  1. Your browser based video player is slow and doesn't always load files.

    video player is slow and at least 60% of the time I have to download a video because your website won't finish loading. It regularly gets hung up on the last 10% and will just sit there. This issue is destroying my productivity, and I am forced to download the files to my computer just so I can view them. My computer doesn't have infinite space, that's why we pay for your service.

  3. Create a group and then assign them tasks all at once

    When assigning a task we have to add each assignee one at a time. Can we create a group and assign all at once? I send off to 11 and Barbara has 18 names.

  5. View all Incomplete Tasks on a full web page

    We need to be able to view all of our outstanding tasks at once on a full web page (Not just a pop up window). The old Box interface made this possible via Notifications --> Incomplete Tasks. This new update is trash and has removed functionality. Shame on you Box.

  7. Change Task Completed email notification to "Task has been completed."

    Please change Task completion email notifications back to “Task has been completed.” It is currently “Task has been approved.

  8. Hi BOX Team, as we know, Lotus Notes Team Rooms supported and funded by GTS will be shut down.. Let's build a interface with IBM bluegroups

    IBM Bluegroups x IBM BOX .

    Many spreadsheet application today work with bluegroups and DB Notes to a great and automatic access management. With the new notice, DB's will be sunset and we want to migrate to BOX but BOX still dont have an interface with IBIM bluegroups, so all access need to be set manually. If an interface, all users will be set automatically and all access flow will be automatic.

    Example:

    IBM Access Hub or IBM OneTeam -> IBM Bluegroup -> IBM BOX

    This is be very helpfull for many users that need to have a repository control…

  9. Integrate Tasks with personnel systems like Active Directory, Workday

    We want to be able to create rules so that tasks can be assigned to specific individuals based on their reporting relationship. This would allow for a task to be assigned to the appropriate manager when any employee submits certain kinds of requests, perhaps with a file upload. The best way to do this would be with some kind of integration to the HR system of record.

  11. Retain user name in comment/ task even after user is removed.

    When user is removed, all comment/ previous will be display as "Anonymous User". For customer who rely on comment/ tasks it is confusing to keep track on which account posted what.

  12. Request Content Box Task Type

    Upload Content action needs to be optional, not required.My pretty hacky workaround now is for them to create a BoxNote or word doc that says "no content required" and link to that as the upload content step for now.

  14. Overdue task emails are too overbearing

    The overdue tasks emails come every day with no option to ignore/change preferences, so people end up ignoring them.

    We recently revamped our tasks notifications as part of the Tasks and Notifications release earlier this year. That said, we do not currently have plans to add a digest email or more granular preferences. Please share any additional feedback you might have, for consideration in a future release.

  15. Folder level comments and tasks

    Being able to comment or assign a task on an entire folder would be easier than @mentioning a user on one file and referencing 3 or 4 other ones. It would be helpful to assign a task to someone on an entire folder (and not leave that sort of information in the folder description).

    We understand the request, but unfortunately this is not on the near-term roadmap. We will be exploring improvements and enhancements to Tasks in the next 1-2 years and will take this into consideration when we do.

  18. Assign task to groups

    We would like to be able to assign task to specific groups. I.e. asking a whole team to acknowledge that they have seen a specific document.

  19. Lock file upon approval task

    It is often desirable that the file is locked when an approval task is set to ensure that the approval is given on the exact version of a document as it was when the approval was triggered. It would be useful to have the option to lock a file until the approval task has been approved or declined.
