  1. 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?

  2. 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.

    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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. Simplify "File Request" window

    I have users on my team still using ShareFile to specifically "request files" from external people because the process is simpler. Three key suggestions for the Box "File request" feature:
    1) Can you streamline the pop-up window to focus on the "link" versus the embed widget link. 2) Expose the option/checkbox of the requestor to receive an email when the content is uploaded.
    3) Allow the requestor to adjust the expiration date. Default would be tied to the admin link share policies

    Thanks!

    Thanks for your feedback! We are actively working on request 1 and 3 and plan to deliver it in beta this quarter. Request 2 can be accessed via folder settings today but we will research this further as well. Thanks!

  14. Ability to check when user's password will be expired on their end

    Currently users have no way to know when user's password will be expired on their end.
    And then, Box doesn't send any notification to users in advance, so it likely lead to expire user's password.

  17. Ability to export list of sub-folders when users select a parent folder.

    Customer collaborate with external venders to share files and folders. In order to manage which folders and files received from external venders, the customer has to keep track records by using other system. Currently, users enter which date they received from which venders by manually. It is very helpful to export list of sub-folders in csv format to import this file to another system.

  18. 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

  19. Add "Dimensions" info under "File properties"

    To be able to see the dimensions of an image is an extremely valuable feature for designers to review and "QC" all of the marketing assets without having to download all the files.
