  1. 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.

    This is not planned. We’ll let you know if anything changes.

  3. 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.
    Thanks

    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.

  8. 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!

  9. Remove 'Get our app to view this on mobile' Text/Link in Emails for EMM-Enabled EIDs OR Allow Link Customization

    For customers that use Box for EMM (and have disabled the standard Box apps), the 'get our app to view this on mobile' link/text in the standard Box email notifications (like for @mentions, uploads, etc.) is confusing because users in that EID won't actually be able to log into the standard Box app that it links to.

    REQUEST:
    1. Either provide the option to remove this text from emails
    OR
    2. Allow customization of this text to change the link that it points to (so a customer can link to their software/app catalog where users download the Box for EMM…

    Hey there! Thanks for submitting this feedback, but due to competing priorities, we cannot put this ask on our roadmap at this time.

  10. Separate Move / Copy buttons

    Please consider improving this within Amsterdam

    There are a number of use cases that can be supported by separating the Move / Copy button into unique buttons:

    1) Folder or file templates: Users with Viewer access (can download) should be able to COPY a file or folder elsewhere. Currently this is not supported -- the user must download, which loses BoxNotes and Bookmarks.

    2) Separating "records" from reference material -- If Retention is set on a file, the user may want to copy a version elsewhere that is not subject to Retention

    Interesting suggestion, but we won’t be focusing on this ask for the time being due to competing priorities.

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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"

  16. 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.

  17. 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'

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
