  1. 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.

  2. Disable a folder from update

    As Owner I should be able to make a specific folder readonly so that collaborators don't modify any content or add new content.

  4. Get rid of the "Hello" lets get started box

    Turn of the " Hello" lets get started box or have away to turn it OFF. It is hard enough seeing what you need on the limited screen space. Very annoying

  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. 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 ..

  8. Move whith leaving a bookmark menu

    【Request】
    I would like to see "Move whith leaving a bookmark" added to the file menu.

    【Background】
    We are trying to centralize data management by using Box, but
    Copying files and folders within Box becomes inefficient if it becomes the norm.
    Searchability is reduced, file merging becomes more time-consuming, and the risk of editing or sending the wrong file increases.

    We want users to use "move" as their main tool, but
    However, if a file is removed from the source folder, other users will be confused and it will be difficult to use.

    The bookmark creation function is difficult to…

  9. Custom error messages when shared links cannot be accessed

    【Request】
    I'd like to be able to customize the error message when I can't access a shared link in Enterprise settings.

    【Current Status and Issues】
    The current error message is
    "This shared file or folder link has been removed or is unavailable to you.
    Think it's a mistake? No worries: Just email the owner or get in touch with Box support. We're here to help."

    However, it doesn't help with the next step at all.

    Even if the owner or administrator is contacted, they often can't identify the file and can't provide any support.
    Also, it is not always possible…

  10. 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.

  11. Right clicking box folders to open a new tab

    I would like to be able to open Box folders in a new tab by right-clicking that folder. Several years ago, when I first started using Box, I was able to do that, but for the last couple years that feature has disappeared.

    I'm not referring to breadcrumbs. I understand those can be right-clicked and opened in a new tab. Instead, I'm referring to the folders I see before me when I log into Box.

  14. Improvement plans about privacy settings of folders

    Are there any improvement plans below?

    BoxNote is not available when a folder is set privacy - "Hide collaborators and their activities from non-owners" - active.

    OfficeOnline is not available when you set folder privacy - "Hide collaborators and their activities from non-owners" - active.

    I often want to refer to Boxnote and MS Office documents for the purpose of reference much data and information with our business partners.

  15. See a longer duration for the pop-up that appears at the top of the screen when moving or copying is performed.

    We would like to see a longer duration for the pop-up that appears at the top of the screen when you move or copy.
    It would be great if it could be set up on a per-tenant basis if possible.

    If we accidentally manipulate it, we'll get flustered.
    We need a little more time to calmly click the "Undo" button.

    <移動・コピー時に画面上部に表示されるポップアップの持続時間を長くして欲しい>

    移動・コピー時に画面上部に表示されるポップアップの持続時間を長くして欲しいです。
    可能であれば、テナント単位で設定できるとさらに良いと思います。

    誤って操作してしまった場合、慌ててしまいます。
    冷静に「元に戻す」ボタンをクリックするには、もう少し時間が必要です。

  16. 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…

  17. Comparing Saved Versions

    Box automatically saves versions of documents, but no one in my company can use this feature because there's no way to compare versions of these document (i.e. run redlines).

    Example: If I share a Word document with a client and they make revisions, I can see a new version was saved but I have no idea what they changed.

    The automatic version saving is an OK tool if I'm the only one using the document, but it's not effective for multiple drafters.

  18. Remove large batch of collaborators from a shared folder.

    It would be ideal if you could remove a large batch of collaborators from a shared folder en mass instead of one at a time.

  19. Clearly Differentiate Options on "Share this Folder" Screen

    On the "Share this Folder" window, I would LOVE for that incredibly thin horizontal dividing line to be thicker/darker. Alternatively, any intuitive page design change that would better differentiate the "INVITE PEOPLE" option from the "SHARE LINK" option would be wonderful! I do a lot of initial handholding for our new managed users with respect to sharing content.

  20. Improve the sort order of candidate groups on invite modal

    Improve the sort order of candidate groups on invite modal

    Currently, candidate users/groups that partially match the texts I entered are displayed in the ascending order.

    We want a way to get the user/group that perfectly matches the texts I entered displayed at the top.

    For e.g., let's say we have the 4 groups each titled "Enterprise Sales team", "Commercial Sales team", "Online Sales team", "Sales team".

    With current design, when I type "Sales team" in the textbox, candidate groups are returned in the below order (every group that contains "Sales team" is returned in an alphabetic order):
    Commercial Sales…
