  2. Please stop removing features and services for paying Personal Pro accounts; or give us the chance to upgrade without 3 users min

    I have been paying for Personal Pro since 2014. Since then I have been paying the same amount every month, and have had features and services removed.

    First was tracking file downloads/views. Then this week I lost the ability to make Custom URLs.

    When I asked about my options, I was told that I could upgrade to a Business account; but for that I'd need a minimum of 3 users. I am a freelancer and work by myself. I have no need to pay for 3 users when it's just me.

    I think it's completely unprofessional and unethical to not…

  3. Add sorting and filtering to "My Cases" on Community site

    When I go to "My Cases" on the Box Community site to view open support cases, I have a table with headings ID - SUBJECT - CREATED - UPDATED - PRIORITY - STATUS

    I would love the ability to sort the columns, but that is not an option.
    I do not see any way to display more than 20 cases on a page, so I need to view my cases on different pages.

    There is ONE filter, but it is not so useful, because there are multiple "statuses" that would be useful to see together, such as a way to…

  4. Have a different section/page for Shared links setting on account settings page

    Right now, shared links setting is on "Sharing" tab. This has create a confusion for customer in the following scenario:

    Customer recently switched from company only to open link on admin console settings. They expected that this will change the settings of all managed users, but some users still defaulted to company only link. This was because those users updated email settings before (which happens to be in the same "Sharing" tab) while the "company only" was selected in the Shared Links setting and saved as their individual setting.

  6. Adding Deleted to the "Updates" feature

    We want to know when people in our company are deleting files and folders, and potentially have the ability to preview those deleted files.

    not planned  ·  dfisher responded

    This is not currently planned. One workaround is setting up notifications to let the user know when files are being deleted.

  7. Out of Office Setting for a user profile

    People go on holiday, and people have specific notification settings set for themselves.
    So it would be a nice feature if a user could have a setting in their profile that redirected their notifications to another BOX user or group for a period that they set in their profile. Also remind them when they login that they have the setting turned on as to not redirect for longer than required.

  8. Preserve names when staff leaves

    Add a feature to preserve the names of departed users in the Box Activity comments and tasks and approvals instead of changing their names to "Anonymous User" or "A Prior Collaborator" to preserve records of who was involved in the approval process even if they no longer have active accounts. Additionally, approvals set up by departed users should remain visible and not disappear from the Activity box. This is important for any company using Box as a review or internal control tool.

  9. Ordering Files and Folders in numerical order, rather than Folders first and then Files

    Have the option to have an entire Folder listed by Name (ie, in numerical order) no matter the Folder/File. For example, not listing Folders first and then Files.

  10. Fix the error that appears when you try to create an account password after a shared folder requires a 'stronger' one. It is a loophole

    When a shared folder requires a stronger password, consider a scenario where a user doesn't have any password set up. There is no 'old' password to put in. Attempts to create a password for the account end in 'There was a problem changing your password' message. So basically there is no way to access the protected shared files.

  12. Approval Result Email

    The account that executed the trigger that started the BoxRelay will receive an email with the approval results of the relay, but we would like to limit the notification of the approval results.
    (Ex. No email notification of approval results during the flow, only the final results are emailed, etc.)

  13. Adding a Modified field in box online UI.

    The "Updated" menu really needs to be configured or have a filter to now show Uploaded as an update. This is very important when moving data to box. I've just finished a box shuttle of about 60TB and 15 years of data. Everything is showing as Updated in the last couple of weeks. This makes it near on impossible to find data easily from years ago at a glance. If this filed can't have a filter then we really need another field called "Modified" So it reads as "Name" "Updated" "Modified" "Size" I shouldn't need to get the properties of…

  15. I would like to restrict certain people/groups from accessing version history.

    I would like the ability to limit who can access version history. When interacting with external collaborators, it would be nice to limit them from seeing version history, and only allow them to see the most recent version.

  16. Set Custom Time for File Request or Shared Link expiration

    Have the ability to set an expiration time in the Web App on the Box File Request. The use case is a submission use case where the need is to have uploads shut off at 3pm vs the default of 11:59pm. The ability to set a different time can only be done at the API/CLI level for the Shared Link only and not the File Request. In addition, you can not set a time within the WebApp for either. This functionality could be extended to other use cases with collaborator access shut off at a specific time of day.

  17. Please add the ability for multiple users to modify a single workflow.

    In some cases, such as long vacations, it is very inconvenient if only the workflow creator can perform maintenance.
    This function allows multiple people to edit the workflow, which leads to operational convenience and other benefits.

    (Japanese)
    「1つのワークフローを複数のユーザーで修正できる機能を追加してほしい。」

    長期休暇など、ワークフロー作成者しかメンテナンスを行えないと非常に不便なケースがあります。
    この機能の実装により、複数名で編集することが可能になるため、運用上の利便性等につながります。

  18. Box Pulse ideas - allow screenshots to be added BEFORE approval

    When someone takes the time to provide a Box Pulse idea, it is invariably done at the time that an issue occurs. However, by not allowing screenshots to be added (until after approval), the opportunity to receive valuable screenshots justifying the change/enhancement is often lost, as it may be difficult/impossibly to return to the same situation/location to take new screenshots later. Allow screenshots to be added before approvals

  19. Enterprise account (HIPAA compliance) for ONE

    Please make HIPAA compliance/BA agreement available for Business with only ONE employee. It's not affordable for me to continue to use box if I have to pay for Enterprise Account with a minimum of three users just to get this option.

  20. Create the folder settings that allows only owners to create subfolders

    <We want you to add a feature to the folder settings that "only owners can create subfolders">
    By adding this feature, we can prohibit the creation of folders while granting invitation rights.
    This will prevent collaborators with co-owner and lower permissions from creating folders, which will prevent unnecessary subfolders from being created and will be easier to control.

    <フォルダの設定に「サブフォルダを作成できるのは所有者のみ」という設定を追加してほしい>
    この機能を追加することで、招待権限を与えつつフォルダの作成を禁止することができます。
    これにより共同所有者以下の権限をもつコラボレータはフォルダを作成することができなくなるため、不要なサブフォルダの作成ができなくなり統制がしやすくなります。
