  1. Automatically Lock & Unlock when editing from Web App using Box Edit

    CURRENT UX: User must remember to manually lock and unlock each file once done editing, which is a subpar experience for the user.

    DESIRED UX: When using 'open with' via the webapp (Box Edit), the file is auto-locked (via a prompt), and when the user closes out of the file, it is automatically unlocked.

    We understand the request, but unfortunately this is not on the near-term roadmap. We are currently prioritizing automatically locking/unlocking files on Box Drive for Office files on Windows. We will revisit this feature in the future.

  2. 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

    Because of the downstream impacts, we will not be solving this problem as requested. We will be looking at a more holistic approach to prevent unintended consequences of file operations.

  4. If a user locks the file, it should be only unlockable by that user and an administrator, not other Editors

    Other users unlocking defeats the purpose of locking in the first place.

  6. 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.

  7. Increase Keynote collaboration size limit to match Apples.

    Apples iCloud offers users a 2GB Keynote collaboration limit.

  8. Folder Tree View in WebApp (Windows Explorer/Finder, eBuilder)

    I noticed that Box does not have a high-level folder tree view, except in the 'All Files' page (you click on the arrow next to "All Files"). Many Box folders in my company's folder structure take a very long time to load - however the folder tree view on the 'All Files' page loads quicker, but still not as fast as another application like eBuilder. Having a permanent option on the web application would be very efficient when tracking down files, and load times won't be as cumbersome. Currently, having to click through multiple folders in order to access the…

  9. Ability to tag groups

    I want a function like Teams' "tag".
    Currently, only individuals can mention comments in the data saved in the box,
    I would like to be able to mention in groups.
    Can't you make better use of groups in your management console?
    One of the features of box is that multiple people can edit the same data at the same time, and there are also convenient functions such as comment fields and mention functions.
    Please consider further improving usability.

    Teamsの「タグ」のような機能が欲しい。
    現状、box内に保存したデータ内のコメントにメンションできるのは個人だけだが、
    グループでメンションをできるようにしてほしい。
    管理コンソールのグループを上手く活用できないでしょうか?
    boxには一つのデータを複数人同時編集が可能という特徴があり、コメント欄とメンション機能という便利な機能もあります。
    さらに使い勝手を良くするために検討をお願いします。

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. Box Tools install to be shown as "Box Edit" instead of "Box Tools"

    While I understand the Box Tools installer also contains the Box Local Com Server application, it is there to support Box Edit so labeling the entire installation more explicitly as Box Edit, instead of Box Tools, will be more clear.

  18. Option to open links directly in desktop applications (rather than Box Preview)

    Currently when I receive a link to a file on Box via email, clicking the link takes me to Box Preview. A couple of steps are needed before I can open the file using the relevant desktop application (e.g. Word, rather than Word Online or Box Preview), which is invariably what I want to do. It is problematic to need to access files via a web browser if I am not connected to the internet or if my connection is poor. Please could you introduce a way to quickly open lists directly in desktop applications?

  19. Ability to select BoxEdit even when Box for Microsoft Office co-editing is enabled.

    When Box for Microsoft Office co-editing is enabled, microsoft office files cannot be edited in Box Edit.
    However, there are use cases where we may not want to co-edit.
    Even if the Box for Microsoft Office co-editing feature is enabled, we want to choose whether or not we want to edit in Box Edit.
