on a 5mb.s connection. This has happened in the past 3-4 weeks.
    I found the root cause of it. I am in New Zealand and redirected to the Tokyo server, which is very very slow. I verified that this upload path is an issue thus:
    Tried to upload a 20Mb file using browser (via Tokyo) - 2 hrs later the file was at 20% upload. Cancelled the upload.
    Connected a VPN onto Los Angeles. Uploaded the same file (and…

  5. 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.

  6. Pull all embed widget links from folder of documents

    My company uses a lot of analytics dashboards. I have the need to connect a large folder of documents with the dashboards, and am unable to copy and past 10000+ widget links in order to give previews.

  7. version for multiple files

    return version to a date of all file in a folder, or all selected files.
    Today is possible to do this only if I open each file and select version, with a lot of clicks

  8. I would like the ability to lock down the sharing permissions of certain folders.

    The other day, a user “mistakenly” deleted the “All” group from the sharing permissions of our main folder share called “Clients”.

  10. Convert comment to task

    Comments in Box Preview are helpful, but sometimes need to be able to be converted into tasks. Rather than creating a new entry, it would be helpful to right-click or use a dropdown to convert the existing comment into a task automatically.

  11. 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.

  12. 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. Downloading from websites.

    There should be a direct way to download a webpage into Box. I can directly download into Google Drive but not Box. Box requires a 2-step process. First I need to download to my device and then I can upload to Box.

  15. Copied photos do not carry any of the comments made on the original file.

    Comments that I have added to photos do not remain when I copy those photos to other folders within box. This is terrible as I now have to go through all of the copied photos for a second time and manually add all the comments that are associated with the original picture files.

    Please fix this.

  16. I want to be able to upload/stream data in real time to a secure Box folder

    Drone operators, Tik Tok users, event planners, wildlife professionals, military training heads, aircraft pilots -- off the top of my head, these are just a few great uses for streaming media files in real time directly to a secure Box folder. Omit the extra, less-secure step of capturing material on a mobile device (laptop, outdoor camera, phone, and so on), and then uploading it to Box. And never worry about the camera, phone, or other device holding your precious content failing or becoming lost before you've had a chance to view/upload the data.

  17. Fix file/folder size, counts, dates and storage

    I'd like to preface this by saying that this is a bug that needs to be fixed, not an idea. Even so, Box suggested we post this here to get others to chime in and say that this should be fixed.

    This is a problem that's been around for at least 1.5 years.

    Often, when an account's folders and files are transferred to someone else, the account from which the data was transferred still shows something greater than 0 bytes owned. This becomes a problem for deleting that user, because we can't be sure if the transfer worked, and we…

    We are working on an improvement here that will correct these file/folder counts, dates within 24 hours and usually much faster, and plan to ship it later this year. This is the first of a few planned improvements.

  18. 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.

  19. Moving shared folders should be simple and not involve changing ownership

    Many people in my organization share folders with me. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM ends up in my top-level directory. But some should be in one folder and some in another. I should be able to move any shared folder, even ones I am not a collaborator on, to ANY place in my directory structure without changing the physical storage space and without worrying about ownership. Why should the sharer have a right to clutter up my top-level directory with so many folders? It's pages and pages of stuff on the web interface. Since the real data is physically stored…

  20. 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.
