  1. Offer option to "auto focus = false" in Box Embed to prevent page scrolling

    When embedding Box documents via iFrame, the Preview SDK has Autofocus set to True. This means that Chrome web browser will "jump" to the HTML section that has the iframe and not stay at the top of the page.

    I'm requesting the option to set autoFocus: false to prevent this. Note this has been an issue for many years, based on postings here: https://github.com/box/box-content-preview/issues/960

  2. I want to bookmark a "file://" location

    Box can create bookmarks to web-based content. Some users still have local, server-based files, box should allow creation of bookmarks to travel to these places.

    As an example, I can paste "file://server/folder/folder/folder" into a browser address bar and get to a server folder structure.

    Since I can do that, I can also bookmark it in the browser... If I can bookmark it with the browser, Box should also be able to use that address to create a bookmark in a folder.

    thanks!

  3. I would like to see a list of files in Box's WebUI.

  4. I would like to see a button implemented to go back to the original screen from the folder settings and collaborator screen.

    When I go to the screen to check folder settings or collaborator in WebUI, there is no button to go back to the original screen
    The folder settings screen can be returned to by pressing the cancel button or by using the browser functions, but the collaborator screen can only be returned to by using the browser functions.
    I think this is a bad user experience because some users do not know how to go back to the previous screen.
    It would be easier to understand if a back button is implemented, so please implement it!

  6. Revert to former UX for selecting files/folders (no more check boxes)

    In order to select multiple files or folders in the Box Web App you now have to use the checkboxes which are only visible when you hover over the file/folder all the way to the right.

    Previously, you could select multiple files and folders by clicking on the file or folder icon on the far left, and didn’t have to bother with checkboxes. The suggestion is to revert to the former UX for selecting files/folders

  7. Accurate File Count - Script Automation or Access

    As I've discussed with the BOX support team, BOX web interface does not display an accurate count of files. We upload thousands of files per day and when the count of files displayed by BOX is not accurate, we assume there was a network glitch and attempt to re-upload the thousands of files which results in unnecessary network bandwidth and computational resources.

    The BOX support team has access to a script they run to fix errors in the file count. Until the file count is accurately displayed in the web interface, it would be nice if BOX would automatically run…

  8. Show timestamp in "update" column in Box Web/Box for Teams

    Dear Box team, it would be very helpful shwoing the timestamp of the last change of a file/folder is shown in Box Web and Box Teams Plugin instead of showing the date only (or a text).
    Content shown today:
    Changed yesterday by <Username>

    Desired content:
    <tt.mmm.yy> <hh:mm> <username>

  9. Maintain folder structure when exporting legal hold content

    Maintain folder structure when exporting legal hold content

    The legal hold export is very difficult to use because only files are downloaded and the folder structure is lost.
    Therefore, we would like to be able to download the files while maintaining the folder structure.

    リーガルホールドのエクスポートはファイルしかダウンロードされずフォルダ構成が分からなくなり非常に使い辛いです。
    そのため、フォルダ構成を維持したままダウンロードできるようにしてほしい。

  10. Selective Bulk Trash Restoration

    Enable the ability to further filter trash folders by folder path and date deleted and perform a bulk operation to restore affected files. Alternatively allow a view to see a full list of all deleted items, rather than the smaller pages.

    The current bulk method is to restore all deleted items in trash. In organizations where the trash retention is set to never auto-delete, trashed files are maintained indefinitely which can create a very large trash folder for users. We do not want to restore files and folders for all time, just a select period.

    Example:
    Files below a specific…

  12. Version history - ability to see what has changed since the last version

    Ability to see what has changed since the previous version on Box web - highlighting key differences or changes to the document. Also the ability to compare 2 specific versions side by side as you can in SharePoint to see what has changed.

  13. Save Sorting Preferences

    When using Box in-browser, create a setting to change the default sorting preference. For example, so you can make the default sorting for all folders Name, Ascending. This is not currently an option and means every time you open a folder you need to manually resort it, as the default sorting is always set to Updated, Ascending.

    Thank you for the feedback. Do you have a file and folder naming convention you follow that will make the sort by name to be more useful than sort by updated date?

  14. Shortcut to open file directly without preview

    We would like to have the option to open a file directly without opening the preview first (or right click --> open with).
    Maybe this can be done via a shortcut or a default setting in the user preferences?
    Thanks!

  15. Change "Recents" list functionality

    If a folder is shared with a user, the user sees all files in that folders in his recent list - no matter if the user has accessed the file himself, or the file was accessed by another user where the folder was shared with as well.
    This doesn't make sense from my point of view. Especially in larger teams every day multiple files are generated and which the user never touches.

    Can you please change the functionality of the recent list in a way, that only files appear is the list which have been accessed by the user itself…

  16. Collaboration Email Wording

    The current wording of the collaboration email sent to users can cause confusion due to the name of the sender appearing in the "From" address. Recipients are not noticing the sender’s actual email address and assuming when they reply to the invitation, sent to them by [insert friendly name, e.g., Bob Smith], that their reply was received by Bob Smith.

    The originating invitation sender’s name is included in the Subject line and body of the invitation, can the “friendly name” be removed from the From line? Can additional text be added to the From address that includes an all caps…

  17. Viewing PPTX files via web browser

    There is a pretty glaring glitch with the Web App when viewing PPTX files. It will repaginate the slides. Example, if your cover slide starts at 0, the Box Web App will repaginate the slides starting at 1, which can be confusing to people when trying to reference a specific slide. Once you download the file, then the pagination goes back to normal.

    I'm hoping this gets fixed in an update.

  18. Invite all users who have sent an email to the email address associated with the folder

    currently, Co-admins are manually inviting users to folders.
    Inviting is generated for the number of projects, it takes man-hours each time, so we want to make it easy to invite.

    For example, we would like to have a mechanism that can invite all users who have sent an email to the email address associated with the folder.

    [How to use]
    Generate an email address associated with the folder
    (It is assumed to be something like an email address for uploading emails)
    Give this email address to the user we want to invite
    Each user will send an email to this…

  20. I want to display 'File Description' in the filtering options on the file list.

    I would like to display the 'Description' field configured through file requests in parallel with 'Size' or 'Last Modified' on the file list screen. Having to hover over the 'i' icon every time is inconvenient.

    ファイルリクエストで設定した「説明」の項目を、ファイル一覧画面で「サイズ」や「更新日」と並列に表示させたいです。いちいち「i」のアイコンにマウスオーバーするのは面倒です。
