  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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

  7. 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。

  8. 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".

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. 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…

  13. Cursor leaves folder name field after creating new folder

    I've found two bugs in the we-based box app. These have both been happening for a while now... several months at least.

    First, when you create a new folder, you can no longer just start typing the name, as the cursor leaves the Folder Name field upon creation of a new folder. Having to click back in the field is a bit of a pain.

    Second, often when I'm uploading something - particularly if it's hundreds of megabytes, or part of a larger upload, after finishing the list of uploads, it will begin uploading the list again. I've uploaded a…

  14. When restoring a version, keep the original Modified Date

    When restoring a version, keep the original Modified Date. Creating a new modified date implies that the file was modified when it was not. Versions should be restored to previous state.

  15. Set certain folders to default to searching only within that folder

    As an example, we have a Knowledgeable folder. When users go to that folder and search, I want to confine search to just that folder by default (most users won't want to tick the box).

  17. Add the ability to abort operations such as moving, deleting, and restoring from the Trash Box that involve large amounts of content.

    Add the ability to abort operations such as moving, deleting, and restoring from the Trash Box that involve large amounts of content.

    Box does not have a function to abort operations such as moving or deleting folders or files containing a large amount of content, or restoring from the Trash Box. By adding this function, users can abort the operations they have done by mistake.

  19. Enhance feedback when a user unlocks a file locked by another user

    There is no warning given if a user unlocks a file which has been locked by another user.

    Currently we have users who are locking files, while they edit content in desktop Office apps, but other users are unlocking as they also have to make urgent changes. This is causing a conflict of edits and loss of changes.

    If a user, other then the person that locked a file, unlocks a file then there should be a warning message displayed that asks for confirmation before the unlock is implemented.

  20. Where'd the rollover filenames on web go?

    Am I crazy or did I used to be able to see the full file name when I rolled over and held the cursor over a file link? I no longer see tool tips of the whole filename.

    Long filenames get truncated visually unless your web browser is wide enough to show them. The only way to see the full filename now is to click the rename pencil and view it there.

    This is really inconvenient. Can we have our tooltip filenames back, please???
