  1. Specify a dynamic port for "OAuth 2.0 Redirect URI”

    Following the "LoopbackInterfaceRedirection" specification described in "RFC 8252 OAuth 2.0 for Native Apps", I would like to configure Box to receive the authentication code on an unused free port on Windows and send it to the Box custom app configuration screen (https://app .box.).
    However, it is not possible to specify a dynamic port for the "OAuth 2.0 Redirect URI" in the Box custom app configuration screen (developers/console/app/xxxx/configuration).
    I would like you to specify the dynamic port as per the specification of "LoopbackInterfaceRedirection" described in "RFC 8252 OAuth 2.0 for Native Apps".

  2. Enhance Box for Gmail attachments, to show recent files.

    When attaching a file I just worked on, I often need to click through five or more pages of alpha-sorted folders to find the file I want. Recents don't always populate as I would expect. Could we have a toggle for the folder view to sort by Recents OR Alphabetical, especially in Favorites? Or make the default sort by most recent first for all views?

  3. We would like Box to have a secure calendar available for office use.

    We would love if Box had their own calendar available for office use. I work for a mobile anesthesiologist. We use Box to store patient info/files. Right now we use Google calendar for scheduling purposes, but can't put any patient information on it, as it's not secure. It would be great if Box had a secure calendar that we can use for scheduling. Mostly we would like if we can copy a patient's file to the day they are scheduled, so all of the info the doctor needs for the day is all in one place.

  4. 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。

  5. Embedded Widget Video or Link Video

    For Videos that are Tagged for View Only (Embedded or Link) types... Remove the Log in and Sign Up options on the Top Right of the Video Player. My goal is to eliminate the possible Move away from my Web Page that is presenting the Video so that I can take full advantage of my Visitor's presence.

  6. Shared Link Dashboard

    Customers want to have the ability for a user to see and manage a dashboard of all the shared links they own. Admins should be able to get a global view within the tenant. The dashboard should show if a link is public or has an expiration date and allow the user to modify it as such.

  8. Improved messaging for "Share" dialog box and handling of Links

    I have been using Box for a couple of years and still find the Share function and creation of Links very confusing and non-intuitive. For example, what are "Invited People?" and how are they different than 'People with the Link?" Why have 2 different places to copy the link? One is on the first dialog box and it appears that one takes the viewer to Box.com and they can view or download the file, but then if you click on "Link Settings" adifferent dialog box opens and there is another link you can copy. This one says Direct Link above…

  9. Ability to have Automatic sorting enabled post file rename

    It would be nice to have Box simply update a name after the file has been renamed. As of right now, it's difficult to start on a folder renaming image files, closing out, then coming back in and all of the files have been automatically sorted alphabetically, which is a nightmare for images that have ascending or descending filenames. If we could just save changes as-is and have everything still in place when we log back in after closing out of the folder, that would be very useful so that one could simply pick back up where they left off.

  10. Document ID on Documents

    We would love to be able to have the document ID either added to the document itself, say in the footer, or be added to the name of the document when opening.

    That is pretty standard for most document management systems these days.

    You will see documents named "12345 v2 Settlement Case" (where the v2 normally indicates the version of the document). It would be nice to be able to have this set at the user level so the user can decide if the doc ID and version are necessary for them.

  11. Templates for Comments

    When someone sends me a document I did not ask for ... I want to know three things ... what is it ... why are you sending this to me ... and what, if anything, do you want me to do with it ...? Would be nice if I could create a template for comments, like we have in notes, where someone could select a custom template (like the one I just described) and answer it in the comments section of a document.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…
