  1. 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

  3. Ability to delete comments in the mobile version of Box

    Currently, the mobile version of Box does not have the ability to delete comments.
    I have been marking files by handwriting, etc., but it is inconvenient without the ability to delete them.

  4. "Restore All" and "Delete All" is not available in the specific case

    "Restore All" and "Delete All" button in Trash is the function to restore or delete all items that are in both "Items I Deleted" and "Items I Own" filters.
    So if there are any items in either filter, I think the buttons should be pressable in Trash.
    But if there are items only in one filter, the buttons are grayed out in a filter that has no items.

    This can cause confusion, so I hope it would be any behavior like the following.

    • If there are any items in either filter, the buttons are pressable even though a user selects…

  5. Allow bulk download for watermark enabled folder

    Box Web App currently allows bulk download of files or folder. But the same feature is not available when watermark feature is enabled for the folder. This is limiting us from using this as a data room for investment transactions. If you can allow bulk download and add the watermark to all the files at the time of download, that would be fantastic.

  6. Request for improvement of behavior when a workflow creator designates (suggests) an external user as the person to be notified or in charge

    Currently, the following conditions must be met in order for the workflow creator to designate (suggest) external users as the recipients of workflow notifications or task assignments.
    1.External user account already exists
    2.Automatic acceptance of external user invitations enabled
    3.Workflow creator invites external users while 1 and 2 are satisfied

    In addition, if the following settings are made on the tenant side, even if the external user has enabled auto-acceptance, the auto-acceptance process will not be performed unless the tenant side setting requirements are met, After the external user satisfies the tenant's requirements, the workflow creator must invite the external…

  7. ”Priority" lock feature (There is no way to open an Office file that is being edited online in Box Edit.)

    Currently, if a user has a file open in OfficeOnline, that file cannot be opened in Box Edit.
    If I want to perform operations that are only possible in the local Excel application (e.g. sheet or macro operations) and a colleague comes home while editing in Online, my work comes to a halt.

    Can you please implement a priority lock function that works as follows.
    1. click "Priority Lock" on a file that someone is editing online.
    2. Only the latest version of the target file is copied to the same folder as a separate file with "(1)". After that,…

  8. View in Box Drive from Box.com

    Our team primarily uses Box Drive. When we send Box.com links around, it is very cumbersome to then have to navigate to the file in Box Drive if you need to use Box Drive to access it.

    A button should be added to the web version of Box.com to "View in Box Drive" which would then launch the Finder (Mac) or Explorer (Windows) location of that file in Box Drive.

  9. Download a List of Folders

    An option to download a .csv (or other convertible file) of the text titles of folders within a main folder.

    (I am requesting as I need to verify contents in several hundred folders, and cannot easily keep track of what folder has or needs content. But also because I know other would find this useful for their own purposes as well)

  10. Improve Sharing Sidebar UI

    In the Sharing Sidebar, how about moving "Shared Link" and "File Request" to the top and then using all that sidebar real estate down the right side to allow a longer list of permissions to be seen without having to click into the Collaborators menu? Will make reviewing/managing permissions by folder more efficient. Alternatively, instead of "+10 People, + 2 Groups," why not describe that menu: "Full Collaborator List" or something like that.

  12. 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.

  13. Allow folders or files to show up in multiple places but be the same object

    This is a feature request.

    I notice that sometimes team members copy or upload the same document to multiple locations in the same workspace or within the same workspace. For example, there is a shared folder with multiple sub-folders within it. The same file may live within many of those sub-folders. These are all separate files, so if someone uploads a new version of that file somewhere else, the other files are an older copy of that file.

    The request would be to allow some way to show, or link to, a file that is elsewhere in the space within…

  14. Have a better way to show 'Full File Paths' for 'subfolders' in the web-app

    Since people can be invited to folders that have the 'same name' it can be hard to identify in your 'All Files' view which folder is in which account.

    Since you don't want to accidentally drop files in a folder that is shared with people outside your organization or vice-versa, it would be helpful to have a better way to identify which folder is from which account / directory structure.

    For now the recommended guidance is to have the full file path of you directory structure in the sub folders so personnel can see which sub folders are from which…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. Hide unknown/system access record from Contents Insight activity

    To avoid end user confusion, we’d like to request that the activity on content insight only focuses on identified user-related action to the end user. The current activity includes some system related and/or unknown access (not box users), however, this may cause user confusion. Preferably, we’d like to show those systems related and/or unknown access to admin/co-admin only on the Admin console.

  18. Thumbnail resizing

    You've eliminated resizing buttons for thumbnails. Customer chat referred to this as an "enhancement". That's like calling a building fire "heating enhancement". Customer service stated that window resizing makes the thumbnails bigger. That's not true. Even if it WERE true, it's much more convenient to resize thumbnails in whatever window size works for me. Maybe you think eliminating the plus and minus buttons and the slider between them provides a less cluttered, more elegant look. I don't. Please restore this useful and needed feature ASAP.

  19. File Request should be back to the original page after uploading

    When multiple files are uploaded one by one (e.g. with different metadata), users need to visit the url every time upload completes. It would be time-saving if it goes back to the original page after completion of upload

  20. Allow managed users to limit the method of file access on an individual file level

    Allow managed users to limit the method of file access and editing through the Box web portal to limit formatting and function incompatibilities between Office Online and Google App Suite.
