  2. Separate Move / Copy buttons

    Please consider improving this within Amsterdam

    There are a number of use cases that can be supported by separating the Move / Copy button into unique buttons:

    1) Folder or file templates: Users with Viewer access (can download) should be able to COPY a file or folder elsewhere. Currently this is not supported -- the user must download, which loses BoxNotes and Bookmarks.

    2) Separating "records" from reference material -- If Retention is set on a file, the user may want to copy a version elsewhere that is not subject to Retention

    Interesting suggestion, but we won’t be focusing on this ask for the time being due to competing priorities.

  3. Only allow users to set shared link expiration up to the Enterprise setting limit

    When setting up a shared link in Box, we want the user to be able to set the expiration up to the Enterprise setting, but not beyond the Enterprise setting.

    A shared link with a shorter expiration time is more secure but less convenient. The security level varies depending on the content, so it would be desirable for users to be able to set an expiration date below the Enterprise setting.

    Managed users set expiration dates beyond their Enterprise settings, allowing content to be accessed for unintended periods of time.

  4. Bulk Shared Link Generation

    A user level ability to generate shared links in bulk in Box webapp. A little background, we are supplying images of our product to major dept stores (think Macy's, Dillards, Nordstrom, Kohl's, etc). These are the images they used to post our product on their web sites. We essentially have to fill out their forms with our product attributes with links to the image. We create 1000's of products annually, this my need to have a listing of all the links.

  6. Add support for File name sensitivity

    Box currently doesn’t support the notion of file sensitive file and directory names like Linux does, so backups to Box, for example with rclone, lose similarly named files that only vary in case.

    For example, you can only have File1.txt and file1.txt, but no both in Box.

    In comparison, there’s no such limitation in Google Drive and Linux file systems, for example.

    Please add support for file name sensitivity.

  7. Add ability to change sort order of comments

    In the latest UI, comments on files are sorted in chronological order instead of reverse chronological order. I'd like the option to change my sort order so that newest comments are listed first.

    not planned  ·  Brad Monroe responded

    As part of the usability enhancements rolling out in the update noted here here – https://community.box.com/t5/Box-Product-Updates/Simplified-Sharing-Public-Beta/idi-p/64620 – we updated the Activity sidebar in Preview to sort comments with the latest comment at the bottom, aligning with the comment composer’s location at the bottom and to make way for future updates planned for the sidebar. As a result, we don’t plan to change sort order.

  8. Make folder/file description visible again under the File/Folder name vs new details pane

    Description of file/folder has been moved to the details pane on the right side. My customer is seeing this as a regression and not as user friendly as before and would like to see description to come back under folder/file name (like in old UI) as opposed to the Details pane in New UI

  9. Ability to change default collaborator level globally

    Customer is requesting the ability to change the default collaborator level upon adding a new collaborator. The default level is now Editor, but the customer wants to set the default to Viewer Uploader or something else to protect against provisioning too much access to users.

    Additionally, the customer wants to collaborate with many customers (external users) and would like to provision appropriate access to those users (preferably not Editor).

    Thank you for your feedback! At this time, we cannot prioritize this feature request, however, we will keep this in mind for future iterations of our account creation experience.

  12. Enhance and support the Box Embed Widget for mobile browsers.

    We outsource hosting and presenting documents to Box. We allow our users to upload documents in our app and we upload them to Box via API. Later on, when users want to view the file, we ask the Box API for an iframe URL and embed it in our app. So, in the end, no one is logged in to any box applications, because we use the API under the hood.

    Thank you for the submission. We are currently collecting use cases and feature requests for the Box Embed widget, and are considering it for update in a future planning cycle. We do not have a timeline for this at present, but ask you to continue to submit feedback here in the meantime.

  13. Ability to set email notifications at each folder level

  14. Disable Folder Rename capability

    I would like to have a Folder properties setting to disable Folder Rename (even for Editors).

    I was testing setting up departmental folders to replicate our group file server. I want all members of the department to be able to add/remove/delete files in their folder. I was able to do that by assigning them the editor role, but that allows them to change the root level folder name. Is there a way to prevent that?

    For instance, I create folders for accounting, finance, etc. I want those folders to keep the names I set and I do not want the…

    Interesting suggestion, but we’re not able to prioritize this given competing priorities.

  15. Filter search for "Files with all tags" when searching with tags

    Currently when you search for multiple tags you receive results for anything with any of those tags. It would be very helpful to be able to filter this result to something like "Only show files with all of these tags"

  16. New Shared Link Setting for OTP to Specific Email Addresses

    Proposing a new Shared Link setting or type that allows users to send a shared link to a specific email address which requires a OTP password, similar to the authentication used when an individual is sent a Sign Request via Box Sign.

    This would allow for a simpler, more secure user experience when sharing one-off links than password-protecting a public link.

  17. 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…

  18. customize permissions that preserve watermarking on downloaded content

    High urgency request for the ability to customize permissions that preserve watermarking on downloaded content. Currently only “Viewers” preserve the watermark when downloading content.

    We’d like to allow customers to customize the permissions that can preserve the watermark e.g. Editors, Co-Owners, Owners.

  19. Downloading Empty Folders

    We noticed and it's confirmed with Box Support that the Box service treats "empty folders" inconsistently depending on which Box mechanism is used.

    Empty folders are not created if we download folders via the Web interface. Empty folders are created via Box Sync. We are finding that this inconsistent behavior is creating confusion for our users and a mistrust in the Box service. Can you rectify the inconsistent behaviour?

    Thank you for this suggestion! This is a low priority because it’s a very narrow use case. Changing this functionality does not impact a large enough user base.

  20. Option to disable notifications for collaborator invites being accepted

    Users can get spammed if they send folder collaboration invites to a group and the organization's default settings are to auto-accept collaboration invites. The option to disable notifications for accepting collaborator invites would be useful in this circumstance.

    Thank you for your suggestion. We currently don’t have any plans to update the current email notifications flow, but will return to this suggestion later in the year. Please stay tuned!
