  2. Is there a way to make comments on MBox folders private/directed toward specific individuals in an MBox group without seen by others?

    I am part of a team that uses MBox to securely upload and view videos of infants who are identified at risk of adverse neurodevelopmental conditions to conduct a standardized assessment on each infant. Typically, when team members upload videos of their patients, we have to send multiple emails in order to a) notify the team that a new video has been uploaded and b) respond to the individual who uploaded the video to offer feedback/scoring. Is there a way to make the MBox comments privatized in order to reduce a bias effect on scoring the videos (and minimize the…

  4. O365 Collaboration Speed Improvement

    Whatever API is being used with your Microsoft partner is causing a diminished experience when collaborating with more than 10-12 users in an Excel spreadsheet compared to Google Sheets. I understand that these platforms are fundamentally different and handle collaboration with their own set of customized tools, but the experience in collaboration for Excel for numerous users should be as smooth as working on SharePoint or OneDrive. We don't allow Google in our workflow, collaboration in Excel is laggy, slow and terrible.

  7. Ability to find a file or folder using just the ID.

    Is Box working on an easier tool to lookup files and folders based off of ID?

    I'd like to suggest a box tool where we can find the file and folder using just the ID. Having to run a 40+ min report on all of our files and folders anytime a user asks is very time consuming. I get 5+ requests a day.

  9. 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

    I have asked to be notified (in the folder settings) when someone uploads a document but I don't receive any emails. I used to receive emails but I don't anymore. Why did that change??

  12. It would be nice if the "Updated" column showed a time, not just a date, stamp

    We update our files so frequently that the date stamp is not sufficient; we need a time stamp. Thank you!

  15. viewing annotated PDFs with 100% opacity highlights completely blots out text on browser but not acrobat or Docutments by Readdle

    I like to annotate PDFs on my iPad (through Documents) and browser (through Box tools). When I preview a document with 100% opacity highlights on a browser it begins to load with readable text but switches to completely blotted out text when fully loaded. I used 100% opacity because it looks the best on acrobat PDF and ipad app Documents by Readdle. Please change settings so that 100% opacity highlights do not completely blot out text when previewing in browser.

  19. Ability to PAUSE during an audio recording in BOX CAPTURE

    During an audio recording, be able to PAUSE, then continue with same recording - so all audio is contained in same audio file (for transcription) Example; audio interviews; record intro with identifying information, including confidential ID, pause recording, then invite interviewee into interview, then re-start recording. When we send these files for transcription the confidential identifying information is included at the beginning of each file - but the interviewee is not aware of the confidential ID.
