  1. Improve Sharing Sidebar UI

    In the Sharing Sidebar, how about moving "Shared Link" and "File Request" to the top and then using all that sidebar real estate down the right side to allow a longer list of permissions to be seen without having to click into the Collaborators menu? Will make reviewing/managing permissions by folder more efficient. Alternatively, instead of "+10 People, + 2 Groups," why not describe that menu: "Full Collaborator List" or something like that.

  3. Leave the username on approval tasks intact even after account deletion

    It is hard to trace approval history on a file after the related users are deleted. This causes a lot of friction with customers. It would be better if all usernames would stay on approval tasks even after their respective accounts are deleted.

  4. Allow folders or files to show up in multiple places but be the same object

    This is a feature request.

    I notice that sometimes team members copy or upload the same document to multiple locations in the same workspace or within the same workspace. For example, there is a shared folder with multiple sub-folders within it. The same file may live within many of those sub-folders. These are all separate files, so if someone uploads a new version of that file somewhere else, the other files are an older copy of that file.

    The request would be to allow some way to show, or link to, a file that is elsewhere in the space within…

  5. Have a better way to show 'Full File Paths' for 'subfolders' in the web-app

    Since people can be invited to folders that have the 'same name' it can be hard to identify in your 'All Files' view which folder is in which account.

    Since you don't want to accidentally drop files in a folder that is shared with people outside your organization or vice-versa, it would be helpful to have a better way to identify which folder is from which account / directory structure.

    For now the recommended guidance is to have the full file path of you directory structure in the sub folders so personnel can see which sub folders are from which…

  6. Improve Move operation to offer choices when destination folder already has file of same name

    Currently, if a number of files are selected to move to another location, if the destination location already has filename(s), Box simply advises that the moves for those files has 'Failed', and lists then 'already exists in the folder '....'

    Box should instead, like other products, offer a pop-up window, indicating the filenames, locations, dates last modified, (and additionally, if any files are signed), with the option for user to select/unselect file(s) to overwrite or ignore. Filenames selected/ticked would then be moved, together with other files where no match was found.

    To simply offer no choice, leaves the user knowing…

  7. Enable users to select alternative applications to open files with in Account Settings\Integrations, other than MS office - such as for imag

    The application used to open some filetypes is 'hard-wired'. Users are not offered option to select the application 'to open with'. For example, images can only be opened in MS Paint when opened from Box on Web.

    Box should either A) offer the option to select an application to open with (for applications where viewer shows content, or B) should refer to the PC/laptop's Settings\Default apps and use that application

    For example, Box displays a preview of an image (jpg/png) selected, but when Open button selected, only MS Paint is offered to open the file. The world has moved on…

  8. Hide unknown/system access record from Contents Insight activity

    To avoid end user confusion, we’d like to request that the activity on content insight only focuses on identified user-related action to the end user. The current activity includes some system related and/or unknown access (not box users), however, this may cause user confusion. Preferably, we’d like to show those systems related and/or unknown access to admin/co-admin only on the Admin console.

  9. Thumbnail resizing

    You've eliminated resizing buttons for thumbnails. Customer chat referred to this as an "enhancement". That's like calling a building fire "heating enhancement". Customer service stated that window resizing makes the thumbnails bigger. That's not true. Even if it WERE true, it's much more convenient to resize thumbnails in whatever window size works for me. Maybe you think eliminating the plus and minus buttons and the slider between them provides a less cluttered, more elegant look. I don't. Please restore this useful and needed feature ASAP.

  10. File Request should be back to the original page after uploading

    When multiple files are uploaded one by one (e.g. with different metadata), users need to visit the url every time upload completes. It would be time-saving if it goes back to the original page after completion of upload

  11. Allow managed users to limit the method of file access on an individual file level

    Allow managed users to limit the method of file access and editing through the Box web portal to limit formatting and function incompatibilities between Office Online and Google App Suite.

  12. Grid View - Sorting After Searching

    When searching through our folders we will always use Grid View for the sake of seeing the preview images to determine which file we are looking for. However, after numerous discussions with the Box Support team, I was told this wasn't a bug, but how the feature is intended, which is absolutely shocking to me. Why does List View searching work fine, but Grid View does not?

    Upon entering an invoice number and searching for it, if we select to see the most updated files the search terms completely reset and we see every single file within our Box account.…

  16. Hide Apps Link from Blue Left Menu

    Our organization is using Box to store controlled information so to best control the sharing of our documents we are only enabling a very limited number of 3rd party app integrations. We have disabled most of the apps via Enterprise settings. However users still can see the Apps menu and we are receiving a lot of negative feedback related to integrations available that as an Enterprise we will not enable. Is it possible to hide the "Apps" in the Blue left menu for non-admin users via group or other action?

  17. Display folder path under file/folder listings

    For example, for a folder "Project 1" several levels down in the Box hierarchy, display the folder path under the folder name:

    Project 1
    All Files > Level 1 > Level 2 > Level 3 > Level 4

    The folder path would be in a font smaller than the folder name and a slightly muted colour compared to the folder name

  18. 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.

  19. Default sort only savable from All files page

    The default file sort (name or last updated) can not be saved as a default. When refreshing the page it goes back to the last sort that you used on the "All Files" page.
    Similar to other online file sharing platforms, when you change teh default sort to name or last modified it saves that sort for all other folders. On Box.com if you change the default sort to by last modified on the All Files page it then applies that as the default sort for all other sub folders. I found this bug with Box support after entering a…

  20. Accurate display of number of files

    Fixed the problem of inconsistent number of files

    Inconsistencies in the number of files can occur when large amounts of data are owned or moved for business purposes.
    There is a workaround for this in the support page, but it does not work in some cases.
    Even if we can confirm the exact number of items in the report, the size may differ due to data inconsistencies.
    We feel that it is inconvenient for business use to not be able to accurately grasp the number of data.
    Please fix the inconsistency of the number of files.
