  2. Private comments

    Ability to create a private comment. Right now, all comments are public (all collaborators can see). We would like to have a feature to make the comment private so that only user who posted it can see.

  3. Add URLs and email addresses to collaborator invites

    We would like the ability to have a URL link and email addresses within the body of Collaboration Invites.

    Now URLs are no longer allowed, and our use case was to provide clients we’re sharing data with a link to other pages for context, and an email address for contact, like “alias@domain.com” within the email.

    As a work around, we're forced to generate our own emails manually using shared links, which is more cumbersome, prone to user error and potentially less secure.

  4. Export all Collaborators on an item from Web UI

    As an editor - when I go to a folder, I can see everyone collaborated into that folder.
    On the right hand side, I can click on a user or on an icon that shows + x number people.

    When I do that it opens a page showing a table of users collaborated in.
    Name/ Email address/ Permission / Date Added/ Added To

    I would love a button to click which would simply export a .csv of that table.

    Seems simple as that table is presented on the web page.

    Thanks for the suggestion! While I definitely see the usefulness of being able to export a report of collaborators on an item, we don’t plan to launch this feature in the near term as we’re focused on other various collaboration improvements.

  6. Ability to set folder notifications for external and internal collaborators within a folder.

    Companies with many external collaborators have to walk each user through changing their folder notification settings so the external collaborator will be notified whenever a document is uploaded to a folder. This is extremely manual for us and their external collaborators. It would be easier if folder owners could set folder notifications for everyone within the folder so external collaborators receive the sames notifications as internal collaborators.

    Interesting feature request! However, we’re not able to prioritize it at this time due to competing priorities.

  9. 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.

    (In Japanese)
    共有リンクから編集する事ができる機能がリリースされています。
    リリース時点での設定はBox Noteの設定に準じて「表示とダウンロードおよび編集可能」の状態でリリースされています。
    リリース後にテナント設定で「表示およびダウンロード可能」に設定変更を行いました。…

  11. Request to add the file type "yml" for yaml file to preview

    Currently, BOX preview supports the file type "yaml", but file type "yml" is not supported. The 3 characters file extension (it is same as file type) is general especially Windows environment, so I want to support the "yml" file on preview.

  15. better video preview engine. better video details.

    Does the video preview engine handle x264 or x265 content? The whole industry is moving to x265 so ya better consider that. Does it handle .mkv files? Most of our videos dont preview properly. It shows a still frame but clicking the play icon comes up with an error message.

    You may notice in windows when you click on a video it tells you about the video in detail like 1920x1080, video tracks x264 hi10 L5.0 audio tracks FLAC 51 (Jpn) (Eng) Subtitle tracks PGS Eng SRT Eng.

    would be nice if the details of the file showed this info…

  16. Tags are copied along with the folder/file during a copy action in the Web App

    Currently when you copy a folder with a tag to another location in Box, the tag is not copied as well.

    This is a great idea! Unfortunately we aren’t able to prioritize this ask at this time due to other competing priorities.

  17. Send in-app notification for failed bulk move/copy.

    Box Notification on account (not email notification) for failed moves.

    When copying or moving a large numbers of files, sometimes those moves fail.

    We would like to be notified about files that failed to copy or move

  18. Editor permissions without delete function

    Recently, we had a user delete a very important and large folder that housed 1.4 TB of client data. We have looked into changing permissions for all users to Viewer Uploader from Editor to prevent this from happening again, but this also takes away the ability to MOVE files/folders as well. We would like there to be an option for a role to be introduced that would allow users to have all functions of Editor just WITHOUT the ability to delete.

  19. One-Click shared link generation as Enterprise setting

    The recent change to Box sharing means that you now have up to 3 clicks to get a shared link on your clipboard - click Share, then toggle the link on, then copy to clipboard. This annoys our users, who liked the old way, where clicking Share would automatically generate the link.

    I think this change was motivated by feedback like this, where enterprises that choose to default to People With the Link permission sometimes end up with a lot of accidental open links:
    https://pulse.box.com/forums/909778-help-shape-the-future-of-box/suggestions/36114154-add-second-step-when-creating-shared-link-for-a-fo

    (We, on the other hand, default to just "people in this file" permission.)

    My proposal:…

  20. Cancel all uploads

    A button that allows us to cancel all uploads via the web console. If we mistakenly drag and drop the wrong folder to be uploaded, it would be nice if we could cancel the entire upload instead canceling each individual file. (especially for really big folders with thousands of files)
