  1. Make login page more intuitive for non-managed users

    When users or collaborators visit Box from the customer's account, they get confused when they get directed to their SSO page and not the login page.

    A suggestion is to have the user input their username before getting redirected to the SSO page or make the “not a part of COMPANY?” a bigger option and more visible for the user.

  3. Ability to pin a folder to remain at the top of the main Box Web App screen.

    Either a user or an admin should be able to pin a folder.

    Using favorites is the current alternative, but for usability purposes and sharing important content, pinning would be helpful as well

  4. Open Link in New Tab

    Really wish the right click in the web page navigation allowed me to open the link in a new tab so I didn't have to navigate back to the beginning every time I want to open a new folder.

  5. login page Customization

    The login page is very confusing for our external collaborators. Despite the creation of "How to log on to Box" with pictures, external collaborators still click on the wrong link as the "Continue" button (for our managed users) is very large compare to the small font link for the external collaborators. The natural instinct is to click on "Continue" which gives the external collaborator an error since they are not part of the "managed users" and will not be able to SSO to our Box. Our staff is having to help our external customer on regular basis.
    Can the login…

  6. Permanent Folder Tree View in Webapp (Similar to Windows Explorer/Finder)

    Currently we have a 'jump to folder' option that provides a modal for navigating by using a folder tree view. Many customers would like this same tree view of their content as a permanent sidebar in the webapp for faster/easier 1) navigation and 2) context for where they're at in any given folder tree.

  7. 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?

  8. Email Notification Frequency Options - Immediate, Daily Digest, Weekly, etc.

    Box currently provides email notifications as options for end users to 'subscribe' to email notification alerts when content is uploaded, downloaded, previewed, deleted, or commented on. Box currently only provides one 'type' of email notification: instant (which includes automatic batching when events occur within a few minutes of each other).

    REQUEST: Add the ability for users to choose the 'type' of email notification they'd like to enable at the folder level (via Folder Settings):
    --Real-time emails (what we already have today)
    --Daily digest (1 email per day)
    --Additional weekly option (optional)

  9. Notification about Update of File

    If you share a link to a file or folder, is there a way for recipients on that file to be notified that the file has been updated or in the case of a folder that another file has been added?

    For example, when they receive the link, could there be a message that says, if you'd like to get updated about this file/folder enter your e-mail. Then Box has a way of sending them the updates.

  10. Ability to 'Hide' Folders I've Been Added To

    As a user, I've likely been added to numerous folders that I do not need to access daily or even often, but still need to remain a collaborator in. A 'hide folder' option may help with this, where a user would be able to hide a folder form their All Files view, but the user would not actually be removed as a collaborator from the folder. They would then be able to access all 'hidden' folders via a menu option on the left rail (or elsewhere).

    not planned  ·  Stephanie Zhang responded

    Folder sprawl is an interesting challenge many of us face! To combat this, we’re recommending that users use the upcoming ‘Collections’ feature to group together content that’s frequently used vs. hiding content that’s infrequently used.

  11. About the scope of expiration notice to co-owners.

    Currently the expiration of the invited user to a folder is notified to the owner and co-owner of the folder,
    however, any co-owner cannot receive the expiration of the invitee of its child folder while owner receives all the expiration notification.

    We would like to request to cascade the scope of co-owner's privilege to its child folders so that the co-owner of the parent folder can receive all the expiration notification of the descendant folders.

    We currently do not have this planned on our roadmap. Please keep the feedback & use cases coming to help us prioritize this in the future!

  13. Ability to show Full path from root to collaborated folder

    If i have a folder in the following structure
    /1/2/3
    and I invited User B to Folder 3
    When User B access Folder 3 he would have no idea that folder 3 is actually in the path /1/2/3.

    On Box platform however, there is an optional parameter "canviewpath",
    while this can only be used by the folder owner it adds to ability to let collaborator see the folder from root to target folder.

  15. Increase size of left-side menu on Home screen

    The left-side menu on the Home screen is too narrow and cuts off the names of folders/files saved under My Collections/Favorites.

    Users should be able to set whatever width is needed for the menu.

    We are making the overall Box Web App responsive so that users can get the information they need to engage with content effectively instead of improving the UX of each component piecemeal.

  16. Allow user to rotate PDFs by 90 degree increments in Preview

    There are occasions where PDFs are not oriented properly in Preview or user needs to rotate the view to make reviewing easier (i.e.. maps, designs etc.)

  17. Major/minor flagging or differentiation in their version history.

    It is important to be able to manage milestone updates to a single document that can be referred back to, both major and minor.

    Some of this has been compounded by the additional versions created by autosave when using MS Office concurrent editing.

  18. Restrict assigning higher level permissions to external users

    we would like a control to restrict external users from having anything above a set permission level.

    It would also be great if we could review on one screen, external users to see what permission levels is assigned

  19. remove the character limit on invite messages. the message portion is vital my account and sending specific instructions on folder use

    remove the character limit on invite messages. the message portion is vital my account and we need to sending specific instructions on folder use and access. this is best when included with the link to the folder as sent by box. ALSO there is nowhere on the site or in the share section that even states there is now a character limit, instead it's just kicking back the invite and preventing it from being sent.

  20. Allow folder owner to report on collaborators in their folders
