    This is an interesting feature! However, it does not have enough demand in order to be prioritized. We will reconsider with additional feedback.

  3. Make "More Actions" tool usable with multi-select

    Currently the More Actions button is not available for "more actions." If a person multi-selects files then chooses "more actions" the action is only applied to the object last selected. To improve ease-of-use, consider making "more actions" apply to multiple files if multi-select is used before an app under "more actions" is launched.

    Interesting feature request! However, we’re not able to prioritize it at this time due to competing priorities.

  5. Update Error Message When a User Accesses a Box URL for Content They're Not a Collaborator On

    When the recipient clicks on this link (the raw URL not Shared Link) and they're not a collaborator in the same folder, they receive a vague error that doesn't let them know what they did wrong that states "You cannot perform this action"

  6. Use Box with Adobe Acrobat CE Professional and it's "Shared Review" concept

    it can be used when all reviewers have a shared UNC (windows network path) to the same file. We would like to use it with third parties + Box

    We have no plans to support this specific request in the near-term. We will reconsider with additional demand.

  7. Only allow owners & co-owners to share links outside of the collaborator permissions they themselves control

    There is currently no ability to allow owners/co-owners of a folder to send open links, when the global enterprise settings are set to restrict sharing: 'People in this Folder'

  8. Enable Web App to display the SHA-1 checksum for an object

    We work with multiple large files and would like to be able to view the SHA-1 checksum that is stored in Box from the Web App in order to validate file transfer integrity as necessary.

    This is a very acute use case that isn’t in line with what we’re currently investing in for Web App. We will re-evaluate with additional customer demand.

  9. Create new folder from Move/Copy Dialogue box

    We regularly need to move and copy content to different locations in Box. It would be very helpful to have a "New Folder" option within the move/copy dialogue Box. This would help mirror desktop functionality (and sync, which currently supports this feature).

    This is a very narrow use case, so it’s not a priority for our roadmap right now.

  10. Error message shown for failed uploads could be more descriptive or specific.

    "There was a problem downloading the items. Please try again" is the provided error message for a downloading error.

    We would like this message to be more descriptive and potentially include information around which specific files have and haven't been successful so that users able to continue the download as required.

  11. Major/minor flagging or differentiation in their version history.

    It is important to be able to manage milestone updates to a single document that can be referred back to, both major and minor.

    Some of this has been compounded by the additional versions created by autosave when using MS Office concurrent editing.

  12. Ability to see additional info from a shared link (file/folder owner, parent folder/location, etc.)

    Oftentimes, users get access to a link that is shared with them via email, chat, etc.

    If the owner or the file is deleted, moved, or transferred, there isn't an easy way to identify where the file lives and who owns it either from an end user or admin perspective.

    Currently, we have to reach out to Box Support to look up the file ID or shared link to get this information.

  13. Allow Folder Description to be created in same step as creating new folder name

    When user clicks 'New Folder' they should be able to edit both the Folder name and the folder description in one step from the pop-up window.

    We removed this functionality because it had low usage and caused confusion for many users. Thank you for your feedback.

    Box currently offers Collections and Metadata on the web app. I would love to understand the gap between those two features and the user needs so that we can come up with a solution that will solve your problem.

    (You can use custom metadata to "label" folders; these custom metadata are searchable in the search bar. Please bear in mind that there is some delay in indexing the metadata, so you will not be able to search the new metadata immediately.)

  16. Adjust the Get Info button to pull from the properties of a Box Link vs from the HTML Header tag information

    This would be much more user friendly (and expected) for the proper data to populate when clicking Get Info if the hyperlink is a shared link.

    We are mostly requesting that the folder name as a bookmark populates.

    This is an interesting feature! However, it does not have enough demand or impact in order to be prioritized. We will reconsider with additional demand.

  17. Ability to pin a folder to remain at the top of the main Box Web App screen.

    Either a user or an admin should be able to pin a folder.

    Using favorites is the current alternative, but for usability purposes and sharing important content, pinning would be helpful as well

  20. Open Link ability - single access

    We would like to make a link that forces a person to login (i.e. related to previous feedback submission) and then have a link expire for that person after one access (one click of the link).
