  1. Provide a separate label that feeds the "Metadata" tab in search UI on creation of a template

    When user clicks on search options in the web app and on the metadata tab on choosing of the template the UI generates a Form to provide the values for the metadata properties. Today the Web App shows the Metadata Properties label defined during the creation of the template. Sometimes these labels do not read well during search. Example: If the label says "Closed Record Date (Required)" when capturing the values in the template it makes sense but when searching the word "(Required)" is feeding wrong message to user. So provide another label when creating metadata templates for each property…

  2. Metadata removal confirmation message verbiage update

    When trying to remove a template from a file or folder, the buttons say "Remove" but the confirmation message says the word "delete".

    "Are you sure you want to delete <Template Name> and all its values from the file?"

    Please change that to "Are you sure you want to remove <Template Name> and its values...

  3. Calendar Widget UI enhancements

    The today date/selected date in calendar widget is not highlighted enough and makes it difficult for users to view. Suggest to add a square box or additional contrast to make it clearer to the user.

  4. Increase capacity of the recycle bin to be unlimited.

    I want the capacity of the recycle bin to be unlimited.

    If the number of items in the recycle bin exceeds a certain value,
    the page will not be displayed properly as a "scale limit".

    I've heard that adding "?usemarker=true" to the end of the URL of the recycle bin page makes it accessible.
    However, there are some restrictions on the operation, and I would like to see the limit raised or made unlimited.

    ごみ箱の容量を無制限にしてほしい

    ごみ箱内のアイテム数が一定値を超えると「規模の限界」としてページが正常に表示されない仕様かと思います。
    ごみ箱ページのURLの最後に「?usemarker=true」を追加することでアクセスが可能になるということですが、
    操作に制限があることもあり、この限界ラインを上げる/無制限にするといった改修を希望します。

  5. Show folder option

    When I move or copy a file, I am given the option to "Show File." It would be nice to have the option to "Show Folder" also.

  6. Show full folder path at top

    Too much of the file path is collapsed at the left while there is plenty of space along the top to show more of the path.

  7. Customize default view

    The side bar that shows who the folder/file is shared with always appears and takes up way to much space so I always close it. I wish I didn't have to close it all the time and my preferred view was remembered or I can customize my views in my account

  9. File request custom theme transparent logo suggestion tooltip

    When putting themes for file request, using logos with existing color backgrounds does not look as clean. It would be great to add a tooltip suggestion to use a transparent logo for the user designing the theme.

  11. File request custom theme image upload from Box

    The File Request theme only allows content to be selected from a local machine. The add image should support the ability to choose content directly from Box.

  12. Comment Replies and Thumbs Up/Down

    It would be great to give a comment a thumbs up or down and be able to reply directly to someone's comment (ideally showing it indented under the person's comment, not at the bottom of the Activity/comment sidebar). This would help collaboration!

  13. Ability to turn off optional message field on shared link email and add collaborator dialogs

    Many customers in regulated industries do NOT like the fact that some email notifications from Box have the ability to enter an optional message that will be included as part of the notification. Because this email bypass the customer email gateway they don't have visibility into what that message is. This feature is a compliance issue and should have the ability to turn it off.

    The Box Compliance Email Archive is not sufficient for some customers and that is why one way to solve this would be disabling the feature.

  14. When inviting a user with a secondary address, please show them in the collaboration list with the email address (secondary address)

    Currently, when you invite a collaborator with a secondary email address, the primary address is displayed in the collaboration list.
    However, when you invite someone with a secondary email address, I would like to see the secondary address you invited displayed in the collaboration list, instead of the primary address.

    If the address is different from the one you invited, it will be confusing if the inviting party doesn't know the primary address.

    Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

    現在はセカンダリのメールアドレスでコラボレータを招待した時にプライマリアドレスがコラボレーション一覧に表示されます。
    しかし、セカンダリアドレスで招待した際、コラボレーション一覧にプライマリアドレスで表示されるのではなく、招待したセカンダリアドレスを表示してほしいです。

    招待したアドレスと違う場合、招待した側がプライマリアドレスを把握していないと混乱するためです。

  15. 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.

  16. Easier way to create a bookmark in Box from shared link generation

    Bookmark takes too many steps even when saving a Box's shared link. It should be easier to create a bookmark of a shared Link from adoption perspective.

    As-Is: 1. Generate a shared link 2. Copy the link 3. Move to folder where I want to save a bookmark 4. Create Bookmark and paste&name the link

    To-Be: 1. Generate a shared link 2. Prepare a prompt (probably in the shared Link generation popup) and select "Create Bookmark" and user can select folder they would like to save the link in within the same prompt 3. Save the bookmark (without actually moving…

  17. Set default branding experience for File Request Links

    In an effort to become "Enterprise Grade" and set certain UI preferences as the default, it would be nice if there was a way to have the enterprise UI settings (logo, color, etc) set as the default user experience when creating a new File Request link rather than having to set that manually. This would also help with consistency across the user created links when making them for external facing entities, reducing confusion for third parties.

  19. Ability to send e-mails from Box Web UI when "Restrict collaboration to within <Enterprise name>" in folder setting are activated

    Following enhancement was made at May 7th, 2021.

    Collaboration Allowlist Enhancement
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500008585062

    Customer are setting collaboration for internal only by folder setting.
    In this state, shared link are used to share files with external users.

    But with the update above, we can no longer send shared links by email from Box Web UI.
    Copying the shared link and sending a separate email is a workaround, but it doesn't get users to understand.
    A growing number of users are confused by the clumsy error messages that appear when sending email, and some mistakenly believe that shared link wasn't created properly.
