  1. Onboarding - Typo on account setup page

    Currently, the onboarding setup flow account creation page contains a typo.

    The page title is "Setup your Box account | Powered by Box" but it should be "Set up your Box account | Powered by Box" instead. This is because the word "setup" is a noun and "set up" is a verb.

    https://app.box.com/onboarding/setupflow

    Example of Incorrect Usage: A user wants to setup their account.
    Example of Correct Usage: A user wants to set up their account.

    Please fix this as this is a user-facing component.

  2. Enable someone to invite others to edit a file or folder through a Shared Link, NOT as a Collaborator

    Enable someone to invite others to edit a file or folder through a Shared Link, NOT as a Collaborator.

    Currently, I can invite someone to edit my files/folders as a collaborator, but I cannot invite them to edit my files/folders through a Shared Link.

    Google Workspace offers this.

  5. Collect user info when a box link is shared with non-box users

    The goal is to require non-box users enter their first, last name and email before accessing a Box shared link set to permission "People with the link".

    I.E, user will click on the link, re-direct to a sign up page requiring first, last name and email. After submitted they are routed to the training videos hosted on Box.

  6. About the uppercase / lowercase letters of email address at the time of invitation

    ■Request
    I would like to set an account to be recognized as a registered account regardless of uppercase / lowercase letters of the email address.

    ■Background
    When specifying a collaborator, if I specify a managed user whose email address contains uppercase letters, in lowercase letters only (or vice versa), the globe icon may be displayed (= displayed as an unmanaged user).

    In the Collaborator list after the collaboration is completed, it is automatically corrected on the Box side, and the globe icon does not appear.
    However, by displaying a globe mark when specifying a collaborator, it may cause confusion that…

  8. Product Support - I need phone support and remote desktop control.

    I have a small business with 6 employees and we all share using box drive. I have spent about 3-5 hours over the past 2 weeks in the "chat" and email support world trying to solve a problem. I need phone support. and I need box to remotely control my desktop to solve problems. I do not have an IT department.

  9. Carbon footprint

    As a customer, can you help me understand what the carbon footprint is of our storage? We are doing a carbon footprinting analysis for our own operations and would be helpful if you have that as an output. Thanks!

  11. Knowledge Base

    It would be amazing if there was a way to have something like box notes or an add on that would allow an article based knowledgebase within box. This would be so helpful for a company wide and public kb in the product that we are using day to day.

  12. I want to use BOX instead of PPAP. PPAP is Japanese bad protocol name that file transfer with email.

    Before, most Japanese company used PPAP to send files with email. PPAP is a jargon that protocol name in JAPAN. PPAP is an idea of "Sending crypted zip file with email and sending password of zip with next email".
    Japanese company used the idea for security. But it didn't work well for security because of using same root sending crypted zip file and password.
    So our Japanese company want to use BOX instead of PPAP. This idea is not collaborating function of BOX. The idea is "Sending files (or folder) URL of BOX to BOX users". When receiver want to…

  13. Setting up Box Edit to open in multiple applications

    Currently, when editing a file in Box Edit, there is only one application based on the extension that can be opened on the desktop.
    If you want to change the program selected by Box Edit, you need to change the registry value (HKEYCLASSESROOT\SystemFileAssociations).
    However, depending on the user's environment, registry operations may be blocked by the administrator and cannot be circumvented in this way.

    Can you please develop a standard feature that allows multiple applications to be selected when opening a file in Box Edit?
    This would greatly improve the efficiency of the work.

    現在Box Editでファイルを編集する際にデスクトップで開く事のできる拡張子に基づくアプリケーションは1つのみです。

  16. I'm a sole proprietor and need your Business Plus features

    Hello, I'm coming back to our exchange on Twitter from earlier today.

    I was a Box user between 2013-18 when my business started to grow and my Box plan became too limited. Also the branding of my file exchange service became a must.

    Back then I wanted to switch to Business Plus but the minimum of 3 payed users made this way too expensive and also simply unreasonable for me as a one-man show. I exchanged various emails with your support and spoke with your office in Munich about whether it was possible to offer a One User Business Plus…

  20. Help

    Hi. It would be great to have photo or video links for the help/how to sections. Some of the wording (at least as a Mac user)doesn't match up with how I normally navigate Mac. Would help avoid having to contact help chat. Thanks!
