  1. Show timestamp in "update" column in Box Web/Box for Teams

    Dear Box team, it would be very helpful shwoing the timestamp of the last change of a file/folder is shown in Box Web and Box Teams Plugin instead of showing the date only (or a text).
    Content shown today:
    Changed yesterday by <Username>

    Desired content:
    <tt.mmm.yy> <hh:mm> <username>

  2. Clicking "updated" column header twice each page load is a huge frustration!

    Revert back to the display order of most recent. You took away a good feature within the last year.
    I sorely miss files being listed in most recent order.

  3. Shortcut to open file directly without preview

    We would like to have the option to open a file directly without opening the preview first (or right click --> open with).
    Maybe this can be done via a shortcut or a default setting in the user preferences?
    Thanks!

  4. Lock sort order for VDR (Virtual Data Room)

    Some of our collaborators are seeing our data room with a random sorting. It would be great if we could lock the sort order for the folder.

  5. researching by a user external collaboration invite status

    researching by a user external collaboration invite status

    Hope can be visualization of past collaboration history.
    Usability will improve if each user can do it without the administrator having to go to see it when it is on hold.

  6. Ability to delete comments in the mobile version of Box

    Currently, the mobile version of Box does not have the ability to delete comments.
    I have been marking files by handwriting, etc., but it is inconvenient without the ability to delete them.

  8. "Restore All" and "Delete All" is not available in the specific case

    "Restore All" and "Delete All" button in Trash is the function to restore or delete all items that are in both "Items I Deleted" and "Items I Own" filters.
    So if there are any items in either filter, I think the buttons should be pressable in Trash.
    But if there are items only in one filter, the buttons are grayed out in a filter that has no items.

    This can cause confusion, so I hope it would be any behavior like the following.

    • If there are any items in either filter, the buttons are pressable even though a user selects…

  9. Allow bulk download for watermark enabled folder

    Box Web App currently allows bulk download of files or folder. But the same feature is not available when watermark feature is enabled for the folder. This is limiting us from using this as a data room for investment transactions. If you can allow bulk download and add the watermark to all the files at the time of download, that would be fantastic.

  10. Request for improvement of behavior when a workflow creator designates (suggests) an external user as the person to be notified or in charge

    Currently, the following conditions must be met in order for the workflow creator to designate (suggest) external users as the recipients of workflow notifications or task assignments.
    1.External user account already exists
    2.Automatic acceptance of external user invitations enabled
    3.Workflow creator invites external users while 1 and 2 are satisfied

    In addition, if the following settings are made on the tenant side, even if the external user has enabled auto-acceptance, the auto-acceptance process will not be performed unless the tenant side setting requirements are met, After the external user satisfies the tenant's requirements, the workflow creator must invite the external…

  11. ”Priority" lock feature (There is no way to open an Office file that is being edited online in Box Edit.)

    Currently, if a user has a file open in OfficeOnline, that file cannot be opened in Box Edit.
    If I want to perform operations that are only possible in the local Excel application (e.g. sheet or macro operations) and a colleague comes home while editing in Online, my work comes to a halt.

    Can you please implement a priority lock function that works as follows.
    1. click "Priority Lock" on a file that someone is editing online.
    2. Only the latest version of the target file is copied to the same folder as a separate file with "(1)". After that,…

  12. View in Box Drive from Box.com

    Our team primarily uses Box Drive. When we send Box.com links around, it is very cumbersome to then have to navigate to the file in Box Drive if you need to use Box Drive to access it.

    A button should be added to the web version of Box.com to "View in Box Drive" which would then launch the Finder (Mac) or Explorer (Windows) location of that file in Box Drive.

  13. Download a List of Folders

    An option to download a .csv (or other convertible file) of the text titles of folders within a main folder.

    (I am requesting as I need to verify contents in several hundred folders, and cannot easily keep track of what folder has or needs content. But also because I know other would find this useful for their own purposes as well)

  14. Offer option to "auto focus = false" in Box Embed to prevent page scrolling

    When embedding Box documents via iFrame, the Preview SDK has Autofocus set to True. This means that Chrome web browser will "jump" to the HTML section that has the iframe and not stay at the top of the page.

    I'm requesting the option to set autoFocus: false to prevent this. Note this has been an issue for many years, based on postings here: https://github.com/box/box-content-preview/issues/960

  15. Improve Sharing Sidebar UI

    In the Sharing Sidebar, how about moving "Shared Link" and "File Request" to the top and then using all that sidebar real estate down the right side to allow a longer list of permissions to be seen without having to click into the Collaborators menu? Will make reviewing/managing permissions by folder more efficient. Alternatively, instead of "+10 People, + 2 Groups," why not describe that menu: "Full Collaborator List" or something like that.

  18. Allow folders or files to show up in multiple places but be the same object

    This is a feature request.

    I notice that sometimes team members copy or upload the same document to multiple locations in the same workspace or within the same workspace. For example, there is a shared folder with multiple sub-folders within it. The same file may live within many of those sub-folders. These are all separate files, so if someone uploads a new version of that file somewhere else, the other files are an older copy of that file.

    The request would be to allow some way to show, or link to, a file that is elsewhere in the space within…

  19. File Request should be back to the original page after uploading

    When multiple files are uploaded one by one (e.g. with different metadata), users need to visit the url every time upload completes. It would be time-saving if it goes back to the original page after completion of upload

  20. Grid View - Sorting After Searching

    When searching through our folders we will always use Grid View for the sake of seeing the preview images to determine which file we are looking for. However, after numerous discussions with the Box Support team, I was told this wasn't a bug, but how the feature is intended, which is absolutely shocking to me. Why does List View searching work fine, but Grid View does not?

    Upon entering an invoice number and searching for it, if we select to see the most updated files the search terms completely reset and we see every single file within our Box account.…
