  1. Folder Lock from Web UI

    Currently, Folder Lock can be configured only through API. We would like to be able to configure it on Web UI, e.g. Folder Settings.
    Folder Lock function is very useful, but not used widely. Probably it's because API is not very friendly for some users.

  2. Selective Bulk Trash Restoration

    Enable the ability to further filter trash folders by folder path and date deleted and perform a bulk operation to restore affected files. Alternatively allow a view to see a full list of all deleted items, rather than the smaller pages.

    The current bulk method is to restore all deleted items in trash. In organizations where the trash retention is set to never auto-delete, trashed files are maintained indefinitely which can create a very large trash folder for users. We do not want to restore files and folders for all time, just a select period.

    Example:
    Files below a specific…

  3. Option to remove visible file version tag

    We'd like the ability to hide the file version tag both from the list view and preview. The box version does not match up with our own versioning thus creating confusion for end users

  4. Add "Open in Box Drive" function

    Add an "Open in Box Drive" UI option for the web app.
    This solves the problem of identifying a file or folder in the web app, wanting to work on the file or folder in Box Drive, and needing to leave the Web App to navigate through several steps to find that file in Box Drive.

    Ideally this should only be active on hosts that have Box Drive installed; it could be not presented, or disabled, on other hosts.

    For hosts that have Box Drive installed, this would allow:
    1. When activated for a folder, that folder as presented by…

  5. Save Sorting Preferences

    When using Box in-browser, create a setting to change the default sorting preference. For example, so you can make the default sorting for all folders Name, Ascending. This is not currently an option and means every time you open a folder you need to manually resort it, as the default sorting is always set to Updated, Ascending.

  6. Leave the username on approval tasks intact even after account deletion

    It is hard to trace approval history on a file after the related users are deleted. This causes a lot of friction with customers. It would be better if all usernames would stay on approval tasks even after their respective accounts are deleted.

  7. Ability to Sort comment order by page

    When using Adobe Document Cloud, it keeps comments grouped on the same page versus oldest to newest. It's useful when reviewing one page at a time. Can we get a sort filter system that allows: by page, oldest, newest, commenter?

  8. Enable Box Web column headings to be displayed when scrolling down beyond first page of content

    Currently, as soon as user scrolls down beyond first page of content, the column headings are lost.

    There should be a user-level configuration setting that enables the headings to remain on screen (similar to Excel where column headings can be frozen/displayed, despite scrolling down several pages of rows

  9. Box Web Sort (NAME and UPDATED) should INCLUDE Bookmarks

    Currently, sorting the content of a Box folder sorts the content for all but Bookmarks, then shows sorted Bookmarks below the other content - this happens for Sort by NAME and Sort by UPDATED.

    Users might reasonably expect that subfolders might be sorted first, and all other documents and bookmarks be sorted secondly - similarly to Windows File Explorer (which does this, where shortcuts are treated as documents and sorted along with other documents)

    I believe the reason that this may be happening is that [Mssrs Box] has omitted to record any modification made to bookmarks (yes, the name of…

  10. Improve Move operation to offer choices when destination folder already has file of same name

    Currently, if a number of files are selected to move to another location, if the destination location already has filename(s), Box simply advises that the moves for those files has 'Failed', and lists then 'already exists in the folder '....'

    Box should instead, like other products, offer a pop-up window, indicating the filenames, locations, dates last modified, (and additionally, if any files are signed), with the option for user to select/unselect file(s) to overwrite or ignore. Filenames selected/ticked would then be moved, together with other files where no match was found.

    To simply offer no choice, leaves the user knowing…

  11. Enable users to select alternative applications to open files with in Account Settings\Integrations, other than MS office - such as for imag

    The application used to open some filetypes is 'hard-wired'. Users are not offered option to select the application 'to open with'. For example, images can only be opened in MS Paint when opened from Box on Web.

    Box should either A) offer the option to select an application to open with (for applications where viewer shows content, or B) should refer to the PC/laptop's Settings\Default apps and use that application

    For example, Box displays a preview of an image (jpg/png) selected, but when Open button selected, only MS Paint is offered to open the file. The world has moved on…

  13. Ability to change the initials format in Box

    Initials are heavily used in Box and I want the ability to change the format of how these are displayed as currently the only option is first letter of first name and surname (Joe Doe becomes JD), for companies that use non-standard email addresses, initials are different.

  14. Hide "editable" so it's not accidentally selected

    A feature that allows editing from a shared link has been released.
    At the time of release, the settings are released as "View and Download and Editable" according to the Box Note settings.
    After the release, the setting was changed to "View and Download Available" in the tenant settings.
    Editable" is now displayed when attempting to configure shared links in a tenant environment after settings have been made.

    We would like it to take over the settings when they are not editable and hide the "editable" setting so that it is not accidentally selected.

  15. Warning about creating folders with invalid characters

    The web application does not currently warn users about creating folders with invalid characters. For example, if you create a folder name that ends in a period [.] via the web, that folder never comes down to the Box client on a Windows machine. This is a limitation of windows.

    However, other cloud providers WARN users before creating the folder in the first place and some even prevent the creation of the folder (Egnyte for instance).

    A warning of "The folder you are creating contains an invalid character that may not be visible to users on Windows machines" or something…

  16. Make scroll bar wider

    When viewing a CSV file via Box's web portal/app, would love to see the tiny thin scroll bars made wider. (This form won't let me upload a screenshot of exactly what I'm referring to).

  17. Accurate display of number of files

    Fixed the problem of inconsistent number of files

    Inconsistencies in the number of files can occur when large amounts of data are owned or moved for business purposes.
    There is a workaround for this in the support page, but it does not work in some cases.
    Even if we can confirm the exact number of items in the report, the size may differ due to data inconsistencies.
    We feel that it is inconvenient for business use to not be able to accurately grasp the number of data.
    Please fix the inconsistency of the number of files.

  18. "Are you sure" pop-up when dragging & and dropping folders

    I'd like a pop-up message confirming if I'm sure to appear when trying to drag and drop folders on the web app. Especially in a GxP environment this is important to reduce risk of human error.

  19. Disable version history deletion for the entire tenant

    To comply with Japan's Electronic Bookkeeping Law, transaction documents are stored in Box, but there is always a risk that the files may be modificated with or deleted.

    File deletion and modification can be restricted by retention policies, etc., in addition to folder level of access.
    Deletion of version history can also be restricted by folder access permissions.
    However, users who have been granted editor or higher privileges can delete version history, and there is no other way to control this.

    Request the ability to control the deletion of version history in tenant settings.

    (Japanese)
    テナント全体でバージョン履歴の削除を無効にする

    日本の電子帳簿保存法遵守の為、取引関係の書類をBoxに保存しているため、ファイルの変更、削除されてしまうリスクが常に潜んでいます。
    ファイルの削除、変更の制限は、フォルダのアクセス権限以外にリテンションポリシー等で制限をすることができます。

    バージョン履歴の削除もフォルダのアクセス権限で制限できます。
    しかし、編集者以上の権限が付与されているユーザーはバージョン履歴が削除できてしまい、他に制御する方法がありません。

  20. Sharing UI

    More clearly subdivide the "Sharing" panel between the upper "Invite People" section and the lower "Share Link" section. The minutely thin gray line between the two doesn't adequately differentiate the two options. New users will tend to complete both options when only one sharing method is needed.
