  1. Collapse sidebar on right hand side (Activity / Details / Metadata) by default

    Give users ability to decide at either account or folder settings level whether content opens up in full screen (i.e. marketing video etc) with the side bar on right hand side collapsed by default.

    They can then click if they want to open the sidebar to check on Activity / Details / Metadata

  2. customize permissions that preserve watermarking on downloaded content

    High urgency request for the ability to customize permissions that preserve watermarking on downloaded content. Currently only “Viewers” preserve the watermark when downloading content.

    We’d like to allow customers to customize the permissions that can preserve the watermark e.g. Editors, Co-Owners, Owners.

  3. Ability to set email notifications at each folder level

  4. Option to request access to a folder

    Request: If an external or internal user is forwarded a Box folder invite and they are not a current collaborator, they should have a mechanism to request the access and such request should automatically go to folder Owner/Co-owner for approval or decline. This should be done in a way that does not display or communicate the folder owners name.

    Rationale: We have many external users that are part of large teams. Adding all (and maintaining) in the team is not feasible. These external users often forward the folder invites.

    Interesting feature request! However, we’re not able to prioritize it at this time due to competing priorities.

  8. Request to add the file type "yml" for yaml file to preview

    Currently, BOX preview supports the file type "yaml", but file type "yml" is not supported. The 3 characters file extension (it is same as file type) is general especially Windows environment, so I want to support the "yml" file on preview.

  9. About the scope of expiration notice to co-owners.

    Currently the expiration of the invited user to a folder is notified to the owner and co-owner of the folder,
    however, any co-owner cannot receive the expiration of the invitee of its child folder while owner receives all the expiration notification.

    We would like to request to cascade the scope of co-owner's privilege to its child folders so that the co-owner of the parent folder can receive all the expiration notification of the descendant folders.

  11. Private comments

    Ability to create a private comment. Right now, all comments are public (all collaborators can see). We would like to have a feature to make the comment private so that only user who posted it can see.

  12. Add URLs and email addresses to collaborator invites

    We would like the ability to have a URL link and email addresses within the body of Collaboration Invites.

    Now URLs are no longer allowed, and our use case was to provide clients we’re sharing data with a link to other pages for context, and an email address for contact, like “alias@domain.com” within the email.

    As a work around, we're forced to generate our own emails manually using shared links, which is more cumbersome, prone to user error and potentially less secure.

  14. Need warning message when different filename/extension is uploaded using "Upload New Version"

    User can upload a new version with different filename/extension from the current version using "Upload New Version" feature. User should be prompted when this happens as this is often the user error.

  15. Export all Collaborators on an item from Web UI

    As an editor - when I go to a folder, I can see everyone collaborated into that folder.
    On the right hand side, I can click on a user or on an icon that shows + x number people.

    When I do that it opens a page showing a table of users collaborated in.
    Name/ Email address/ Permission / Date Added/ Added To

    I would love a button to click which would simply export a .csv of that table.

    Seems simple as that table is presented on the web page.

    Thanks for the suggestion! While I definitely see the usefulness of being able to export a report of collaborators on an item, we don’t plan to launch this feature in the near term as we’re focused on other various collaboration improvements.

  17. Ability to set folder notifications for external and internal collaborators within a folder.

    Companies with many external collaborators have to walk each user through changing their folder notification settings so the external collaborator will be notified whenever a document is uploaded to a folder. This is extremely manual for us and their external collaborators. It would be easier if folder owners could set folder notifications for everyone within the folder so external collaborators receive the sames notifications as internal collaborators.

  20. Prompt for Folder Moves

    Add a prompt when moving a folder to ensure a customer wants to perform the action before moving into a folder.
