    It would be nice to see files in an order of file access ranking

  2. 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…

  3. 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

  4. 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".

  5. Please add a button to switch between 'available', 'Add by Default' and 'Never show' for "the items displayed in this Box web app".

    In the near future (2021 7/15 JST) there will be an update to the user app settings in the Box web app.
    Once this update is in place, applications that are 'available' in the app settings of the management console will appear in the Box preview screen.

    While we are very happy about this, we do not want to confuse end users with this update.

    We would like to see only the applications that are set to "Add by Default" on the screen as now, and not the applications that are "Available".
    Please add a button to switch between 'available',…

  6. Please unify the order of folder names in the browser versions of Box and Explorer.

    In Windows Explorer, symbols can be added to folder names to make them appear higher in the list.
    For this reason, symbols are placed at the beginning of the names of frequently accessed folders for smooth access to the folders.

    However, in the browser version of Box, the rules for folder name order are different, causing confusion in operation.
    Please unify the order of names in Explorer and in the browser version of Box.

    Windowsのエクスプローラーでは、フォルダ名に記号を付けて上位に表示させることができます。
    そのため、頻繁にアクセスするフォルダ名の先頭に記号を付けることで、スムーズにアクセスできるようになっています。

    しかし、ブラウザ版のBoxでは、フォルダ名の並び順のルールが異なるため、操作に混乱が生じます。
    エクスプローラーとブラウザ版Boxでの名前の順番を統一してください。

  7. Shared Link Unavailable Prompt

    User believes that current 'shared link has been removed or is unavailable to you' page could be confusing to users that have access but are not logged in, and that the messaging should include a prompt to log in if user believes they have reached the page in error.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. Sort or filter files in a folder by the presence or absence of comments.

    Sort or filter files in a folder by the absence or presence of comments. Feature would be helpful to spot files that should have been reviewed and weren't.

  11. I would like to see BoxWeb implement a function to sort files by extension.

    The current BoxWeb does not allow sorting by file extension.
    However, in some fields, a large number of photos and videos are often taken for measurement and development work, and many types of files are miscellaneously stored in a single folder.

    For example, when searching for image files (.png/.jpg/etc...) For example, if you are looking for image files (.png/.jpg/etc...), you can search for them by file name, but you may also want to check them by file extension.

    We currently use a method of dividing files into categories by file type, such as blocks of image files, blocks of video…

  12. Default sort by date to descending (most recent first)

    The default sort order is Alphabetical by folder name. When I sort by Updated date, it defaults to ascending -- oldest items first. I'm most often looking for something in a folder that was updated very recently; I would prefer that the default for sorting by Updated date be descending -- newest items first.

  13. 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???

    Please remove the "/" after 'content' in the "File Upload" API URL from the official documentation. When triggered from Postman, the current API generates HTTP Error 400.

  15. Awful UI problem when adding collaborators

    Please fix this awful UI problem: I tried to invite collaborators to a folder, and send a message. I hoped to include my contact info so it would show up in the email. Apparently any sort of URL is not supported in this message box. Ok, fine. But instead of giving me an error message and allowing me to save the last 15 minutes I spent compiling the list of collaborators and writing the message, the box disappeared and AFTERWARDS I got a red message box stating that URLs are not supported in this message box. I lost a lot…

  18. Add an optional custom message when locking the file

    When you lock a file in Box, it would good to add your own message when locking the file as to why you have locked the file. By providing this, you can inform others who go to unlock the file why you have the file locked in the first place and either

    a) discourage them from racing through the confirmation dialog and unlocking the file
    b) provide additional context to them as to how much longer you will be with the file

    The message is optional so if you don't want to add additional comments, you can still lock the…

  19. Custom Support information (including displayed text)

    Currently, when you edit support information in the Admin Console (phone number, email, support URL), this is displayed in the "Get Help" section but it is, in my opinion, too rigid. For example, the Support Site URL is displayed as "Help center" in the callout and this cannot be changed to match the language we use internally.

    It would be great to customize this "Get Help" callout to customize existing items as well as add additional items to help point users to the correct resources e.g.

    • Add an item called "Raise a ticket" so users can click a link to…

  20. add an option to set a password when locking a file

    functionality that allows users an option of setting a password when locking a file to stop other users editing would be very useful in our business.
    ideally users would be able to set a time limit and select actions that can/cannot be performed when a file is password locked.
    eg: file cannot be edited/downloaded/copied/deleted/etc..
    option for password protection to be overwritten by system admin would be an essential.
