  1. 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.

  2. Remember sort order for a folder

    Remember the sort order chosen for a folder, whether by date or by name. Some folders will always need to be sorted one way or the other - currently have to re-sort multiple times a day when going back and forth between folders.

    Please share specific use cases for remembering sort order for a folder. I would be interested in understanding whether this sort order will be determined by the folder owner or will vary depending on the individual users.

  3. Allow folder owner to report on collaborators in their folders

    We would like the ability to have a folder owner search for a specific collaborator to see all the folders (that is owned by the folder owner) that they are collaborating on

  4. 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)

  5. Add "Dimensions" info under "File properties"

    To be able to see the dimensions of an image is an extremely valuable feature for designers to review and "QC" all of the marketing assets without having to download all the files.

    Thank you for the suggestion. While we definitely understand the value of displaying dimensions for image files, this functionality is not currently planned on our near term roadmap. Please continue to add comments and suggestions here to help us prioritize in the future.

  6. Allow user to rotate PDFs by 90 degree increments in Preview

    There are occasions where PDFs are not oriented properly in Preview or user needs to rotate the view to make reviewing easier (i.e.. maps, designs etc.)

  7. File request - Block upload of domains not on enterprise allowlisted domains

    For File Request where Enterprise requires user to login prior to submission, would like an additional security check for Enterprises that only allow for external collaboration from allowed domains as listed in the Enterprise console. If the domain is on the list then allow for file request upload, if domain is not on the allowlisted domains, block upload.

  8. Increase size of left-side menu on Home screen

    The left-side menu on the Home screen is too narrow and cuts off the names of folders/files saved under My Collections/Favorites.

    Users should be able to set whatever width is needed for the menu.

  9. login page Customization

    The login page is very confusing for our external collaborators. Despite the creation of "How to log on to Box" with pictures, external collaborators still click on the wrong link as the "Continue" button (for our managed users) is very large compare to the small font link for the external collaborators. The natural instinct is to click on "Continue" which gives the external collaborator an error since they are not part of the "managed users" and will not be able to SSO to our Box. Our staff is having to help our external customer on regular basis.
    Can the login…

  10. remove the character limit on invite messages. the message portion is vital my account and sending specific instructions on folder use

    remove the character limit on invite messages. the message portion is vital my account and we need to sending specific instructions on folder use and access. this is best when included with the link to the folder as sent by box. ALSO there is nowhere on the site or in the share section that even states there is now a character limit, instead it's just kicking back the invite and preventing it from being sent.

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. Generate Shared Links as a Relay Outcome

    Would like the ability to automate generating shared links on files within Box Relay as an outcome. One use case for this would be to create a process for generating external shared links. Many security-conscience customers don't want everyone to have the ability to shared content externally without some sort of approval or oversight. If we added generating and sharing shared links as an outcome in Relay we could build approval flows that would allow users to get approval to share a file externally even if they don't have the access do so.

  14. The "Other Options" menu is missing

    The menu display of "Other Options" is cut off.
    I want the menu display to be always displayed in its entirety.

    When files and folders are at the top of the screen, "Other Options" may not be displayed at all.

  15. Notification about Update of File

    If you share a link to a file or folder, is there a way for recipients on that file to be notified that the file has been updated or in the case of a folder that another file has been added?

    For example, when they receive the link, could there be a message that says, if you'd like to get updated about this file/folder enter your e-mail. Then Box has a way of sending them the updates.

  16. New Web UI and custom logo

    In the old UI, you could use any logo in the top left corner of the screen.

    We've been given the answer that the only place we can set a logo is in the top right corner of the screen with the new UI.
    However, users are used to the logo being in the top left corner and would like to have the option to place it in the top left.

    Thank you for your feedback! In an effort to modernize our application, we have made significant updates to our Web product to ensure that we improve our user experience while retaining custom branding for customers. Given that this feedback is related to user preference, we will continue to monitor if users continue to feel strongly about this. At this time, we do not plan to change this experience.

  17. Restrict assigning higher level permissions to external users

    we would like a control to restrict external users from having anything above a set permission level.

    It would also be great if we could review on one screen, external users to see what permission levels is assigned

  18. Support Drag & Drop from Box Web App to Outlook

    Please enable the ability to drag and drop files FROM Box Web App TO Outlook email client (including the option to insert them as links OR to add them as normal attachments). Currently there is no native Drag and Drop functionality available between the Box Web App and Outlook. Therefore, the process to add file attachments/links to emails via the Web App or Outlook Plug-In is actually currently LESS efficient with BOX than without it. Since BOX Drive is not available for virtual clients (such as Terminal Server or Citrix), their only option is to use the Web App or…

  19. Embed - Add Ability to Remove Header from Embed Widget

    In the legacy UI embed widget, there was a parameter in the code to not show the header, which was a great option as we want a streamlined embed widget.

    In the new UI embed widget, this option has been removed, meaning the header is ALWAYS shown, which can be a major UI distraction for various embed use cases.

    REQUEST: Re-add the ability to remove/hide the header within the embed parameters.

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

  20. Ability to Sort comment order by page

    When using Adobe Document Cloud, it keeps comments grouped on the same page versus oldest to newest. It's useful when reviewing one page at a time. Can we get a sort filter system that allows: by page, oldest, newest, commenter?
