  1. 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).

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

  2. Individualized shared links

    We'd like to be able to send customized links to specific individuals (e.g. company.box.com/JohnDoe) to know, even though they'd normally show as "Someone has Viewed your file", that it can be tracked back to being the particular person from that link.

    We'd ideally like to send that same file to 5 different prospects with 5 customized links

    Great suggestion. This is not currently prioritized since it’s a narrower use case compared to the other items on our roadmap.

  3. Provide more clear password guidelines when creating a new account

    For example, add a real-time check that tells the user what is missing in the current password while typing it.

    Thank you! This is not something we are planning to revise. We will reconsider with additional feedback.

  4. Embed Widget: Add 'Play' Button UI for Embedded Videos (a la YouTube)

    Currently when videos are embedded using the native single file Box Embed widget, the UI that's presented before a user clicks on the widget itself is missing a large 'play' button (like you'd find on YouTube, for example) to indicate that the image is more than just that - an image.

    Unless you hover over the embed widget itself, the user has no visual indication that the image is actually a video that they need to click on to play.

    REQUEST: Make the Box Embed UI for videos more similar to YouTube or Vimeo.

    Thanks for the suggestion! This is an awesome idea, but due to competing priorities, this is feature request not currently on our immediate roadmap.

  5. Ability to 'Hide' Folders I've Been Added To

    As a user, I've likely been added to numerous folders that I do not need to access daily or even often, but still need to remain a collaborator in. A 'hide folder' option may help with this, where a user would be able to hide a folder form their All Files view, but the user would not actually be removed as a collaborator from the folder. They would then be able to access all 'hidden' folders via a menu option on the left rail (or elsewhere).

    Folder sprawl is an interesting challenge many of us face! To combat this, we’re recommending that users use the upcoming ‘Collections’ feature to group together content that’s frequently used vs. hiding content that’s infrequently used.

  6. Automatic warning when generating "people with link" shared link

    Generating a shared link with "people with link" settings is very easy for end users, to the point where they might not realize the degree to which they open that content up to hard-to-mitigate, external distribution. An automatic warning, when an end user selects" people with link," is required per company security policy.

    We understand the concern and believe the proper way to implement this is to either allow the admins to default shared links to “people in my company” and/or when a user selects “people with link” and admin can select a setting to pop up a warning message. We wouldn’t want to implement this by default to all customers since this is adding friction to sharing which will have a negative effect on that action.

  7. Permanent Folder Tree View in Webapp (Similar to Windows Explorer/Finder)

    Currently we have a 'jump to folder' option that provides a modal for navigating by using a folder tree view. Many customers would like this same tree view of their content as a permanent sidebar in the webapp for faster/easier 1) navigation and 2) context for where they're at in any given folder tree.

  9. Ability to change default collaborator level globally

    Customer is requesting the ability to change the default collaborator level upon adding a new collaborator. The default level is now Editor, but the customer wants to set the default to Viewer Uploader or something else to protect against provisioning too much access to users.

    Additionally, the customer wants to collaborate with many customers (external users) and would like to provision appropriate access to those users (preferably not Editor).

    This is not planned for our near or long term roadmap. We will reconsider with added use cases and/or customer demand.

    We would need to do additional discovery before prioritizing this request.

    Why would a user be provisioned and blocked?
    How often does this happen?
    How do customers deal with this today?
    How many customers have this issue?

  13. Ability to block or hide certain Groups from all other users when selecting names or groups to share content

    For example, Group A is Executives only so Admin wouldn't want another non-exec user to see that Group name when selecting collaborators.

    Not a high priority issue, but one use case is for HIPPA bound groups.

    Thank you for this suggestion. This is a resource-intensive feature which is not prioritized for our current roadmap.

  14. Detection and blocking of distribution lists

    We use many distribution lists to communicate.

    Technically, Box does not stop you from adding a distribution list email as a collaborator to a folder. All members of the list get email notifications but access to the folder is not granted to anyone on the list. This is expected.

    This suggestion is merely a protection measure that can be addressed by user education, so it may have a low impact.

    This is an interesting request and likely something we should look into for future improvements to how we handle distribution lists.

    Because there’s a workaround and we have higher impact requests, we will table this suggestion for now.
