  2. Rename our favourites

    Rename Favourites
    It would be useful if we could rename the way we can see our Favorites.
    For example, we want to add in our favourites a folder named "Project XXXXXX, Area YYYYYY, Section ZZZZZ". But we are only working on this project, so we know this is for project XXXXXX, and we would like only to see "Section ZZZZZZ" in the left panel.
    Another example: we want to favourite a document named "Tracker XXXXX" - but we have a lot of favourite trackers with very similar names and we would like to add a nuance (for example: Project ZZZZZZZ,…

  3. Allow non-admin users to export the access stats for enterprises that enables Restrict Content Creation

  4. 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…

  5. Dropdown list is overlapped

    When there is not enough space for dropdown list to show on direction of bottom, currently it shows on top, but top is not a appropriate choice because maybe there is less space on top of the menu button.

  6. drag and drop jpegs

    • You currently do not have the ability to simply drag and drop a JPEG from Box in to PowerPoint (or any other document), which means you either have to open the doc, take a screen shot and copy/paste the screen shot OR use the “insert” function on PowerPoint and them go through your files to find it

  7. new folder button in move or copy window

    I would like there to be a button to create a new folder within the move or copy window. I have several template documents that I copy into new folder structures when I need to use them, and my workflow would be more streamlined if I could create the folder I am copying the template into from within the move or copy feature, instead of having to create the folder and then copying the template document.

  8. 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…

  9. [ACCESSIBILITY] Enable preview with non-embedded captions

    Currently video player requires subtitles to be embedded in the video file. It would be a great enhancement to adopt the industry standards and enable captions to be in a different file (same filename, different extension) on the same folder. That would simplify the work to be done when publishing a video with captions.

  11. Web interface improvements - New Folder creation

    Two things:
    1) Within the Box Web App, allow for the creation of a New Folder and other features when you "right-click" within the view area. Google Drive already has this.

    2) After clicking the "New" > "Folder", to create a new folder, a pop-up window appears. Please have the cursor automatically highlight the "Folder Name" field, so that you don't have to click within the text field first to type a name.

    These UI improvements will help with the overall experience. Thanks!

  12. 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 can be viewed by "People in your company" and "Invited people only".
    Some end users think this is confusing.

    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、「会社のユーザー」と「招待されたユーザー」が閲覧可能です。
    これが紛らわしいというエンドユーザーがいます。

    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。

  13. progress when move files

    Similar to when Upload files to Box, show a progress bar when Move files within Box. This is particularly helpful when move over a large number of files and folders.

  16. Locked Files

    It would be REALLY great if there were a way in Box to pull up all of the files you have locked. My team shares tons of excel files all day long. If I forget to unlock a file, no one else knows if they can get in. Half the time I'm not in it but forgot to unlock it. If there were a way to pull up all files at any given time in one place that I've locked where I could unlock them from that screen if I'm no longer in them, it would save us a lot…

  17. Improve web site usability

    When I share image folder with someone who does not have account at Box.com - their browsing experience is currently poor: it's not possible to see all photos as previews, changing their size, not possible to use arrows / swipe to navigate between previous and next full-sized picture and so on... Web site usability needs to be greatly improved to match best cloud services on the market.

  18. New / Folder Modal Window on Web App - Fields Lose Focus

    I'm a creature of habit and don't like change, so there are plenty of grumblings I could make about the new UI.

    That being said, there's one thing that absolutely gets my goat, and I'm told that this is "expected behavior" in the new web UI.

    When I click the upper right "new" then "folder" and the "lightbox" modal window appears to add information about my new folder, the old UI would focus the cursor in the naming field allowing me to just start typing.

    In the new UI, this window loses focus after a short load of some small…

  19. Improve the UI so that the "Owner" is not displayed when changing the permissions of a sub-folder.

    Improve the UI so that the "Owner" is not displayed when changing the permissions of a sub-folder.

    In subfolders that have inherited access rights from the parent folder cannot change the owner to collaborators other than the co-owner.
    However, after selecting the folder, select the collaborator shown on the right side of the screen and try to change the access permissions, will visible "Owner" in the menu. And if select "Owner" in the menu, nothing works, which is not a good UI as it can cause confusion when changing access rights.
    If change the access permissions in the "Manage Collaborators"…

  20. 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.
