  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. Saved Searches

    The ability to "save" a search and be able to go back to it at any point and the latest results would be there.

  8. When inviting users, the permissions window is missing.

    When inviting users to collaborate in Box, a window appears to select the permissions that should be granted.
    However, this window protrudes from the screen and cannot be resized, and the uploader's permissions are missing.
    This is handled by reducing the browser's magnification, but depending on the monitor being used, the magnification may have to be reduced to 67%-80%, which is inconvenient. Please make it possible to scroll through the authority windows to see all the cases.

    In Japanese:
    Boxでユーザーをコラボレーション招待する際、付与する権限を選択するウィンドウが表示されます。
    しかし、このウィンドウは画面からはみ出していて、サイズを変更することもできないため、アップローダーの権限が見切れてしまいます。
    ブラウザの倍率を下げることで対応していますが、使用しているモニターによっては倍率を67%~80%まで下げなければならず不便です。
    権限ウィンドウをスクロールして全件確認できるようにしてください。

  9. 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.

  10. Default sort by date to descending (most recent first)

    The default sort order is Alphabetical by folder name. When I sort by Updated date, it defaults to ascending -- oldest items first. I'm most often looking for something in a folder that was updated very recently; I would prefer that the default for sorting by Updated date be descending -- newest items first.

  11. Expose Metadata (EXIF, Codec, Duration, DPI, Resolution, Rating, etc.) with a "Properties" or "Get Info" like appraoch

    Both Windows and macOS can easily expose more info - this includes the rich metadata in any kind of file.

    It'd be nice to have an "All Properties" or "More Info" type of file that displays a files full metadata.

    This data is already baked into the file and only needs to be exposed or indexed for display/searching.

    Examples:
    EXIF (camera, model, photographer, exposure settings, etc.), IPTC (keywords, location, description), Movie FPS, Movie Duration, Movie Codec, Movie Audio Channel Count, Image Resolution, Image DPI, Office Document Author, etc.

    Workflow:
    User looking for specific video could find all clips longer than…

  12. Multiple files in one shared link

    We would like to send multiple documents from separate folders in a single shared link.

    Currently when you select multiple files, you are limited to files within one folder, and the files are sent with a shared link for each file.

    Possible solve: "Bundle zone" in the web UI where you could drag and drop files from different folders, and once you have all the ones you want, tell it to generate a single shared link which would display like a folder to the recipient, without the user having to rearrange their content.

  14. Customization of SSO login screen

    Further allow branding customization and controls on login screen. We do not use "network usernames" and as such it can be confusing for users.

    Thank you for this suggestion. I understand the use case. However, we do not plan to accommodate that level of customization at this time.

  15. Add ability for users to open a folder in Box Drive from the Web App

    Add some kind of "open in Box Drive" option for a folder. Clicking this would cause Box Drive to open the appropriate folder locally.

    This seems like it would be better solved with a search improvement to Box Drive. If not, let us know in the comments.

  16. Ability to customize email notification text

    Is it possible to customize the text of email notifications? Ideally we'd like to customize text for uploads to different folders.

  17. Separate shared links for internal and external users.

    We want to be able to share links internally and externally. External shared links should only be available for 10 days while internal shared links should not expire.

    Interesting suggestion! However, this is not planned at this time due to competing priorities.

  18. Remove the login button from a shared link preview.

    Login buttons do not belong in a link that is mean for viewing a document.

  19. Bulk Move Items that are not Updated for a Certain Period of Time

    We would like to request for a function that automatically moves items which the last updated date is earlier than a certain period.

    For example, if there are items that includes personal data, and those items are not updated for a long time, Box automatically moves those items to a different folder, where access is limited to admins only.

  20. Update "Not Part of Company" Text to Look Like a Button

    When you share a folder or document with a client who is not a part of your organization they receive an email, they then create a login, they are then sent to a page that says "Company uses your network username and password to login to Box. Continue to login to Box through your network." There is then a Continue button and then text that read "Not part of Company" All 66 of my clients have clicked on the button and not on the text because the text does not look click-able. It would be fantastic if that text could…
