  1. Keep Company Branding Banner with new Box Web Experience and Collections

    One of the reasons I really like Box (enterprise version), was that my users felt like we were using a 'custom to our firm' cloud-product. The beta version of your new Box Web Experience and Collections removes the company branded banner across the top; instead leaving only our logo placed next to my profile picture in the corner. Doesn't look customized enough; instead I'm one of a thousand companies using it. The green side bar running down the left of the screen is too much - reminds me of an animated cartoon. When released, I hope the ability to keep…

  3. Send in-app notification for failed bulk move/copy.

    Box Notification on account (not email notification) for failed moves.

    When copying or moving a large numbers of files, sometimes those moves fail.

    We would like to be notified about files that failed to copy or move

  5. symlink support

    Would be most excellent to add support for symbolic links in uploads 🙏

    Motivation
    We archive and share private pre-releases of iOS frameworks on Box. These frameworks inherently contain symbolic links. So when they're downloaded, the symbolic link pointing to the true header directory is borked and Xcode is unable to compile the given framework.

    On the plus side, lack of this support is good incentive for us to move to a better distribution system for these frameworks.

    See details on community ticket for current Box symlink behavior details:

  6. 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…

  9. Favorites in Sidebar - Custom User-Defined Sort Order

    As of April 2018, Favorites now display directly in the Web App sidebar, sorted alphabetically.

    This request is for supporting custom user-defined sort order for that list (being able to drag items within the sidebar itself to determine the sort order).

  11. Sorting - Don't Sort Folders First (Or Provide User-Level Setting to Choose)

    The webapp (and mobile) have traditionally always sorted Folders, then Files (followed by Bookmarks) regardless of which sort order (name, updated, etc.) is chosen.

  13. Hide "editable" so it's not accidentally selected

    A feature that allows editing from a shared link has been released.
    At the time of release, the settings are released as "View and Download and Editable" according to the Box Note settings.
    After the release, the setting was changed to "View and Download Available" in the tenant settings.
    Editable" is now displayed when attempting to configure shared links in a tenant environment after settings have been made.

    We would like it to take over the settings when they are not editable and hide the "editable" setting so that it is not accidentally selected.

    (In Japanese)
    共有リンクから編集する事ができる機能がリリースされています。
    リリース時点での設定はBox Noteの設定に準じて「表示とダウンロードおよび編集可能」の状態でリリースされています。
    リリース後にテナント設定で「表示およびダウンロード可能」に設定変更を行いました。…

  14. Disable expiration period change for public shared links only

    Currently it is possible to set up automatic expiration period for public shared links in Admin Console, which is an important security feature. However, users can extend the expiration period in Shared Link Settings. It would be more secure to disable expiration period extension for public shared links by users, while allowing them to change expiration periods for other types of shared links (company or collaborators only)

  15. Make available an email address that consists of only numbers

    In our file request settings, the "Email address" is set as mandatory.
    Users whose email address consists of only numbers will be marked "Invalid email address" and will not be able to upload.
    In the current specification, users of companies that use email addresses consisting of only numbers cannot upload.

    Make sure that an email address consisting of only numbers is recognized as a valid email address.

    ファイルリクエストの設定にて「メールアドレス」入力を必須にしています。
    メールアドレスが数字のみで構成されているユーザーは「無効なメールアドレス」と表示され、アップロードできません。
    現在の仕様では、数字のみで構成されたメールアドレスを利用している企業のユーザーはアップロードが行えません。

    数字のみで構成されたメールアドレスが有効なメールアドレスとして認識されるようにしてください。

  16. Folder color and icon customization

    Current UI, it is not easy to recognize which folder is important in visually.
    If we can customize folder color and icon by importance, it is going to be easy to discriminate between folders and it is improve security.

  17. Bulk Shared Link Generation

    A user level ability to generate shared links in bulk in Box webapp. A little background, we are supplying images of our product to major dept stores (think Macy's, Dillards, Nordstrom, Kohl's, etc). These are the images they used to post our product on their web sites. We essentially have to fill out their forms with our product attributes with links to the image. We create 1000's of products annually, this my need to have a listing of all the links.

  18. Flexibility to adjust column settings on the left panel

    Flexibility to adjust column settings on the left panel - where favorites are listed. It is very small and you can not see the entire field name.

    This field is stationary and will not adjust.

  19. Request for Supporting HTML tags for File Request.

    Currently, there is no way to add HTML tags(i.e line break) into the title and instructions for “Customer’s Option” in the File Request
    due to the explicitly prevented for security concerns. Since we cannot use line break for instructions, it is hard to read if the customer enter long sentence for the instructions.

  20. Set cookie to remember which Box enterprise the user last signed in as

    The Box web app should set a cookie in the user's browser to remember the Box account they last signed in as, and take them directly to the SSO (or Box login) page for that enterprise, without the three intermediate steps where the user has to click "Not a part of External Org?", then enter their email address, then click Next, and only then get to their SSO screen.

    This is an issue that often comes up when collaborating across enterprises.
