  1. Ability for users to set sorting preference

    Box is not longer default showing files by file name. This requires resorting of files every time I open a folder, which is hundred of times a day.

    Please enable users to set the default sorting order for folders or restore the prior defaults

  4. To be able to TAG documents using keyboard shortcut

    I would like to be able to assign shortcuts to functions in box both in the dashboard view and in the document review. Tagging a document takes too many steps and too many mouse clicks to do which defeats the purpose of using tags. A TAG icon on the right side menu along with the metadata icon would also be nice to have to be able to TAG documents faster.

  5. Default Shared link should be settable at the Folder level for all new links

    Request the ability to set the default shared link permissions at the folder level for all files/folders in that folder.

    Eg. We have a clients folder that we want to be able to share with clients outside of our organization. Many of our designers use the box desktop application and pull shared links by right-clicking and pulling directly from the finder. However, since our entire account's default link sharing permissions is only invitees, that link can't be used for external users without going to the browser and changing the link permissions manually for every file they pull. We want to…

  6. Big Sur - File copy

    Since updating to Big Sur when I drag a file from BOX drive to my desktop it MOVES the file, deleting it from BOX. In prior OS the file would be copied to my desktop, leaving the file on BOX as well. Please revert back to the previous behavior where dragging a file to the desktop makes a copy.

    Also, I no longer have a BOX folder on my desktop. I found this helpful as well.

  7. I want to be able to open a folder in File Explorer from Box.com

    I've used Dropbox previously, and there's a feature on the browser version that allows you to open a files containing folder in File Explorer on Windows or Finder on OSX. For Box, the only options to open something on your computer from the web version is with the file's native app. It would improve our workflow significantly if we were able to open a file folder on our computer from the Box.com browser.

    Thanks!

  8. Ability to approve comments in PDF view

    We work in a newsmagazine. Our PDF articles are commented before being published. Individual comments must be processed individually (sometimes a lot per article). Our revisors would like to be able to mark comments as done.

  9. Ability to select color of comment on document preview

    It'd be very useful to have the ability to select the color of a comment on a preview of a document. We have people leaving comments on certain areas of documents and having different colors would allow us to have an overview of comments per user (as we can't filter comments)

  10. More Options menu floats upwards

    Make the More Options menu self-conscious so it knows whether it's entirely visible. I wanted to download the first file and when I clicked on More Options in List View, the Download option was too high up, under the browser menu, where I couldn't access it. I have a screen print but your feedback doesn't allow it to be included (more room for improvement!).

  12. Make an Alias of Box Drive

    Hello,

    Previously, while using Box Sync on Mac OS, I was able to get quick access to the files by making an alias of the Box Sync folder.

    I was also able to set the Finder preferences so that "New Finder Windows Show the Box folder."

    However, it looks like neither of these are possible with Box Drive. Is there any way to make an easy shortcut to Box? The only option I've found is to place Box Drive in Launchpad.

  13. My invisible menu bar "Box" item on Mac Big Sur

    Best you change color of your menu bar item - on my Mac (Big Sur) the characters are white - and are invisible - maybe at least bluish or grayish? Ok?

  15. Notification when someone is editing a file

    Since we don't have an option to check-in/check-out of files, can you add a feature like Dropbox's badge which alerts a user when someone else is editing a file so we prevent any simultaneous version history/editing issues?

    Thanks for the suggestion. We’re actively researching in this area right now, so I’d love to collect any additional feedback you might have on use cases. For example: are you primarily looking for this notification on Preview? The files list? And in which applications – Web? Box Drive? Box mobile applications?

    Any additional information you provide will be much appreciated.

  16. Box Drive icon size

    Would like for the Box Drive icons to be bigger again. On the latest version of Box Drive 2.16, they are smaller and that makes it harder for them to determine whether or not files are locked.

  18. Sidebar is too dark

    Font needs to be legible in sidebar of Favorites. Currently the font is white when viewing list of all files, but font turns black when viewing a specific folder. It's too hard to read black words upon blue background. Please revise, thanks.

  20. *.jar files should not be opened like *.zip files

    I sometimes share software patches with customers via Box. The files are often .jar... This is the file extension for Java Archives, which are a type of .zip format. However, unlike .zip, they are not intended to be opened by users. The Box interface (desktop at least) previews the files/folders inside a selected .jar file. It is confusing to the user. Instead, these files should be handled as downloads only.
