  1. To default folders to sort files descending not ascending.

    Not sure why the Box program does not offer a default for folders/files to sorted descending not ascending. Who or what application does it benefit for the folders/files to be defaulted to the ascending, other than the constant secondary clicking of a mouse to hit the name sort button.

  2. Disable version history deletion for the entire tenant

    To comply with Japan's Electronic Bookkeeping Law, transaction documents are stored in Box, but there is always a risk that the files may be modificated with or deleted.

    File deletion and modification can be restricted by retention policies, etc., in addition to folder level of access.
    Deletion of version history can also be restricted by folder access permissions.
    However, users who have been granted editor or higher privileges can delete version history, and there is no other way to control this.

    Request the ability to control the deletion of version history in tenant settings.

    テナント全体でバージョン履歴の削除を無効にする

    日本の電子帳簿保存法遵守の為、取引関係の書類をBoxに保存しているため、ファイルの変更、削除されてしまうリスクが常に潜んでいます。
    ファイルの削除、変更の制限は、フォルダのアクセス権限以外にリテンションポリシー等で制限をすることができます。

    バージョン履歴の削除もフォルダのアクセス権限で制限できます。
    しかし、編集者以上の権限が付与されているユーザーはバージョン履歴が削除できてしまい、他に制御する方法がありません。

  4. Remove uploader's name

    It'd be useful to turn on/off the name of the uploader from files/folders.

    My VAs upload files and I don't want my clients to see who's uploading them as they sometimes think the designs are not done by me, but by other people, so it's causing confusion.

  5. Box.com - When sharing folders with External collaborators, to have a copy of the email from Box with the message I added

    Marked as optional, we should get a copy of the email that Box sent when using the "Message (optional)" option. I work with lawyers and law-related users that need proof of sending invites to external collaborators. There's no confirmation when you invite someone to collaborate to your folder, you only get an email once they accept the invite.

  6. share link permission to group

    It would be great if we can add a four option as a share link permission to "Group Only" so I can share it to the users who belong to my group.

  7. Let user disable shortcut top menu () or load shortcut menu before files listing

    Hi everyone,

    whenever we user move from one folder to the next, using the web app in a browser, the page load is delayed by the shortcut menu on top. This shortcut menu displays buttons for [Upload][Folder][Word Document][Excel Spreasheet].

    The current implementation is sooo annoying, since these four buttons are loaded on page and after the files listing in the directory. Unfortunately this shifts the file list of the directory down on the page each time.

    This shifting down the file listing on the page is so annoying for browsing directories, since in that time one can't aim for clicking…

  8. View the modification time of files in the box.com web interface (currently only the date is shown)

  9. Metadata Templates for External Collaborators

    There is no way for external collaborators to add metadata templates to folders and files. If templates are added for them, they can edit the templates, but they are unable to add the templates themselves.

    Allowing external collaborators to add metadata templates on their own would be beneficial to enable collaboration that leverages metadata.

    An example use case is photographers who use our Box environment to share image assets with us and would be the best people to classify the images.

  11. Addition of a function to confirm whether or not to overwrite a file with the same name if it exists in the destination folder when a file w

    When copying a file from another folder in a Box, if the destination folder contains a file with the same name, a message will appear asking if the file should be overwritten.
    The message "There is a file with the same name, do you want to overwrite it? and if the user selects "Yes", the file can be overwritten.

    Currently, the process is: "Add (1) to the end of the copied file"⇒ "Rename the file that already exists" ⇒ "Remove (1) from the end of the copied file".

  12. Ability to color code folders per agency within an Enterprise account while in the web portal view.

    To clarify/differentiate different agencies/companies under our main Enterprise, we would love to have the ability to apply color coding to folders in order to make it easier for those individuals who have access to multiple companies.

    Thank you!

  13. Box Embed Should Support Additional Query String Parameters to Show/Hide Content

    Box Embed currently uses query string parameters to show/hide certain content, for example "showParentPath" and "showItemFeedActions". For our use-case, we would benefit greatly from expanding the supported query string parameters to hide additional elements from the iframe. Examples include the ability to hide the filename with dropdown menu (including the All Files and Folders hyperlink), the "Download" and "Share" buttons, the arrows that let you navigate between recently viewed files, and the "X" button that allows you to close out of the currently viewed document and be returned to the "All Files and Folders" view.

    By supporting additional boolean query…

  15. Save Sorting Preferences

    When using Box in-browser, create a setting to change the default sorting preference. For example, so you can make the default sorting for all folders Name, Ascending. This is not currently an option and means every time you open a folder you need to manually resort it, as the default sorting is always set to Updated, Ascending.

    Thank you for the feedback. Do you have a file and folder naming convention you follow that will make the sort by name to be more useful than sort by updated date?

  16. Include HTTP Last-Modified / Current Version Header of Direct Link

    When you as a web client access to the direct link to a file in Box, the HTTP server responds only
    {...,
    Date=Sat, 09 Jul 2022 02:53:40 GMT,
    Expires=Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT,
    ...},
    which does not include "Last-Modified" information.

  17. WebApp UI - Ability to collapse left sidebar

    New Box layout New Box layout takes up space, reduces visibility and ability to recognize folders/files

    Perhaps I am missing something. With the new Box web application, there is now a wide, persistent orange menu in a left sidebar. That menu does not appear to be something that I can hide. I use Box on a laptop with limited screen real estate, and the new sidebar eats up a lot of the space previously available to show data. As a result, my list of folders and documents is squeezed into a smaller space, and I see a much smaller set…

  18. Finding Priority Documents within a Folder that may have a hundred documents

    It would help to be able to mark certain documents with a red checkmark as a Priority or Important document and be able to see only those documents that are Priority or Important or whatever you want to name it. Some of our Folders contain a hundred documents or more and it would be great to just see only the documents that have been marked as Priority if that is what the attorneys choose to see rather than the hundred documents.

  19. Move the "Upload, Folder, Word Document, Excel File" option in a folder

    Any time I open a folder, my subfolders / files populate below, but after .5-1 second, four of the most annoying boxes in the world pop up above that list called "Upload, Folder, Word Document, and Excel File." This causes all of the subfolders / files to be shifted down so that even when I try to quickly click on one, it will go to the wrong folder because everything has just shifted down. While I often use these options, trying to get from folder to folder is made so much slower and it's insanely aggravating to have to wait…

  20. Option to replace new Recents Carousel with older slider view

    I would like an option to replace new Recents Carousel with the former horizontal slider view when using a browser on a PC. On a wide screen the older view is a more efficient use of space.
