  2. Increase maximum amount of files per user

    Current limit is 1,000,000 files per user. We need over 10M files per user for our use case.

  3. Fix Illegal Characters Automatically When Uploading Via FTP

    FTP uploads currently allow illegal filenames or unsupported characters in filenames. This triggers sync and file errors in Box Drive.

    Thank you for your request. However, this is not something we will be focusing on this year. We will revisit this with additional demand.

  4. Audio watermarking

    Either by a fingerprint, something one can't hear, but can be decoded. Or by inserting some spoken words (custom mp3) every 20-30 seconds.

  5. Ability to white label the url from [company].box.com to box.[company].com to see white clients have blocked box

    Some of our clients office networks (law firms) block box.com and because of browser cross site restrictions, they can't actually tell it's being blocked so its difficult to handle smoothly

    Not planned at this time. We will revisit this with additional demand.

  6. The 'Edit User' event does not show which parameter has been edited

    Any changes to a user that are displayed in the User Activity report or event log just display 'Edit User'. This means that changes such as name, email, device pinning, enable box sync, share contacts etc. just display as 'Edit User'.

  7. Allow co-owners (not just owners) to extend auto-expiration date for external collaborators.

    The primary reason why we have not enabled the auto-expiration for Collaborators is because only folder Owners will receive notifications of expiring collaborators and links, and only Owners will have the ability to extend the expiration date. In our instance, the Primary BoxAdmin account owns all content (and users are not allowed to create root-level folders, they're only co-owners).

    If this ability were extended to Co-Owners, then this enterprise setting would be feasible for us. It has to be up to the co-owners to receive the notifications and determine whether or not to extend the sharing (since they have the…

  8. We need a Box role that does not allow the "view item list in folder" function.

    There is a use case where external people are using Box to upload content. The folder where they upload in is a shared folder. Even with the role of uploader, people still can see what others uploaded.

    Currently we worked around this problem with an automation that moves the file as soon as it is uploaded.

    Can you build another permission level, or a selector for disabling the invite items in folder capability ?

  9. Ability to restore folder structures to point-in-time

    Similar to version history, we would like the ability to select a folder, folder structure, or subset of folders/files and restore all content therein to a specific point in time. OneDrive recently released a histogram with a timeline slider feature allowing admins to restore select content to a specific period in time. For users moving from on-prem or used to backups, this provides confidence in giving the right access levels to users to get work done with the ability to revert content/structures if needed in case of accidental moved/edited or corrupted content.

  10. Allow for one-off permissions changes to individuals in a group.

    When inviting a group to a folder, we would like to have the ability to give a different permission to just a specific member within the group. Currently if a group is invited to a folder, all members will get the same permissions. Te only workaround is invite the indiv user separately. However, this is not an officially supported functionality of Box.

  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. 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.

  15. The ability to add an auto-expiration on specific external collaborators access to a specified file or folder.

    I would like an Expiration option date picker to be added to the Collaboration Invite window. This will allow our company to let a user privilege expire without us being forced to expire by auto-deleting a folder, or sharing a link that expires but can also be shared with others in the meantime.

  16. Decouple the requirement for a SINGLE UNIQUE email address as a primary dependency for accessing the Box service.

    Practical example: Slack allows the same email to appear in their system multiples times, accessing separate Enterprise/Team sites. See login here, which prompts for the unique URL for login.

  17. Request for a web page that better captures domains AND IP ranges for Box, including an XML feed to subscribe, changelog, etc

    Can Box emulate Microsoft and create a web page like this. Originally (about 3 years back) this page was bare bones and just contained services, urls and IP ranges. Network admins had to scrape the page to grab the IP ranges they needed and use IFTTT. They have since added an XML feed and a way to subscribe to changes. They post updates once a month or so before they go into effect. Every bit of info on this page (including placement of links) has evolved based on user/admin feedback. https://support.office.com/en-us/article/office-365-urls-and-ip-address-ranges-8548a211-3fe7-47cb-abb1-355ea5aa88a2

  18. Allow authentication across multiple Box applications through one "passport"

    There are many ways in which to authenticate to Box through Mobile, Sync, Drive, Web etc. Is it possible to have a single unified check wherein we could then open any end-point for Box to authenticate?

  20. Enable SSO through OAuth2 and not only SAML 2.0

    We use an in-house IdP. This IdP leverages OAuth2 OpenID. It does not use SAML 2.0

    Therefore we need Box to have the capability to enable SSO through OAuth2 and not only SAML 2.0
