  1. Ability to lock file to prevent other users from editing a file

    Lock and Unlock feature: The lock feature should be set so that when the Person A locks a file so that they can work on the file, it should prevent the others listed on the Share from being able to Unlock the file. It defeats the purpose of locking the file if someone else can just unlock it while Person A is still in the midst of editing a file. The only person outside of Person A who should have the option is the Owner and Co-owner of the Box folder. All others like Editor, Viewer etc, should NOT be…

  2. Transition from Sandbox to Production

    When transitioning from the Sandbox to the Production environment, a tool to automate the transfer of all configuration settings (and relay settings) from the Sandbox to Production would be very helpful. It would also help to prevent errors that can occur with a manual transition.

  3. Automatic update of Box tools from the company LAN via a proxy.

    Box Tools automatic update fails in an environment where Internet communication is performed from the company LAN via a proxy.

    Please change the BoxTools update "Box Edit Upgrade Service" to the specifications that read the ProxySetting of CurrentUser in the Local System and communicate.

    With the current specifications, automatic updates are not possible.
    Therefore, every time there is a version update, a manual update is performed, which takes a lot of man-hours.

    (OS used: Windows10)

    We have verified and confirmed the following. (The log file has also been confirmed.)

    (1) If the logon of "Box Edit Upgrade Service" is "Local…

  4. Ability to manually update Box Tools

    If Box Tools fails to update automatically, you may need to install or reinstall the latest version of the installer (after uninstalling Box Tools).

    Depending on the company, installation may require administrator privileges on the PC, and updating may not be easy.

    Therefore, it is very convenient to develop a button that can be updated without installation as a standard function of Box Tools.

  5. Box Cataloging Spreadsheet

    I would like a live spreadsheet that shows an outline of our folders and files, who updated them, and when - and that we could add columns to that we manually update. This could be within box or another app.

  6. Allow Pin Feature to files

    Allow a Pin Feature to allow the user to fully customize filing. Make it possible to pin a file(s) in a folder so it will not move in a numerical or alphabetical order but in the order that works for your company or organization.

  8. Box Tools(or other app) Reports

    Ability for Box Admins to run reports to see users who have Box Tools(or other Box Apps) installed. It would make it easier and more efficient for us to contact users who need to update to the latest version if we knew who had which apps and what version.

  9. LocalSystem sees current user's Proxy settings during automatic Box Tools update

    Box Tools Automatic Updates:"Box Edit Upgrade Service", please make sure that LocalSystem refers to the current user's Proxy settings as well as Box Drive automatic update.

    If the logon of "Box Edit Upgrade Service" is LocalSystem, the automatic update of Box Tools will fail. By changing the logon of "Box Edit Upgrade Service" from LocalSystem to the current user, communication via Proxy will be possible and the update will be successful. Also, by setting the Proxy setting equivalent to the current user for LocalSystem with the following command, Box Tools will be updated automatically.

  11. Ability to go back to the root directory of the box tenant

    When editing documents in box, you should leave the file path at the top of the document preview as well as include a mechanism for going back to my box tenant. Navigating backwards via the browser stops all edits and is delayed. Being able to tell box ignore changes and go back to the box directory listings is a better behavior for the user.

  12. Output the hostname of the upload destination to the Box Edit log

    Box Edit selects the upload destination host from the preflight response, and the upload destination is vary.
    If the customer has a strict set of FW rules, only certain files may fail to upload, in which case you will need to get a network capture to verify the destination host.
    Obtaining network captures is a difficult operation for endusers to perform, and it is taking a long time to resolve the issue.
    Please consider outputting the selected hostname to the log.

  15. Allow file to be opened from web UI on double click.

    I like that I can see the preview and other information on the file when I click on the name. However, I would prefer for the file to be opened when I double click on it, instead of having to click and then having to go and click on another menu to open in Microsoft Word. It would be great to have the ability to single-click to view the details, as it is now, and double-click to automatically open a file in Microsoft Word.

  18. Advanced web based Text/Code editor functionality

    The box is missing a Web-based Text/Code editor, providing capabilities similar to Notepad++ with format & code-based markup using Scintilla-like capabilities.

  19. I would like to see the "running application" pop-up automatically removed after the application is opened.

    When you open a native Office application in Box Edit, Box displays the message "Running application".

    The above message remains even after the file is opened, but it's hard to tell if the file is open or not, so can you change the function so that it disappears automatically after the application is launched in Office?

    【日本語】------------------------------------------------------------
    Box EditでOffice系のネイティブアプリを開いた際に"アプリケーションを起動しています"というメッセージがBoxには表示されます。

    上記メッセージはファイルが開いた後も残り続けますが、ファイルが開けているかどうかが分かり辛いため、Officeでアプリが起動された後、自動で消えるように機能を変更して頂けますでしょうか?

  20. Action Item Register

    As a user of BOX I would like to be able to have one consolidated lists of all the action items that arise during meetings and I capture in the agenda template provided by Box. This way I can keep track of these action items in one place rather than having to open each agenda/meeting minutes document to list these in another location for tracking purposes.
