  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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?

  14. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. ”Box Edit” ”logs”

    About the addition of the automatic log deletion function of Box Edit

    I understood that the current maximum value for log storage is as follows
    (現在のログ保存の最大値は以下のようになっていると理解しています。)

    ・Box Edit log: 5 files with a maximum of 5MB per day
    ・Local Com Server Log: 5 files of up to 5MB per day
    ・Upgrade Service Log: 10 files with a maximum of 10MB per day

    Although there is an upper limit per day, the Box Edit logs will continue to accumulate forever.
    We are concerned that if we use the system for a long period of time, the storage capacity will keep increasing…

  20. 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.
