  1. Please add a button to switch between 'available', 'Add by Default' and 'Never show' for "the items displayed in this Box web app".

    In the near future (2021 7/15 JST) there will be an update to the user app settings in the Box web app.
    Once this update is in place, applications that are 'available' in the app settings of the management console will appear in the Box preview screen.

    While we are very happy about this, we do not want to confuse end users with this update.

    We would like to see only the applications that are set to "Add by Default" on the screen as now, and not the applications that are "Available".
    Please add a button to switch between 'available',…

  2. Accessibility - Update 'Not Part of [Organization]?' text on company-specific URL's to indicate that it is a link for screen readers

    We have a company URL, for example organization.box.com; there is a link that reads, "Not a part of [organization]?" Clicking it brings you to the generic Box login page. However, this text is not handled correctly by screen readers. We propose that this should be updated for the benefit of our current and future clients who may rely on a screen reader.

    From our accessibility department: "So when the screen reader gets to that line, it does not indicate that it needs to be clicked "if you are not part of [the organization]." It is vague, and does not guide…

  3. Improve reliability of email upload

    Improve reliability of email upload

    Email upload can sometimes get delayed. Most of the time upload is completed relatively soon, but sometimes it takes hours to complete. We want this feature to be more reliable and predictable.

  4. 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.

  5. Passwords on File Request links

    I would like to be able to add a password on public file request links to protect these file request pages (like how I add passwords on public shared links)

  6. To have shared file Information field open to public (non-logged) viewers

    Hello, I would like to suggest that Information field of public file shares are shown without requiring login. I believe that both the class of utility that particular field offers to visiting viewers as well as the practical aspect of having to log-in in order to view that text is not realistic and should be open to public viewers.

  7. Make available an email address that consists of only numbers

    In our file request settings, the "Email address" is set as mandatory.
    Users whose email address consists of only numbers will be marked "Invalid email address" and will not be able to upload.
    In the current specification, users of companies that use email addresses consisting of only numbers cannot upload.

    Make sure that an email address consisting of only numbers is recognized as a valid email address.

    ファイルリクエストの設定にて「メールアドレス」入力を必須にしています。
    メールアドレスが数字のみで構成されているユーザーは「無効なメールアドレス」と表示され、アップロードできません。
    現在の仕様では、数字のみで構成されたメールアドレスを利用している企業のユーザーはアップロードが行えません。

    数字のみで構成されたメールアドレスが有効なメールアドレスとして認識されるようにしてください。

  8. About the scope of expiration notice to co-owners.

    Currently the expiration of the invited user to a folder is notified to the owner and co-owner of the folder,
    however, any co-owner cannot receive the expiration of the invitee of its child folder while owner receives all the expiration notification.

    We would like to request to cascade the scope of co-owner's privilege to its child folders so that the co-owner of the parent folder can receive all the expiration notification of the descendant folders.

  9. Please implement the function to restore the contents in the trash to a folder other than the original folder location.

    Please implement the function to restore the contents in the trash to a folder other than the original folder location.

    Currently, when restoring files/folders from the trash, it will be restored to the same folder as before the deletion.
    If we accidentally delete a large number of items that we plan to move, it will take a considerable amount of time to restore and then move, and the items in the move process (delete / move / copy) will be temporarily locked, which will hinder our business.
    We are confident that if we can select the restore location, which will…

  10. new tab opens for link destination

    It would be nice to be shown link destination in a new tab or window (w/o right clicking function) when clicking on URLs/hyperlinks for comments, search results etc. on Box.
    Jumping to link destinations in the same windows makes me unhappy cause I have to re-open original site each time.

  11. Mentions

    Specify multiple people at once when commenting on a comment.

    You can use @mentions to notify users of files in Box, but I think it is extremely inefficient to have to enter the user name from @ every time.

    However, we think it is extremely inefficient to have to type the username from @ every time.
    For example, it would be very convenient to be able to specify @mentions with a single click or by copying and pasting.

    (和訳)
    Box上のファイルに対し、@メンションでユーザーに通知することが出来ますが、毎回@からユーザー名を一から入力する必要がするのは極端に作業効率が悪いと捉えています。

    例えばメールの返信の様な形でワンクリックで指定出来たり、
    コピー&ペーストで指定できるなど、簡単に@メンションが付けられると非常に便利だと思います。

  14. Add 'type' in column sidebar features.

    Currently the features at the column sidebar only can sort by 'Name', 'Updated' and 'Size' only. 
    It would be nice if the column sidebar from box layout features can be add another item on it, Which is I'm looking for 'Type' of folder/file to be add. 
    This will make the layout neater and more organized because the colors of files and folders in the waeb app makes them cluttered which makes the layout seem not regulated efficiently, and it will also make it easier to search for files and folders especially in large quantities of files in one folder. Looking…

  15. How does "Restore All" in Trash work?

    From my testing, it appears when you have a bunch of content deleted out of order (from bottom up rather than top down) in your trash and you click "Restore All", Box will not automatically restore everything back in the appropriate order, but rather will start restoring until it reaches an item without a parent folder. It will then initiate the "The folder(s) where one or more of the selected items were originally located no longer exist" pop-up. Is this expected behavior? Here is a screen recording of my testing: https://cloud.box.com/s/y5typ8fv4f5svkeuhg4wxpmfdgptjadj

  16. Request about 'People in your company' for shared links

    There is a permission called "People in your company" for shared links.
    When a link is set to "People in your company", it actually can be viewed by "People in your company" AND by "Invited people" there as well.
    Some end users missed out the fact that those "invited people" would also be viewing it with the generated link.

    Please change the name of the item to "People in your company and Invited people only".

    ご要望:
    共有リンクの「会社のユーザー」という権限があります。
    「会社のユーザー」権限を設定した共有リンクは、実は「会社のユーザー」だけでなく「招待されたユーザー」も閲覧可能です。
    エンドユーザーによっては、この「招待されたユーザー」も生成された共有リンクで閲覧可能であることを見逃すことがあります。

    そのため、項目名を「会社のユーザーと招待されたユーザー」に変更して欲しいです。

  17. Show only files that are not in the "Collections".

    There are so many files on "All files". In such a situation, it is very useful to be able to show only the files that are not in the "Collection".

  18. Remove Recent button from Web portal

    Let's say I watched private photos uploaded to Box.com. Next time I want to show someone some public photos using web version of Box.com under my account. I log in and - voila! - my private photos are visible under "Recent" now! No good. I suggest to optionally hide "Recent" from Home portal.

  19. Make collections have the ability to playlist sequence a song list. The web client is missing any ability to playlist songs.

    On the web app, we're missing any way to playlist and sequence a song list. The iphone app does this automatically with folders, but we need this feature on the web app! The collections would be the perfect place to be able to do this!

  20. Visible Folder Tree Setting

    Problem: users often have files/folders shared with them by collaborators, and the titles of these folders can be the same - e.g. 3 folders all named "Photos." Without clicking into these folder, you don't have context as to who owns it/where it came from.

    Request: Allow folder owners to decide if they will allow folder tree visibility on their collaborated folders. This would provide context without giving direct access to content they should've have access to.
    e.g. They can add Folder Visible on an upstream folder and they would see the folder but no content until they get to the…
