  1. 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.

  2. Ability to set default application for Box Edit opening .md file

    Sometimes Box Edit opening files in the program not set as default on MacOS

    If a user installs Xcode on Mac OS, the user cannot open .md files with default application which set on Mac OS. The user would like to open .md file with Atom.app but it opened with Xcode.
    User can do nothing to change the application. it is the OS that it's selecting XCode when it's installed.

  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.

    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!

  6. 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.

  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.

  8. customized page

    Customizable Box Tools Web Page - When a user is logging into Box, the Box Tools page displays, allowing Box Tools to check / verify security of the user's machine prior to entering the Box environment. However, this web page is not modifiable and because of that, can cause end user confusion. For example, the page displays text to download Box Tools, but if the user already has the package installed, that is not necessary information. This page should be customizable to allow for organizations to add their support contact information and instructions on what to do.

  11. Error Messaging - Update 'File Type Not Supported' Error Message to Be More Specific When the Error is Not Related to File Types

    This is a request to update error messages for Box Edit to be more specific.

    Currently, the red bar that says 'Box Edit does not support this file type' appears for a variety of reasons not limited to just errors due to file type incompatibility. Users could see that error message when trying to use Box Edit with a PowerPoint, Word, or any other supported file type.

    This error also occurs when the Web App is having issues connecting to Box Edit on the actual computer and in other scenarios that are entirely unrelated to file types.

    For this reason,…

  15. 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…

  16. List of All Folders that I own.

    New Feature to allow individual users to pull a Report of all the folders that they personally "Own".

    The reasoning behind this is due to the fact that Lotus Notes Teamrooms are being sunset, and BOX is becoming the repository for many Accounts Contractual Data. From a business controls perspective, "Owners"must now must ensure that they "Secure" confidential contractual data via folder Settings. Since BOX has been around for some time, we could have access to hundreds of folders, and it is very time consuming to check which are the ones we "Own".

  17. 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…
