  1. Always Show Show/Hide Option for Hiding Left Sidebar

    The left sidebar in the new Web App auto-hides at smaller window size (due to responsive design), but some users would like the show/hide option for the left sidebar to always be shown (like the button already is for the right sidebar) to allow for increased space for the file list columns (Name, Modified, Size).

    REQUEST: Always display the show/hide button for the left sidebar, regardless of the window size.

    We’re aware that the lack of space to show file and folder names is an issue. We’re working on addressing this in different ways.

    We’ll keep this in mind! However, this is not currently planned. Let us know additional use cases which this would resolve.

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

  4. Add print functionality under "more options" tab on file level list instead of having to go to preview or open the file

    Currently it is only possible to print a document from the preview window or by opening the document.

    Request: consistency of experience and adding an option on the file list level (under More Options)

  5. File Request+Metadata issue : Unexpected changing number via mouse operation

    When requesting a number field of metadata with a file request link, the number may changes unintentionally due to the user's scrolling the mouse.
    Can you improve the input field of the file request so that it is not affected by mouse scrolling?

  6. Flexibility to adjust column settings on the left panel

    Flexibility to adjust column settings on the left panel - where favorites are listed. It is very small and you can not see the entire field name.

    This field is stationary and will not adjust.

  7. Notify me when a file is unlocked by another collaborator

    When a file is locked for editing by another user, on a case-by-case basis, I would like to be notified via email when that file is unlocked.

    Either:

    1. a file-setting that always notifies me after a user unlocks a specific file or
    2. a one-off subscription to a file when it is locked that I can set that notifies me via email when that file is unlocked. After this one-off notice occurs, the subscription would be deleted.

  8. Ability to disable the feature to send shared link by email.

    When the customer send email to external user, it is necessary to put superiors in CC according to their company rules.
    This feature does not match the company rules because it can not put anyone in CC, so they want to disable it to prevent users send email without approve.

  9. Sort underscores consistently

    We would like for Box to sort files and folders the same as our computers. Right now, files and folders with an underscore at the beginning of the name are sorted at the end, but our computers sort them at the beginning.

  11. Revert to former UX for selecting files/folders (no more check boxes)

    In order to select multiple files or folders in the Box Web App you now have to use the checkboxes which are only visible when you hover over the file/folder all the way to the right.

    Previously, you could select multiple files and folders by clicking on the file or folder icon on the far left, and didn’t have to bother with checkboxes. The suggestion is to revert to the former UX for selecting files/folders

  13. Export the accessing users area and their IP addresses to the access statistics reports

    It will be more convenient if the accessing users area and their IP addresses is exported in the access stats report.

    We can see the areas where the accessing users are and their IP addresses in "the access stats dialog box".
    However, when we export access statistics, we can't export the above information.

    As we know, the activity reports can help us as a way to see the user's operation history and IP address,
    But I think those information should be exported to the access statistics reports, not just displayed in the dialog box.

  14. Add "ent" to the URL of the shared link

    Please add "ent" to the URL of the shared link.

    Currently, "ent" is not appended to the URLs of shared links issued by tenants who have enabled the Box Verified Enterprise feature.

    In certain countries and regions, access to "box.com" may not be possible.
    One effective way to get around this is to access Box from a URL with "ent.box.com".

    When a shared link is issued by a BVE tenant, if the URL has "ent" attached to it, there will be fewer actions by the customer beyond that point, making the interaction smoother.

    (日本語)
    共有リンクのURLに「ent」を付加してください。

    現在、Boxベリファイド Enterprise機能を有効にしたテナントにおいて、発行した共有リンクのURLに「ent」が付加されません。

    特定の国や地域では「box.com」へのアクセスができない場合があります。
    これを回避するための有効な手段として「ent.box.com」がついたURLからBoxにアクセスするというのがあります。

    BVEのテナントで共有リンクを発行した際にURLに「ent」が付いた場合、その先のお客様によるアクションが減るため、やり取りがスムーズになります。

  15. Opening multiple files at once

    It would greatly improve flow and user experience to be able to open multiple PDFs at once. Our team must review numerous individual PDFs, and we have only ever been able to open one PDF at a time. It becomes a tedious task to open each individual PDF.

  16. Keep Company Branding Banner with new Box Web Experience and Collections

    One of the reasons I really like Box (enterprise version), was that my users felt like we were using a 'custom to our firm' cloud-product. The beta version of your new Box Web Experience and Collections removes the company branded banner across the top; instead leaving only our logo placed next to my profile picture in the corner. Doesn't look customized enough; instead I'm one of a thousand companies using it. The green side bar running down the left of the screen is too much - reminds me of an animated cartoon. When released, I hope the ability to keep…

  17. symlink support

    Would be most excellent to add support for symbolic links in uploads 🙏

    Motivation
    We archive and share private pre-releases of iOS frameworks on Box. These frameworks inherently contain symbolic links. So when they're downloaded, the symbolic link pointing to the true header directory is borked and Xcode is unable to compile the given framework.

    On the plus side, lack of this support is good incentive for us to move to a better distribution system for these frameworks.

    See details on community ticket for current Box symlink behavior details:
    https://community.box.com/t5/custom/page/page-id/BoxViewTicketDetail?ticket_id=1961727

  18. Request for Supporting HTML tags for File Request.

    Currently, there is no way to add HTML tags(i.e line break) into the title and instructions for “Customer’s Option” in the File Request
    due to the explicitly prevented for security concerns. Since we cannot use line break for instructions, it is hard to read if the customer enter long sentence for the instructions.

  19. viewer uploader edit file name, delete and copy file

    Viewer uploader cannot edit file name, delete and copy file. Therefore need to add permission almost Editor without inviting collaborator.

  20. Download all versions of a single file at once

    If a file has multiple versions, it would be great to be able to download all these versions at once in a single Zip file.

    For exemple, if I have a Word file named "test.docx" with 247 versions of it, you would be able to download a single file named "test.zip" containing 247 Word files, named "test(1).docx", "test(2).docx", …, "test(247).docx".
