  1. Make folder/file description visible again under the File/Folder name vs new details pane

    Description of file/folder has been moved to the details pane on the right side. My customer is seeing this as a regression and not as user friendly as before and would like to see description to come back under folder/file name (like in old UI) as opposed to the Details pane in New UI

  3. Accurate display of number of files

    Fixed the problem of inconsistent number of files

    Inconsistencies in the number of files can occur when large amounts of data are owned or moved for business purposes.
    There is a workaround for this in the support page, but it does not work in some cases.
    Even if we can confirm the exact number of items in the report, the size may differ due to data inconsistencies.
    We feel that it is inconvenient for business use to not be able to accurately grasp the number of data.
    Please fix the inconsistency of the number of files.

  4. Improve reliability of email upload

    Improve reliability of email upload

    Email upload can sometimes get delayed. Most of the time upload is completed relatively soon, but sometimes it takes hours to complete. We want this feature to be more reliable and predictable.

  5. Get a list of all collaborators for a box folder

    I want to get a CSV file with all collaborators for a box folder. The fields should be the same as on the Collaborators page. This needs to be available for end users - not just for box administrators. I need this so I can copy the internet IDs from one folder and add them as collaborators on a different folder. Doing this single name at a time is not practical.

  6. Make it easier to create a free account for external collaboration

    free users account creation is difficult so this lead to lower the usage of external collaboration. Hence, the users are using more shadow IT

    Thank you for your feedback! At this time, we cannot prioritize this feature request, however, we will keep this in mind for future iterations of our account creation experience.

  8. Right-click on a file to open in a new tab.

    We need an easy way to open multiple tabs for a file. Our writers want to be able to right-click a file name in Box and choose to open in a new tab or window.

  10. Allow custom logo in Box notifications

    If we upload our logo in our custom branding (enterprise settings > custom set up) it will not show in email notifications sent from Box. Instead, it will show the standard Box logo and colors. White labelling notifications is important to mimic our portal and avoids unnecessary Platform development.

  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. Enhance and support the Box Embed Widget for mobile browsers.

    We outsource hosting and presenting documents to Box. We allow our users to upload documents in our app and we upload them to Box via API. Later on, when users want to view the file, we ask the Box API for an iframe URL and embed it in our app. So, in the end, no one is logged in to any box applications, because we use the API under the hood.

    Thank you for the submission. We are currently collecting use cases and feature requests for the Box Embed widget, and are considering it for update in a future planning cycle. We do not have a timeline for this at present, but ask you to continue to submit feedback here in the meantime.

  14. Customization of SSO login screen

    Further allow branding customization and controls on login screen. We do not use "network usernames" and as such it can be confusing for users.

    Thank you for this suggestion. I understand the use case. However, we do not plan to accommodate that level of customization at this time.

  15. Add ability for users to open a folder in Box Drive from the Web App

    Add some kind of "open in Box Drive" option for a folder. Clicking this would cause Box Drive to open the appropriate folder locally.

    This seems like it would be better solved with a search improvement to Box Drive. If not, let us know in the comments.

  16. Update "Not Part of Company" Text to Look Like a Button

    When you share a folder or document with a client who is not a part of your organization they receive an email, they then create a login, they are then sent to a page that says "Company uses your network username and password to login to Box. Continue to login to Box through your network." There is then a Continue button and then text that read "Not part of Company" All 66 of my clients have clicked on the button and not on the text because the text does not look click-able. It would be fantastic if that text could…

  17. Only allow users to set shared link expiration up to the Enterprise setting limit

    When setting up a shared link in Box, we want the user to be able to set the expiration up to the Enterprise setting, but not beyond the Enterprise setting.

    A shared link with a shorter expiration time is more secure but less convenient. The security level varies depending on the content, so it would be desirable for users to be able to set an expiration date below the Enterprise setting.

    Managed users set expiration dates beyond their Enterprise settings, allowing content to be accessed for unintended periods of time.

  18. Re-Size left Navigation Bar

    Currently if favourites have long file names, the display is cut off. Having the ability to resize the left navigation pane/panel would increase usability.

  19. "Shared links" - search functionality

    Currently "Shared links" do not have the search functionality or the search bar enabled. This is presenting an issue some someone that needs to share a ton of files and for one reason or another cannot add the users as collaborators.

  20. Visible folder tree (selected folders) and Request access to folders

    We face challenges with permission management and ensuring relevant access to folders for staff outside of their Division/Department/Countries. One great solution would be to have the possibility to display part of a folder tree, and to be able to request access to some folders within that folder tree. In this way, a funding person from an affiliate HQ could request access to the EA or PA country’s funding folder to the country funding focal point. This could technically be managed with a very complex use of Box Groups, but it would be an extremely useful alternative solution.
