  1. Finding Priority Documents within a Folder that may have a hundred documents

    It would help to be able to mark certain documents with a red checkmark as a Priority or Important document and be able to see only those documents that are Priority or Important or whatever you want to name it. Some of our Folders contain a hundred documents or more and it would be great to just see only the documents that have been marked as Priority if that is what the attorneys choose to see rather than the hundred documents.

  2. Option to replace new Recents Carousel with older slider view

    I would like an option to replace new Recents Carousel with the former horizontal slider view when using a browser on a PC. On a wide screen the older view is a more efficient use of space.

  3. UI improvements - Download Button

    received multiple feedback from users, where their client missing out the button on how to download, ended up they trying to sign up, which not ideal in term of fast pace workflow
    should be making the Download button bigger and colored, so more stands out,
    currently the button a bit hard to notice, but instead the Log In and Sign up superseded the overall view

  4. Move the location of Welcome to Box pop up

    When I set the custom terms of service and a new user logs into Box for the first time, it is hidden by the "Welcome to Box" pop up. Could you please move the location of either one so that the new user can see the custom terms of service please?

  5. Display error when entering unsupported characters when renaming folders and files

    When creating a new folder or file, if you include characters not supported by Box (other than Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane characters), receive an error.
    However, when renaming, I can name files and folders using characters other than BMP.
    (After renaming a folder or file, the character will automatically change to "_" after a while.)

    Please allow the same error to be displayed when an unsupported character is entered when renaming a folder or file,as when a new character is created.

    (日本語)
    <フォルダ名・ファイル名の変更時にサポートされていない文字を入力するとエラーを表示させる>

    現在、フォルダやファイル作成時にBoxでサポートされてるUnicodeの基本多言語面 (BMP)以外の文字を入力するとエラーが表示されます。
    しかし、名称変更時にはBMP以外の文字を使用したファイル名・フォルダ名を付けることができます。
    (変更後しばらくすると自動的に「_」変わります。)

    サポートされていない文字を入力したときに、新規作成と同じようにエラーを表示できるようにしてください。

  6. Add simple editing functionality for videos in Box (e.g. trim or stitch)

    Add simple editing functionality for videos in Box (e.g. trim or stitch).

    We take a lot of videos. Mostly from Zoom. Sometimes 8 hour learning sessions. Simple stitching or trimming would be valuable. Dropbox has this.

  7. Removal of restrictions on the number of contents displayed in the Trash Box

    The limit on the number of contents that can be displayed in the Recycle Bin without using a marker base will be removed. Contents of 150 pages or more will be displayed in the Recycle Bin without limitation.

  8. Enhancement to the UI when the user violates the limit on the number of items in the trash can that can be confirmed on the screen.

    I want to improve the behavior when the user violates the limit on the number of items in the trash can that can be confirmed on the screen.

    I want you to display up to the latest ○ items instead of displaying the contents at all.
    If it is difficult to realize this request, please display the screen of the reason why it is not displayed and the workaround screen instead of the error screen of "The specified page does not exist" to reduce the business impact.

    If it disappears suddenly, you will not be able to restore or confirm…

  9. Comments with Links

    It would be ideal if links to Box content that are pasted into comments would default to open in a new browser tab, not replacing the current view of workflow needed while reading other comments.

  10. Add a home to the web UI

    Add Home to the menu in the Web UI above All Files and allow it to be the default we a user first logs in. It should be associated with what they set their home page to be (i.e. Favorites, Collections, etc.). When using a closed folder structure where users can't create files and folders on the All Files page it makes no sense to take them to this page by default because natural thought would be that they should be able to create on this page not need to navigate to another page.

  11. Bulk converting files to most-recent latest version

    Recently for some unknown reason, many of my files content were lost (size showed 0 bytes and could not be opened).

    I had to revert those files back to most recent previous version MANUALLY, 1 BY 1 to recover my files (there were 200+ files affected). Please consider allowing bulk version revert.

    Also, will be great to be able to search files with potential errors (e.g. 0 Bytes), so I don't have to manually locate them.

    Thanks

  12. File counts do not refresh often enough for our needs

    The file counts within the webapp do not update regularly enough.

    We need to be able to see if there are files in folders and if so, how many, without having to look inside each folder.

  13. Ability to customize the display of the root folder of [Box for Salesforce]

    About the display of the root folder of [Box for Salesforce]

    I would like to prevent the root folder of [Box for Salesforce] from being shown when I log in to [Box Web].
    The reason is that I want to refer to documents attached in [Salesforce] only in the [Salesforce] screen.
    When logging in to [Box Web], we would like to tighten the access control of documents by making it impossible to operate the target documents from [Box Web].

  15. Menus are cut off and unusable

    When I select one of the files closest to the top of the list, the menu options for "open with" and sometimes "download" are cut off. No matter how I resize my screen I can't reach those menu items. This is an issue across multiple computers, usually using Chrome.

  16. Inactive Status - Should have visual indicator that shows the account is inactive when user is still a collaborator on folder/file

    When I change a user to inactive in the admin console, The user is still a collaborator on a folder or file. There is no way for the active folder collaborators to know if people are active or inactive. The inactive user should either appear greyed out in the list of users or have an red x or something to indicate this user is no longer active. You would become aware if you try to send a comment or at mention to the inactive user it will not pop up but that still doesnt emphasis that person is no longer…

  17. Ability to restore/delete files only by Box tenant administrators

    【Background】
    Due to the revision of the Personal Information Protection Law, the company's policy will be changed.
    The policy will be to erase unnecessary data after a specific period of time.
    This policy change will also cover data residing in personal Bin.

    Currently, as a specification of Box, if an item in the Bin is maliciously "deleted from the Bin" or if data is automatically deleted from the Bin after a certain period of time, it will be unrecoverable after 14 days.
    We would like to set up a specification like "Archive function of the Bin" so that we can…

  18. Have Google Docs/Sheets/Slides be a choice for new content instead of MS Docs/Excel/PPT

    When you're in the folder view, at the top of the screen, Box presents the ability to click in to create a new Word Document or Excel Spreadsheet. We use G-Suite and it would be great to have Google's documents listed here.

  19. Ability to print PDF documents without downloading

    In order to make it easier for the end user to print PDFs it'd be nice to have a print option directly in the context menu (both in the document preview and on document list).

    As PDFs tend to contain forms to fill in either interactively or manually it might be consiedered as useful to print them directly from the browser. Currently it's not possible as after user hits 'command + P' there's only 1 blank page to be printed.

    The current user path for printing a PDF is:
    1. Open a PDF in box webapp
    2. download it to…
