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

  3. 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

  4. Add the optional message text on Shared Link Email to the event in the API

    When a user clicks the email button the Share Link screen they have the ability to enter an optional message to the person they are sending the link too. This optional message is not captured anywhere in the Box system or event stream. The only way to capture a record of this optional message is with the Compliance Email Archive. Customer would like for this optional message be captured in the event stream so 3rd party compliance software can capture that information. This is an issue in regulated industries like Wealth Management in Financial Services that require logging ALL potential…

  5. Ability to see (and if permitted, restore) deleted files

    Box currently does not have the ability to show deleted files in a particular folder. Only the owner and the user who deleted files will see them in Trash but not by folder. With large numbers of files in multiple folders, this becomes quite unmanageable quickly and relying on the folder owner to restore files is unnecessarily restrictive.

    Folders should have an option to see deleted files and if permitted (editor or higher, or a separate permission) allow users other than the owner and the user who deleted files to restore them.

  6. preview print

    Allow the permission to just "view" & "print" files.
    (However, you manage to do this)

    ...Maybe it's as simple as having a tick button for a Previewer to also allow printing

    ...Currently, a Previewer can view and not print,

    ...a Previewer/Uploader can currently Preview and Upload (Print is meant to work here but is currently not an option despite permission tables saying it should)

    ...a Viewer can currently Preview, Print and Download.

  8. Request to increase item count per folder limit

    We would like to be able to add more than 15,000 items per folder. We are working with multi-level folders structures within our environment and anticipate having more than 15,000 items within the first level of their subfolders.

  9. 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

  11. 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…

  13. separate owned file/folders view from all files/folders view

    We need the ability when viewing a users list of files and folders to show only content owned by user. Right now files that have any collaboration at all do not show differently if owned by user or not. Ideally, we could toggle a view filter to show only files/folders owned by user if needed.

  15. Single File Collaboration - Preview Permission

    The current implementation of Single File Collaboration is lacking the Preview permission.

    As organizations transition to the single file model, the functionality should align to the folder permission model as closely as possible to maintain ease of use and consistency within the application.

    The current behavior is to set the permission to Editor and require the user to navigate to multiple windows to downgrade rights to Viewer. The Viewer role still allows content to be downloaded to a local machine.

    We request Preview rights so that functionality like Watermarking can still be leveraged and to minimize data spillage.

  17. Trashed items: include details about the deleter

    When a user makes a GET call for all trashed items, the response does not include details (name/user ID) of the user who trashed each item. This is inconsistent with the Web App view of a user's trash. The Web App view includes the name of the item deleter.

  18. Receive notification when transfer of content is completed

    When deleting and transferring content to another user and an error is thrown, it is not clear to the user when all the content has successfully been moved due to the error message thrown.

    We would like to know when all the content has finally completed so we can delete the user without any concerns.
