  2. I want to select multiple users from the collaborator list and delete all the collaborators at once.

    I would like to add the ability to select multiple users from the collaborators list and delete collaborations in bulk.

    Currently, in the Box folder, you need to select the permissions of each user from the collaborators list and select one user at a time.
    Example: Editor → Delete

    This takes a lot of time when there are a lot of users, so we need a function to delete them all at once.

    If there are a lot of department transfers within the company, the folder administrator has to do this every month for security reasons for each user.

    If…

  3. One-Click shared link generation as Enterprise setting

    The recent change to Box sharing means that you now have up to 3 clicks to get a shared link on your clipboard - click Share, then toggle the link on, then copy to clipboard. This annoys our users, who liked the old way, where clicking Share would automatically generate the link.

    I think this change was motivated by feedback like this, where enterprises that choose to default to People With the Link permission sometimes end up with a lot of accidental open links:
    https://pulse.box.com/forums/909778-help-shape-the-future-of-box/suggestions/36114154-add-second-step-when-creating-shared-link-for-a-fo

    (We, on the other hand, default to just "people in this file" permission.)

    My proposal:…

  4. viewer uploader edit file name

    Would like to explore a custom permission level - between Viewer-Uploader and Editor, which would have all of the Viewer-Uploader rights, as well as the ability to "Edit File Name".

    The use case for this is the following - some users upload documents to a folder, but then need to be able to rename the documents. Renaming the documents before upload isn't an option due to specific workflow constraints. Giving Editor permission is not an option as there's been negative experiences with users accidentally moving or deleting customer folders.

    Thanks

  5. Remove external collaborator after certain period of inactivity

    We invite many external collaborators onto projects and it is tedious to remove them after projects end. Setting a global "remove external collaborator" time period does not always work because some projects last much longer than others.

    Request:Ability to set a "remove collaborator if inactive within Domain for x time"

    Thank you for the use case! Because there are a few ways to remove collaborators, it is unlikely we will prioritize this in our roadmap.

    We’ll keep this in mind! However, this is not currently planned. Let us know additional use cases which this would resolve.

  7. Filter search for "Files with all tags" when searching with tags

    Currently when you search for multiple tags you receive results for anything with any of those tags. It would be very helpful to be able to filter this result to something like "Only show files with all of these tags"

  9. Add print functionality under "more options" tab on file level list instead of having to go to preview or open the file

    Currently it is only possible to print a document from the preview window or by opening the document.

    Request: consistency of experience and adding an option on the file list level (under More Options)

  10. File Request+Metadata issue : Unexpected changing number via mouse operation

    When requesting a number field of metadata with a file request link, the number may changes unintentionally due to the user's scrolling the mouse.
    Can you improve the input field of the file request so that it is not affected by mouse scrolling?

  12. Notify me when a file is unlocked by another collaborator

    When a file is locked for editing by another user, on a case-by-case basis, I would like to be notified via email when that file is unlocked.

    Either:

    1. a file-setting that always notifies me after a user unlocks a specific file or
    2. a one-off subscription to a file when it is locked that I can set that notifies me via email when that file is unlocked. After this one-off notice occurs, the subscription would be deleted.

  14. Ability to disable the feature to send shared link by email.

    When the customer send email to external user, it is necessary to put superiors in CC according to their company rules.
    This feature does not match the company rules because it can not put anyone in CC, so they want to disable it to prevent users send email without approve.

  15. better video preview engine. better video details.

    Does the video preview engine handle x264 or x265 content? The whole industry is moving to x265 so ya better consider that. Does it handle .mkv files? Most of our videos dont preview properly. It shows a still frame but clicking the play icon comes up with an error message.

    You may notice in windows when you click on a video it tells you about the video in detail like 1920x1080, video tracks x264 hi10 L5.0 audio tracks FLAC 51 (Jpn) (Eng) Subtitle tracks PGS Eng SRT Eng.

    would be nice if the details of the file showed this info…

  16. Expose Metadata (EXIF, Codec, Duration, DPI, Resolution, Rating, etc.) with a "Properties" or "Get Info" like appraoch

    Both Windows and macOS can easily expose more info - this includes the rich metadata in any kind of file.

    It'd be nice to have an "All Properties" or "More Info" type of file that displays a files full metadata.

    This data is already baked into the file and only needs to be exposed or indexed for display/searching.

    Examples:
    EXIF (camera, model, photographer, exposure settings, etc.), IPTC (keywords, location, description), Movie FPS, Movie Duration, Movie Codec, Movie Audio Channel Count, Image Resolution, Image DPI, Office Document Author, etc.

    Workflow:
    User looking for specific video could find all clips longer than…

  17. Tags are copied along with the folder/file during a copy action in the Web App

    This is a great idea! Unfortunately we aren’t able to prioritize this ask at this time due to other competing priorities.

  18. Separate shared links for internal and external users.

    We want to be able to share links internally and externally. External shared links should only be available for 10 days while internal shared links should not expire.

  20. Embed Allowing Search Capability within folder

    Box embed should allow search within folders when using public/open shared links to the folder. This would be helpful and would allow users who are not logged in to search content shared.
