  1. Downloading Empty Folders

    We noticed and it's confirmed with Box Support that the Box service treats "empty folders" inconsistently depending on which Box mechanism is used.

    Empty folders are not created if we download folders via the Web interface. Empty folders are created via Box Sync. We are finding that this inconsistent behavior is creating confusion for our users and a mistrust in the Box service. Can you rectify the inconsistent behaviour?

    Thank you for this suggestion! This is a low priority because it’s a very narrow use case. Changing this functionality does not impact a large enough user base.

  3. Add Support on Adobe Links Files

    Creative teams leverage this the most when they are cross-linking between Adobe files into a master file to consolidate auto-updating and auto-pulling of all the assets coming from all the different files.

  4. Allow for users to create custom colors for their folders.

    We would like to be able to custom color code their folders.

    We will not be supporting custom colors for folders. We’re investigating having visual indicators for certain classifications.

  5. Personal folders created by a service account appear yellow instead of blue

    When content creation is restricted and personal folders are created on a users behalf, it would make more sense for the end user to see those folders as yellow instead of blue to indicate that they aren't shared

  8. Option to Restore an Item from Trash to a New Location (Other Than the Original Location)

    Users cannot view/preview the contents in their trash before determining if they want it to be restored.

    No clear way to recall exactly where each of the files were restored to (especially when you're dealing with dozen or more files)

    We don’t currently have this slotted in as an update to the Trash page given limited asks for it. If customer demand persists, we will re-evaluate, though this change also requires an API update since https://developer.box.com/v2.0/reference#restore-a-trashed-item only allows choosing of a new target parent folder in the case where the original parent has been deleted or user lost access.

  9. Adding cc of invitation sender to Folder Invitation Emails

    Request: Add the folder invitation sender as a cc to all folder invitation emails

    Rationale: Primary need to ensure recipient is aware of the sending email which generally denotes the company. Right now, it only has the sender's first and last name which is highly arbitrary in many scenarios in inviting external users.

    Good suggestion! This doesn’t rank high enough on our list of priorities for Web App, but we will re-evaluate with additional demand.

  10. Auto-redirect to Box account after logging in once and typing in Box.com in the address bar

    One of our users does not like the fact that Box auto re-directs to his Box account after logging in to his browser once, then opening up a new tab and typing in Box.com.

    Example:

    1. Login to Corporate account
    2. Open new tab/window and type http://www.box.com and hit enter
    3. Page loads to corporate Box account and does not allow me to go to box.com public website

    It could be addressed by an intermediary page that offers both options, or it could be addressed by identifying that the user is logged in, still navigating to the path requested (e.g. Box.com) and then…

    This is a rare use case where a logged in Box user wants to see the public website.

    Given the relatively minor affected population, we will not introduce friction for our product to solve for this use case.

  11. Separate shared links for internal and external users.

    We want to be able to share links internally and externally. External shared links should only be available for 10 days while internal shared links should not expire.

    Interesting suggestion! However, this is not planned at this time due to competing priorities.

  13. Collaborators Page (Item-Level) -- Add Ability to Sort by Column Headers / Filter by External Collab

    The Collaborators page (at the file/folder level) currently does not allow any sorting capabilities. Add a simple ability to click the column headers to change the sort order to things like "added most recently at top" or "reverse alphabetical order by name".

    Additionally, adding an "external?' filter to only show external collaborators in the folder would be awesome.

  15. Invite Collabs Pop-Up: Add Optional 'Send notification?' Checkbox

    Currently in Box, when a user uses the Invite Collaborators pop-up to invite someone to a folder, an invitation email is always generated for the recipient. This is good in some scenarios, but creates a lot of email noise in many other situations where the inviter really doesn't want the recipient to receive an email notification.

    Google Drive provides a 'Notify user?' checkbox on their 'invite' pop-up that allows you to 'silently' add the recipient to a folder without sending them an email notification.

    Request: Add 'notify users?' checkbox to the invite collabs pop-up

    There are several workarounds to achieve this in the current product, so we will not prioritize this feature in our roadmap.

    Thanks for the suggestion!
    Unfortunately, at this moment we don’t have the technical bandwidth to support Arabic and other right-to-left languages.

    Previews may load more slowly the first time if the file has not been converted yet. Some file types may not be pre-converted. Subsequent viewings should be faster for these files.

    Preview loading performance is something we’re always focused on improving, but there are no specific efforts on the roadmap for this right now.

  20. Remove "Mail All collaborators" button for folders with high numbers of collabs

    This mail all functionality often fails (and produces strange behaviour such as repeatedly emailing people) when there is a high number of collaborators in the folder

    There are customer use cases for this button. Therefore, we will keep it. Thank you for the feedback!
