  1. 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.

  2. Make all "Get link" modals copy the link to the user's clipbaord

    In the Box UI, often when you click on "Get link" it not only shows you the link in a modal, but also automatically copies it to your clipboard. This is really helpful, as it saves the user an extra step.
    However, this doesn't happen always. Sometimes when you get the share a link modal it just presents you with the URL, but you then have to manually copy this to your clipboard.

    So, it would be great if you applied the "automatically-copy-to-clipboard" pattern across all "Get link" scenarios throughout the Box UI.

  3. 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.

  4. right click property not displaying properly

    This is more of a bug than an idea. But there seems to be an issue when we right click on a file towards the top of the folder and part of the properties go underneath the browser toolbar. Hence we are unable to click on the first few options like open with, share etc. Could it be corrected by making any right click in the top half of the screen to force the properties to flow downwards instead of up and vice versa.

  5. Improve preview window navigation

    When checking previews in the Web app the Previous button continuously moves if you go between files that have single or multiple pages. With multiple-page files, a thumbnail pane appears which pushes the Previous arrow around making it a nuisance to preview files smoothly.
    Please put the thumbnail pane inside the preview area so the Previous button doesn't jump around. Also, it would be really nice to move between files with the left and right keys on the keyboard, wouldn't it?
    Thank you.

  6. Fix slow and unstable sync behavior

    We all use the Web app in my workplace to upload and edit MS Word files. Recently, sometimes uploaded files are not visible to a person on another terminal. They appear about 5 to 10 minutes late which is detrimental in our business which has strict broadcasting deadlines.

    Yesterday my colleague uploaded her file several times but I could not see it in the folder at home. When it finally appeared it was Ver.11! But I had not seen any of the uploaded versions until that point.

    Syncing also seems to be unstable in Box Drive. I completely gave it…

  7. Update Issues with creating new folder and naming folder.

    With the new updates, when you create a new folder and the window pops up to name it, you have to click into the type box to name the folder. The typing cursor should just automatically be ready for you to type. It used to be this way until the last update. Messing up my workflow...

  8. completely lock function

    We want completely lock function.
    When user is editing file, the other user cannot be opened its file.
    Therefore, user will decrease that they edit same file by mistake.

  9. 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.

  10. Disable a folder from update

  11. 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

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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. 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.

  18. Get a list of all collaborators for a box folder

    I want to get a CSV file with all collaborators for a box folder. The fields should be the same as on the Collaborators page. This needs to be available for end users - not just for box administrators. I need this so I can copy the internet IDs from one folder and add them as collaborators on a different folder. Doing this single name at a time is not practical.

  20. 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。
