  1. All FQDNs should be published in a Json file

    The FQDN you are publishing is incomplete and Box Edit fails to upload the file when I configure FW based on this content.
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043696434

    It would be nice to publish the FQDN in a Json file, just like Microsoft is doing.

  3. new box layout is worse than old

    When you upload long list of images, you can't track any more which one was just opened. It is used to be a bar on left hand side to track where I was last, now not even highlight??? It is going to take me 3x time to find out what was the last image I viewed. So disappointed. Can I please return old layout style, or add the bar to track individual files in each folder.

  5. Box Tools - Excel as default application for CSV and XLS

    We would like Box Edit to have Excel as the default application for all excel files, including CSV.

    Right now we run into an issue with CSV files where it is necessary to perform an operation to copy and then paste to Excel from Notepad. (Since opening CSV files might cause garble due to a character code (UTF-8), we are opening Notepad first and then open Excel files)
    Another workaround would be editing the registry which is risky and inconvenient - which is why we would like Edit to automatically open CSV with Excel as the default

  6. ability to upload direct from a clients google drive to Box

    We have found that most of our clients use google drive for storage of content for us to work with. We could really use a tool that assists us in transfers direct from google drive to our Box

    Thank you

  7. Support the SheetView when using Excel Online by Box Edit

    When filtering an excel file on Box by Excel Online, the filter does reflect to the other users. We would like an option to have the independent filter between users. For Microsoft environment, the Sheet View is now generally available so we want the same functionality on Box as well.

  8. Make an Exit Button Available Again

    The new update removed the ability to exit a document from the File tab. Now I have to type in Box in a new tab and go back to the folder I want by hand every time I want to exit a document and edit another one. Also, it does not always automatically open a new tab anymore when I open a document, which prevents me from being able to have the folder open in another tab.

  9. Submitting Issue

    1. See the scope of this issue from the backend without having to reach out to users to self-report.
    2. Come up with an org-wide solution if this is an extensive problem affecting all users.

  10. embed picture without file name

    I'm trying to embed a picture saved to Box into a project, but the title of the photo, as well as the options to log in or sign up appear always. I'd like to remove that header information from my embedded image.

    Please put the tag button back on the page! I hate having to search through the drop down with the new updates. Weirdly, it appears when you highlight more than one document - but we need it back when only tagging one document!

  13. Box Tools: Change Cache location

    Ability to customise the location of Box Tools folder

    We would like to have the feature to customise the location of Box Tools folders such as logs and cache folder. We want to have those under drive of other volume letter instead of the default location under C drive. This is because the storage size of C drive can be limited.

  14. On PC's there are not many Colour Folder or File Options

    Would love for a cross platform of identification of colour coding files and folders. On a Mac unless everything is operating from the same NAS we can see each other's marks. On a PC a lot of apps don't support colour coding for cloud based software which is grinding my gears.

    I love that there is now commenting and various ways to communicate. Colour Coding would be a great addition if possible. I mainly use Box Sync/Drive though so this may be a lot more complicated but that would be SUPER APPRECIATED if there was such a feature

  16. create folder

    Can we create a new folder that way we can organize documents we upload onto BOX? like if i have a bunch of pictures from a specific vacation, and other pictures from other vacations, i'd rather each picture be in specific folders rather than all over the place and i have to guess when and where the picture or file is and where it belongs to.

    thanks

  18. Add ability to cancel opening a file through Box Edit

    If a large file is accidentally clicked on to open through Box Edit, it would be nice to be able to cancel opening the file. That way, you wouldn't have to wait even longer for the correct file to open.

  19. DocuSign Drafts in Box

    If we have a large signing process going through DocuSIgn, we could have 100 documents that need to go to clients over a short period of time. In DocuSign, we regularly use the Save and Close option to prepare a document, rather than send it. Once we have all the docs preparared with signature blocks etc, we go into each draft and hit Send.

    It would be good if Box could track the Draft in DocuSign, and allow you to go back into the document in Box and send from there. The only workaround is to login to DocuSign to…

  20. Binding existing files/folders to a virtual folder for sharing

    Situation
    I've been working on several projects for a client, with a main folder for each project containing the project files, organised in sub folders. My client asked me if it was possible to point him to one folder that contained the neccessary files from each project for simplified access, without having to send him multiple sharing links to each folder instead.

    Approach
    Normally I would set up that folder on my local computer, put in all the necessary files and upload it, providing a sharing link to my client.

    Suggestion
    What if it was possible to bypass this step…
