  1. Allow default sorting to "Favorites" and created "Collections" so that they appear alphabetically.

    If you have dozens or hundreds of folders in your "Favorites" and they are not sorted alphabetically, then it is nearly impossible to find your subject folder. Just make Favorites and Collections default sort alphabetically or give us the choice to set the default. Other people may want the last visited folder to be at the top, but still others may want to see it alphabetically. Please give us the option to do so as a default treatment.

  2. 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.

  3. Enhance flexibility to expiration of Public Link

    When a Public Link expires, the link is disable and not traceable. Often time endusers do not know what file/folder it was. Especially, when a receiver of the link was an external user like customer, we would like at least to identify which one it was internally. So I would like an option to automatically update Public Link to Company Link or Collaborator only link upon expiration.

  4. Keep Company Branding Banner with new Box Web Experience and Collections

    One of the reasons I really like Box (enterprise version), was that my users felt like we were using a 'custom to our firm' cloud-product. The beta version of your new Box Web Experience and Collections removes the company branded banner across the top; instead leaving only our logo placed next to my profile picture in the corner. Doesn't look customized enough; instead I'm one of a thousand companies using it. The green side bar running down the left of the screen is too much - reminds me of an animated cartoon. When released, I hope the ability to keep…

  5. Allow bulk actions to be interrupted (such as copy/move/restore/delete)

    When users copy / move / restore / delete a large number of items, we want them to be able to cancel if they notice a mistake along the way.
    Currently, when processing a large number of items in Box, we need to wait until the process is completed even if we notice a mistake.
    When processing large numbers of items, processing may require several days.
    During that time, folders and files are locked.
    Please make it possible to interrupt the process on the way.

  6. login page Customization

    The login page is very confusing for our external collaborators. Despite the creation of "How to log on to Box" with pictures, external collaborators still click on the wrong link as the "Continue" button (for our managed users) is very large compare to the small font link for the external collaborators. The natural instinct is to click on "Continue" which gives the external collaborator an error since they are not part of the "managed users" and will not be able to SSO to our Box. Our staff is having to help our external customer on regular basis.
    Can the login…

  7. Only allow users to set shared link expiration up to the Enterprise setting limit

    When setting up a shared link in Box, we want the user to be able to set the expiration up to the Enterprise setting, but not beyond the Enterprise setting.

    A shared link with a shorter expiration time is more secure but less convenient. The security level varies depending on the content, so it would be desirable for users to be able to set an expiration date below the Enterprise setting.

    Managed users set expiration dates beyond their Enterprise settings, allowing content to be accessed for unintended periods of time.

    Thanks for your feedback, we are exploring requirements to provide a “confirmation” both for the recipient and for the submitter. In the meanwhile a user can use Relay Lite to assign a task to a particular user when a file upload comes in OR use the folder notification settings to be notified when a file upload takes place. Hope this helps!

  10. Dark Mode Option

    I think it would be nice to be able to either turn on a Dark Mode when I'm in a browser at Box.com or, have an option to select a different background color.
    Just one of those folk who have a time with bright white light ..

    Thank you for your suggestion. This is not currently planned for development. We will let you know if anything changes. Please continue to share your use cases in the comments.

  11. Send in-app notification for failed bulk move/copy.

    Box Notification on account (not email notification) for failed moves.

    When copying or moving a large numbers of files, sometimes those moves fail.

    We would like to be notified about files that failed to copy or move

  12. Ability to track access log of folder shared link

    We have access stats at file level, but there is no way to check if a folder is accessed via shared links. It would be nice to get counts on how many times a folder was accessed via shared links

  13. Extend display time for the undo option

    After moving a file/folder, a prompt appears to allow you to select "Undo", but we find that the prompt appears for a short time and often we find it impossible to undo the action.

    We would like to see a longer display time for the undo option.

  14. Request a file link for Editors

    Many of my customers are requesting for Editors to have the ability to generate request a file links. Owners and Co-Owners have very omniscient capabilities for folder configurations that Editors may not need (nor do the Owners want them to have) but because Editors do much of the editing and information creation/modification, it would be helpful if they could have the ability to request content.

  15. Add an option to File Request only for managed users

    We would like to gather files from internal managed users avoiding spoofing. Currently, one way is to use collaboration as uploader permission but uploader can still see file name each other where multiple users are collaborated. We need to make users authenticate and do not want to let them see information of other's uploaded files.

  17. For files, folders and users name, we need to use U+10000 - U+10FFFF in Unicode characters.

    Today, we can only use BMP in Unicode characters on Box.

    However, Windows OS supports many Unicode characters(eg, emoji), besides BMP, so this can be a problem in data migration from a file servers to Box.

    Also, in CJK, Unicode characters other than BMP are used in personal name, so we consider this to be a big issue.

    We hope to have many Unicode characters available everywhere on Box.

  18. There should be a way to copy or clone File Request form templates to new directories instead of resetting to the default template.

    Our department is using File Request links on our Box Enterprise account to provide donors with a simple submission form to upload digital materials for our collections.

    We would like to set up one folder for each potential donor who will be submitting digital collections for us to review and process. (This will make it much easier for us to manage submissions, to review them for security, and to track them for procesing.) However, we also need to customize the File Request submission form for directories to include a standard boilerplate of instructions and to request a description of the…

  19. Custom Terms of Service - Prompting External users to accept terms after change to terms

    It has been noted that if the text of theCustom Terms of Service is changed for internal users, internal users are prompted to re-accept the new terms. However for external users, if the text of the terms is changed, the external users is not prompted to accept the new terms until they are invited to a new folder. Can the external users be prompted to accept the new terms once the text is changed?
