  1. The ability to prohibit folder operations by users with editor privileges

    From a folder management perspective, we do not want end users to be able to create new folders, delete folders, or rename folders at all in all hierarchies, with the goal of preventing end user misoperation with folders.
    Currently, all folders are created by the administrator, but since end users can also create, rename, and delete folders, we are concerned that in the future, as Box is used, there will be more folders that the administrator cannot detect, which will confuse all end users. We would like to prohibit all of them.

    However, we want to allow end users to…

  3. default file request webpage for child folders

    We would like to create a default File Request Webpage Template that automatically applies to every folder we create under the parent folder rather than having to Copy the File Request Webpage.

    We expect the root parent "Request File Webpage" to be the default for all child folders created new under the parent folder...

    We want the exact same layout and fields on every "Request File Webpage" for every child folder under the parent.
    Not the link, but the Webpage layout and fields.

    We are hoping, at minimum, we can setup a Default or Template that can be applied every…

  4. File Request list

    I would like to see the list of the folders that have File Request enabled so that I can check which folder is already enabled and can easily disable from that list.
    There is a feature in admin console but would like to have the end users be able to do see it for their collaborated folders.

  5. Please separate the colors of the icons displayed in folders and files.

    Due to the release of Box Shield's new classification indicators, the colors of the "lock icon" and "shared link icon" displayed on folders and files are all grayed out.
    In the past, the "lock icon" was red, and the "shared link icon" was blue, etc., making it easy for users to see and use.

    We believe this is a far cry from Box's goal of accessibility, which is "ease of use for all users."
    In order to provide an easy-to-use environment for all users, please restore the icon colors to the previous specifications or color code them.

  6. Open link accessible only by those who hold a Box account

    I want to share sensitive content with people outside my organization for a limited time (e.g., 3 days).

    Problems:

    • Using an open link does not allow restricting access to specific individuals. Also, if the person does not have a Box account, it is not possible to record an access log.
    • Using collaborators does not allow for automatically removing certain collaborators after a set period.

    Please provide a solution.

    機密コンテンツを期間限定(例:3日間)で社外に見せたい(共有したい)。

    問題
    - オープンリンクを使用すると、特定の個人へのアクセスを制限できません。
    また、Box アカウントを持たない個人の場合は、アクセスログを記録することができません。
    - コラボレーターを使用しても、一定期間後に特定のコラボレーターを自動的に削除することはできません。

    解決策を提供してください。

  8. View total Folder size in web app without requiring an Admin run a report.

    Users and Content managers require the ability to see the size of a folder they have access permissions to without having to reach out to an admin and run a report.

    We are aware of the admins being able to run reports, as well as users being able to see the individual file sizes, but when multiple files need to be downloaded or handled via folder box user needs to contact us on the admin side to do any cursory decision making or review hundred and sometimes thousands of files individually just to simply get a total file size of…

  10. file request with BVE

    Currently we are using BVE and have a firewall setting to block the normal app.box.com.
    When our group/subsidiary companies try to upload a file through file request, since the link URL is https://upload.app.box.com, they cannot upload a file via file request.
    It would be great if we can make a file request link that is BVE so the URL is https://upload.ent.box.com.

  11. When moving content, it would be nice to have the option to create and name a new folder that content can be moved into.

    Currently, when I move items to a new location, I either have to create the folder ahead of time, or move all of the items loosely, then create a folder, then moved copied/moved items into new folder. It would be nice if I would have the option to create and name a new folder during the move/copy process.

  12. Limit the number of files that can be uploaded in the Box Web App

    The request is to include a setting within the Admin Console to limit the number of files that can be uploaded at one time through the Box Web App.

    The customer is in insurance (ClaimsPro integration) and is trying to implement functionality to make a work item when someone uploads more documents for a claim than is allowed.
    When users upload too many documents, the job will run multiple times while the documents are being uploaded, creating multiple work items. They are unable to reduce the run frequency of the job and are hoping to limit the amount of uploads…

  13. Recent Files Menu Options

    I saw one suggestion to allow "Recent Files" to open in a Microsoft App and not just browser, which I voted. The web app does eventually show the Microsoft App, i.e. Word, but only after I click on the file and it opens in preview mode. Why not immediately and before actually going to the preview?

    Also, adding an option to the recent files menu that would directly link you to the file's folder would be enormously helpful.

  14. Drag and drop operations between browsers

    Microsoft Edge allows you to split the browser screen.
    I have separate Box folders on both split screens.
    It would be convenient to be able to copy and move files and folders from one screen to another by dragging and dropping them.

  15. Placement of "Delete Group"

    The placement of the "Delete group" button at the top right of the screen that appears when you click a group from the list of groups in the management console is too poor.

    During normal operation, what you see here are forward-looking functions such as "Save" and "Add."
    The more you get used to the operation, the more likely you are to press this button with force.

    管理コンソールのグループの一覧から、グループをクリックした際に表示される、画面右上のボタン「グループの削除」の配置が悪すぎる

    通常のオペレーション時、ここに表示されるのは、「保存」や「追加」といった前向きな機能群である
    操作が慣れてくるほど、このボタンを勢いで押してしまいそうになる

  16. Ability to be unlocked only with the permission of the person who set the lock

    With the current file locking feature, even if a file is locked, it can be unlocked by another user.
    In this case, the file that was originally supposed to be updated cannot be updated and is saved as another file.
    The result is a lot of conflict files and a lot of work to merge all the information.

    [The features we want]
    When editing a file, the file is completely locked.
    If other users want to edit this file, they will ask the user who locked it to unlock it.
    It will only be unlocked if the user who put…

  17. Invitation of collaborators by list

    Currently, Box has a small screen for inviting collaborators, and invitations must be made on a per-privilege basis. So there are some mistakes of invitations by users.
    This could be a compliance issue with business partners. So we need new interface that allow users to check the invitation list and register in a batch input.

  19. Displaying tags in grid view

    Tags are displayed in list view.
    It would be nice if it was also displayed in grid view.
