  2. 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?

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. Disable version history deletion for the entire tenant

    To comply with Japan's Electronic Bookkeeping Law, transaction documents are stored in Box, but there is always a risk that the files may be modificated with or deleted.

    File deletion and modification can be restricted by retention policies, etc., in addition to folder level of access.
    Deletion of version history can also be restricted by folder access permissions.
    However, users who have been granted editor or higher privileges can delete version history, and there is no other way to control this.

    Request the ability to control the deletion of version history in tenant settings.

    (Japanese)
    テナント全体でバージョン履歴の削除を無効にする

    日本の電子帳簿保存法遵守の為、取引関係の書類をBoxに保存しているため、ファイルの変更、削除されてしまうリスクが常に潜んでいます。
    ファイルの削除、変更の制限は、フォルダのアクセス権限以外にリテンションポリシー等で制限をすることができます。

    バージョン履歴の削除もフォルダのアクセス権限で制限できます。
    しかし、編集者以上の権限が付与されているユーザーはバージョン履歴が削除できてしまい、他に制御する方法がありません。

  9. Box Web App Clicking on Files

    I've noticed with the recent update to the web ui, that you can no longer click on a file without box wanting to automatically wanting to open the file. In the past, you had options like download, delete, move, etc... Can an option be added to the admin center to re-enable this option for users? Thanks.

  10. Ability to change the initials format in Box

    Initials are heavily used in Box and I want the ability to change the format of how these are displayed as currently the only option is first letter of first name and surname (Joe Doe becomes JD), for companies that use non-standard email addresses, initials are different.

  11. Editable shared link to take precendence over collaborator permission

    Collaborator permissions currently take precedence over shared link permissions. As a result, users accessing an editable shared links can't edit a file if they have viewer permission on the folder. In our case, we have an open folder accessible to all staff as viewer with all content accessible from our intranet. We would like to be able to create editable shared link for users to contribute to selected files.

  12. File Comments - Proposal to add comment previews in a hoover window

    An idea that I have thought about sharing is to make comments visible in a preview window when you hoover over OR when you tap one time on files. This would make it faster for users because currently each files comments are stored within the [!} of each file and only visible one at a time when they are clicked on.

    I propose to have an additional view where you can simply hoover over or tap one time on any file a window will appear showing a scrollable list of comments. The comments would allow the user to select and…

  13. Notification bubble in Grid View for Comments

    I'd like the notification bubble for comments to be returned to the grid view and not ONLY be available in list view. I have some employees that use this feature and now they have to toggle back to list view to see if there are comments of files that have been provided -vs- being able to see them at a glance in grid view as before.

  14. Warning about creating folders with invalid characters

    The web application does not currently warn users about creating folders with invalid characters. For example, if you create a folder name that ends in a period [.] via the web, that folder never comes down to the Box client on a Windows machine. This is a limitation of windows.

    However, other cloud providers WARN users before creating the folder in the first place and some even prevent the creation of the folder (Egnyte for instance).

    A warning of "The folder you are creating contains an invalid character that may not be visible to users on Windows machines" or something…

  15. Make scroll bar wider

    When viewing a CSV file via Box's web portal/app, would love to see the tiny thin scroll bars made wider. (This form won't let me upload a screenshot of exactly what I'm referring to).

  16. "Are you sure" pop-up when dragging & and dropping folders

    I'd like a pop-up message confirming if I'm sure to appear when trying to drag and drop folders on the web app. Especially in a GxP environment this is important to reduce risk of human error.

  17. Sharing UI

    More clearly subdivide the "Sharing" panel between the upper "Invite People" section and the lower "Share Link" section. The minutely thin gray line between the two doesn't adequately differentiate the two options. New users will tend to complete both options when only one sharing method is needed.

  19. Cannot see # of files in current folder (without subfolders)

    In order to get the # of files in a given folder, I have to look at the total files for that folder from the parent directory, and go through each subfolder and subtract from the total. This is a very silly way to do this and seems to be an oversight. Can BOX add this data?

    Same thing applies to folder size as well.

    The "Details" tab should include: Current folder: # of files, Current folder: size, Current folder / subfolders : # of files, Current folder / subfolders: size.

  20. Preview support for .MXF files

    MXF is an industry-standard file format for video and audio. MXF files contain information about the media inside (metadata). This file type is commonly used by marketing teams for video content. Requesting previewing support on Box Web App for .MXF files to allow easy external collaboration on this content.
