  1. HTML should be rendered in Preview mode again

    HTML files appear to no longer be rendering the HTML. Instead, they are just showing me the content of the HTML code.

  2. Add "Dimensions" info under "File properties"

    To be able to see the dimensions of an image is an extremely valuable feature for designers to review and "QC" all of the marketing assets without having to download all the files.

    Thank you for the suggestion. While we definitely understand the value of displaying dimensions for image files, this functionality is not currently planned on our near term roadmap. Please continue to add comments and suggestions here to help us prioritize in the future.

  3. viewer uploader edit file name

    Would like to explore a custom permission level - between Viewer-Uploader and Editor, which would have all of the Viewer-Uploader rights, as well as the ability to "Edit File Name".

    The use case for this is the following - some users upload documents to a folder, but then need to be able to rename the documents. Renaming the documents before upload isn't an option due to specific workflow constraints. Giving Editor permission is not an option as there's been negative experiences with users accidentally moving or deleting customer folders.

    Thanks

  4. Locking Folder Names

    We have systems integrating with folders on Box.com. These functions either provide workflow timestamps, or move files from folder to folder. In order for these integrations to work seamlessly, folders cannot be accidentally or purposely renamed.

  5. Apply classification labels with move/copy operations to folders as well.

    ■Apply classification labels with move/copy operations to folders as well.

    The current classification label assignment is checked against the events for the files in the Box.

    When there are multiple files that need to be moved/copied, it is time-consuming to specify each file individually, and the folders to move/copy to become cumbersome.
    Therefore, we would like to apply the current behavior to folders as well.

    ■移動/コピー操作を伴う分類ラベルの付与をフォルダにも適用する

    現在の分類ラベルの付与は、 Box 内のファイルに対するイベントに対してチェックがなされます。

    移動/コピー操作が必要なファイルが複数存在する場合、個別に指定して操作する手間が生じたり、
    移動/コピー先のフォルダが煩雑になってしまい業務効率の低下が生じます。
    そのため、現在の動作をフォルダにも適用することを希望します。

  6. I would like to see BoxWeb implement a function to sort files by extension.

    The current BoxWeb does not allow sorting by file extension.
    However, in some fields, a large number of photos and videos are often taken for measurement and development work, and many types of files are miscellaneously stored in a single folder.

    For example, when searching for image files (.png/.jpg/etc...) For example, if you are looking for image files (.png/.jpg/etc...), you can search for them by file name, but you may also want to check them by file extension.

    We currently use a method of dividing files into categories by file type, such as blocks of image files, blocks of video…

  7. Generate Shared Links as a Relay Outcome

    Would like the ability to automate generating shared links on files within Box Relay as an outcome. One use case for this would be to create a process for generating external shared links. Many security-conscience customers don't want everyone to have the ability to shared content externally without some sort of approval or oversight. If we added generating and sharing shared links as an outcome in Relay we could build approval flows that would allow users to get approval to share a file externally even if they don't have the access do so.

  8. Support Drag & Drop from Box Web App to Outlook

    Please enable the ability to drag and drop files FROM Box Web App TO Outlook email client (including the option to insert them as links OR to add them as normal attachments). Currently there is no native Drag and Drop functionality available between the Box Web App and Outlook. Therefore, the process to add file attachments/links to emails via the Web App or Outlook Plug-In is actually currently LESS efficient with BOX than without it. Since BOX Drive is not available for virtual clients (such as Terminal Server or Citrix), their only option is to use the Web App or…

    It would be beneficial to be able to show all duplicate content where files are identical.

  11. Allow custom logo in Box notifications

    If we upload our logo in our custom branding (enterprise settings > custom set up) it will not show in email notifications sent from Box. Instead, it will show the standard Box logo and colors. White labelling notifications is important to mimic our portal and avoids unnecessary Platform development.

  12. Colorized folder icons for externally shared folders

    An external indicator exists today as part of the External Access Indicators release via the details sidebar of a folder.

  13. Shared Folder Page: Add the Ability to Search

    The shared folder page does not currently have the ability to search, meaning users must manually navigate through (potentially) pages of folders to find the relevant file.

    REQUEST: Add the ability to perform searches when viewing a Shared Folder page as a non-collaborator.

    For example, if a customer is using open shared links as a way to host a 'Brand/PR Assets' library with subfolders for logos, imagery, etc., the users are unable to quickly locate the file they need amongst the subfolders. Search would help with this.

    This is a great suggestion, and I can definitely see the usefulness of such a feature. Based on current priorities, I don’t foresee us being able to implement this feature in the short-term.

  14. 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.

  15. Ability to rearrange the image files displayed on Box Drive and Box Web

    For image files (photos), such as jpg and png files, there is a Date taken item in the "Properties".
    On Box Drive and Box Web, We wants to organize the photos by descending or ascending order based on the Date taken.
    However, since [Box Drive] and [Box Web] do not have the Date taken attribute, files cannot be organized by the date and time they were taken.
    Thus, we would like you to add the Date taken attribute.

  16. The "Other Options" menu is missing

    The menu display of "Other Options" is cut off.
    I want the menu display to be always displayed in its entirety.

    When files and folders are at the top of the screen, "Other Options" may not be displayed at all.

  17. Folder color and icon customization

    Current UI, it is not easy to recognize which folder is important in visually.
    If we can customize folder color and icon by importance, it is going to be easy to discriminate between folders and it is improve security.

  18. Collapse sidebar on right hand side (Activity / Details / Metadata) by default

    Give users ability to decide at either account or folder settings level whether content opens up in full screen (i.e. marketing video etc) with the side bar on right hand side collapsed by default.

    They can then click if they want to open the sidebar to check on Activity / Details / Metadata

  20. Embed - Add Ability to Remove Header from Embed Widget

    In the legacy UI embed widget, there was a parameter in the code to not show the header, which was a great option as we want a streamlined embed widget.

    In the new UI embed widget, this option has been removed, meaning the header is ALWAYS shown, which can be a major UI distraction for various embed use cases.

    REQUEST: Re-add the ability to remove/hide the header within the embed parameters.

    Thanks for the suggestion! This is an awesome idea, but due to competing priorities, this is feature request not currently on our immediate roadmap.
