  1. Upload notifications should notify user of uploads even if their account is the one uploading to a folder

    User has set their folder settings to allow notification emails for a certain folder. She only gets email notifications when other people upload to that folder and not when she does. She would like to be able to receive notification emails when she uploads to the folder.

    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.

  2. Sort search results according to Name

    User wants the ability to sort Search results by Name, and not just filter.

  3. Support for Macro-enabled Files

    Macro-enabled Excel files (xlsm) can be previewed in Box (albeit a little slow to generate preview), but macro-enabled Word files (docm) cannot be previewed.

    Neither document type is officially listed as a supported file type (https://community.box.com/t5/Managing-Your-Content/What-file-types-are-supported-by-Box-s-Content-Preview/ta-p/327), so it would be expected that both work the same way (either be previewable or not).

  4. Indicators / Progress Bar for Large Folder Operations (Moves, Ownership Transfers, Delete, Copy)

    When doing a move of a large folder or changing the owner of a large folder, users often receive a 'this may take some time' banner notification in the webapp, but that quickly disappears and the user is left wondering... "so...has it finished fully yet?"

    REQUEST: Have more indicators (progress bar, e-mail updates, etc.) of progress in the operation, especially for folder moves/ownership transfers.

    Example: In our mobile apps, we provide a 'job manager' that shows the user progress when they're performing various actions.

  5. Shared Folder Page: Add the Ability to Search

    The shared folder page does not currently have the ability to search, meaning users must manually navigate through (potentially) pages of folders to find the relevant file.

    REQUEST: Add the ability to perform searches when viewing a Shared Folder page as a non-collaborator.

    For example, if a customer is using open shared links as a way to host a 'Brand/PR Assets' library with subfolders for logos, imagery, etc., the users are unable to quickly locate the file they need amongst the subfolders. Search would help with this.

    This is a great suggestion, and I can definitely see the usefulness of such a feature. Based on current priorities, I don’t foresee us being able to implement this feature in the short-term.

  6. HD Video Preview: Allow User to Download the Lower Quality (720P, 480P, etc.) Renditions of Video Files

    With HD Preview, users can choose the quality of the video in the Preview (based on network/bandwidth speed, etc.), but users cannot download those downsampled/lower quality 'renditions'.

    REQUEST: Allow users to download the lower quality renditions of video files on Box. For example, I upload a 1080P file, and I can choose to Preview the video in reduced 720P or 480P quality, and I can also choose to download those same renditions if I'd like. Think of it like adding a 'which quality/size output would you like?' option added after clicking 'download' for a video file.

    Thank you for the suggestion!

    Providing a way to create a copy of an HD video, but at a lower quality so that it is easily downloadable is a low priority for the team.

    It’s a niche use case at the moment and there’s a workaround (use a tool to downscale the video and upload that in addition to the HD video into Box).

  7. Allow passwords when access level is People in your company

    For increased internal security, we would like to be able to apply a password to a link, even if it is being sent to someone in the same company (currently external sharing is disabled).

    For cases where content is sensitive even within a company, inviting collaborators might be a better option.

  8. Make Custom Terms of Service Page Responsive

    Currently, the Custom Terms of Service acceptance page that users are shown upon first login to Box (when their EID has enabled Custom ToS) is not responsive and renders pretty poorly across Mobile, Sync, and other endpoints where the window is smaller than a full browser window.

    Thanks for the suggestion! We don’t currently plan to increase this limit given the potential performance impact this would have on page load times. We are, however, looking into alternate solutions for pagination.

    This is an interesting feature! However, it is for power users and does not have enough demand or impact in order to be prioritized.

    We will reconsider with additional feedback.

    Thanks for the submission. I’m not sure we understand the user problem. Please add your feedback in the comments and we will reconsider.

  13. Clarify in collaborators list which users are active and inactive

    Our admin accidentally transferred data from an account to a deactivated account causing collaborators to temporarily lose access.

    She pointed out that she could not tell from the list of collaborators which users were deactivated that have something like that would have prevented her from making that mistake.

    I would like more information on the use cases before adding this to our backlog.

  15. Email Notification Frequency Options - Immediate, Daily Digest, Weekly, etc.

    Box currently provides email notifications as options for end users to 'subscribe' to email notification alerts when content is uploaded, downloaded, previewed, deleted, or commented on. Box currently only provides one 'type' of email notification: instant (which includes automatic batching when events occur within a few minutes of each other).

    REQUEST: Add the ability for users to choose the 'type' of email notification they'd like to enable at the folder level (via Folder Settings):
    --Real-time emails (what we already have today)
    --Daily digest (1 email per day)
    --Additional weekly option (optional)
